Brittney Derrick, CPCE has been in the Charlotte event industry for over 10 years.
Born and raised in New York, Brittney moved to Charlotte in 2004 to attend Johnson & Wales University Charlotte as part of the inaugural class. She graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor’s in International Hotel & Tourism Management and a concentration in Event Management.
Brittney started her event career at Charlotte City Club where she had the opportunity to work with many coveted clients and events including the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
Most recently she was the Director of Sales & Events at the highly esteemed Duke Mansion, a historic inn and meeting place known for their luxury wedding and top tier southern hospitality.
In late 2021, Brittney decided to take a step back and fell into an entrepreneurship role via freelance and contract event work. At the start of 2022, Tara & Brittney realized they had a good thing going and Brittney came on board fulltime to assist Tara in business development and marketing.
She currently lives in Charlotte with her partner, Carl, teenage daughter Brylie, and 2 pups, Arizona & Liam. She loves to travel, vegan food adventures, and binging crime documentaries.
