Distributor Geiger (PPAI 105182), headquartered in Lewiston, Maine, has acquired Bloomington, Illinois-based CM Promotions (PPAI 334193) as part of its continued expansion strategy and to broaden its client base in the Midwest.

Connie Mandula, a veteran of the promotional products industry, started CM Promotions in 2000 and became the sole owner in 2004, eventually bringing two of her daughters on board—Holly Hedges in 2005 and Alyssa Mandula in 2016. CM Promotions will continue to support its current clients and community activities as a part of the Geiger family under the leadership of Connie Mandula. Geiger's technology will enable CM Promotions to add company stores to their services and better support its client base.
