Maria drives Eventsy’s overall strategic vision and event coordination, while overseeing all facets of the company’s operations. Previously Maria worked at Fortune 500 companies ranging from ABC and NBC Networks to Goldman, Sachs & Co. Although her job roles varied, she always brought her love for event planning and people into each of these work places. It was during her time at Goldman Sachs that triggered the idea of a company that would serve as a social, personal, and business networking gateway for like-minded and busy professionals. Maria found herself planning solo vacations and individual weekend plans for her amazing co-workers that were simply too busy to sustain any form of a consistent social life. Maria soon came to the realization that what society really lacked was in fact a screen-free and pain-free social and business networking solution and BAM – Eventsy was born!
