Lisa Ann Evans Completes Certified Trade Show Marketer Program
Lisa Ann Evans has joined the ranks of the trade show industry's top talent by completing EXHIBITOR's Certified Trade Show Marketer (CTSM) accreditation program, the only university-affiliated certification program in the trade show and event marketing industry.
Lisa started the certification process in 2010 in order to improve her company's trade show marketing strategies. She has successfully accomplished all of the CTSM program requirements: a 28-course core curriculum, a comprehensive examination and acceptance of a Candidate Portfolio. Lisa will be recognized in March 2014 as one of the new CTSM graduates at the annual awards ceremony at EXHIBITOR2014.
In January 1996, Lisa was hired in the Logistics and Field Support departments by United Defense, LP. This mid-sized defense contractor was known for its combat-proven tracked and wheeled armored vehicles and naval gun systems. In 2003, she accepted a position in Business Development (BD) and made the decision to return to college to finish her Bachelor of Science in Management (with a focus in Marketing). She graduated in 2012 from Capella University Summa Cum Laude.
In 2007, she accepted a position in the Marketing Communications department designing and executing all levels of trade shows for the U.S. Army. Today her responsibilities include the design and execution of all domestic and international tradeshows; and the building and maintenance of a web-based interactive database:
Lisa has been married for 23 years and has two sons Nicholas and Thomas. When she is not working she enjoys time with her family which includes her dogs Sammy and Kasey and newly adopted cat Snookie.
"Obtaining my certification in exhibit management was extremely important to me as well as BAE Systems", said Lisa. College sets the standard for education, but CTSM is where the rubber meets the road. By BAE Systems allowing me to participate in the CTSM program showed their commitment to taking my personal development to the next level.
Created in 1992, the Certified Trade Show Marketer (CTSM) program, sponsored by EXHIBITOR, is affiliated with Northern Illinois University Outreach to assure academic standards are met. All CEUs earned in the program are awarded by NIU. EXHIBITOR's CTSM program has over 3,000 professionals enrolled. For more information, go to www.ctsm.com.
