Cantaloupe COO To Speak At NAMA Woman’s Event April 25

Sarah Rankin, president and chief operating officer of Cantaloupe Systems and NAMA board member, will headline the Women of the Industry (WIN) education and networking event at the OneShow. Held April 25 at 4:30 p.m. at the Venetian Room 605, the complimentary event will kick off with a discussion led by Rankin followed by networking and refreshments.

“With the industry’s growth trajectory, the event is an excellent opportunity for women at all stages of their careers to exchange ideas and network,” said Sue Ralston, administrator of WIN and NAMA’s director of meetings and events, in a prepared statement. “This is only year two for us and we are thrilled with the response we’ve had from the industry overall – including our sponsors -- and are looking forward to broad participation and a dynamic discussion.”

The event will feature a presentation – combining humor and inspiration with business counsel – led by Rankin for the first half hour, immediately followed by a reception in the same location. Sponsors for the event include Holiday House Distributing, MEI and U-Select-It.

The WIN Advisory Council, chaired by Carla Variglotti, The Cuyahoga Group, includes: Janette Carter, Focus 365; Heidi Chico, U-Select-It; Shivani Gupta, Canteen Vending; Angela Olson, Seaga; Jenny Pemberton, The Pepi Companies and Barbara Russell, Holiday House Distributing.
