Jonathan Foresythe, 36, works in New York City as Account Manager at McVeigh Global Meetings and Events. As a 2018 40 Under 40 honoree, Foresythe discusses his passion for the events industry.
What I do: As an account manager, I am dedicated to providing my clients with the highest quality in meeting, conference and incentive management. I work with a team of amazing colleagues and build and retain relationships with my clients. I provide new and exciting ideas and keep up on the latest trends so that we can provide the best meetings and events possible.
Impressive stats: I recently talked a vendor into refunding a client their whole deposit and processing fee after a cancelation. Getting a $9,000 refund is always an added bonus.
What I do outside of work: You can usually find me in a theater watching a Broadway show or at an arena catching an awesome concert. I have an amazing collection of concert t-shirts! I also love little weekend adventures with friends.
