Vicky Choy CEO and Event Planner After nearly a decade in the corporate world, Vicky founded Event Accomplished in 2004 when she was looking for a different career where she could work closely with her clients, make an impact, and feel relatively quickly the sense of accomplishment when all your hard work has come together. Vicky’s brother thinks that she has landed the perfect job that uses her innate ability to bring order to chaos. Her prior business experiences prepared her well for event planning. In her last position, she was a proposal manager for $1 billion in prospective work, managing all aspects from bid strategy to staff coordination to proposal production, requiring a combination of creativity, attention to detail, customer understanding, business savvy, and ability to work under extremely stressful conditions. Prior to that, she managed project schedules and costs on engineering and construction projects worldwide. She holds a Masters degree in Business Administration with a concentration in entrepreneurship/small business and event management from the George Washington University and a Bachelors degree in engineering from the University of Pennsylvania. Born in Hong Kong and raised in New York, she has lived in the Washington, DC area since 1996 and currently residing in Arlington, Virginia with her husband John and two cats Rocky and Andy.
