According to Kevin Carty, VP at Classic Exhibits, “I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Michael for more than ten years. To say that we are excited to have him as a part of the Exhibits Northwest and the Classic Family is an understatement. His creativity, professionalism and detailed oriented approach to all aspects of business are a gift. I am looking forward to working together with Michael ON and IN the business that we have all grown to love over the years.”

Michael was kind enough to share his background below.

Michael McCord

Michael_2I am originally from Michigan, but most recently moved from the Chicago area. My wife is a ER Nurse and musician. I have two boys: Jaxton is 9 years old and loves to read, play drums, piano, and of course video games. Elijah is 5 years old and he enjoys Legos, Legos, and Legos …Did I say Legos?

After high school, I studied architectural design and attended film school. I then spent a few years writing and performing music around the country. I enjoy the challenge of creating and innovating on a daily basis, and I believe that is why the trade show industry is so exciting to me.

My trade show experience started as a detailer / designer in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After a year, I was offered the chance to help lead the design and manufacturing of eco-friendly exhibits with Eco-Systems Sustainable Exhibits. In the five years I was with Eco-Systems Displays I progressed from a designer to the VP of Design and Manufacturing. My family and I then accepted an opportunity in the suburbs of Chicago that allowed me to help lead the operations as the General Manager and then President of Evo Exhibits for the last six years.

I am very excited be a part of the Exhibit Northwest team and help them grow into their full potential by serving each client through quality service and innovation.
