CSI Expositions Tradeshows Conferences, an Arizona-based full-service tradeshow decorator, announces the addition and promotion of four new positions throughout the company. These occupations range from a new graphic designer to a new executive vice president.
Tracey Swainey, who began her tradeshow career with GES Exposition Services in 2000, has been given the position of customer service representative.
“We are pleased to welcome Tracey to our CSI family,” said Ken Porter, president of CSI. “Her energy and dedication to distinction are positive to make her a vital member of our fine expert team.”
CSI has also named a new graphic designer.
Georgia Davison has over 20 years of design and graphic display services, signage, and multimedia materials. Davison joined CSI to assist with the management of the graphics department. In the past, Davison owned her own display and exhibit design company and worked with companies such as Shamrock Foods, MicroAge and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Karen May, VP sales and marketing, says Davison has widespread experience with exhibit design. “Georgia brings so much to the table; our clients are going to be delighted,” said May.
The new lead foreman at CSI will be Bret Rogers. He will oversee and handle delivering service to all of CSI’s show managers as well provide daily support to account managers
and project managers.
Rogers began his exposition career in 1999 with National Exposition Services, where he stayed for 9 years. He started as a warehouse operations person and was promoted within the same year to show foreman. Rogers has spent the last two years as a union carpenter with IATSE 336.
“We are very impressed with his ability to make tough decisions and handle himself in a professional manner,” said Brent Athon, VP operations for CSI.
And finally, Karen May has been named executive vice president.
May has a 20-year record of achievement in driving multimillion dollar sales growth while providing leadership in highly spirited markets. She has established a track record in developing long-standing relationships with clients based on integrity.
“In 2010, May demonstrated her leadership and innovation with positioning CSI in social media and face-to-face convergence,” said Porter.
Porter continued by saying, “The trade show industry has been hit very hard during this recession, but we’ve been able to grow by leaps and bounds during these tough times, adding new clients and staff.”
