Sales & Operations Manager
With more than 15 years of event planning and operations experience, all of our Austin clients will want Sales & Operation Manager Pat Vires on their team. Pat’s energy and enthusiasm for event planning and travel have fueled her successful career and eventually led her to join RMC’s Austin, TX office in 2019. Pat actually began her relationship with RMC in 2008 when she worked with RMC as a client. Since then she has worked for a major corporation planning various meetings, conferences and incentive trips, both domestically and internationally. She was responsible for planning and executing as many as 30 corporate events annually, managing all elements including guest registration, lodging, transportation, and food and beverage – all while maintaining the budget and overseeing on-site staff and third-party vendors. Pat has been assigned to some impressive projects as well. As a Travel Director she led groups to all of the big NCAA Football Bowl Games, including the Rose Bowl, Orange Bowl, and the CFP National Championship Game. She has also led incentive travel groups to world-class destinations like Aspen, CO and Los Cabos, Mexico.
Pat’s work life is glamorous and fast-paced but when she is not working, she enjoys the opportunity to slow down. In her free time, she enjoys volunteering, scrapbooking and exploring new places. She hopes to finish her checklist of US states visited and make it to the Dakotas, Iowa and West Virginia soon.
