Member Spotlight - Todd Thomas

By: MPISTL | May 4, 2022

ToddThomasJoin us in celebrating That One Guy, Todd Thomas, for his much deserved MPI St. Louis Member Spotlight! Todd has been an active and valuable member of our Chapter and a notable pillar of Meetings and Events in St. Louis for over 25 years. Todd's all about working hard and having a whole lot of fun. If you ask him, that's the ultimate key to success.

Most will recognize Todd for his work with the St. Louis Cardinals as their In-Game Emcee, where he has been serving up good times for fans since 1997. However, Todd wears many hats. He has also owned and operated Porta Party DJs since 1996, serving as an Emcee and DJ for a variety of corporate and private events. Outside of the events industry, Todd continues to stir up fun with his cooking show, "Todd's in My Kitchen." And just within the last year, Todd has become a Realtor with Keller Williams Southwest! But wait, there's more! Todd invented, holds the patent for, and is an owner of the FanCanHand. Go look it up right now; it is pure genius! Throughout his many successful professional endeavors, Todd has always valued and made it his mission to give everyone the experience of a lifetime.

Within our Chapter, Todd regularly supports our Special Events Committee and often offers his services as Emcee and DJ for our events. Todd plans to continue his involvement as a volunteer for our Chapter, and hopes to serve as a Committee Chair in the future. For Todd, being part of MPI is all about the networking. He finds this to be an invaluable benefit of membership. Making connections and forming great relationships with other professionals in our industry supports the growth of meetings and events across the St. Louis Area and beyond. 

ToddThomas-FamilyTodd and his wife Cheri have three wonderful children: Tyler, Sydney and Austin. Todd is proud to be married to a true St. Louisan and is an honorary one himself, having lived in St. Louis for over half of his life. Along with his family, Todd enjoys spending time at their cabin on the lake. He uses his spare time to unwind and unplug so that he can bring his “life of the party” personality to each of his events.

He may be That One Guy to the rest of St. Louis, but we are proud to have Todd Thomas as part of our Chapter. Congratulations, again, Todd! We can't thank you enough for your continued contributions to MPI.
