San Diego Welcome’s Arizona Team!

Rise Executives would like to give a warm welcome to the crew from Scottsdale, Arizona. With eleven account managers in tow the office’s mentality and ambition was at an ultimate high. 

Business trips are highly successful operations that teach our partners how to be successful inside and outside of the office.  The trainers were able to help out with newer members of our team. It was a week filled with high intensity, a lot of energy, various learning stations, daily challenges and team building outside the office.  

Business trips are a great way for individuals to really break out of their shell in a different environment setting. Participating in business trips is beneficial to all that travel to new markets and territories.  ”My favorite part of the business IS the business trips because at that point you are in charge of your own mini-office,” said President Shawn Windey.   

We look forward to more opportunity to work with these elite team member’s in the future.
