2019 Class of ISA Elite Named




The 2019 ISA Elite class will benefit from an unparalleled network of young professionals in the sign, graphics and visual communications industry and receive ongoing opportunities for growth.

 The 2019 ISA Elite class, now in its fifth year, is the most diverse ever for this highly competitive, one-of-a-kind program. In all, 37 participants range from those who own their companies to those who work for the largest manufacturers. Some are in sign creation and installation, others are in sales, marketing and product development. Still others have roles in planning, recruiting and training. In addition, 27 represent companies that are new to the program.

 The first meeting of the 2019 ISA Elite will be held at ISA International Sign Expo 2019® in April and will meet again at ISA headquarters in the fall for the industry’s first-ever leadership training program where  young professionals learn valuable skills that will help propel their companies, their careers and the industry forward. 

 “Each year, the ISA Elite bring a level of excitement to the industry,” said Lori Anderson, president and CEO of the International Sign Association®. “This group, in particular, will benefit from the many diverse connections they will be able to make. As with previous groups, they will be able to take what they’ve learned back to their companies, where they can make a major impact.”

 One of the highlights of ISA International Sign Expo events is the gathering of ISA Elite participants from previous years. 

 “The ISA Elite program has proven invaluable in developing the next generation of sign, graphics and visual communications industry leaders,” said Iain Mackenzie, ISA’s vice president of meetings and events. “The networking provides connections that participants can take back into their businesses and help them solve problems or maximize opportunities. ”
