Fossil Exhibits International Announces New Personnel

Roland Benavides and Martin Martinez Strengthen the Fossil Team.

Houston, TX, July 17, 2012 --( Fossil Exhibits International, a full-service trade show and event marketing firm, announced that Roland Benavides and Martin Martinez have joined the organization.

Benavides joins Fossil in the position of Lead Creative Manager, and will use his vast experience to direct all aspects of Fossil Exhibits’ creative design in unique trade show exhibits, environments and permanent installations. Benavides brings over twenty three years of proven design and management experience, having worked for such respected firms as OmniGroup, Inc. and Freeman Decorating Company. A 1989 graduate of the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and a concentration in Architecture, Benavides is a recipient of numerous industry design awards and has been written up in trade publications such as Exhibitor Magazine.

"The reason that I decided to continue my career by transitioning to Fossil is that this opportunity will allow me to expand my creative capabilities while working alongside a well-seasoned Team of event professionals,” Benavides explained. “The Team that has been brought together at Fossil has truly defined the meaning of customer service.”

Martinez joined Fossil as Project Manager in February of 2012, bringing over thirty years of trade show experience and an extensive background in construction and project management. Martinez worked in shop construction and project management most recently at Freeman, in which he provided support for significant clients such as Qualcomm, Halliburton and Kyocera. This wealth of real world experience is crucial in maintaining the highest level of professionalism in customer service for Fossil’s growing clientele.

“I left the exhibit industry for two years and only decided to come back because of the Team Fossil has put together,” Martinez commented. “I am eager to once again work with a dedicated group of exhibit professionals and provide my knowledge, support and love of trouble shooting in monitoring projects.”

Madolyn Murdock, Executive Vice President of Fossil Exhibits International commented, “We are very excited to have both of these professionals join our Team. The addition of Roland and Martin further solidifies the strength of our company and the future that it holds.
