In 1994, Angie Standard sat down with Kimberly Stewart to discuss starting a business. The company started as Standard Promotions, but when Kimberly Stewart joined as a partner in the second year the name changed to Promotional Partners. Angie and Kimberly have driven the company from Promotional Partners, a promotional product and graphics company, to KDS, a full service marketing and branding agency, adding interactive, interior design and emerging media into the mix.
Active in the Atlanta Apartment Association and Georgia Apartment Association, Angie volunteers her time to the Atlanta Food Bank, Atlanta Golf and Tennis Committee. A lifelong athlete, she holds a degree in Health and Physical Education and continues to stay active by golfing with her dad, early morning workouts and chasing after her sweet dog, Sadie.
Who needs American Idol? When she was a teenager, Angie dreamed of being a professional singer, and even started an all-girl band that opened for Hank Williams, Jr. and Dolly Parton in Dollywood. During her leisure time, you may find her watching movies or spending time with her family, whom she credits with instilling her with the faith and values that keep her grounded every day.
