June 9, 2022

PowerStick, Ottawa, Ontario, has added industry veteran Tina Berres Filipski to its growing team.

Filipski is the company’s first director of corporate relations. She will be responsible for increasing the supplier’s visibility throughout the promotional products industry with news releases, story placements and by leveraging her strong industry relationships honed over the past 26 years at PPAI, according to the company.

“We have grown our business by consistently delivering high-quality consumer technology solutions in innovative packaging to promotional products distributors,” says PowerStick founder and CEO Nigel Harris. “With new sales targets set for the next 10 years, we need to increase our visibility, and I am thrilled that Tina has agreed to join PowerStick as our first director of corporate relations.

“I have worked with Tina over the years on a number of PPAI projects and have always been impressed by her knowledge and professionalism. She will be a tremendous asset to this organization.”

Harris founded in 2011 with the original PowerStick Classic charger. Since, the Ontario-based supplier has gone on to expand its line with a full collection of high-quality personal electronics.

“I’m excited to join this amazing company,” says Filipski. “I became familiar with PowerStick during my years at PPAI and was always impressed with how Nigel operated the company, and the positive and productive environment he created as well as the high-quality tech products the company manufactures. I never dreamed I’d have the chance to work for this company. It’s an incredible opportunity to use my writing and relationship skills from a fresh perspective to help PowerStick achieve even greater levels of success.” — D.S.
