The Network of Executive Women has hired three new employees to better serve the community’s growing membership.

Virginia Simon has joined the Network in the new role of supervisor, registration and services. Simon will oversee the registration and services team, which supports all national and regional event registration, advises regional logistics and event management, and provides customer service. Simon comes to NEW with more than 13 years of related experience, including roles at associations and eShow, an event management company where she oversaw registration for events with as many as 20,000 attendees.

Rita Donnelly will serve in the new role of customer service specialist, overseeing all customer service inquiries. She comes to NEW with an extensive background in customer and member service, event and show support, and communications.

"The services that our expanded team now offers will assist our 20 regions and 9,000 members as they take full advantage of our ever-growing menu of programs and online services," said NEW Vice President Member & Regional Services Stephanie McFee. "We are excited about the experience that Virginia and Rita bring as we support registration and logistics for more than 120 regional events each year."

Juliet Pate, formerly of Yield Technologies, will support the operations and finance team as accounts receivable assistant. She reports to Vice President of Finance and Operations Carol Jones.
