Condit Exhibits is excited to announce the promotion of Kevin Trainor to president. Kevin recently celebrated his 25th anniversary with the company; hired first as a designer, later advancing to design director, and for the last three years, serving as president of the Chicago division. He brings a wealth of design experience coupled with expertise in sales, marketing, and business development to his new role as Condit’s president. Since the 2019 acquisition of the Chicago facility, Kevin has been instrumental in leading that location, first through the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequently to record levels of growth in revenue, staffing, and clientele as well as significant diversification toward new vertical markets. Condit looks forward to him bringing the same level of energy, experience, and confidence to the entire enterprise.
Kevin is passionate about the events industry and about great design. “I can’t imagine a better business than ours. We get to create one-of-a-kind, three-dimensional marketing and learning environments and to watch the organizations that we help grow and thrive,” says Kevin Trainor. “It’s fast-paced, constantly evolving, and deeply rewarding. When you see the crowds gathering at the opening of an event or exhibit, and you think back on what it took to get there, it’s just thrilling to see it come to life!”
Condit has established a reputation as a high-design, high-quality, and high-service company, and building on those values will be the guiding force in Kevin’s leadership. “I come from the design side, and inspired design is what has put us on the map. We’ll continue to strengthen our creative offering by attracting great talent while keeping on top of trends in design, materials, and technology,” continues Trainor. Kevin’s strategic updates to Condit’s software and processes, whether for sales, production, or account management, will be key to maintaining high standards of craftmanship and service. A renewed emphasis on sustainability and corporate responsibility will assure that Condit continues to be an exemplary civic partner.
Expansion into new markets, facility improvements, and growth in both locations are all part of Kevin’s roadmap in the years ahead. “There’s no better person to put at the helm of this organization than Kevin Trainor,” says CEO Mike McGowan. “He knows the ins and outs of the industry and the core of our business. We’re all anticipating great things from him as president.”
