Angela Layton, CMP Healthcare Management Systems, Inc. Past President, 2009-2010 MPI Tennessee
As a member of the Les Dames d’Escoffier International’s Board of Directors four years in a row, I worked closely with AEC Management. All of the Board meetings and International Conferences were arranged and facilitated by AEC Management and I found their services were highly professional; from securing arrangements with hotels, restaurants and venues, to coordinating logistics for a group of several hundred professional women, there was never a glitch in planning or meeting a deadline.
I’ve worked with Greg Jewell and Nick Vaccaro, both seasoned veterans in the meeting planning, events and hospitality industries. Organizations that hire AEC Management can be assured of receiving a wealth of service combined with supportive and innovative leadership.
