A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

Rich has always had an itch for live events. He worked in dinner theater, directed shows for ESPN, and produced & directed everything from talk shows to parades to fashion shows. His shows run like clockwork… but the most fun clock you’ve ever seen.

When he’s not at Plum, he can be found in his workshop crafting cabinets and enjoying woodworking. Or tooling around on a pontoon boat. Or enjoying local baseball & football. We don’t think he’s likely to craft a wooden pontoon boat with a football player. Then again, he’s always up for a challenge.


WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO

First, the variety. Meetings and events have taken me around the world and to places the public doesn’t get to see. It’s not something I take lightly, it’s an honor and a privilege I’m thankful for. I don’t go to these great locations to see the world. (Side note: more often than not, we see the airport, our guest room at the hotel and the ballroom, it’s as exciting as that sounds).

Second, when we are doing a live show, there is an adrenaline rush. Once they start, there is no stopping them. Here’s my secret to live events: Don’t drink a lot of water before the show. No dancing allowed if you know what I mean.

Finally, being able to help my customers get their customers, sales people or guests excited, making the event memorable. It’s a challenge but I enjoy finding new ways to wow the audience. Just as often, they wow me.
