Experient Grows Meeting Management Team

Experient has announced three new additions to its staff of meeting professionals. The Twinsburg, Ohio-based meeting management company has named Tammy Port account manager for Experient Express, Tim LaFleur meeting and event coordinator, and Brenda Houlihan senior meeting and event manager. All three are internal hires.

Port, who has spent more than a year in Experient's research department, has a background in customer service and event management, and has previously held positions with Kent State University, MBNA America and Aramark.

LaFleur, meanwhile, comes from Experient's online department, where he's worked for two years. A former special event planner with Six Flags, Ohio, he brings with him a background in Web design, event registration and housing management.

Experient's third addition, Houlihan, is a certified meeting planner (CFP) who is based in the company's Boston office, where she has worked for more than 10 years. Her 20-year career in meeting planning and operations includes positions at Interleaf Software and COMDEX, as well as active involvement in Meeting Professionals International (MPI), the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and the International Special Events Society (ISIS).
