Sally has been part of the Fairmont family for 7 years and is part of the Master's Program. With style, creativity and a commitment to excellence, Sally Kukla designs and executes events that achieve her clients' goals. From small and intimate gatherings to grand galas and fundraisers, each event is met with enthusiasm and unique ideas to create an experience for each client. A lifelong resident of Phoenix and a graduate of Arizona State University, her 12+ years of experience in this industry, gives her a solid understanding of event design, planning and production. Just as important, she knows when not to settle, when to push back and when to dream even bigger. For one nonprofit organization, she plans an annual event, which brings in $350k. She has planned high profile events honoring two past Presidents! In events, you are faced with different challenges every day and not one day is the same. I believe that people create the workplace and so the other highlight is definitely having the opportunity to work with and learn from so many talented, fun and caring colleagues. In her free time, she enjoys weekend getaways to the beach, shopping, but most importantly being with her husband and two girls. Best known for her energetic laugh, she believes that kindness should be thrown around like confetti. She is one of the most tireless and dedicated people you will meet.
