Shepard Exposition Services Expands Staff in Recently Acquired Arizona Operations
5/1/2014
Shepard Exposition Services is moving fast to grow its recently acquired operations in the Phoenix and Tucson markets by adding two new National Sales Managers in Phoenix - Ryan Taffe and Georgina Zizzo.

Ryan Taffe's 12 years of sales experience is complemented by his rich event management experience, having produced events like the Waste Management Phoenix Open, The Barrett Jackson Auto Auction and the NASCAR Subway Fresh Fit 500 in Phoenix. Ryan comes to Shepard after 6 six years with Coca-Cola Refreshments where he served as Market Development Manager. Ryan has resided in Phoenix for the past 18 years and received his MBA from the University of Phoenix.

Georgina Zizzo brings 18 years of experience from the hospitality industry working to develop long-term relationships and create innovative solutions which helped her clients set themselves apart from their competition. Her most recent position was with the Venetian/Palazzo in Las Vegas as National Sales Manager where she specialized in the Insurance/Financial and IT vertical markets.

“Ryan’s event management experience, marketing acumen and keen focus on developing successful business solutions will be a tremendous asset to both our company and customers," says Richard Maples, Shepard's EVP of Sales. Maurya Palmer, Shepard’s Vice President and General Manager of Shepard's Arizona operations adds, “Gina’s knowledge of the Southwest market and her dedication to superior customer service and creativity will help provide our growing client base with the unparalleled levels of service we deliver each and every day around the country.”
