Drawing from more than 20 years of planning experience, Mara has played an integral role in collaborating with executives to design and manage domestic and international events including advisory board and investigator meetings, internal sales and marketing meetings, product launches and coordinating corporate participation in trade shows and conventions.
Mara joined the Bishop-McCann family after managing her own meeting and event planning company for 11 years. Some of Mara’s favorite projects include managing sponsorship events for Motorola, Inc. such as the Olympics and IndyCar races, as well as planning and executing complex events for pharmaceutical and biotech clients.
A self-professed foodie and globe-trotter, experiencing different countries and cultures is what drives Mara every day. Barcelona is one of her favorite cities, but nothing pleases her more than spending time with her relatives in Bavaria, raising a stein of good German beer and partaking in a pretzel (or two).
