Meet The Team Monday: Meet Event Manager, Melissa Garretson

Melissa GarretsonMeet one of our marvelous Event Managers, Melissa Garretson.

Melissa has been with Hyatt for the last 11 years, and we are lucky enough to say that it has been at our property the entire time! She spent two years as the Director of Outlets, an additional three years as a Catering Manager, and has been an Event Manager for the past six and a half years. Her passion for the hospitality industry is rooted back to when she worked in a restaurant, from the age of fifteen; Melissa loved the fun atmosphere of the restaurant floor, and wanted to branch out into different aspects of hospitality, and was drawn in by the idea of working in Events.

A Chicago native, there is so much that Melissa loves about the city, whether it be the lakefront; the museums; the restaurants, or walking around the great neighborhoods. Melissa’s children are the most important thing in the world to her, and everything that she does is for them. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family, especially playing with her kids, and going out to restaurants with her husband.

Melissa’s fun personality, along with the valuable insight that she has into the hospitality industry, ensures that she provides a memorable experience for all of her clients. She is a true benefit to our team here, and we are extremely glad to have her at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place.
