Presenting Atlanta isn’t a company. It’s us. We’re a fun, hard-working bunch who have each been hand-picked (a practice that’s now illegal in 17 states and Puerto Rico) for our skills, attitudes and creativity, which we apply daily to help your events live up to, and exceed, your wildest expectations. All of which, in our professional opinion, is pretty extraordinary.
Cindy Fowler’s entire life is an event. That’s why she’s so good at making other people’s events special. This is the woman who helped bring the Olympics to Atlanta, then showed the world the meaning of Southern hospitality. She has brains, style, experience, and contacts that are so good, the CIA calls her for information. If you have an event waiting to happen, talk to the woman who is an event waiting to happen. Talk to Cindy.
Cindy has been inducted into the Atlanta Hospitality Hall of Fame™. CLICK HERE to view this video and others!
Cindy’s partner, Richard, is our version of Indiana Jones. Richard gets amazing things done while dodging traps, poison arrows, high-strung caterers and the occasional angry native. Meanwhile, he's busy making sales proposals, working with clients, talking with Atlanta's Convention & Visitors Bureau, hotels, restaurants, band managers and everyone who's anyone in town. He's earned his stripes as a Principal after working over 20 years at Presenting Atlanta.
Lynn Ford, Presenting Atlanta’s Director of Operations, is the best tour guide since Sacagawea. Remember her?? Hint, Lewis and Clark! She knows Atlanta’s history better than Margaret Mitchell and knows the City’s streets so well taxi drivers ask her for directions. But Lynn’s contributions to Presenting Atlanta go beyond just designing and leading tours. She works closely with the entire team and provides back-up wherever and whenever it’s needed.
We were in quite a state when we hired Georgia (aren’t we lucky her name isn’t California Van?). Georgia is a Partner at Presenting Atlanta. She has created hundreds of events and is loved by each and every one of her hundreds of clients. They love Georgia because Georgia loves her work, whether she’s arranging shuttles for thousands of event-goers, booking a jazz trio for an intimate evening or finding a Cirque act to perform high above guests’ heads at a welcoming reception. Georgia should be on your mind. We guarantee your event will be on hers.
Mary Croft is the keeper of Presenting Atlanta’s books. Not to mention lots of her own. Mary loves to read. Expense reports (Fiction). Invoices (Non-fiction). And books by Alexander McCall Smith, who wrote “The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency”. Actually, sifting through all of our business records makes Mary sort of a financial detective herself. Maybe Alexander will write a book about her.
Sydney is an Atlanta native and uses her local expertise and hospitality experience to give her clients the inside track as a Presenting Atlanta Account Manager. Sydney has worked for the Ritz, St. Regis and Four Seasons -- the Atlanta luxury hotel trifecta. She knows where the kitchens keep the good caviar and makes sure her clients get it. She's also summited a Patagonia glacier, had a paper presented at the World Engineering Conference and owns a dog-cat named Billie. Expect the unexpected with Sydney.
His official title at Presenting Atlanta is Assistant Director of Transportation, but like everybody else around here, Eric does more than just one job. He helps with all kinds of logistics for our clients and relishes the fact that no two days are ever alike. Give Eric a challenge and there’s nothing this young Turk (his father is from Istanbul) can’t do.
Katie came to Presenting Atlanta from the University of Alabama where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a perfect 4.0 average. Even more perfect is the fact she created her own major, Entertainment Management and Promotion, which just happens to be perfect training for her work as a Account Manager here at PA, as were side trips working for the PGA Tour and Ritz-Carlton. She's an accomplished equestrian hunter-jumper to boot, so Katie has no trouble jumping through hoops for her clients. Perfect.
Ryan Feininger, Presenting Atlanta Sales and Operations Associate, has an elegantly simple job description. Do absolutely everything perfectly all the time for our clients.

She founded her own line of athletic gear, managed a retail clothing store on Madison Avenue and for years made celebrities look good working for fashion house Elie Tahari in the Big Apple. Now she's back in the Big Peach making our clients look good. She helps us take ready-to-wear budgets and make them look like couture.
