GES, a global full-service provider for live events, is delighted to announce that Executive Vice President of Industry Development Jack Patronski is a 2016 inductee into the Convention Industry Council’s (CIC) esteemed Hall of Leaders. This exclusive membership is a symbol of industry excellence, representing leadership, innovation, and influence.

In addition to his full time job at GES, Patronski actively volunteers to ensure the continued success of the industry. He has worked toward the improvement of labor and exhibitor rights in Chicago, Philadelphia and Las Vegas, collaborating with industry clients, labor and facilities to help enact friendly work rule reforms that lower exhibitors’ costs and increase business. He also served as chairman of the board of Choose Chicago and serves on the board of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce.

“Jack’s unwavering dedication to the continued success of our industry includes literally hundreds of volunteer hours,” said GES Chief Sales Officer Jeff Quade.

Patronski was nominated by the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA), where he has served on the board of PCMA and was chair of its Foundation. In its nomination of Patronski, PCMA commented that, “Jack is an incredible leader and actively keeps all groups he leads on task and with a clear focus. He is passionate about the industry and everything he does is for the greater good.” PCMA went on to say, “Jack’s most important contribution to our industry is his ability to make us ‘care and contribute’ beyond our narrow spheres. He has led GES in funding multiple causes, rallied organizations around these causes and enabled our industry to demonstrate to the communities in which we meet, the impact we can and do make.”

“I’m honored just to be nominated, and to be nominated by PCMA makes it all the more special,” Patronski said. “I’m very proud of our industry, its significant impact on the success of businesses large and small, and honored to have the opportunity to contribute at GES. I’m very grateful to be inducted into the CIC Hall of Leaders.”
