About Us

In September of 2011 Gib Carson Associates partnered with Van & Co., a Mid Atlantic rep agency to form Van Carson & Co. The relationship between Van and the Carsons goes back to 1972 when Gib Carson Sr., then the National Sales Director for Carson Industries hired Van as one of their first reps to cover the Pennsylvania region.

Van and Sandi Neher, the principles of Van & Co. have been in the gift industry since 1968. Over the last 43 years they have built a successful sales agency with a family feel, a model of taking care of their reps and building customer loyalty.

In 1976, Gib Carson Sr. left Carson Industries to start his own rep agency Gib Carson Associates with a regional focus in the Mid Atlantic. Eventually, with much success, opportunities allowed for expansion into the South East and a permanent showroom in the AmericasMart building.

When we heard that Van and Sandi were contemplating retiring from the management side of the business to follow their passion for selling, we approached them with the idea of keeping the Van & Co. name and reputation under our current Gib Carson management team. Van & Co. is now called Van Carson & Co., the sister company of Gib Carson Associates representing our vendor partners in the Mid Atlantic, Ohio Valley, and North East regions to include VA, WV, MD, DC, DE, PA, OH, NJ, NY, RI, CT, NH, MA, ME, and VT.

Van Carson & Co. is headquartered and operated out of Midlothian, VA alongside Gib Carson Associates. We are excited about serving you with the same passion and professionalism from our family of representatives.
