Katie Bradshaw has served as our Account Executive for 2.5 years. She’s a big fan of coffee and Beyoncé. After attending one of our Summer BBQs, she decided that CLE was the place for her.
How long have you worked at CLE?
Almost 2.5 years!
What is your role at CLE?
Account Executive, which means building relationships, hanging out with cool people and creating awesome events – I love it!
How did you first learn about the company?
Through Emily Giunta, who is also a CLE Account Executive. She and I worked together in my last role as a venue manager. I attended the CLE Summer BBQ and after seeing how organized and clean the warehouse was, I knew I wanted to be a part of the CLE family!
What is your favorite part of working here?
The people. We’re just one large family that cares about each other, always have each other’s back, and get to celebrate our successes together. I remember thinking after my first week at CLE that if I ever needed anything, I knew I could count on any of my coworkers to rush and rescue me. I still feel that trust and respect every day.
What is something you learned in the last week?
How to hire Spider-Man for an event. Seriously.
What’s your hometown?
Clarion, which is located in north-central Iowa. It’s home of the Cowgirls and Cowboys – and the International Teddy Bear Festival.
What was the best concert you’ve ever attended?
Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s OTR II concert last summer in Columbus, OH. The production value was absolutely amazing! And Beyoncé was incredible as always. ?
What is your favorite family tradition?
Family dinners that last hours. We laugh and talk for hours and enjoy just being together.
What has been your favorite project at CLE?
Anything that adds a new challenge. Finding interpreters for an event with 48 hours notice was exciting!
What’s your drink of choice?
Depending on the time of day: Black coffee or Diet Coke / Wine or Martinis.
What’s your go-to karaoke song?
No karaoke for me. But my walk-up song would definitely be “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan!
What hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
Traveling, spending time with my guy, Ty, cooking and learning about wine!
Want to work with Katie on your next event?
She would love to hear from you.
