Promote-It Trophy & Clothing Co. started back in 1990 as Bannockburn Sporting Trophies which grew from Bannockburn Cabinetmaking which ran from 1986 to 1996. David was a 14yr Board member with St.Marys FC and also a GFL Board member for 12yrs. During this time he was also the football manager and co-coordinator for the GFL Interleague team who were very successful during this time. David took it upon himself one year to make trophies for St.Mary’s FC to give the club ‘something different’ and he succeeded. The trophies were made from custom wood bases and after a few trials of design and paint, David and his then cabinetmaking apprentice son Luke would go on to make all the bases for a few years.
The company then got into supplying trophies & medical tape to a few clubs in the GFL, then after the word starting getting around club apparel started, first were the Polo’s then being the 90’s, Bomber jackets were all the craze. It was great to see clubs all with their own bomber jackets getting around Geelong. This was a turning point for the business.
In 1997 the company relocated to Geelong, Pam left her job to work with David, the company changed its name to Promote-It Trophy & Clothing Co. and has boomed from there.
Their Daughter Beck joined the business in 2003 and started the in house embroidery side of Promote-It Trophy & Clothing Co. and hasn’t looked back from there, what she cant do isn’t worth doing!
