“With her experience and knowledge of our industry Stephanie will be able to hit the ground running with ECIA, and we are very pleased to have her join our team,” noted Victor Meijers, ECIA Senior Vice President. “Stephanie not only has a good marketing background, but she also brings a passion for member engagement that will serve us well, especially during these times when many of our members might feel less connected with the industry at large. We are fortunate to have the luxury of Stephanie working alongside and learning from Debbie Conyers our Vice President of Member Engagement as she looks forward to retiring at the end of the year.”
