Bailey Roth, 32, works in Toronto as president of Redstone Agency, Inc. As a 2019 40 Under 40 honoree, Roth discusses her passion for the events industry.
What I do: I am the president and co-founder of Redstone Agency, a boutique event and association management company that is headquartered in Toronto, but operated nationally and internationally. I have more than 500 events under my belt in my career and have developed an approach to event management that puts people first.
How I got here: Graduating during a recession (2008) made finding a job more challenging, but I took an exciting opportunity at an association management company as an event coordinator, never expecting a career in events to take me to where I am now. I worked my way up from an event coordinator, to a manager to the director of events and human resources. I took everything I learned about building and growing a business, which I decided to do for myself in 2015.
Greatest career accomplishment: Building our business from a team of two to almost 30 in three years while raising my 5-year-old and 1-year-old.
What I do outside of work: Take my two boys to the park!
