November: Month of Katie – Part 2

We’re still celebrating the wonderful Katie Bowen this month! Check out what Katie’s colleagues have to say about her…we didn’t even have to bribe them!

“Katie does so many things around the office and is tremendously valuable to the team. Her ability to handle and produce fantastic proposals for Dick and Bill is amazing, and she also processes all of the office paperwork and billing. Add her ability to do CAD drawings and design brochures and you have one of our most talented teammates.”
Matt Robbins, President

“It is hard to tell when Katie is flustered because she is always cool as a cucumber (I should take lessons from her). Katie helps keep the office running, assists 2 sales managers and also offers her graphic skills to events. Even juggling all these balls, Katie always has a beautiful smile on her face (and a Starbucks by her side).”
Paige Weeber, VP of Operations

“Don’t let her sweet smile deceive you, Katie is a powerhouse that can do anything! I adore how she is able to multitask and manage expectations with such ease and grace.”
Danny Fisk, Los Angeles General Manager

“Katie is my creative partner in crime. Her eye for design and attention for detail have played a huge role in securing some of our biggest programs. On top of this, her ability to keep the office running smoothly and work on a million projects all at once impress me every day!”
Lindsay White, Director of Marketing

“Katie is a wonderful asset to the team. She is definitely one of the most creative, and I love that she is always willing to jump in and help. Even though usually behind the scenes, Katie is a force to be reckoned with. She always brings a smile to my face!”
Romy Linde, Director of Sales

“I don’t know what I would do without my partner in crime at the office! She quotes bridesmaids with me, shares my passion for Celine Dion, and will never let a good meat and cheese board go to waste at industry events. Katie has really changed a lot in the past year, and it’s been exciting to watch her grow both professionally as well as in her personal life.”
Rachel Horgan, Sales Manager

“Katie has impressed me from the very start, with her ability to learn things the first time and always mistake-free. We are very lucky to have her on the sales team, and be utilizing her graphics and design talents, she has elevated our proposals and presentations to an all-new level. Professionally, she has exceeded all expectations, and her unique sense of humor always keeps us guessing and really makes the office a fun place to be!”
Bill Yahres, VP of Sales & Marketing

“Katie has dramatically upped The Event Team’s design game. Her skill in Computer-Aided Design was instrumental in The Event Team winning the “Taste of California” block party we ran last August. The 1200 person event was attended by guests in San Diego for the Global Business Travel Assocation’s 2013 Convention. Our client commented the decision-making process the CAD helped the planning committee visualize the party. Highly skilled, professional and astute, Katie is one of our team’s key players!”
Dick Burson, National Sales Manager

“Katie is a very creative asset to The Event Team. She looks outside of the box, therefore she can see ways to improve our proposals, which helps us stand out from our competition.”
Jennifer Dotson, Operations Manager

“Katie is awesome. She is very sweet, reserved, and quieter than some of us in the office (not such a bad thing), but the time it takes to get to know her is well worth it. Although her talent and creativity is instantly recognizable, there is a side to her we have all come to know that is witty, sarcastic, and a lot of fun to be around! As far as work goes, the way she manages to do so many things at once continues to confuse and impress me. How does she do it???”
Jackie Fennelly, Executive Assistant
