Meet Kevin - One of Perenso's account managers who has a taste for adventure and live music.
Hometown: Yardley, PA
Your role & what it entails: As an Account Manager, I work with my clients through every step of running a successful trade show, from data and logistic planning before the show to support and implementation during the show to recapping and planning for the next event after the show. I am also a Show Lead who attends and leads our team at physical trade shows. I work with the venues and our clients to set up networking and all of our hardware and software for the events.
How long have you been at Perenso: Since January 2020.
How did you end up at Perenso: After working in sales, I decided that the next step in my career would be an account management/customer success role. While I was searching for openings, Perenso really stood out from the others. Not only would this role be the account management experience I was looking for, but I would also be able to travel all over the country and explore cities I’ve never been to.
