Continued growth at The Expo Group, a general services contractor, brought a vice president of Enterprise Operations.
Eric Payne will apply 15 years of business leadership and industry experience to his new role with the company.
“Our company’s agility means all of our projects entail elements of customer service, operational efficiency and people management, and Eric’s diverse experience makes him the perfect person to direct our operations as we continue our record-breaking revenue growth,” said Randy Pekowski, vice president and chief operating officer, The Expo Group.
Payne worked the past 11 years at GES and was previously a consultant for Bain and Company, where he provided expertise in cost reduction, customer profitability, merger and acquisition, and work stream analysis for a major exhibit house.
“The pace of face-to-face marketing demands proactive responsiveness as our clients rethink their events and exhibits,” Payne said. “The Expo Group is ideally suited to consistent and reliable service delivery while honoring the commitment to customization. It is that personal touch, after all, that has fueled the success of this company and our clientele.”
He possesses two degrees in Business Administration and MIS from The University of Texas at Austin.
