Refining GES’ Organization to Better Serve Our Clients

2019 Company Restructure

We recently announced a strategic company-wide realignment designed to enhance execution, performance, and position our talented GES team to best serve our regional and national client base. The realignment facilitates access to operational and technical resources, increases efficiencies across GES, and brings new technologies and services to the forefront.

Effective November 1, 2019, five GES regions were consolidated into four regions as presented on this map.
