Laura Barnum
Strategic Account Manager

Being at Bishop-McCann since 2013, Laura Barnum has progressed through all roles that support the life cycle of events. Starting as a program coordinator, advancing to program manager, and now as a strategic account manager, Laura has a cohesive outlook on what it takes to plan a successful event. She has a track record of building positive client relationships while fostering strong internal teams and advocating for anyone she works with. She’s known for her calm demeanor and ability to adapt, which keeps everything on track in times of chaos. Laura finds her job fulfilling as each project brings new challenges and opportunities to innovate and learn. 
In her free time, Laura spends quality time with her husband, son, and their crazy Siberian Huskey, Fiona. She also enjoys traveling to new places with friends and family. When at home, she likes to spend weekends at the lake and explore the never-ending list of Chicago’s restaurants and breweries.
