As a key member of the Media Management and Convention & Events Planning team, Laura Peacock lends a keen sense of order and world-class customer service as the edgefactory Logistics Coordinator for Thermo Fisher Scientific. Laura coordinates projects for multiple Thermo Fisher Scientific divisions, so they can bring their brands to life through technological innovations in marketing.
Working from the edgefactory satellite office in Oklahoma, Laura’s contributions to numerous trade shows and conferences across the northern continent and beyond have made her an integral part of the organization with her expertise in planning and logistics. When Laura saw that her Trade Show management team was struggling with maintaining timelines with attendees registration in a timely fashion, Laura led an initiative to institute an innovative online tool which eased the process of trade show / event registration for hundreds of users. Through this comprehensive online portal, the registration process was simplified, as well as saved time and money.
