Mount Laurel, NJ – On Location, a nationwide provider of labor and management services for exhibits, events and environments, has hired John Zipay as Senior Account Executive. An industry veteran with more than 20 years of varied experience, Zipay will develop and manage client relationships with a primary focus on fostering strong relations with exhibit houses across the country.
Over the past 20 years, Zipay has held various operations, sales and marketing roles within the tradeshow industry. His background has provided him with extensive experience in strategic planning, union labor coordination, sales and marketing development and financial management. Having worked in various aspects of the industry and capitalizing on his well-established relationships, he will be a tremendous asset to On Location clients.
Prior to joining On Location, John Zipay was the Vice President of Services with Holt Environments, a premier event marketing agency in North Carolina, and before that he spent time on the west coast as General Manager at Exhibits Northwest, Inc. Most of his career was spent in Orlando where he worked his way up from the show floor to Vice President/General Manager for Trade Show Supply. While his responsibilities varied every step of the way, the long-standing member of the Exhibit Design Producers Association (EDPA) held key roles that required meeting the needs of clients and acting as the point of contact between the company and customers.
On Location President, Michael Mulry said, “I’ve known John for years and cannot say enough about the way he approaches his work. His breadth of experience is matched with high energy – both of which will further enhance our customers’ Return On Experience (ROE).” After more than a year of managing through unprecedented times, Mulry added, “We are excited to have someone with John’s vast knowledge on our team. He is smart, skilled and high energy, which will be a great fit for our organization.”
“One of my favorite sayings is ‘working hard and working smart’ – On Location not only does both but does both well,” said Zipay, who is well known for his own work ethic. “The company has built a reputation for excellence in meeting – and exceeding – clients’ expectations. I look forward to drawing on my experience and being part of the well-respected On Location team. Together, we can continue to create the best possible client experience.”
Zipay will be joining On Location at EXHIBITORLIVE – Booth #426, where he will dive in with company’s theme of “Don’t be a small fish in a big pond.” Mulry adds, “We look forward to introducing John and having our team share with clients how our personalized expertise works to their advantage.”
