Ariel Kerrigan

Event Producer

Ariel is from Bergen County, NJ, right outside of New York City. She graduated from the University of Alabama (Roll tide!) in 2017 where she studied Hospitality Management with a concentration in Event Planning. From there, Ariel worked at the Plaza Hotel in NYC. After some time, she wanted to try something new, catalyzing her move to Connecticut where she managed a full service event production company that offered catering, stationary needs, florals, and event design. Missing the hustle of Manhattan, Ariel bounced back across the water to NYC where she managed a venue on 5th Avenue. Looking for growth, change and a challenge, she took a chance and came to HMR and Chicago. She’s loving the Windy City, and can’t see what adventures come next!
