Eagle Management Group (“Eagle”) announced it added Gary Barbara to its account management team. Gary’s 25 years in the tradeshow industry have allowed him to develop deep relationships and refine valuable skills that he is eager to bring to Eagle. In his role as account manager, he supports key clients in their preparation for a successful show time. He is also responsible for estimating labor calls on prospective projects.
Gary was exposed to the tradeshow industry by family members who have long worked in it. He started his career in 1997 pulling and prepping portable shipments for an exhibit house. Over the next 2+ decades, he learned the ins and outs of delighting customers in account management and sales roles. Most recently, he worked for a labor company where he managed $5 million in sales with exhibitors throughout North America and Europe.
Gary brings a fresh perspective to Eagle; his wealth of experience and knowledge combined with his openness to new technologies and inclination to innovate prove to be an impressive mix. Eagle is lucky to welcome him to its team.
“Gary is a wild card. He not only has the detail-oriented attention of an account manager, he can estimate labor calls like a city manager and grow relationships like an account executive. We are happy he chose to join Eagle,” comments President David Holloway.
“We are thrilled to have Gary Barbara on the team. We feel he is a great fit at Eagle. His 25 years in the industry and the knowledge and relationships that come along with it are unbeatable!” says Vice President of Sales and Marketing Laura Fee.
