The Mohanna Team

Mitch Mohanna

Founder
Starting in 1979, Mitch Mohanna helped associations prosper through the sale of their advertising, exhibits and sponsorships. Mohanna’s mission is to increase non-dues revenue for associations, societies and institutes by building brand awareness for suppliers. Success for associations and their vendors is the cultural heart of Mohanna Sales Representatives (MSR). Mohanna recruits tirelessly and continuously. We interview scientifically and exhaustively so that MSR is staffed by the most talented and effective sales and support people in North Texas. The sales team members who are identified and hired will apply an ethical, patient, consultative, professional selling approach. They build trusting relationships with clients who then support the associations that MSR represents.  “It’s an uncommon sales person who can succeed at sales. With MSR you don’t just get exceptional sales representatives, you get a phenomenal support team as well. We go to work for you as an organization.”


Jarren Mohanna

President
Jarren Jones Mohanna has managed the administrative and IT side of MSR from the beginning. She oversees HR, IT, and the financial department, making sure all the details are in place to execute the company’s big picture plans. She leads the administrative and customer support teams with a “we will win” attitude that promotes persistence and brings energy to problem solving. “Every member of the team is a vital part of the whole. We try to give them the best tools, training, and rewards so they can each do what they do best, whether it’s sales, customer service or administrative support. We can teach the skills, but we look for people with the right attitude and then do everything we can to help them grow and succeed, which ensures that our clients grow and succeed.”
