The International Association of Venue Managers has named Devon Carter as its new Membership Sales Specialist. Devon joined the Membership team in April, and is already making an impact on membership retention and acquisition. Prior to joining IAVM, he was with the Frisco RoughRiders, a Minor League Baseball team and Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, where he coordinated partnerships between the Frisco RoughRider’s Foundation and local charitable organizations, as well as organized community events.
“I am definitely a people person,” stated Devon, when asked why he chose to join IAVM. “I love working directly with people. When I saw who comprised the membership and researched what IAVM stands for, what this association does for its members, I was very intrigued. I saw a lot of myself in the IAVM mission.”
Devon’s primary focus will be to generate new business and new members across all sectors, as well as help drive revenue growth.
“We are thrilled that Devon has joined IAVM,” said Gina Brydson, IAVM’s Director of Membership. “His sales background, great personality and charm, and initiative will help us achieve our goal of making IAVM even stronger in the years to come. He is already bringing in new members! We can’t wait for you to meet him. Please welcome him to the IAVM family if you haven’t done so already.”
“A lot of my prior professional accomplishments have revolved around getting communities involved and building relationships,” noted Devon. “My dream is to just be able to connect people in ways that they can grow professionally and personally, and to be someone who gives them the means to do so.”
