Behind the Tees: Justin McKibben
The team at Melmarc works hard to bring you a consistently high quality product and we’re really proud of the work they do. Take a look “Behind the Tees” and learn a little bit about them.
Justin McKibben is Melmarc’s Sales and Marketing manager. You could say that Justin grew up in the business: he started pulling squeegees at his father’s graphic and tee printing company when he was just 13. After his father closed the business, Justin joined Melmarc. Though he jumped ship in 2005 to try his hand at retail, the company lured him back to the fold five years ago.
I’m the Sales & Marketing Manager
My role is finding customers that think what Melmarc thinks and partner with them to build successful t-shirt programs.
I’m empowered by anything with a beat; music makes my world go round! Whenever possible I listen to music — at my desk, in the car, at a club or live on stage.
Band: Mumford and Sons; Spotify station: Poolside; Song: Clique by Kanye West, Jay-Z and Big Sean
I choose what Spotify station I’m going to listen to for the drive. It sets my mood.
Travel the world with my wife seeing new countries and experiencing interesting places together
That I’m an XBox junkie! I once received the Xbox Live report and I had played 45 hours for the month…Houston, I have a problem!
…with my family and friends. I enjoy all kinds of kid sporting events — soccer, baseball, football, surfing, running, and neighborhood gatherings.
Converse Chuck Taylors, perfect fitting selvage denim, a white woven button up, interesting t-shirts, great leather belt, a solid black suit, fun boardies, flips, a warm coat, and a travel bag.
Planning and putting first things first. I’ve always been a scheduler and making time for my wife, daughter, son, brother, grandma, mom and dad is important to my peace of mind.
I’ve always said my true calling is the music business.
I love to travel so this is a hard one…Greece, Spain, France are top of the list.
