Access TCA, a firm specializing in exhibits, meetings, events and digital marketing for the last 27 years, has added two account directors to its growing team.
David Brull and Derek Jenkins have joined Access and will be reporting to Laura Milewski, director of business development.
David Brull’s 15 years in sales and marketing include three years with the Trade Show Exhibitors Association (TSEA), where his efforts doubled membership his first year. He recently held a position as national account director at MC2. Access is excited to expand its sales efforts in the Chicago market.
Derek Jenkins has developed and marketed events for 17 years, most recently as event and media sales director for CDM Media, where he orchestrated successful summit meetings for information executives of major technology companies.
“Dave and Derek bring talents and experience that will strengthen our business as Access enters a new phase of growth,” said Jon Ellms, vice president and principal, Access. “As a veteran of the TSEA, Dave knows the tradeshow world from multiple perspectives, and he applies that knowledge to benefit his customers. Derek has spent much of his career on the forefront of event management including virtual meetings and integrated media campaigns. Additionally, he has worked closely with the IT industry and really understands its needs.”
Jenkins and Brull see themselves and Access as a natural fit.
“I was impressed to see the strong emphasis on client outcomes. Access does business the same way I do, focusing on the client’s goal and creating a path to measurable success,” said Jenkins.
“Access has a reputation for a high level of customer satisfaction, and as a sales professional, nothing is more important to me. It’s why I love what I do,” said Brull.
