The Meetings & Incentives has been growing! We’ve recently hired two new Program Managers to our team. Read below for a little more professional and personal information about these fun-loving gals!
Stacey Ehlinger could also go by the title of Denver Diva. Stacey has over 6 years of event and meeting planning experience including celebrations, meetings, teambuilding, and group transportation for groups from 5 to 5,000+. With her years of experience working for a Denver DMC and Denver CVB, Stacey is knowledgeable in the local scene, familiar with the right venues and vendors to use to create a memorable experience.
Forget Thanksgiving and Christmas, perhaps the MOST important day of this pie fanatic’s year is on January 23rd, National Pie Day, in which Stacey will be chowing down on the Cherry variety, thankyouverymuch. Besides her love for pies of all kinds, this girl also has a passion for music. Listening to tunes all day, Stacey likes everything from Muse to the Beatles and just about everything in between. When she is not eating pie or listening to music (or even better, both), she may be hanging out on top of one of Colorado’s many 14-ers as she has taken up an interest in hiking since moving from the Hawkeye state over 4 years ago. She is M&I’s resident beer expert, and she appropriately refers to Colorado as the Napa Valley of Beers. Cheers!

Suzanne Rivers, our resident Detail Aficionado, comes to Denver from the Windy City! She has been in the hospitality industry for 6+ years and her most recent position was with GEP, a Global Destination Management Company, where she supported the Vice President. She has worked on large name events including the Chicago Thanksgiving Parade and GEP’s Executive Summits. Her talents lie in site selection, customer service, program management and of course, details!
Letterpress, Stationary and Note Cards, oh my! This pretty paper diva has a love for paper of all kinds and appreciates the dying art of hand writing letters and messages to family and friends. She could easily open her own store with her collection of unique and lovely paper! Playing on soccer and kickball leagues, friendly competition is part of her game. But playing sports isn’t the only thing that keeps her competitive. This self proclaimed card shark will give you a run for your money in hearts, gin rummy and crazy eight’s—who’s dealing? If not on the field or at the table, keep an eye out for Suzanne at one of the many craft, handmade and vintage markets around town. She loves searching for antiques (with Mom), traveling (New Zealand and Austrailia are tied for First) and making people laugh (her sarcasm is both hilarious and contagious). Sincerely, your friend Suz.
