Las Vegas-based Marquis Exhibits announce two recent new hires to their North American operation. John Larson (pictured left), has joined as director of business development and Adryenne Johnson (pictured right) joins the team as an account manager.
Larson brings more than 20 years of experience in exhibit sales and planning and prior to joining Marquis, he worked with industry giants Derse and GES as an award-winning senior account executive. Larson lives in Wisconsin with his wife Karen and son Miles.
“John’s reputation as a leader and expert in the industry is unquestioned,” says Joseph Holgado, president/CEO of Marquis Exhibits. “Knowing John since my first day in the industry, it’s an addition that makes me especially happy. He is as good as it gets with client attraction and retention.”
Johnson grew up in an event industry family which piqued her interest early in life as her mother told war stories from the tradeshow floor and she has honed her own skills over the past few years at GES and Steelhead Productions. She lives in Las Vegas with her husband and is busy with her two sons and two daughters.
“The focus on enhancing and growing our Las Vegas headquarters is centered around attracting and retaining talented people like Adryenne,” says Jimmy Bastille, Marquis vice president. “Her positive attitude is contagious. It sounds like a broken record, but we are very lucky to have her as part of the team.”
Holgado adds that they are looking for Las Vegas-based CAD detailers.
