Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes, Turn and Face The Strange

There’s been a slew of changes in the strange year 2020, particularly here at Centrifuge Media. The pandemic directly impacted what we do and how we do it. The event industry, as a whole, suffered immensely and was forced to rethink its strategies.

Our incredible team members at CMI have been nothing short of rockstars, tackling every challenge thrown their way – from learning the ins and outs of new technology to a complete pivot to virtual events. Failure wasn’t – and never will be – an option! Their hard work paid off, with a long list of happy clients and fantastic events, which started out live in January and quickly switched over to fully virtual by midyear after the initial quarantine period.

Our achievements, as a team, wouldn’t be possible without every single employee giving 110 percent. For a few, their efforts came with great reward. We’re proud to announce several promotions at Centrifuge as we close out the year.

Fausto Turro, who started at Centrifuge in February of 2019, was promoted from Senior Event Coordinator to Project Manager.

“Fausto has been a tremendous asset to the team this year with his knowledge of Zoom, technical aptitude, willingness to learn [and] positive attitude,” Adrienne Bogner, Account Supervisor said.

Olivia Smith, who was hired in June of 2018, was promoted from Graphic Designer to Senior Graphic Designer.

“Today she is still blazing the trails with her passion, boldness, & efficiency with everything creative,” Morris Young, Associate Creative Director, said. “I truly admire Olivia for always looking at how we can improve our workflow & processes.” Young said Smith quickly became a standout this year with learning new technologies to improve our product.

Jessie Burton, who has been working with Centrifuge for just over two years, was promoted from Senior Event Coordinator to Account Manager.

“Jessie has been another tremendous asset to the team this year with her client rapport, relationship building skills, willingness to learn, aptitude for learning new technologies and her incredible attention to detail,” Bogner said.

We also recognize Lindsay Clapp, who started with Centrifuge in November 2019. Clapp has switched roles from Event Manager to Account Manager. “With the shift in our business to mainly virtual meetings there is a greater need for Lindsay as an Account Manager,” Praise Wortham Collins, Associate Director of Event Services, said.
