AV Dimensions, Inc. (AVD) recently appointed Rob Vicks as account executive at its Chandler corporate offices. Vicks will help AVD grow its customer base by identifying and bringing in new clients and researching the market for audio/visual presentation opportunities in the meeting and convention industries.
Vicks has enjoyed a rich career in event planning and technology. Prior to joining AVD, he was a sales manager/producer at Presentation Services Audio Visual, the director of sales at AV Concepts and an account executive for Hewlett Packard at Direct Alliance.
“I see the event management industry changing as the younger generation brings in a new overall feel of what meetings are supposed to be,” said Vicks. “They are avid internet and social media users and they want to stay connected. The old days of one person lecturing for 45 minutes are gone. Today’s attendees want general sessions without a theme, open mike time and opportunities to share their input. I try to stay young in my thinking and to evolve and appreciate their needs.”
According to AVD, Vicks’ forward-thinking business mind, balance of artistic and technical abilities and his natural sales and leadership skills are ideal for this position. He has a consistent track record of high performance results with a customer-centric approach.
