Event Producer and Creative Director - CA HQ
Alison Laesser-Keck has been producing events, both big and small, for thirteen fabulous years. Armed with a degree in counseling, ten years in hospitality, and another eleven years planning weddings, she's a quintessential "people person" and a true left brain/right brain split. In 2008, she branched out on her own to follow a dream - and the rest, as they say, is history. Alison is California born and raised, with strong Pacific Northwest and Midwest roots, and she enjoys yoga, wine, wellness, traveling, and celebrating whenever possible.
Event Producer and Operations Manager - CA HQ
Bryan Keck has been in hospitality since 1997, working for a James Beard award-winning restaurateur in Seattle prior to joining forces with Alison in 2010. As our operations manager, he oversees the many logistics involved in producing an event, although he's most passionate about the relationships we build with our clients and their families. Bryan is a proud Michigan native whose entire career has involved taking care of people. He loves the Detroit Red Wings, the beach, the gym, and working with his wife (his wife wrote this).
Event Designer and Coordinator - Detroit HQ
Arielle Clinthorne joined us in 2015 and is an event designer and our “hands on the ground” for our clients hosting in Michigan. With a degree in Neuroscience from University of Michigan (Go Blue!), Ari is a notorious perfectionist and lover of problem-solving and creative thinking. When she isn’t working with us, she coordinates outdoor experiences for the City of Ann Arbor, where she has been for the past eleven years. She loves getting outside, traveling, entertaining, and pouring over fashion and interior design publications and blogs.
