Craftbox Agency is expanding our tool kit – Pati Shampton joins our team

July 22, 2014

Craftbox is pleased to announce that Pati Shampton joined our posse of creative conspirators in June. She has over 13 years of combined experience as a Project Manager and Event Planner. Pati currently serves as Executive Director of Chula League, Project Director of Cherrywood Art Fair 2014 and is an active leader in the Lamar Middle School Orchestra Booster Club. Pati will assist Craftbox with day-to-day operations and serve as Event Planner.

“Pati approached me two years ago about getting back into the Event Planning business and I’m thrilled she did. She has been one of my ‘special agents’ on some fun yet challenging events. She is my kind of engaged and dedicated ‘get things done’ girl. We work fabulously together and I’m thrilled she is officially joining Craftbox Agency” says Celeste Quesada, founder.

Pati has a strong background in customer service, team building, vendor management & strategic and production planning. She is a stickler for details and is looking forward to working with Craftbox clients to execute stunning and memorable events, galas, fundraisers, weddings, corporate meetings and conferences.

Pati and Celeste worked together on such events as The Texas Film Awards (2013, 2014), SIMS Foundation ‘Heart of the City’ (2014) and ‘Femmes for SIMS’ Gala (2013) and The Cherrywood Art Fair (2012, 2013, 2014).

“Celeste and Pati are the creative, hardworking power-house behind the Craftbox Agency. I’ve had the pleasure of working with them on two very different projects and both times felt so taken care of. Craftbox events have a certain sparkle, that’s unmistakable. Every moment of a Craftbox event is special, unexpected and personal. I love the Craftbox vibe and aesthetic- but what I respect most is their work ethic. It’s rare to meet such a hard working, happy team. It’s amazing to be around them and inspiring to watch them work. I hope to work with them again as soon as I can.” — Lila Tewnenbown, Marketing Manager, Events & Promotions at Outbrain

The two have have been friends for over twenty years and have a penchant for Pinterest, wine, tequila, live music and their awesome families.

The ladies – just chillin’.
