Diane met and fell in love with her husband Carey, while he was the DJ for her Dad’s 50th birthday party in 1985. Diane began working with Carey and together they created, Carey Smolensky Productions. This venture started by selling invitations and creating centerpieces and quickly grew. In 1987 we began coordinating full scale corporate and social events, both locally and nationwide. It was through this experience that Carey and Diane saw the need for a custom and specialties company; as the perfect compliment to our other divisions thus providing convenience for our clients. 1998 Custom Specialty Promotions was created as a division of Carey Smolensky Productions. Through many hours of self taught technical education, Diane has learned this industry from the ground up. In January 2006, Custom Specialty Promotions became incorporated as a woman owned business with Diane Smolensky as its President and owner. It is this drive and determination that has served Diane her entire life as she is a survivor of being seriously injured by a drunk driver as well as a survivor of breast cancer. Diane instills her positive outlook on life along with her business ethics of integrity and honesty not only to her children but to her sales staff as well. As the business continued to grow so too, did their family with the births of Blake in 1989 and Rachel in 1991. Family is and has always been Diane’s main priority.
