From there she moved to Virgin America where she led a sales team that signed key accounts and usurped market share from the goliaths in the industry to help propel the little-airline-that-could into IPO status. She learned firsthand the value and importance of culture within a team and company from Sir Richard Branson, who taught her “if I can do that so can you” which was a natural fit for her ambitious and competitive spirit. 

“It is a thrill to join a company on a mission to ‘Transform the Business of Fun’ and know that I will be part of making that happen.” Said LaDonna Whitaker, Director of North America and South America, Embed Sales.

Joining LaDonna’s team is Susan Hesson, as Sales Executive. With over 20-years of sales management and technology experience, Susan has a deep understanding of sales strategy and how to tackle and drive growth. “I am excited by the additional knowledge Susan will bring to the team and how it will elevate the entire Sales function.” Said LaDonna.
