Cassie Brown, CSEP
Chief Experience Officer + Owner
As Chief Experience Officer and Owner of TCG Events, Cassie Brown is a known authority in the event planning industry. With more than two decades of experience, Cassie has had the pleasure of coordinating numerous high-profile events for Fortune 500 companies, professional sports teams, and national associations.
With a bachelor’s degree in hotel, restaurant and tourism administration from the University of South Carolina, followed by a master’s degree in tourism administration and event management from The George Washington University, Cassie joined the company in 2002 as a Project Manager. She instantly became instrumental in elevating the firm’s reputation to a national level, and by 2006, was appointed Director of Events. In 2011, after nine years with the company, Cassie bought TCG Events and assumed the role of President and CEO.
Since joining the company, Cassie’s efforts have earned TCG Events several EVIE, Crown, and PICA awards in event, décor, invitation, and program categories. She was also an adjunct professor at Johnson & Wales University, and has taught courses in event management at Central Piedmont Community College. Cassie currently serves on the Board of Directors at McColl Center for Visual Art.
Cassie is recognized for her ability to artfully, and authoritatively, lay out logistical and contingency plans that ensure seamless event production, earning her the affectionate nickname “Sarg.” For Cassie, nothing beats the feeling of delivering a superior client experience that exceeds all possible expectations, but satisfying her obsession with worldly vacations is definitely a close second.
