WEST PALM BEACH, FL - (Marketwired - November 08, 2016) - Joseph Loch has been named the new President of EmbroidMe as announced by the United Franchise Group (UFG) of West Palm Beach, Florida, in late September. With over 300 resource centers worldwide, EmbroidMe is the world's largest diversified promotional products franchise, offering embroidery, customized promotional products and screen printing services to many local businesses.

Loch brings to EmbroidMe many years of working with small business owners, which is valuable to both the corporate and franchisee levels of the organization.
