40 Under 40: Jason Sick, Red Velvet Events

By Connect Staff, February 28, 2017

Jason Sick, 35, works in Austin, Texas, as program manager at Red Velvet Events. As a 2017 40 Under 40 honoree, Sick discusses his passion for the events industry

What I do: I partner with corporate clients to plan and execute their meetings, special events and destination management needs across the United States.

How I got here: My personal history with event planning goes back to my childhood working with my mother in her event decor business. After finishing graduate school, I started my career planning events at The University of Texas at Austin for eight years. I then took the leap from educational events to corporate events and landed my dream job with Red Velvet Events.

My greatest career accomplishment: I was told by a client who has decades of experience planning events for a major U.S. corporation that we were the best DMC she has ever worked with. Nothing makes me prouder than knowing I have given my clients a level of service that exceeds their expectations.
