Ann, a Special Events Coordinator, comes from a long line of professional event planners. Her great grandfather, Irvin “Lampshade” Kisco was the first person to use free booze as a gimmick to get people excited about corporate events. Her grandmother, Laura Kisco, is known as the mother of the modern kegstand, and her father William was the first to incorporate karaoke into a non-Asian corporate function. Ann is proud to be part of such a rich heritage, and keeps the traditions alive today.
“My events are tasteful affairs where it’s acceptable, even encouraged, to get blotto with your colleagues,” Ann said, “I’m talking three sheets to the wind, make out with your assistant, throw up in a cab BLOTTO.” To underscore her point, Ann made the thumb and pinky “drinky-drinky” gesture. She was quick to note that she was not involved with the dry and decidedly unsuccessful Corporate Prom. When not designing and executing events for the Company, Ann enjoys training for and participating in the underground sport of competitive breath-holding.
