Lisa Montanaro

Lisa Montanaro
My name is Lisa Montanaro and I have been a part of BEA for the past 9 years. During that time I have had the had the honor of working with large publishers, authors, distributors, printers, and others to help develop and refine marketing strategies related to BEA. I do not believe in the "cookie cutter" approach to your business and my exhibitors know they can expect personalized service regardless of whether you have 1 title or 100. During my tenure at BEA, I have witnessed how technology has changed the way the publishing world conducts business. While technology has given us many tools, it cannot replace the magic that I have witnessed repeatedly with each and every BEA that I have had the pleasure to attend.

Prior to joining BEA I worked as a Recruiter for a large placement firm in Southern CT for 10 years and in Education Sales for a Software distributor. When I am not busily working at BEA, you will find me spending time with my husband and two teenaged daughters. I am an avid reader and knitter.

Please call me if you would like to explore the ways which your business can connect to the BEA community and become a part of this great event.
