Kip Abshire, Owner / Sales

I have been in sales or sales management for all of my professional life. I graduated with a BS in Marketing from East Carolina University in 1982. Being the proud father of 5 children and all being born within 7 years, my life has always had to have reasonable organization and structure to survive. I am very proud of the fact that CCT has successfully been in business for over 30 years selling Caps, Apparel and all types of Promotional Products. Our promise is to always give the customer the best overall value when they seek logo products of any type. We will never compromise our quality or integrity to earn additional profit. Please know that we at CCT are very proud of our business and our relationship with literally hundreds of customers across the US and we appreciate in advance any opportunity to earn your trust.

Kristopher Abshire, Sales

After graduating from East Carolina University I immediately thought of myself following in my dads footsteps. I had watched and listened all my life to what seemed to be selling, sales, and marketing skills and I thought I would love to possibly do the same. This business is challenging but I feel my personality is suited for the atmosphere and with everyone having to promote their own perspective business in one way or the other, you never run out of customers to call on. Hopefully one day one of my children in time will also want to carry on this legacy of CCT. Please let me help you find exactly the product you need to help your business be recognized.

Greg Craft, Sales

Since graduating from the University of North Carolina in 1980, I have spent my career in the marketing and advertising business in the Triangle. I have worked with all types of businesses to maximize the impact with their advertising investment. I look forward to sharing Carolina Custom Traders’ caps, apparel and promotional items with my past and future clients. CCT has been serving the Triangle for 30 years with quality products at competitive pricing. Caps, apparel and promotional items continue to be one of the most cost effective advertising tools. Call or e-mail me and I will be happy to show you how we can work for you.
