Impact Media Summit organizing company CrankTank – founded by Scott Montgomery – has announced the addition of Chad Battistone to the event’s sales team. Battistone will take on sponsorship sales manager duties for the event and report to CrankTank VP Adrian Montgomery.
“When Scott and Adrian approached me to work on the Impact event in Sun Valley, it didn’t take much thought to say let’s do this,” said Battistone.
“I’m stoked to be part of the crew building a new media event for the bicycle industry. Events are in my blood and the bike biz is my family, so this is more like going home than starting a new journey.”
Impact Sun Valley is CrankTank’s inaugural event offering, but its core business revolves around digital marketing, e-commerce and CEO consulting.
Recruiting Battistone will bolster the Impact team, allowing the agency to properly service existing business, said a company statement.
“As CrankTank grows, it’s important for us to continue giving our existing clients the high-level service they’ve become accustomed to,” said Adrian Montgomery.
“Chad’s many years of event sales experience bumps up our bandwidth on Impact. He’ll help us shore up the few remaining event sponsorship positions, so we can also maintain focus on our other core objectives.”
CrankTank’s Lars-Erik Johnson will continue his duties managing event planning, operations and media communication.
Impact Sun Valley will be staged 26–28th June.
