Earlier this month, we welcomed four new members to our team. We spent the week of June 10th onboarding our new members and strategizing our sales and marketing initiatives for 2019. The hiring process isn’t always glamorous, but with a team like ours getting to know each other is a lot of fun.
Our new vice president of sales is Joyce Conner-Boyd. Her professional experience is extensive, including leadership roles in Sales, Operations, Mergers & Acquisitions and Strategy for multiple Fortune 500 companies. She is also a current doctoral candidate at Walden University focusing on the role of strategic leadership in healthcare profitability.
Our new regional sales directors are Austin Beverage, who will be in our Atlanta office, and David Luna, who will be supporting our efforts in the midwest region.
Austin Beverage has experience working as a Sales Manager for multiple companies in the technology industry, such as SoftServe Development and Gartner.
David Luna is a seasoned veteran in sales as well as for the U.S. military. Having held multiple positions focusing on sales in the midwest region, his experience will be incredibly beneficial for our company. Even more notably, David has used his expertise in sales and marketing to help his fellow veterans. He and his co-founder created a company whose web application allows veterans to easily browse companies in their area that support them, in real time.
In addition to our sales team, we welcomed our marketing intern for the summer. Madelyn Herbik is a rising senior at the University of Georgia pursuing a degree in public relations with a minor in communication studies and a certificate in legal studies.
We are very excited to see how our newly developed team will succeed in growing Azul Arc!
