Pictured: Incoming CEO/President Richard P. Curran
EXPO Convention Contractors, Inc., a Florida-based general contractor, has promoted Richard P. Curran, vice president, to CEO and president, effective immediately as his father, founder and former president Richard J. Curran, transitions to chairman.
“I am grateful for the training and mentoring over the past 18 years that I have received from my father,” says the younger Curran. “He is an icon in this industry and it is evident from my travels all over the U.S. as I encounter many people who respect him. It’s an honor to have his trust and to take this role and responsibility. EXPO has enormous potential and I am excited to continue expanding and improving our capabilities, just as my father did for many years. My intention is to maintain our family business values that we are small enough to be personable yet large enough to be exceptional.”
During this process, his father will continue to be involved on a consulting and mentoring level, but will step away from the day-to-day operation.
“EXPO has a long, successful history with talented people, assets, and infrastructure,” says Chairman Curran. “I have great confidence in Richard and the executive leadership team’s ability to take the right actions to continue to grow in the tradeshow & event industry as it evolves into the future. I’m looking forward to my advisory role during this transformational time for EXPO.”
