Congratulations are in order for one of our “super people!” Last week, The Event Team destination management company promoted Marcie Booth from Operations Manager to Senior Operations Manager. “Marcie has quickly become an outstanding member of the Operations team,” said President/CEO Matt Robbins. “She is constantly receiving rave reviews from clients and she embodies our Core Value to ‘provide exceptional and dependable service through prompt practice.’ We are very happy to promote her to Senior Operations Manager and look for more great things from Marcie.”
Geraldine Caedo, General Manager of our Los Angeles event planning office, said “In her almost 2 years with The Event Team, Marcie has truly emerged as a leader, not only in our Los Angeles office, but for the company as a whole. I’m very impressed by the growth and ambition that Marcie displays on a daily basis. As a Senior Operations Manager, in addition to running programs, she will be pursuing opportunities to improve efficiencies as well as develop programs to foster relationships with our vendors and field staff. I look forward to seeing how Marcie will grow with her new position.”
We took a moment to chat with Marcie about her role at The Event Team and within the events industry. Take a moment to get to know her below!
TET: What do you love about Operations?
MB: I love that I get to interact with our clients and their guests. The reaction after they had a successful program always makes me smile!
TET: You have such a great relationship with our Los Angeles clients, staff, and vendors? What’s the key to building relationships in this industry?
MB: I try to be open and understand what their needs are. I’m not a miracle worker, but I try my best to make their event, logistically perfect from start to finish.
TET: You’ve been in the Los Angeles event industry for several years now. What changes have you noticed?
MB: The biggest changes are that people are more savvy and want to be more a part of the planning process. Five years ago, you could be given a budget and a vision and run with it; now, I’ve noticed that with the concept of Pinterest, planners want to give you specific ideas on their vision.
TET: You’ve operated programs for The Event Team from Santa Barbara to San Diego…what has been your favorite event so far and why?
MB: Wow, that’s hard because I’ve operated some pretty cool events! I have two that stand out: the first would be a beautiful cocktail reception at the Ritz Carlton Marina Del Rey. It was my first chance to have real input on an event at The Event Team; the overhead lanterns were beautiful and added a fun California chic look to the reception. The second would be one client where I got to work in Los Angeles and Orange County all in one program!
TET: When you’re not operation flawless events for The Event Team DMC, you curate a lifestyle blog called Curvy Girls Can. Tell us more!
MB: Curvy Girls Can is a lifestyle blog that is all about being a self-loving, confident woman with curves! It doesn’t matter your size or the kind of curves you have, my mission is help women love the skin they’re in and sharing my personal experiences of food prep and fitness to beauty tips and dating.
