Muncie, Indiana’s own Christine Conrad is the Director of Corporate Services at Creative Visions. She manages all aspects of the office to include accounting, human resource management and recruiting/onboarding of new hires. Ensuring that company polices are clear, Christine is also a close liaison for vendors and clients.
While new to the events industry, 20 years of marketing research project and operations management have prepared her for our fast-paced environment. Christine’s skill set includes cross-functional team building and leadership, long-range planning and high-growth entrepreneurial organizations. She’s a huge fan of efficiency, great communication skills, problem-solving abilities and creating/supporting a positive company culture is a passion as well.
A love of experiencing different cultures has led Christine to over 30 (!) countries, including a trip to the Olympics and a visit behind the Iron Curtain—she was a “professional” exchange student in high school and college. Hobbies include singing, reading, college football and basketball (especially a certain light blue team) and being in, on, or near water. She has beheld the power of cheese, her favorite food, and used to be fluent in Spanish–but alas, must now muddle through that as well as German.
Where inspiration is concerned, family is everything to Christine—her parents inspire her to be a better daughter, her husband inspires her to be a better partner, and two kids inspire her to be a better mom. In a nod to one of the best shows on TV right now, her superhero selection is the Flash—she loves to travel abroad but abhors the long flights. Running on water would solve that, no?
