CHICAGONovember 16, 2022 – BCD Meetings & Events (BCD M&E), world leaders in corporate meetings and events, have named Melissa Moten as VP, NORAM for The Collective, BCD M&E’s in-house creative agency offering brand experiences that go beyond the traditional event.

Having held various positions in the industry, including with Allied PRA, Starwood Hotels and most recently BartonG, Moten brings a solid background in national and international events across sales and operations.

“As an industry leader, Melissa is a strong asset to The Collective,” said Charlene Rabideau, BCD M&E’s SVP & Managing Director, NORAM. “Her ability to listen to customer needs and develop full-experience solutions around event design will only strengthen our experienced leadership team.”

The Collective is a brand-centric, consultative and creative group within BCD M&E that offers customers brand and experiential solution design. It offers the agility and local nuance of a niche creative agency but is backed by the power of a global organization—its buying power, scope and reach.
