I’ve always had a deep passion for organization and event planning, and I believe that every event deserves to be astonishing. While working in the industry, I saw a better way to approach meeting & event logistics and operations, which inspired me to create my own company, The CEO, Inc. in 1991. I have since built a large network of invaluable industry relationships with experienced and reliable vendors. My team and I will listen and understand your vision to be able to produce and execute a one of a kind, expertly designed and managed event.
