Here we are, already nearing the end of the second quarter! Seems like the last few months passed in the blink of an eye. In that short time, we operated many incredible programs with the help of our corporate event planning partners. Below you’ll find a few “super people” that earned special recognition during this period.
Full Time Employee of the Quarter – Paige Weeber, VP of Operations
This quarter’s winner is known to run a tight ship! President Matt Robbins said, “Paige has been leading our Ops department for over 10 years. Her background as a Meeting Planner and Hotel CSM allows her to see all sides of the program.” Our Sales team knows they can rely on Paige to keep their clients happy. VP Business Devleopment Bill Yahres notes Paige’s “knowledge and ability to manage multiple functions have always been the glue holding our ship together.” DOS Romy Linde agrees. “Paige goes above and beyond; she is a true team player and works hard to get the job done. Also, her attention to detail is unsurpassed, and her dedication makes her shine!” DOO Jenn Dotson adds, “Paige is amazing at what she does and is a great resource for information. Her attention to detail and commitment to clients shows in the constant positive feedback she receives.”
Field Staff Employee of the Quarter – Dan McCollum
Dan has been a tour guide for The Event Team since 2000. He is our “go to” for any questions we have in Los Angeles and has been a huge asset to a repeat client we’ve serviced for the past three years. This quarter, Dan was able to assist the operations team in L.A. taking the lead role in working with a client, staffing the program, and managing the vendors. Our client raved about Dan, saying “he is patient, cordial, and doesn’t seem to be flustered by anything that is thrown hiw way.” Dan is always a pleasure to work with. He keeps our clients’ expectations in mind and always strives to exceed them.
Vendor of the Quarter – Bike and Kayak Tours, Inc.
A new vendor to The Event Team, Mike Prickett and team at Bike and Kayak Tours are always quick and attentive to our needs. What’s more, we love thier excellent onsite customer service. We find it refreshing to work with partners who understand the need for quick turnaround and we appreciate that Bike and Kayak’s availability to assist us at all times. We look forward to more fun outings with Bike and Kayak Tours though 2017!
Hotelier of the Quarter – Bill Matheny, Hotel Del Coronado
Bill Matheny, Director of National Sales at Hotel Del Coronado, is a longtime supporter of The Event Team. Director of Sales Romy Linde said “I have had the pleasure of working with Bill on various sites and programs. He is a true professional, and I have learned many selling tips from him. Bill’s confidence and humor wins over clients every time.” Thank you Bill for being a wonderful partner!
