Contact STACY SCHNETZKA
Stacy's passion for music and live shows was solidified after seeing her first big concert...Duran Duran in the 80's (the BEST decade of music!). After her plans of marrying their bass player (John Taylor) didn't pan out, she earned her B.S. in Economics from VCU in Richmond, VA, moved to Atlanta and entered the Corporate world. After spending 20 years as a Sales & Marketing Executive for a large global chemical company, she left Corporate life (i.e., business suits) and pursued her career path with ECE. Stacy splits her time between the Richmond/Charlottesville offices, but is often on the road meeting with clients and touring the stunning venues in VA/MD/WV.
The most valuable trait she possesses is her ability to truly listen to her clients and guide them to the perfect entertainment. The client consultation is her favorite part of the process. From the first phone call until after the event is successfully produced, you can rely on her for creative ideas and to ensure the process runs smoothly. Her professional experience provides her with a unique insight into the Corporate Client's needs. From her years attending numerous Conferences/Retreats/Sales Meetings/Award Galas, she understands the goals of the events and will share ideas on how to make these events exciting and memorable. That same consultative approach is taken with all of her clients. Whether you're planning a Wedding, Social, Corporate, Festival, University, or Fundraising event, you can rely on her to assist you in creating an unforgettable experience.
Volunteering is an important aspect of her life, both to develop professionally and invest back into the local community. Stacy is currently serving on the Richmond NACE Board of Directors as Secretary/Director of Communications. Her time as a NACE member has enhanced her professional relationships and industry knowledge profoundly. In her personal time, she is invested as a 'Big Sister' with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Greater VA. She also is certified as a 'Listening Companion' for Alzheimer's/Dementia residents, as part of the 'Music & Memory' program at a local care facility. The connection of music to memory is undeniable, which brings another dimension to her work. She considers herself fortunate to have found a career that allows her to be a part of the best celebrations of her clients' lives.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Now that you know a bit more about me, I'd love to learn more about how I may be of help to you! Let's chat soon to start brainstorming entertainment ideas. The planning process may feel overwhelming at times, so I'm here to consult with you and guide you through a stress-free event. Feel free to call/email/text anytime: I prefer the old-school phone call approach, but if you want to contact me through social media, follow me on Instagram (@eastcoaststacy). Cheers!
