Teel Launches New Marketing Agency

After serving as the National Sales Manager 12 years, Gibb Teel will be moving on from his position at Dream Maker Spas to focus on his independent sales agency, Teel Marketing Solutions. 

Gibb and his wife, Michelle, founded Teel Marketing Solutions 18 months ago; the company will specialize in marketing representation for manufacturers in the Southern U.S. Teel Marketing will continue to represent Dream Maker Spas and Sunrise Spas while providing consulting services to both groups. 

In his tenure at Dream Maker Spas, Teel oversaw both marketing and sales efforts and helped Dream Maker grow from a startup manufacturer to one of the most recognized brands in the industry. Teel was also instrumental in the successful transition of ownership after the 2011 purchase of Dream Maker by LMI Roto.

FILBUR Manufacturing Supports Challenged Athletes Foundation in Triathlon Event 

For the third consecutive year, FILBUR Manufacturing will support The Challenged Athletes Foundationā€™s annual triathlon in October. Now in its 20th year, the Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge attracted more than 5,000 people last year and brought in more than $1.4 million to support The Challenged Athletes Foundation, whose mission is to help individuals with physical challenges get involved in sports. 

ā€œYou really have to experience it first-hand to realize the impact this organization has on the individuals it supportsā€¦and how many it takes to pull it off,ā€ says Shelly Johnson, Marketing Manager for FILBUR Manufacturing. ā€œIn essence, the support these challenged athletes and their families receive extends beyond athletics and profoundly affects their lives as a whole. FILBUR Manufacturing is proud to be part of something so important and positive.ā€ 

SDTC features a ā€œchallengeā€ distance triathlon, which includes a 1-mile swim, 44-mile bike ride and 10-mile run, in which more than 200 challenged athletes compete side-by-side with 500 able-bodied athletes. 

Funds raised over the course of the weekend allow CAF to support challenged athletes by providing grants for adaptive sports equipment, training and competition expenses so they can live active lifestyles and participate in sports. In addition, CAF will raise awareness and change perceptions of what is possible for people with physical disabilities. By participating in the triathlon, cycling marathon, 5K and kids run, more than 200 challenged athletes will demonstrate that there are no limits to their success in sports and life.
