Global Experience Specialists (GES), a global full service provider for live events, announced the joining of a senior vice president to its U.S. Events team. Hilbert’s team will focus on BtoB and BtoC experiences, bringing his 25 years’ experience in the event, agency and entertainment business.
Most recently, Hilbert was senior vice president of client engagement & strategy at TBA Global. Prior to joining TBA Global, he held senior level positions at other agencies and on the client side with Live Nation Entertainment, Ryan Partnership, Unilever and Labatt, USA.
“Dan is an exciting addition to our sales leadership team,” said GES Chief Sales Officer Jeff Quade. “He has deep understanding of true experiential marketing and what it takes to make clients successful. Our corporate clients will benefit from his strong experience in everything from crafting the right attendee journey, to stage and scenic design, technology and measurement.”
Hilbert earned his MBA with an emphasis in Marketing and Management from the University of
Connecticut and his Bachelor of Science in Quantitative Business Analysis and Statistics from Pennsylvania State University.
“I am truly delighted to be part of the GES team, and look forward to growing its corporate and consumer events business,” Hilbert shared. “Between the breadth of GES’ resources and its contemporary view of events, there is no doubt that the organization will continue to be a global leader in live experiences. The GES Events team will set the benchmark for awe-inspiring live experiences that elicit positive emotions, over-deliver against client objectives and drive business results.”
GES also promoted Doug Shockley to senior vice president of global events, with responsibility for leading GES’ BtoB events sales team and serving clients such as Boeing and Mary Kay.
Eddie Newquist, chief creative officer at GES, will focus on BtoC events, including the AVATAR global touring exhibition that will be created in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox.
