Linda Didion literally grew up in the promotional products business in Saint Charles county. Her father, Tom Brown – former Mayor of Saint Peters, founded Motivational Concepts in (1979). Linda followed in his footsteps, bringing creative promotional solutions to clients across the country through their family business.
Many years later, Didion joined RLK & Associates, Inc., another family-owned and Saint Charles-based promotional products business founded in 1992 by Rick and Vicky Kuhn. RLK had the infrastructure of warehousing, distribution, corporate web stores and in-house embroidery that would allow Didion to expand the products and services she could offer to her clients. The organization also had the family dynamic and commitment to comprehensive client service that were important to her.
The commitment at RLK is to bring big, comprehensive promotional solutions to clients with the personal attention of a small business.
“Our staff is still a small, dynamic group of very creative, resourceful people,” said Didion. “We realize that personal service has allowed our organization to grow and that continuing to provide that level of service, combined with quality products, is the most important aspect from our clients’ perspective.”
RLK provides hundreds of thousands of products from manufacturers around the world, including traditional promotional products such as mugs and pens, but also custom corporate apparel, American-made and Union decorated products, premium gifts, safety awards and trophies, meeting supplies, displays, and much more.
Many clients rely on RLK to inventory, store and distribute their logo merchandise through a corporate webstore program. Whether interested in RLK’s capabilities for individual orders or looking to them for fulfillment services, clients find RLK’s warehousing, receiving, distribution and inventory storage facilities capable of meeting their needs.
In her partnership with RLK, Didion found an organization that felt like home to her. If you know Linda Didion, you know animals are near and dear to her heart. And that’s something she shares with many at RLK. RLK’s office is dog-friendly … just ask Oreo, their resident client-greeter, and staff morale-booster!
