Not to mention, getting to attend a wide variety of cool events and music festivals! I love the energy that comes from a crowd of people in an especially fun environment. 

Biggest Accomplishments: My biggest accomplishment would probably be putting my entrepreneur spirit to work at a young age. I created and ran a successful jewelry business for 10 years prior to my transition to event marketing. I loved the experience of festivals so much that I decided to make a career out of it.

Jacque Vanatta
Florida Market MAnager

Describe yourself: I am a highly energetic, personable, and affectionate person who loves being spontaneous and a free-spirit, but I am also a perfectionist and spend a little too much time organizing and over-analyzing situations.  I would describe myself as a paradoxical extremist.  One thing that is always consistent though, is I love to be surrounded by laughter, my family, friends and my two pups-one in each hand.  Making people laugh is one of my favorite pastimes and I adore anyone with a great sense of humor.  I love having a good time with a huge smile plastered on my face. 

Biggest Accomplishments: I feel most proud of my relationship with my family and my friends.  I have an extremely close knit family and that has influenced and shaped the person am I am today and the person I strive to be every day.  My friends mean the world to me and though I meet new friends often, I’ve had the same core group of best friends ever since I was in Elementary school and they are my second family.

Always looking to have a great time doing anything I put my mind to.  I would describe myself as a young soul enjoying all new adventures life has to offer!

My plan is to make an impact using my creativity and energy to provide changes for the better.

Biggest Accomplishments: My biggest accomplishment was becoming the new Southeast Market Manager. Working for Brand Champion Marketing has created new opportunities for me to pursue! I’ve enjoyed every event and every second spent working and connecting with all the new people I come across.

BRandon Reason
Special Promotions Coordinator

Describe yourself: Just a kid from St Louis that happens to live in KC. I believe being true to yourself is always the best way to go. English is my first language, but I’m also fluent in sarcasm. I love all things that have to do with food, art, music, and laughter which means you’ll probably find me in a cool restaurant, with a great playlist, taking artistic pictures of my food, laughing with friends.

Biggest Accomplishment: My biggest accomplishment would be anytime that I get to put a smile on my daughter’s face, anything else fails in comparison. However, being able to wake up every morning and love what you get to do is a very close second.
