We are celebrating the news that one of our Senior Project Managers, Alex Gee, has been named on C&IT’s A-List 2020 - the UK’s top 35 agency planners under 35
C&IT Magazine, a leading digital magazine and website dedicated to the UK meetings, conferences and events market, has awarded one of our Senior Project Managers a place on this year’s A-List.
Each year C&IT invites agencies to nominate their top talent under 35 years old to be put forward for the A-List. The nominations always flood in for this list of 35 outstanding event professionals under 35, so we were delighted to learn that Alexandra (Alex) Gee has been awarded her well-deserved spot. The list is highly regarded for its recognition of up-and-coming event talent, who have the future of our industry in their hands.
The business felt Alex was a standout candidate to be nominated for the A-List, as she spends each and every day going over and above for her colleagues, suppliers, delegates and clients alike and is the embodiment of our company values. As a result of this, towards the end of last year she was officially recognised for her contribution and dedication by being awarded ‘Employee of the Year’ which is voted for by her managers and peers. An exceptional achievement for a truly exceptional person.
Since joining Ashfield Meetings & Events as an undergraduate, Alex has excelled in all positions she has held within the company. Her outstanding abilities have seen her progress from Project Executive, to Senior Project Executive to Project Manager and most recently to Senior Project Manager in only three and a half years, and she has met every new opportunity with a positive attitude and a determination to succeed.
In addition to winning the favour of our clients, Alex is constantly on the lookout for ways to further her knowledge and experience not just through our in-house training and development opportunities, but is also keen to find ways to develop processes too. She is a critical member of the business and a true inspiration to colleagues around her.
Account Director, Jan Wittkopp, commented: “I was delighted to hear that Alex was awarded a place on the A-List. Alex works across many complex projects, yet still dedicates the time to provide training to the wider team including new starters – all while enrolling on additional development opportunities for continual improvement of her own knowledge and skills. Alex is passionate, energetic, committed and genuinely inspirational. To say she is an asset to the team, our clients and our business as a whole is an understatement.”
Alex, along with the C&IT A-Listers for 2020, will now be invited to a photoshoot and interview on 30 March, followed by the official A-List party on 30 April at the Odeon Luxe Leicester Square. C&IT will also crown their A-Lister of the Year at the C&IT Awards in September. Of the 35 recognised on the A-List, the judges will decide on an overall winner.
