“Fund Raising Excellence Since 1989”

Meet the Paragon Family

The secret is Our people.


Tom graduated from Bradley University with a Bachelor of Science from the College of Business with a major in marketing. After spending five years with Sun Oil Company as a Petroleum Landman, Tom came back to Evansville to marry his wife Diane Reitz. He then began his career in Product Fundraising with Promar, Inc. as a Sale Representative and was there for 3 years. In 1989, Tom and Diane founded Paragon Promotions, Inc., using their living room as their first “warehouse space.” Tom and Diane have 3 children, Patrick, Lainie, and Sarah. Each have contributed to the growth and success of Paragon from an early age and continue to do so.


Diane and her husband, Tom, are the founders of Paragon Promotions. Since the company’s inception in 1989, Diane has served as the Chief Financial Officer and guided the company to a ten-fold sales increase. She has seen her company grow from 6 to 130 full and part-time local employees. Diane has six sisters, and all helped Paragon get its start. Three of them, Martha Reitz Steckler, Chris McNeely, and Kathy Reitz, continue to actively work in the business. Tom and Diane have three children, Patrick, Lainie, and Sarah. Each of them contribute to the family business.

V.P. of Sales

Martha has been employed by Paragon Promotions since 1996, and before that time she also helped her sister and brother-in-law, Diane and Tom Stone, tally order forms and pack product for Paragon fundraisers.  Martha graduated from Indiana State University with an Associates Degree in Business in 1976.  She worked for Bristol-Meyers Squibb for 19 years as a coordinator in the Marketing Services Department.  It was a natural transition to work as an outside sales representative for Paragon, and in 2005 she was promoted to Vice President of Sales.  She married for the first time at age 57 to Allen Steckler and continues to enjoy her sales job at Paragon Promotions.

Project Consultant

Aleigha joined Paragon in Spring of 2022. She has taught full day preschool for six years and has been working in the school setting for eight years. She really enjoys working closely with schools and planning events; this allows her to be a part of her kid’s school where she serves as PTO President. She is super excited about working for Paragon and being able to form relationships with the schools. She was born and raised in Shelbyville, IN.  She is married to her husband, Tyler and they have 3 children- Carson, Kai, and Mia. The whole family enjoys sports-both watching and playing- as well as travelling and doing outdoor activities like hiking, boating, and camping.
