OUR MISSION

Small but Mighty

Having been around for 35 years, we have built a strong reputation in Canada as a steady and stable manufacturer of NXP products in print finishing, bindings, office supplies, displays, and equipment, a supplier of restaurant covers and synthetic paper under our Zodia brand. Through excellence in service levels and a strong commitment to educating our resellers and their customers on the best possible solutions for their needs, we set ourselves apart from other providers. We offer solid quality products and competitive pricing. 

We’re a small but mighty team in terms of service and customer focus.

Our team is diverse, inclusive, and believes in a strong sense of community and belonging. We all have a deep love for our customers, and we recognize that we exist because of your continued loyalty to our services.

While we’re not perfect, we strive to be better versions of ourselves every day and make a lasting impact through driving innovation, surprise, and delight curiosity to serve our customers memorably.

Meet the Team

Julie Payumo

Julie Payumo

President and CEO

Julie is the President and CEO of HOP Inc Canada, currently holding the longest tenure with the company at 27 years. Through progression and advancing roles within the company, including Controller and Director, she has been instrumental in ensuring HOP’s future’s long-term success and stability. Her superpower at HOP is the financial acumen she brings to the books and ensuring profitability balanced with providing the right products at competitive prices. As a nature lover, her gardening thumb is a force to be reckoned with, and she has been known for adopting orphaned plants and nursing them back to a better-than-thriving state. She also loves scenic bike rides, traveling to new countries, and a refreshing swim after a long day at work.

Jasmine Roswell

Jasmine Roswell

Sr. Manager, Sales & Customer Experience

Jasmine joined HOP to support business continuity during a period of transition. With a strong background leading large training businesses and HR functions for top companies including Apple, Microsoft, and Oracle – HOP’s adventure took her entirely outside her comfort zone. As a 20 year veteran in HR, certified learning, and development practitioner, she has quickly leveraged transferable skills to lead the Sales and Marketing team and has broadened their breadth and depth of product knowledge. Her high level of emotional intelligence is a vital part of her success, tapping into people’s strengths and enabling them while building trust and integrity with everything she does. She’s currently at the next level of motherhood – with 4 young adults and a husband she adores. She plans to travel the world in the next 10 years and continue her luxury goods addiction.

Janelle

Janelle

UX Research & Design

Janelle started as our marketing intern in early 2018, and thrived in our office environment. She has brought her previous supervisory experience and existing creative interests together to become a key supporter to many facets of the business. Her willingness to learn, attention to detail, and curiosity towards innovation are greatly appreciated by the team. Passionate about the intersections of tech and design, she is always excited to join any conversation about artificial intelligence and the ways machine learning will continue to incorporate itself into the norms of the future.

Diana Zilic

Diana Zilic

Supervisor, Shipping & Receiving

Diana grew up at HOP, literally! From the humble beginnings of an entry-level sales position, she quickly realized her passions were more around fulfillment-related activities and inventory management. Diana currently heads shipping and receiving in a supervisory capacity and has been with us for 20 years. When asked what her favorite HOP product was, without hesitation, she said it was our Bindings, our very first product sold in Canada. With so many colors and size combinations – the possibilities are endless.
Outside of work, family is #1; she enjoys splish-splashing at the local swimming pool with her hubby and kiddies, Ivana and Mia, and spending quality time appreciating each day as a blessing.
