Hargrove, a nationally renowned general services contractor, recently announced the addition of Bill Lemmon to the Hargrove team as a national sales executive.
Lemmon is the latest to join Hargrove’s growing team of experienced leaders who share a common vision and commitment to its client base.
Lemmon has more than 15 years experience within the meetings and convention industry and was most recently the director, tradeshow sales for the Chicago Convention & Tourism Bureau (CCTB). Prior to his time at the CCTB, Bill was an account executive at Hargrove and is now returning to expand upon his previous success.
“We anticipate Bill making significant strides in the national marketplace from the Chicago office,” said Tim McGill, CEO of Hargrove. “Our clients increasingly rely on us to engage them in a partnership which produces innovative ideas that move the show forward. Bill has a solid background to not only support these needs, but also contribute to Hargrove’s continued growth.”
“I’m glad to return to a wonderful company that has proven to be a compelling option for show organizers, especially as they work to overcome the challenges of the economic downturn,” said Lemmon. “The timing for Hargrove to open a mid-west office couldn’t be better, and I look forward to reaching out to national associations and Chicago-based clients to offer them our services.”
Hargrove has experienced steady growth in the past few years in spite of the economic downturn. The company attributes its growth to an integrated product offering.
Hargrove annually produces more than 1,000 trade shows, events and custom exhibits throughout North America, including Trade Show 200 and Fastest 50 expositions. The company also creates custom exhibits for Fortune 500 clients and is a leader in the industry’s eco-friendly initiatives.
