Katie is one badass chick! She can steady a boat in the office or on the production line, and keep it sailing straight until its destination. With a background in special events, she knows how to woo just about anyone with her wit, determination and savvy style. Katie has worked with our most demanding partners for many years. Her professionalism allows her to successfully manage and fulfill upon their requests, and to produce seamlessly executed experiences no matter what unexpected storms come her way. We have begged her to share her secrets, and concluded that the artificial parts in her heart, brain and knee must have something to do with her abilities.
Ben sees it like it is. His easy-going, direct personality comes from a history of working closely with many different types of people in many different settings. This started as a young boy on a farm with 5 siblings and in his professional life, expanded to races, muds runs, food and wine events, concerts and more. Ben’s experience in event production has taught him to be objective and cut through all the B.S. to get straight to the point, accomplishing the task at hand with ease. Ben is a heavy lifter and he keeps the rest of us honest.
Myriah is our accounting nerd. She leads our team through the financial maze that is experiential, keeping a close pulse on our efficiency and budget management. With four kids at home, a team of ‘crazy kids’ at work, and various athletic endeavors on the side, she never backs down from a challenge. Myriah learned accounting when she was 14 years old and has past experience with a large property management company, several years in the tax industry and has owned a business. Though logical and calculated in the workplace, Myriah has an adventurous, daring and spirited personality. She brings light-heartedness to our team dynamic.
Natalie is never afraid to try something new. Her daring personality allows her to think dynamically when developing new ideas or solutions. She is very perceptive and won’t let things fall through the cracks. Natalie is reliable and will pick up the pieces when needed, while constantly looking for ways to improve productivity and efficiency. Her background in finance, account management and business development allows her to be analytical and deliberate, while her silly, adventurous side drives creativity.
Keeping a smile on her face every step of the way, Lucy is a diligent worker and willing to get her hands dirty. Despite tripping over her own feet on occasion, she will pull her weight in the ‘towline’. Lucy brings bundles of energy into each project she touches. After working in a boutique PR and marketing agency she has a unique perspective that elevates our team’s workflow. Lucy doesn’t take life too seriously, which is likely a result of her half Canadian heritage, eh?
Peggy is the mastermind behind many of our events’ success. The grace and skill with which she runs some of our largest events is a testament to her planning and efficiency. After working on some of the world’s largest events including the PGA Tour, Peggy is thoughtful and thorough, leaving nothing untouched or unseen. She enjoys a nice glass of red and some yoga to balance the chaos. On a good day, you might catch Peggy blasting and singing to ridiculous 90’s songs in the office.
