VP of Sales & Business Development
As a Veteran starting his 25th year at Omni, you need no introduction. Let’s go ahead and give everyone a chance to learn a little more about you!
What’s the best part of your day?
Besides the people I work with It has to be my clients and the incredible projects that come across my desk every day. Every project is unique, and we have some very creative and high-profile clients.
How does your day at OMNI typically unfold?
I like to start my day working thru our digital marketing and CRM, assigning new leads to the sales team, taking care of my client’s needs and doing my best to move Omni forward one day at a time.
What experience did you have before taking on your current position?
While I was in college at the University of Hawaii, Manoa, I worked as an intern and assistant to the GM for the Hawaii Winter Baseball League. I did a little bit of everything for the League and the Honolulu Sharks but my focus during the off season was sales.
What do you enjoy most about our customers? After 24 Years I have some great relationships with my clients. The thing that impresses me the most is how they are constantly reinventing experiential events and allowing us to help to execute their vision.
Do you have a favorite project of all time?
That’s a tough one but I would have to say that working with Lisa Bennett and Tracey Cornish (Now with Entertainment 3Sixty) on the George Strait Country Music Festival back in 1998. It was my first big project and seeing the end result in person, an 18 Stadium Date tour with a lineup of talent that what would now be considered Country Music Royalty (George Strait, Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, The Dixie Chicks and the list goes on) was really exciting and laid the ground work for many of the relationships that keeps Omni in the forefront of the industry to this day.
