OPERATIONS MANAGER

Event Services Manager Allie King moved to Austin in 2018 after spending time in the art and philanthropy spheres of New York. There, she parlayed internships at Martha Stewart Living and The Metropolitan Museum of Art into an eventual Associate Management position at the Guggenheim, where she oversaw a portfolio of exclusive membership events. In her dual role at Kennedy Creative Events, she serves as both a sales manager and an event producer, working primarily on client prospecting and stewardship as well as event execution with the Fairmont Austin team. She holds an MA in Visual Arts Administration from NYU's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development. 

An avid cook and global museum enthusiast, she enjoys culinary pursuits and watching tennis. On weekends when she isn't traveling, she's discovering Austin's hidden gems, visiting new museum exhibits and walking her Sheltie, Copper, around Lady Bird Lake.

WHAT SHE'S BEEN UP TO LATELY: 

  • Working on exploring every restaurant and event space in Austin

  • Enjoying her Art Crowd membership at The Blanton Museum of Art

  • Cooking her way through Ina Garten’s cookbook collection
