Meet Maxxwell Lebiecki!
Account Executive 
Association of Equipment Manufacturers

Like many, Maxx sort of found his way into the industry by chance and fell in love with it once he got involved. Starting out as an intern with Association of Equipment Manufacturers was a great opportunity for him to get his feet wet! 

After his internship AEM hired Maxx full time where he has continued to excel.  He started with the sales team which led to a promotion and his own sales territory, covering most of the Western part of the US.

"The greatest part about my job is watching a show come to fruition. It really brings our team closer together and gives us all a sense of pride to know that we built it. Having a great team really inspires everyone to continue with what they do and to continue to raise the bar for the industry." - Maxxwell Lebiecki

We asked Maxx if he felt IAEE has contributed to his growth and development. His response "In 2016 I was recognized as one of IAEE's top 20 under 30, which has opened more doors for me than I ever could have imagined. I got to meet some incredible people at EXPO! EXPO!, and immediately decided that I need to get involved as much as possible in the industry. I joined the YP group for IAEE, which has been fun and exciting. Since my 20 under 30 I have felt that my opinion has been recognized and I have a platform for my voice to be heard, which is a wonderful opportunity."  Maxx looks forward to attending EXPO!EXPO! in 2017 so he can reconnect with his fellow passionate industry leaders and colleagues.
