Each quarter, The Event Team recognizes a few “super people” who have contributed to our company’s success in a huge way. Our Southern California destination management company relies on great relationships with vendors, staff, and hoteliers to provide successful corporate events and happy clients. Here are the fourth quarter winners for 2015!
Full Time Employee of the Quarter: Monica Paniagua, Sales Assistant (San Diego, CA)
Monica just passed her one year mark with The Event Team, but in that time she has grown and contributed to the company immensely. Tasked with the challenge of keeping up with Director of Sales Romy Linde, who services 33% of our clientele annually, Monica quickly learned the ropes and has already assisted with proposals for over 50 accounts. “Monica’s great attitude, work ethic, and organization are just a few of her wonderful qualities,” says Romy. “I am grateful to have her by my side!”
In November, when Romy’s second baby decided to arrive a few weeks early and when Sales Manager Rachel Horgan announced her move to Seattle, Monica confidently stepped into the Sales Manager role to manage pending accounts, take new client requests, and maintain weekly reach-out to our valued hotel partners. In addition to keeping our clients and hoteliers happy, she still finds time to provide crucial sales training to our newest team members. “Monica is the ideal co-worker,” says Director of Marketing Lindsay White. “She deserves to be recognized not only for her hard work and team spirit but also for the respect and kindness she shows others. She’s the kind of person you look forward to working with every day.”
Matt Robbins, president of The Event Team agrees. “Monica has quietly worked her way into an irreplaceable part of the team. She is amazingly fast, thorough, and detail-oriented with her proposals. She has stepped up big time in Romy’s absence and has done a great job dealing with clients and hoteliers.”
Field Staff Employee of the Quarter: Pat Conway (San Diego, CA)
Pat has been a member of our staff for several years and has proven over and over that he is someone you can depend on and takes the job seriously. Under pressure he remains calm and keeps the guests’ best interest in mind at all times, thinks quickly on his feet and continually goes above and beyond for our operations department.
Hotelier of the Quarter: Chelsea Liu, Andaz (San Diego, CA)
Chelsea Liu is a San Diego Meeting Certified Sales Manager at Andaz San Diego, a beautiful luxury boutique hotel in the heart of the Gaslamp District. In her time at Andaz, Chelsea has developed a great partnership with The Event Team, helping to make Andaz one of our top hotel partners for corporate events in the downtown San Diego area. “Chelsea and I clicked from the start,” says The Event Team’s Director of Sales Romy Linde. “She has such an amazing attitude and is so talented. She is a machine and I love working with her!”
Vendor of the Quarter: Sun Diego (San Diego, CA)
Although SunDiego is a new valued partner to The Event Team, they are a leader in the hospitality and corporate events industry. Their equipment is always clean and well-maintained, and their drivers are true professionals and partners with our staff. On the sales side, Sun Diego is always willing to work with our team to offer competitive pricing that helps The Event Team win business. Changing vendors is never easy, but SunDiego helped make the process a smooth transition. We look forward to a great 2016 together!
