PLEASANTON, CA June 9, 2017 – 6Connex, Inc., the leader in virtual events and environments, today announced the appointment of Robin Klombers as Vice President of Sales, North America.
Klombers, who brings more than 15 years’ industry experience to the role, will drive new business development and channel relationships in the region. Her primary focus is to add to an impressive roster of customers that spans enterprise, government, biotech, media, associations and other segments.
“Our North America business is already thriving; with Robin leading the charge, we’re looking for explosive growth into 2018 and beyond,” said 6Connex CEO Michael Nelson. “We’re lucky to have such a passionate, experienced virtual events pro joining the team.”
Klombers virtual event experience includes Vice President of Sales and Business Development for INXPO, where she directed all enterprise, government, non-profit, media, and education focused programs, in addition to her time leading the NY office for virtual expo provider Unisfair (now West/Intercall). Klombers was also an early customer of the technology while in the media/publishing industry, where she focused on monetized events.
Her first-hand experience from both sides of execution will allow Klombers to bring a unique, strategic perspective to each discussion, fostering trust while sharing real-world best practices for developing rich content, increasing attendee engagement, improving the sponsor experience, mitigating risk with hybrid events and creating virtual event success.
“One of the things I value most about Robin’s experience is her ability to view programs from each customer’s point of view,” said Lisa Farrell, 6Connex CRO. “Her commitment to customer success is a perfect fit with the 6Connex mission.”
“I couldn’t be more excited to join the 6Connex team,” said Klombers, “especially knowing the competition so well. I look forward to bringing the industry’s most innovative, flexible and accessible platform to more customers.”
