FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
INDUSTRY INNOVATOR, SHARON ENRIGHT JOINS NXT EVENTS MEDIA GROUP AS PRESIDENT & COO
Norwalk, CT (Monday, May 22, 2017) Sharon Enright, a mastermind in building the Business Journals Fashion Group portfolio from three to 27 events per year, has joined NXT Events Media Group as President and COO.
After serving in top operations management positions at Conference Management Corporation and Reed Exhibitions, Sharon moved to Business Journals Inc., (BJI) in 1997 as Director of Operations and rose to the rank of EVP of the company’s Trade Show Division. She was only the second person in BJI’s 90-year history to earn the title of EVP.
As EVP of the BJI Fashion Group she managed virtually all facets of the company’s 27-event portfolio. Her specific areas of expertise included operations, marketing and audience development.
“I am thrilled to be reunited with Sharon Enright. She has a truly special blend of talents as she is just as facile with detailed budgets and finance as she is with design and creative concepts,” stated Britton Jones, Chairman & CEO of NXT Events Media Group.
“Sharon works tirelessly to improve customer experiences. For example, she pioneered and was the brainchild of many of the enhanced packages and services that kept the BJI shows on the leading edge of the trade show industry. I cannot think of a better or more qualified person to lead an organization that is dedicated to producing experiences beyond expectations,” Britton continued.
The enthusiasm for building out the NXT Events Media Group is evident as Sharon Enright comments on her appointment.
“I am very excited to join NXT Events Media Group, and be appointed its President and COO. Britton’s status as an industry icon is well deserved and he continues to be an amazing mentor to me, as well as many others in the industry. This is a wonderful opportunity and an honor.
Developing the BJI portfolio over 18 years was a tremendous accomplishment. The philosophy was concise and clear; strive for excellence in customer service and create marketplaces that help customers achieve their goals. This is the same culture that will be at the core of NXT Events Media Group and the journey will be just as rewarding. Either through acquisition, partnership or launches, NXT Events Media Group is in a unique position to scout the industry for events in market segments where we can make a difference.
As the tradeshow industry continues to transform, at NXT Events Media Group we look to embrace and utilize the evolution of this dynamic industry. With the strong leadership of Britton Jones, our continued belief in the customer-first approach, and a culture that welcomes creativity and rapid change, I look forward to building out the NXT Events Media Group portfolio.” Sharon concludes.
