Konecki named CATA's new vice president

November 10, 2010

Chris Konecki, who since 2004 worked for the CATA as director of auto show operations, was promoted May 1 to executive vice president. The position was vacant since Jan. 1, when David Sloan ascended to CATA president.

Konecki, 44, joined the CATA after 16 years at McCormick Place, where he was event manager of the Chicago Auto Show account and other large shows there.

"Chris’s experience and know-how with everything auto show have proven invaluable to the association," Sloan said.  "As executive vice president, he will be able to spread his diligent effort and conscientious approach to all parts of our organization."
