Expo Experts

about us: staff bios

Susan Turner, President

(877) 842-3976 ext.11

My entire professional career has been in the job fair industry, with my experience dating back to the mid 80's. I have always believed that a sincere interest in customer satisfaction is the key to success. So I brought this philosophy to Expo Experts.

Expo Experts was formed in 1999 and we built this company with the customer in mind. To host the Nation's best advertised events, we formed exclusive partnerships with newspapers. This was smart, because Newspapers are the key to the success of our job fairs. By giving ownership of our events to the newspapers in the markets we serve, we guarantee more advertising in Classifieds and ROP, than any other job fair event. This is the winning combination that is raising the standard of job fairs. I am proud of the service we offer and I hope to see you at a event soon!

Carrie Dunham, Vice President

(888) 811-9385 ext.12

By 1999, having eight years as a highly effective account executive with the largest job fair company in the world taught me that far too much money was going into the job fair companies' pockets and not enough was going towards the necessary advertising campaign.

In today's economy, it is harder to attract the level of candidate our clients want to see. The ad campaign needs to be superior to all other efforts.

Expo Experts offers me the opportunity to exercise my philosophy for providing the highest quality events, with the best advertising campaign and the most reasonable cost to our client customer!

I am excited about the program and look forward to working with you soon. Thank you for considering our service!

Tracy Dawson, Operations Manager

Mike Bruffey, Sales Representative
Healthcare Division

(877) 842-3976 ext. 14

First things first: 45 minutes after this photo was taken, the ladies of Expo Experts made me get a much-needed haircut. Now that we got that out of the way, a little bit about me: I graduated from law school, but had no desire to practice law. I started exploring other opportunities and this job fell in my lap. I was really impressed with the company and the business model, so I gave it a shot, and I love it. I work exclusively planning our healthcare events. I know how hard it is to recruit qualified healthcare professionals, which is what makes our fairs unique. I work with my clients to find the best fit and give them the best opportunity to find the healthcare professionals they so desperately need.

Delmar Gainey, Candidate Development Manager

As manager of candidate development, it is my responsibility to ensure that qualified candidates are aware of the challenging opportunities available in our Career Fairs throughout the country. With an extensive background in Executive Level Management ranging from Fortune 100 to emerging 8A companies, I am highly aware of the need to staff with capable individuals at the critical need times. My technical background as a CIO and as a Senior Technical Recruiter benefits me in developing the channels of communication to attract qualified candidates to match the needs of the outstanding companies that attend the Expo Expert Career Fairs.
