About Top 2 Bottom 

 

 

Top 2 Bottom began in March of 2008 by Ed and Jill, in their home, as a "part-time" business to support her work as a marketing consultant for Century Boats. When her job ended in 2010, they decided to put all their efforts into T2B. Since then, it has grown by double digits every year. In 2016 we moved the business out of the house into our former space of roughly 1200 square feet. In October of 2021, we moved to our new facility of nearly 7000 square feet!

  

What we do is hard to describe - we like to say we are a "boutique marketing agency" in that we provide unique, customized services for our clients. We pride ourselves on customer service - we don't just say it, we live it.  As a promotional product/apparel distributor, T2B is in the top 5% of sales in our industry, nationwide, for single owned businesses. Most distributors our size are part of larger franchises, but we have chosen to stay "single” so we have control of how we shape and run our business.

In 2016, the company moved from out of the Moore’s house and into a 1200 square foot facility. In October of 2021, Top 2 Bottom moved into its current building, spanning a size of nearly 7000 square feet. Below is a list of our current employees and a brief background on them along with their role at T2B.

 

 

 

Meet the Team!

 

 

Jill Moore (President/Account Executive) – After receiving her Advertising/PR degree from Oklahoma Christian University in 1992, she bounced around different advertising agencies in Louisiana. One of those jobs led her to the marine industry, which then paved the way to her role as Marketing Director for Century Boats. Relationships she made during that time are still active at Top 2 Bottom. Jill oversees sales, new client development, HR with Ed and overall making sure the work gets done.

Ed Moore (Sec/Treasurer - Accounting)  A soccer star in college, Ed graduated with a business degree in 1982. He likes to say he never really knew what he wanted to be when he grew up, but Ed believed in Jill's vision for Top 2 Bottom. Ed handles all things accounting, overall operations, HR, and his former merchandising experience comes in to play when it comes to setting up live stores and our own show room floor. Ed makes sure you get paid, and he will keep you laughing!

 

Michael Derr (Account Executive) – Ed and Jill met Michael as an intern in 2015 when Top 2 Bottom ran a fan shop for a minor league baseball team, the Air Hogs. Michael started his senior year of college, with duties including printing t-shirts out of the bedroom in the Moore’s house, completing deliveries, and running errands. He graduated from the University of Texas Arlington in 2016 with a degree in Marketing. At that time, Top 2 Bottom’s business/sales started taking off, so he was brought on full time to be an account executive. Michael works with schools, non-profits, some local businesses and currently, a few large, regional and national accounts. Michael is the "steady/calm" at Top 2 Bottom.

 

Stephanie Hines (Shipping/Accounting) – In the fall of 2017, Top 2 Bottom’s growth required more help and so along came the wonderful Stephanie! Stephanie's previous experience in different business environments made her the perfect candidate to do anything and everything as Top 2 Bottom experienced its first big growth spurt. Because the webstores have grown so much, her main job is shipping/invoicing webstore orders, and she also helps Ed with various accounting. Stephanie is that employee that is willing to do everything with a smile on her face! Steph is also a great listener and advice giver!

 

Natalie Barron (Office Manager/Production Manager) – Late 2020, in the height of the pandemic, the e-commerce websites continued to grow and grow. Natalie had been a private teacher for a special needs student, but unfortunately left because of the pandemic. She started in a "part-time/few months" job, but Ed and Jill quickly realized what a gem they had found! Her experience and organization skills combined make her the perfect person to run the craziness that is production! Natalie is the “captain” in the back that makes everything run smoothly, making sure orders are processed, sent to decoration and then out to clients. Natalie will also make sure you have office supplies, plates to each lunch on and lunch to fill those plates on employee lunch days. Natalie is our bundle of energy and joy!

 

Jen Arias (Graphic Designer) – In May of 2021, Top 2 Bottom needed more hands-on deck for the growing e-commerce websites, and along came Jen to help with that! Jen is super creative Jen created all the new signage, business cards and wall art for the new Top 2 Bottom building. She works with  the account team on e-commerce websites, as well as other graphic arts projects. Super creative, quiet yet funny, Jen has become a bright spot in the office! She is a recent graduate of the University of Texas Arlington. 

 

Taylor Metcalf (Webstore Manager/Graphic Designer) – From Panama City, Florida, Taylor packed up and moved to Texas in October of 2021. Her degree in Graphic Design/Advertising from Troy University was the perfect mix for her to start taking over some of our larger webstore clients. She also helps build new webstores and works on graphic arts/design projects. Walk in her office and it will always be warm with good oxygen – she is a plant lover!

 

Jayson Christian (Production Intern) – Jayson joined the team December 2021. His primary job is to print apparel that comes from webstore orders, but he is also the backup driver for delivery jobs. Jayson is currently a high school student and will continue at Top 2 Bottom during his senior year.

 

Paula Nowlin (Production Assistant) – Retired after 30+ years of teaching, Jill reached out to Paula in November of 2021 to help with a project that eventually turned into a part-time position. Paula assists production checking in orders, helping with inventory, and anything else needed to help move product through the doors. Paula is always good for a hug and a big smile! We love when she walks in with a container full of tasty treats!

 

Susan Townsend (Accounting Clerk) – Looking for a part time job after she retired, Susan joined our team in late 2021 to help with fulfillment orders and has since moved into an accounting position. Susan appears to be the quiet, meek one at first, but we all know Susan is full of great one-liners and a dry sense of humor that makes everyone laugh out loud!

 

Meagan Rethman (Account Coordinator) – Meagan arrived to the Top 2 Bottom family in March of 2022 as an Account Coordinator. She is a graduate Texas Tech University - Wreck Em'! Her degree in Communications and Public Relations allowed her to travel the country as a political intern, and when that was over, she packed up and moved to Dallas! Meagan works with the whole team on purchase orders, researching promotional products, putting together client presentations, and learning products. She also assists Jill with her orders and client needs. 

 

Daniela Sancen (Account Executive) – A recent graduate from the University of Texas Arlington, Daniela has her Bachelor's of Business Administration in Information Systems. She is mom to a tiny human, a beautiful 6-year-old son, and loves spending time with her family in her free time. She was brought in to help with some of the larger clients, and her steady, calm demeanor is a breath of fresh air amongst the chaos. Dani has a great attitude and her smile will light up a room.

 

Luke Phillips (Webstore Coordinator) – Luke joined the same time as Dani and will have multiple roles with us. He has been with us for more than a year now and has learned to process orders, check-in and use the heat press and cap press. He also runs deliveries, and you can always hear him humming or singing and even writing lyrics for fun. He has received acceptance from UNT and will start this spring. In his free time, he likes to hang out with his girlfriend, family and friends, and play basketball. 

 

Jenny Tovar (Office Manager) – Daniela introduced us to her cousin Jenny in October of 2022, and we are so happy to have her as our Office Manager. Jenny was a manager for a real estate office before joining the Top 2 Bottom team. She makes sure we have all the supplies necessary to function each day and assists Ed with accounting. She has been a big help organizing our space and making it more functional. Jenny enjoys photography and spending her time with family and friends.
