WESCCON 2016 Breakdown
WESCCON 2016 is only a few weeks away, and your Roanoke Trade team is gearing up for another successful conference! This year we will be manning booths 28-29, and can’t wait to connect with you!
Many changes have been happening at Roanoke in the past year – including the transition of Glenn Patton to our corporate office in Chicago and the return of Dave Jordan as our new Los Angeles Regional Vice President! While Glenn’s presence in California will be greatly missed, we’re excited to announce his promotion to Vice President, National Sales Management. In this role, Glenn is tasked with developing and growing sales across all product lines. Mr. Patton’s primary goal is to partner with our customers and sales team to ensure their risk management strategy is in line with their business model. Dave Jordan, who is now permanently based out of our Los Angeles office, oversees the sales and operations in our San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle offices.
Many of your other Roanoke favorites will be attending this year’s conference as well, including Bill Sterrett, Karen Groff, Sean Walsh, Amanda Barlow, Patrice Lafayette, Jason VanderYacht, Terry Cummings and Ron Gee. They’re all ready for WESCCON fun and festivities – make sure to stop by our booths and say hi!
