RES Exhibit Services Hires Chris Kappes to Lead Sales and Marketing
2/13/2014
RES Exhibit Services President & CEO, James V. Leonardo, formally announced the appointment of Christopher (Chris) Kappes as its Vice President, Sales & Marketing effective immediately.

“Chris is well known in the industry and we hired him initially as a consultant,” explains Leonardo. “After a few weeks of working together we both came to the realization that a more formal relationship made sense as we transform RES into a “strategic outcome” company. Given Chris’s background and industry leadership, we’re excited to apply his knowledge and skill-set to our business and clients.”

Headquartered in Rochester, NY, and with offices in Las Vegas and Chicago, RES has steadily grown from its earliest origins as an in-house pharmaceutical trade show department to become a boutique-style exhibit agency that partners with clients to create trade show programs that build brand awareness and facilitate buyer: seller engagements. “RES is a best kept industry secret,” explains Kappes regarding RES and his appointment. “Frankly, I was blown away with RES’ in-house capabilities (marketing services, digital media, tension fabric manufacturing, full-blown graphic shop, private fleet of trucks) and Rochester is a hot-bed of industry talent given the corporate and university populations. Finally, Rochester is a “low cost” base of operation and therefore we have the opportunity to drive greater value for our clients and prospects. We have a lot to market/sell at RES and I’m excited to lead the sales/marketing organization.”
