As the next step in a long-term growth strategy for the full-service sourcing, housing and event management company, Connections Housing announces the opening of its new office in Washington, D.C.
Located at 1201 15th St, NW, Suite 202, the new office will serve as the sales and account management center for the company’s Washington, D.C metro market and eastern region key account business. The new location now joins the Connections Housing full-service sales, operations and call centers in Atlanta – its corporate headquarters — and Las Vegas.
The new D.C. office will provide much needed space for the company’s growing executive management and sales teams. The office will be led by Brad Weaber, former EVP for the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, who joined Connections Housing in the newly created post of Chief Innovation Officer at the end of 2014. He is joined by Tracy Janosko, Vice President of Sales, Eastern Region, who will focus on new business development. Alicia Perez-Arrieta, CMP, who came on board in March of 2015 as Director, Client Management, will also work out of the D.C. office – serving as liaison between Connections Housing and its D.C. | Eastern region key accounts.
“Washington, D.C. is a vitally important location for Connections Housing from both a strategic and service standpoint,” explains Weaber. “Close proximity to our current client base in the metro market and surrounding areas increases our accessibility and allows us to truly maximize our customer service offerings. Our D.C. presence also reflects our long-term commitment to this marketplace – opening the doors for new business growth opportunities.”
Connections Housing has experienced significant growth in recent years. Shortly after Weaber and Perez-Arrieta joined the team, Connections Housing appointed seasoned meeting/hospitality executive Judy Kent to the new post of Vice President, Strategic Sales. Focusing primarily on new business development in the Chicago marketplace, Kent, who came to Connections Housing from Experient, A Maritz Travel Company, will also explore key account growth opportunities in the metro DC and Mid-Atlantic regions. Last year, the company also announced an expansion and relocation of its west coast operations, sales/marketing and call center in Las Vegas, as well as the addition of airline ticketing and travel services to the full roster of housing and meeting management services it provides to its clients.
