The C100 is continuing to grow! We're thrilled to announce that we've welcomed an experienced Events Manager to our team. Anastasia Crew will be dedicated to our signature events - 48Hrs in the Valley, CEO Summit, TechWomen Canada, along with providing much needed support around our monthly events like Canadians in Tech Meetups, Valley 101, Funding $eries and our Charter Member dinners.
Anastasia joins us with a lot of experience executing successful industry gatherings, fundraisers, C-level private dinners and speaking engagements, both nationally and internationally. A native Russian, she has been living in the U.S. for over eight years, six of which she has resided in San Francisco. She originally came to the United States as an exchange student and then permanently moved to San Francisco for her MBA. After successfully graduating, she decided to stay and pursue her career organizing events in the Bay Area.
Prior to joining C100 Association, Anastasia spent four years working as an External Affairs and Special Events Coordinator in the Office of the CEO at Apollo Education Group, an S&P 400 corporation based in Phoenix, AZ, that through its subsidiaries owns several for-profit educational institutions worldwide. As a part of the Office of the CEO team, she had great opportunities to execute various high-level exclusive events, including creating a private hospitality and entertainment hub for the Fortune 500 CEO's and VIP guests at Super Bowl XLIX in Phoenix, AZ.
Earlier in her career, Anastasia helped organizing events for College of Business at San Francisco State University and for a futsal club "MFK VIZ-Sinara", based in Yekaterinburg, Russia. She holds a BA in International Relations from Ural Federal University (former known as Ural State University) and an MBA from San Francisco State University.
When she's not planning yet another event, Anastasia loves traveling the world, volunteering for a good cause, learning a new foreign language or burning off some steam in the boxing ring.
"I am very excited to be joining the C100 team as their new Events Manager and look forward to taking their events to a whole new level -- not to mention keeping with the C100 mandate of '50 % Better' every time. I take each event as a challenge and love to see how everything is getting transformed while moving through different event stages. I like to think about each project as a flower seed - the more you water it and take care of it the more it grows and blooms. I think outside of the box and bring a creative and fresh approach to each project while still being very detail-oriented and organized."
In her very first week, Anastasia jumped into one of our signature bi-annual events, 48Hrs in the Valley, and was instrumental to its success. As an organized problem-solver, Anastasia was able to roll up her sleeves with very little information and provide support through the event. We're so excited to begin our journey working with Anastasia and look forward to a full year of events ahead!
