As part of our Journey to World Class, M&IW executives assumed new roles in early 2022 and aligned their Strategic Business Units and Centers of Excellence teams to create an integrated, one-team mentality. We also expanded the executive leadership team by welcoming a new Vice President of Event Management Services.
As we navigated the transition back to in-person events, it quickly became evident that the hotel and venue sourcing and contracting process had become more challenging than pre-pandemic.
