About Darrell Gehrt

2020 Member of the Year

Cvent Sales leader Darrell Gehrt has been an IES member since 2015 and serves on the IES Executive Council.

His professional career has been defined by taking on a series of entrepreneurial ventures that have grown rapidly.

His professional experiences range from starting as a commission-only sales rep, to co-founding a business services company, which three years later was successfully sold to a competitor.

Gehrt joined Cvent in January 2013 to run sales for its Web Survey Division. As the division grew, so did his responsibilities and ultimately Darrell led the rebrand project from Cvent Web Surveys to Inquisium, driving a robust go-to-market plan and growth strategy. In 2016, Darrell’s responsibilities expanded once again and today he also oversees Cvent’s comprehensive mobile solutions division including top line sales, client satisfaction and retention, marketing, and product development.
