Extraordinarily Professional

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.

Richard Jones

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.

Georgia Van

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.

Garry Rainey

Garry Rainey runs our transportation department like Scotty ran the Starship Enterprise. He’s organized everything from simple airport limousine pick-ups and bus tours to Presidential motorcades (we’re not kidding). Hail to the Transportation Chief!

Sydney Harris

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.

Tracey Rodgers

Tracey is Presenting Atlanta’s accountant with almost 20 years of corporate experience. This is not his first rodeo and knows what he’s doing. But he’s no boring bean counter. He’s from a country due west of Atlanta called Texas. Tracey lived in Lubbock, Texas – the home of Buddy Holly—a rock and roll legend who coincidentally looked like, well, an accountant. Tracey loves Tex-Mex food, the Dallas Cowboys and his favorite actor is John Wayne. So relax, pardner. Tracey is a straight shooter who knows where every buffalo nickel is being spent.

Lynn Ford

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.

Katie Gunderson

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.

Casey Crain

His official title at Presenting Atlanta is Assistant Director of Transportation, but like everybody else around here, Casey 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 Casey a challenge and there’s nothing this car-loving entrepreneur can’t do.

Ryan Butler

Ryan, Presenting Atlanta Sales and Operations Associate, has an elegantly simple job description. Do absolutely everything perfectly all the time for our clients. She comes fashionably well prepared. 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.

Hannah Thompson

Who says you can’t have it all? With Hannah Thompson Presenting Atlanta does. If you’ve got a problem, Hannah can solve it. She’s the MacGyver of events planning. Her favorite part of the job is that every day is different–which means she has cat-like reflexes and is constantly ready to pivot. She’s a real people person and loves bringing clients together through food, beverage, and shared experience. What more could you ask for? How about a dinner rec? Hannah can direct you to the most buzzed about and delicious spots in town. Following restaurant trends is her true passion. When she’s not working or making dinner reservations, she’s floating down the Chattahoochee River with friends or soaking up the beautiful Atlanta sunshine.
