After beginning her career in the radio industry in Massachusetts, working in Public Relations for a natural history museum, and in marketing for the Worcester, MA Telegram, Jacqui used these experiences to jumpstart her successful events management career spanning more than 30 years.

Working with ASM Global, a public facility management company, Jacqui joined the opening teams at the Broward County/Ft. Lauderdale Convention Center and the Rhode Island Convention Center. She was recruited by InterNet Services Corporation in Charlotte where she built an events team which managed more than 70 city-wide conventions over a six- year period both domestically and internationally.

The following year JBM launched the annual Savannah Boat Show. Over the past 20 years and with 100 successful consumer shows behind them, the company has remained passionate about the consumer event industry. “I realized early on that bringing consumers and businesses together is my strength and passion,” said Jacqui. I love to build something from scratch and see it grow and take on a life of its own.”

Jacqui is a long-term member of the National Association of Consumer Shows and is the current in-coming President. She is also VP of Communications for the Greenville, SC Professional Women’s Forum board.
