Kristie Marie Hall - Director, Global Accounts
Kristie Hall joined HelmsBriscoe as Manager, Global Accounts in 2009. Currently based in Belgium, she supports Clients with their event searches around the world. Kristie has a global viewpoint, as she has visited and worked in more than 40 countries and lived in various cities in the USA, as well as London, Istanbul, Amsterdam, Cameroon, and now Brussels. This broad history provides her a unique framework for understanding her Clients’ distinct needs and is integral to her successful negotiations with suppliers.
Kristie moved to Europe in 2000 as a hotel negotiator for a tour operator and later launched her own events company, working with several Dutch corporations and non-profits. After many years of working on successful events, she was hired by Nike EMEA to serve as Operations Manager for their Event Management and Travel Services team. While there, she was charged with developing a meetings management policy and driving cost savings within their events. During her time with Nike EMEA, Kristie used the services of HelmsBriscoe Associates whose dedication and integrity convinced her of the value of using HelmsBriscoe’s convenient support. Soon thereafter, she decided to expand her own experience with the unrivalled tools and information network offered to HelmsBriscoe team members, and joined as a Meetings and Events Consultant. Kristie’s unique understanding of her Clients’ goals and objectives makes the labor-intensive task of site selection seem effortless, freeing up their time for other important priorities to make every meeting a success. Moreover, her honest and dedicated approach, attention to detail, and event planner experience make her an asset to her Clients.
