Hailing from Michigan, but based in DC since early 2005, Stirrett’s experience in the event world is as diverse as the locations in which she has honed her talents. While Rebecca has now joined the Showcall Team full-time, she in fact has been part of the team on and off for 9 years, beginning by serving as Showcall's Manager of Event Operations & Protocol at the US Pavilion at the World Exposition in Aichi, Japan. Rebecca has also served in a variety of critical roles for Showcall on a numbers of other notable events including the White House Conference on Helping America's Youth, Presidential Inaugurations, The George W. Bush Library Dedication and the JFK 50th Anniversary.
Outside of Showcall, Rebecca kept very busy developing her skills set, as she worked in event operations and provided logistical support for the Chartwell Education Group and Akinscrisp Public Strategies. Most recently, Rebecca spent 5 years refining her large event and venue management skills by working at Events DC as a Senior Events Manager. At Events DC, Rebecca managed a myriad of events ranging in size from 1,000 to 20,000 in three unique venues: RFK Stadium, the DC Armory and RFK Festival Grounds (comprising more than 100 acres of event space). It as during her time at Events DC that Rebecca became an expert on large-format, outdoor events as she managed a large number of premiere events including Nike World Basketball Festival, the USO Military Bowl, AT&T Nation's Football Classic, Dayglow/Life In Color, the Marine Corps Marathon Health and Fitness Expo, the DC101 Chili Cookoff and DC United Games.
"I cannot describe how excited we are to have Rebecca on board! She is a natural fit with our corporate culture given her professionalism and sense of commitment. Further, she brings a set of skills that rounds out our team perfectly, given how our event portfolio has evolved," says Ajay R. Patil, president, Showcall, Inc.
Stirrett will focus her activities on managing accounts and project managing events on a global basis for Showcall.
Showcall Inc. was founded in 2001 by Ajay R. Patil and A. Blayne Candy. Since that time, Showcall has produced events on an international basis for Papal Visits, Summits, White House Conferences, Fortune 100 companies, associations, and national entertainment.
