Jill Waite, a new account director at Derse, will utilize her 25 years of experience in brand marketing to provide account leadership, program development and program management. Waite also will consult and guide Derse clients through all the service phases, from strategic planning and design to production and logistics.
Louie Szi, the new production supervisor of the Las Vegas division, brings with him 32 years of leadership roles, including shop foreman, project management and production and operations management.
