Senior Event Director
The Castle Group, Senior Event Director, Callie Cleary

Event planning has been a life-long passion for me, and I knew from a young age I wanted to pursue a career in events. I began volunteering and interning at events in my teens and over the past 15+ years have grown my experience at Castle creating events from corporate meetings and conferences to incentives, fundraisers, and galas in destinations all over the world from at home in Boston to Monte Carlo, Monaco and Maui, Hawaii.

From this experience, I understand what it takes to plan and execute a successful event for our clients — a creative, hard-working team with a passion and love for event planning – and that’s just what we have! As an Event Director at Castle, I manage project teams, client accounts and varying aspects of the event planning process. I love being involved from start to finish so I can experience a client’s vision coming to life. I enjoy guiding our project teams through the planning process – working collaboratively together to deliver the best possible service and event results for our clients. And in turn, seeing our clients happy is one of the most gratifying aspects of my job.

I am a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) and enjoy keeping up with industry trends and expanding my knowledge by participating in networking events and educational opportunities from varying hotel groups and industry organizations. When I’m not planning events – for Castle or for fun – I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, trying new restaurants, baking delicious treats, and traveling the world.
