Selkirk Headed to International Sign Expo
Sean Hart named to Sign, Graphics and Visual Communications Industry Program for Emerging Leaders
ISA Elite program to recognize young talent
ALEXANDRIA, VA – March 15, 2017 SEAN HART, PROJECT MANAGER AT SELKIRK SIGNS, has been named to the ISA Elite program, recognizing the next generation of sign, graphics and visual communications industry leaders. Sean was among 34 young professionals chosen for the program, which sponsors the winners to attend ISA International Sign Expo in Las Vegas including special networking events, education and, of course, its sold-out trade show.
The event is sponsored by the International Sign Association, the industry’s leading trade and advocacy association.
Sean has worked in the sign industry for 6 years, all of which have been spent at Selkirk Signs, here in Cranbrook BC.
Asking Sean what he enjoys most about the sign industry, he had the following to say:
I love the fact we help our clients succeed in the marketplace. Visual communications and branding is our clients first opportunity to put their best foot forward. I also value the personal side of the industry. The relationships built with clients, co-workers and partners.
Sean balances his driven work ethic with a cozy Kootenay life. He loves to spend time with his family, the guys on the golf course, and hunting for deep snow in our endless mountain-scape.
“Our industry is dynamic in both the products that we create and the people who choose to make it a profession,” said Lori Anderson, ISA president and CEO. “The next generation of leaders, like Sean, have proven that they bring much-needed skills to help our industry build stronger businesses and communities through our products.”
The ISA Elite program, now in its third year, includes three nights’ hotel accommodation and free entry to all education sessions at ISA International Sign Expo 2017, the sign, graphics and visual communications industry’s leading event. It also includes unique networking opportunities with fellow professionals and industry leaders. A two-day follow-up leadership retreat will be held in the fall.
ISA International Sign Expo takes place April 19-22 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The International Sign Association (ISA) represents manufacturers, suppliers, and users of on-premise signs and sign products from the United States and 60 countries around the world. ISA and its Affiliated Associations work to support, promote, and improve the worldwide sign and visual communications industry, which employs more than 200,000 American workers and has an economic impact of $37.5 billion.
