Vortex Companies Promotes Connor Collier to Sr. Business Development Manager in Northeast
(Houston, TX — April 20, 2018)
As the Vortex Companies continue to gain traction in the Northeast, Connor Collier has been promoted to Sr. Business Development Manager to help manage the growth, according to Andrew Gonnella, EVP Sales & Marketing. “Connor has played an integral role in our success in the northeast and is certainly deserving of his promotion,” added Gonnella.
Collier joined the company in its early days and has helped Vortex become one of the fastest growing trenchless civil infrastructure solutions providers in the nation. “It’s been an exciting ride,” said Collier. “Growing up in the region has certainly helped me understand the dynamics of this unique market and I am excited to help move the trenchless industry forward in my backyard,” he added.
In his new role, Collier will manage the regional sales team, which now consists of two new members. Kelly Bailey assumes the role as Business Development Manager, and Matthew Richards steps in as a Business Development Associate. “Although geographically small, the northeastern part of the US is extremely concentrated and filled with untapped opportunities. More boots on the ground will allow us to increase market share in the water and wastewater markets and allow Connor to deploy new strategies targeting growth markets,” said Gonnella. “Connor, with his added support, will help us exceed our 2018 goals.”
