Emergency Preparedness and Risk Management – Are You Ready?

Marty has spent her entire career mastering the event world. Her professional background began on the client side, where she learned the event business from the ground up while working at a leading fortune 500 company. From there, she took her experience as a client and transitioned to running multiple DMC locations in the mid-Atlantic. In 2013 she joined Hosts Global, where she has more than doubled the size of the global alliance of DMCs and introduced best practices and standards across the membership. Marty is the 2018-2019 president of ADMEI and leader in the hospitality industry’s focus to drive emergency preparedness and GDPR preparation.

Outside of the office, Marty spends her time with her two girls and two dogs, and occasional foster dogs as well. She loves to cook and entertain friends and family in her home.
