Stephanie Sadri
Manager, Global Accounts

Stephanie joined the hospitality industry at a young age. She began in restaurants and evolved into the event and catering world. Stephanie’s first Sales and Catering management role was at Invesco Field. Not only did she work like a horse on Bronco’s game days, but she planned all of their private events and worked on a little event you may have heard of, the Democratic National Convention. After leaving Invesco, she went on to work at several fantastic venues, the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, the Oxford Hotel and The Curtis Hotel. Her eclectic well rounded experience has made her an expert in many facets of the industry and is currently a Global Accounts Manager with HelmsBriscoe.

A member of MPI since 2013, Stephanie is entering her 5th year on the Board of Directors. Her previous roles had her involved with the Golf Tournament, Auction, Education and Communications.

Here are few things you will learn about Stephanie if you ever have the pleasure of working with her:

  1. Her husband is a diehard University of Kansas Jayhawk, so she has adopted the Rock Chalk mantra since denying it was futile
  2. Be careful when opening your desk drawers because she probably hid something in there with the intention of terrifying you. She will claim total innocence and blame it on someone else, but we all know that she did it
  3. If you need to brighten your day, just check Stephanie’s Facebook page because she probably updated it in the last few minutes with an adorable photo of her son Noah, daughter Emma or fur baby Daisy.
  4. She is always available for cooking advice since she is likely preparing a gourmet meal for her husband and children that evening. Unfortunately, she rarely shares leftovers with her coworkers
  5. Don’t waste movie quotes on her, because there is a 90% chance she has never seen or heard of the movie you are attempting to quote

Since then, she has graduated with a degree in Hospitality, Tourism, and Events from Metropolitan State University. Nikki began her adult career with Marriott International, before moving to the planner side with Kinsley Meetings and her current role with Arrow Electronics. Nikki is currently in her fourth year on the MPIRMC Board of Directors. She has been honored as one of Smart Meetings Magazine’s 2021 Smart Women in Meetings Industry Leader and Colorado Meetings + Events 2019 Up-And-Coming Meeting Professional. Outside of work, she loves to enjoy all of the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer, travel often, and drink great wine.
