An unwavering focus on coordinating memorable and “buzz-generating” events has resulted in:

  • Exceeding revenue goals by up to 375%
  • Producing record-setting gains in donors/major gifts—up to $4.2M raised per event
  • Driving rapid increases in store traffic and customer base
  • Attracting capacity crowds for attendance of 5,000+
  • Strengthening brand identity and improving customer loyalty

The enclosed résumé provides more details of events I have coordinated for sectors including:

  • Hospitality Groups
  • Restaurant Chains
  • Consumer Packaged Goods
  • Nonprofits
  • Banking and Financial Services
  • Software and Technology
  • Higher Education
