A Word from Our Founder and CEO

“At Select Event Group, it is my belief that our capabilities are the combination of several factors. One, of course, is the quantity, quality, and appropriateness of the equipment that we make available to our Clients. Other factors include an enabling management structure, comprehensive systems and procedures to support the business, a sound capital structure and a culture that promotes individual accountability, demands commitment to client service excellence and rewards creativity in problem solving.

“Ultimately though, it is the individuals who serve our clients who are our most valued resource. Quite simply, it is our people who define our capabilities and our people of whom I am most proud. They are dedicated, talented, and passionate about the service they perform and collectively make up the Select family. I believe this is why we, the Select family, make one of the most capable event services companies in the industry.”
