Meet Kris!

Please welcome Kris W. to our Chicago team!

You may have seen Kris's face around and on our social media already: he's been working part-time for Percipia this summer, but now he's sticking around, so we thought it'd be fun to ask him some questions to get to know him a little better!

Q: What is your official work title?
A: Inside Sales Representative

Q: Can you tell us more about your professional experience/ history?
A: I was accepted into a top 10 U.S. internship program for Northwestern Mutual as a life and disability insurance agent after my first year of college. From there, I left to pursue my dream of playing on the PGA Tour and competed professionally in golf tournaments up and down the East Coast of the U.S.

Q: What do you like to do outside of work?
A: I love to be outdoors. You can always find me playing golf, working out, running, at a concert or just out trying new restaurants!

Q: What are your greatest travel experience?
A: I’ve been to at least 5 islands in the Caribbean and I would have to say my favorite place I’ve been is Jamaica. Never been to Europe or Asia, but I will definitely try to get there ASAP.

Q: Favorite movie?
A: Can’t pick one…Wedding Crashers, The Big Lebowski, Forrest Gump

Q: Guilty pleasure music artist?
A: John

Q: What is something that inspires you?
A: My fear of mediocrity, I’ve always been someone who wants more and will stop at nothing to achieve that.

Q: What would you say your professional goal would be now that you are employed at Percipia?
A: To corner the Chicago hotel and hotel development market. I want Percipia’s name in every hotel.

Welcome to the team, Kris! We're excited to have you!

Surjit Goes to Chicago!

Our Chicago office has had a very special guest visiting last week. Our Regional Sales Manager Surjit visited all the way from Dubai!

Surjit took part in a week long sales training session here at our office, along with our other sales team members.

Of course, we also made sure he got to experience life in Chicago too!
We took him sightseeing across town and introduced him to some quality Chicago pizza!
