Coming aboard as an exhibit house account executive for the Central and Southeastern U.S. states is Victoria Shelton, who is based in Atlanta. Elevated to events account executive for the Dallas District is Kim Dubose.
As Victoria Shelton assists exhibit design professionals with their tradeshow and exhibit furnishing needs, she will also help CORT grow an important region of the country.
“We are excited to expand our coverage and leverage Victoria’s client-side agency-level experience and perspective to enhance our customer service to even higher levels,” said Dave Flory, director national accounts and exhibit house sales, CORT.
