About Us

Our Story


Haines Maxwell, Jr. started Maxwell & Associates – a promotional products and corporate apparel firm - 30+ years ago on his kitchen table in Fort Mill, South Carolina, merged with a larger company in 2001 and now has reconnected with his entrepreneurial roots by launching Bravo Marketing. His branded-merch-brain has always thought "It's not about the stuff...it's about the impact."  And then there are the QUESTIONS: How is branded apparel and merchandise used to accomplish the mission....how do we> recognize employees, motivate the sales force or distributor network, say "Thank You" to clients, distribute Cool Stuff to our multiple locations, get folks to the trade show booth, roll out a new product, follow up with a great, new prospect?  If you're not addressing these issues with your promo person, we'd recommend a change.

Our Plan

Behind our constant and relentless effort to help firms and organizations promote their brand and create memorable experiences, Bravo is backed up by the iPROMOTEu network which MONTHLY does $10+ million in promotional product and apparel sales. Our back office of 50+ folks helps us bring incredible resources to bear for our clients as our growing group of Brand Warriors in the Southeast help us spread the Branding Love.

Bravo is based in Fort Mill, SC just south of Charlotte, NC, a one-minute walk from the kitchen-table birthplace of Maxwell & Associates in the Bailiwyck neighborhood. Our office and Cool Stuff Studio is located in an office building constructed by the Haines A. Maxwell (Sr!) Company thirty years ago.

Our service is delivered face-to-face by our team in the Carolinas, via the internet administering regional and national fulfillment programs, and promoting American craftsmanship through our Made in the USA promo product site at www.BravoUSA.net

Our Mission

When folks see your branding...we want them to cry out, "BRAVO!"

We want to create WOW experiences for our clients, their employees, friends and fans. And while we are at it…we want to spread love everywhere we go...and change the world.
