Hargrove recently announced the addition of industry veteran Tom Durkee to its growing special events team as a sales executive.
Hargrove, founded in 1946, is involved with a wide range of high profile events globally including recent success with the World Equestrian Games in Lexington Kentucky, the Charity Works Ball at the National Building Museum and G20 Seoul Summit 2010.
“Hargrove continues its strong growth pattern in spite of the economic downturn,” said Tim McGill, chief executive officer of Hargrove. “Clients rely on not only our creativity, but extensive capabilities and reliability. We welcome Tom as the newest addition to our team of established event professionals.”
Durkee brings over a decade of events experience to Hargrove. He worked closely with Hargrove as an account executive with Occasions Caterers, where he worked on social events and galas in Washington, including the Corcoran Ball, Opera Ball and U.S. Chamber of Commerce annual holiday party.
“The market has undergone tremendous change in the last two years, and planners need partners like Hargrove who have an expertise in every aspect of the event,” said Durkee, who recently served as director of catering and special events for Café Milano and Embassy Row Catering.
Durkee will leverage his broad experience in the events industry to help Hargrove’s expansion efforts into new markets and reintroduce itself to Washington’s established event community.
