WE STARTED WITH THE BEST
Once R&D Events started to grow, we knew we needed to add someone in a sales capacity. Our list of desired candidates was short. In fact, it only had one name on it; Cari Compton. We had all worked together years earlier at The Ritz-Carlton and we knew she would be the perfect fit. The problem was, she had just started a new job for a high-end hotel in Portland, OR. So we waited...patiently...for 6 months. After endless calls and messages, we finally convinced her to join us. How? We have no idea, seeing as how our first office was in 18 sq ft closet and our client list fit on a post-it note. But with Cari, we quickly became an unstoppable force and by the end of her first year she had helped double our revenues and set us on the path to tremendous growth. Today, she head's-up our national sales team and is on the fast track to opening her own office. Her vision; R&D San Diego or perhaps R&D Maui...either way, we will be visiting often!
