Online PR News – 06-September-2012 – ST. PAUL – Skyline Exhibits, a leading designer and producer of exhibits and graphics for trade shows and marketing events, is pleased to announce the hiring of Jon M. Althoff as Director of Marketing.

Attracted to a Major Player In a Unique Industry
Althoff has been involved in exhibiting across multiple industries for over 20 years. He became aware of Skyline trade show exhibits early on.

"Both facts I experienced first-hand."

And a cutting-edge company like Skyline has the ability to produce whatever design is conceived. I look forward to learning the industry in depth."
