About Us


Founded in January 2020, Front Door Marketing has been a company in the making since owner Jim Walrod graduated from college in 2005. With his new business degree, Jim immediately embarked on a career in the promotional marketing sales industry. He worked for fifteen years at a locally based firm that ranks among the country’s largest privately held promotional product companies.

While mastering his craft, Jim earned his employer’s salesperson of the year title six times and became the company’s National Accounts Team Leader. The industry’s not-for-profit trade association, the Promotional Products Association International, recognized Jim through its annual Rising Star Award in 2011.

With the addition of Troy Hill in 2022, the Front Door Marketing team represents more than two decades of combined experience in promotional product sales.
