This week, we’re recognizing some of our favorite San Diego event planners and employees from the first quarter. These “super people” help create The Event Team experience from start to finish. Wherever they are, “superior events” are sure to follow!

Full Time Employee of the Quarter – Bill Yahres, VP Business Development

First up, Bill Yahres is our full time employee of the quarter! Here at The Event Team since 1993, Bill is a veteran among San Diego event planners. (Coincidentally, he’s a also a U.S. Veteran).

“I’ve been impressed with Bill over the last few months,” said President Matt Robbins. “He’s had great success going after Convention business and has proven that his methods work. Also, he shows great leadership and helps broaden our DMC network.”

VP of Sales Romy Linde said, “Bill’s already landed some big clients for 2018. What’s more, he works hard to ensure the success of The Event Team and is a team player.”

Additional thoughts from VP of Operations Paige Weeber: “Bill has a heart of gold and keeps The Event Team as a priority. In the past few years, he’s found new ways to obtain business and strengthen relationships with industry planners. Bill is the “class clown” of the office; you can always count on him to make you smile.”
