Joining the company is Paul Lane as a sales manager. According to company officials, Lane’s focus on improving sales growth and customer retention will be welcomed.
“We had a clear definition of the type of person and manager we wanted to hire for our global expansion, and it was the professionalism and expertise seen within the conference industry that made it clear for us to hire from within our customer market. We are committed to dynamic revenue growth in this sector, and with Paul’s direction, we are looking forward to an explosive Q3 2014,” stated Richard Green, CEO and founder, evvnt.
Lane will be responsible for managing and growing the evvnt sales team who have now proven sales success in over 70 countries worldwide.
“I have been involved in sales in my previous roles. evvnt is the only company in the market offering distribution and publishing software to event managers, and as a consequence enabling each event to dramatically improve its SEO,” said Lane. “I look forward to the new challenge that this will present and I am keen to work with the rest of the sales team driving evvnt’s growth.”
Lane has more than nine years of experience in selling high-ticket B2B sponsorship, exhibitions and marketing intelligence. He brings to evvnt more than 17 years’ experience in senior sales and business development roles. This is combined with his cross-cultural interpersonal skills through dealing with senior management from Europe, Asia and the Americas.
