The Glide Path
Over 15 years, as word spread that it was possible to arrange a Cameron Mitchell catered experience for weddings, corporate events, sporting or life events, Mel’s team grew to 20 managers, 75 full time associates and 300+ part time associates. The capstone was the creation of an umbrella company to house all the catering-related departments the team had developed over the years.
Cameron Mitchell Premier Events was christened in 2013 and includes Cameron Mitchell Catering for off-site services; the on-site venues (such as Darby House, Ivory Room and The Exchange); Sports and Leisure; Cam’s 2U; and Specialty Services.
When asked to name three people who have been instrumental in supporting her team’s ideas and guests, Melissa first gives credit to her husband who “supported me 1,000 percent through every challenge” and then focuses on three groups:
The executive team at Cameron Mitchell Restaurants who allow the Premier Events team to own their path and to be entrepreneurs while being available for guidance, growth and cheering on the team at every step.
The vendor partners who support every event and the Premier Events team with the same “The answer is ‘yes’ what is the question?” attitude that drives every Cameron Mitchell service interaction.
And her personal favorite – Cameron Mitchell Premier Events’ associates and managers. “No matter what the venture, event, situation, challenge or distance, the associates of Team CMPE are the most passionate, hard-working, durable, hospitable, genuine and amazing people I have ever been surrounded by! They always rise to the occasion and stand shoulder-to-shoulder to ensure success. This team can and will make ANYTHING happen. I am lucky and blessed.”
It's said that “the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” Congratulations to the Cameron Mitchell Premier Events team as they celebrate a continuing journey of many thousand miles and steps together.
