Hi everyone!!! My name is Katlyn Lillis, and I am the Development Manager at Elite Events & Tickets. Let me tell you all a little about me. I have been working at Elite since January 2018. That is 2.5 years! Weird to think I have been here that long. I like to travel and I plan to do some more traveling once Corona dies down or if they find a cure. I love to go to concerts. I have been to a bunch!!! A few artists I have seen are Miley Cyrus, Lady A, Luke Combs, Bebe Rexha, and 5SOS. Any chance I get to hang out with my family and friends I will as I always enjoy spending time with them.
A little background on our fearless leaders.
Kevin McKerley, CEO and Owner, began Elite Events in 2011 by chance. He would take ONE WEEK vacation with his colleagues to park cars and sell hotdogs just down from the Augusta National. In 2011, he decided to bring on a long time family friend, Katelin Hendricks, and rent a van. They would transport patrons to and from the National. From there Elite Events was born.
In 2014, Kevin’s wife, Olivia, left her long time career of teaching and embarked on a new journey as a travel agent specializing in Disney destinations. She worked as an agent for a reputable agency for two years, and in 2016, Olivia decided to bring the travel industry to Elite thus merging events and travel. She has since helped our travel agency soar along with earning accolades from our travel suppliers with a team of 16 travel agents operating under Elite Magical Travel!
In addition, 2016 was the year that Kevin struck gold bringing long time Master’s home renter, Aaron Fera, in to be our ticket guru. Aaron has been teaching for many years and would buy and sell tickets to numerous shows, concerts, and events as a side gig. With the collaboration of Kevin’s financial smarts and Aaron’s knowledge of the ticket world Elite Events became ELITE EVENTS & TICKETS!!!
