International Market Centers Announces New Leadership Team
High Point, NC, November 7, 2018-Following its recently concluded merger with AmericasMart, International Market Centers has announced a new executive leadership team with over 150 years of collective experience in the gift, home furnishings, and apparel industries: Greg Avitabile, EVP, operations; Dorothy Belshaw, EVP, chief marketing and digital officer; Scott Eckman, EVP, president of furniture and home décor leasing; Bill Lacey, EVP and chief financial officer; JoAnn Miller Marshall, EVP, president of tradeshow leasing; Carrie Messina, SVP, human resources; and Dave Savula, EVP, president of gift and apparel leasing.
Tradeshow leasing will apply expertise and expanded resources to grow existing temporary presentations in Atlanta, High Point and Las Vegas. IMC’s temporary exhibit sales teams will be campus-specific, better enabling existing staff to maintain the unique personality and differentiating features of each Market. Tradeshow leasing will also identify opportunities to maximize occupancy at the new expo at World Market Center Las Vegas, which will break ground in January and is scheduled to open in July 2020. The new state-of-the-art facility will be purpose built for optimal tradeshow presentation and will be contiguous to Las Vegas Market’s buildings. Totaling more than 300,000 gross square feet, the new venue will accommodate more than 1,000 temporary exhibitors during major gift and home markets.
