Las Vegas, NV – Chuck Grouzard has been promoted to executive vice president of U.S. sales for Global Experience Specialists (GES) as part of a restructuring of the exhibition sales department. Grouzard will oversee current accounts, develop new business, and manage sales training and industry participation.
“Chuck is a proven leader who has earned the respect of our clients, our team and our industry colleagues,” said GES Chief Sales Officer, Jeff Quade. “I’m confident that under his leadership, our U.S. exhibitions sales team will enhance show organizers’ experience and deliver outstanding results.”
Grouzard has moved steadily up the ranks at GES since joining the company in 1987. His most recent title was senior vice president – national sales. He is also a past president of the Exhibition Services & Contractors Association (ESCA) and received ESCA’s President’s Award last year for his contributions to the industry.
“It is an exciting time at GES, as we continue to evolve into a global resource for our clients and prospects,” said Grouzard. “I’m humbled to lead this talented and experienced team.”
Grouzard will have three newly minted vice presidents on his leadership team. GES moved Bob Ryle, John Loveless and Scott Crawford up to the rank of vice president of national sales. Ryle and Loveless both have more than 25 years with GES, and Crawford has been with the company for 17 years.
Pamela Mather joined GES as national sales manager. She will be based in Denver where she was most recently general manager for Brede Exposition Services.
