We are seeking a Business Development Executive to join our new and growing Design & Production division.  Select's Design & Production division offers full-service event production services from unique event decor to custom builds to graphics from our in house production team.  This division focuses on the guest experience while bringing our client's vision to life.  In addition to the custom work we do, elements commonly sold from our existing inventory include specialty bars, tables, lounge furniture, floral elements, and draping solutions.  The executive will focus on targeted growth areas within the parameters of our existing divisional sales strategy, including but not limited to sports and corporate events, large social events, and industrial work.  The primary geographic focus of the executive will be Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.  However, as a company committed to continued growth, we will evaluate all opportunities with an open mind.
