Jodi Whitlock (Senior Event Producer)
Jodi began working for CEI as a freelance staff in 1994, when she first moved to Chicago. She honed her skills at Chicago’s top tourist attractions. First as a server at Ed Debevic’s (that’s right, Cookie!) and then as the Entertainment Talent Manager at Navy Pier, where she assisted in the execution of such memorable events like Captain Fear’s Haunted Ship and the inaugural Winter WonderFest. Jodi considers herself very lucky to have worked with some of the top talent in Chicago while at Navy Pier.
In 2004, Jodi joined CEI full time as an Event Coordinator. Since then, she has taken on many roles – like Casino Queen and VP of HR. Her current title, Senior Event Producer, is her favorite so far. Jodi enjoys working with her clients to create memorable and seamless events. Her passion lies in developing new and exciting programs for her clients, working with the awesome CEI freelance staff and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. Or wine.
