LEADERSHIP

Allison Hershberger

President & CEO

After years in the event industry in several markets (corporate, non-profit, venues, catering and private events), Allison wanted more, so in 2017 she jumped at the chance to become the new owner of PPPEG.  She saw it as an opportunity to give amazing creative minds an amazing place to work, and sometimes play—and to provide, top-notch event production, design and decor services to the growing St. Louis market.  

 

Allison provides thought leadership on all PPEPG accounts and plays a lead role in pushing the creative envelope with a solution-driven approach to every project. 

 

She is always eager to get her hands dirty, and isn’t one to hide behind her CEO title. She’s approachable, helps out wherever needed and encourages everyone to bring their ideas to the table no matter what position they hold. Through all the brainstorming sessions and late nights, Allison’s there to push everyone towards their full potential - and to ensure everyone has a great time doing it!
