Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) May 15, 2017
Wyn Experiences, a Jacksonville-based events management firm whose clients include a host of Fortune 1000 companies, recently announced the addition of Lisa Griffith to its leadership team as VP of National Accounts. A seasoned business development professional, Griffith brings 10+ years of experience to her new role of identifying and cultivating new business opportunities. A longtime Portland resident, Griffith will be based in Oregon.
As an emerging force within the events management arena, Wyn Experiences provides corporate clients and groups with unparalleled access to the most sought-after sporting and lifestyle events. Its 2017-2018 events calendar includes the US Open, the Masters, the Kentucky Derby, and Wimbledon, along with many other highly coveted events. The organization also creates and manages highly customized events designed to meet the specific needs of its group and corporate clients.
Griffith’s recruitment is the latest in a string of executive level appointments and is in direct response to the organization’s significant growth, which includes a 40% increase in events and customized outings on a year-over-year basis. The increased business has been attributed to the organization’s client retention statistics as well as its expansion into new event genres including luxury golf outings in the UK, photographic safaris and tours, and high-end trophy fishing expeditions.
Griffith’s professional background includes roles at Thanx, where she led business development efforts and Talent Transformation Team (T3), where she assisted major retailers in recruiting and retaining key talent. Griffith also worked for the Mainz Brady Group, a full-service staffing company, where she developed and managed client relationships with Logitech, Kaiser Permanente, Razorfish, Adobe, Gap and Walmart, among others. Griffith is also the founder of Polar Therapeutics and FAST Basketball Academy. A former college athlete, Griffith enjoyed a successful basketball career at the University of Arizona and holds multiple school and Pac-10 records.
“We truly value Lisa’s professional experience and are confident she will prove to be an asset to the Wyn Experience team. Her fearless drive to win and prevail in virtually any environment will serve our team well as we scale and build our brand,” said Brandon Woods, Chief Experiences Officer.
