Event Co-Chair

Gabrielle "Gabby" Mourino, CPCE

Say hello to Gabrielle “Gabby” Mourino, Senior Account Manager and Relationship Rockstar with Imprint Events Group. A 12-year veteran in the world of events and graduate of the Rosen College of Hospitality Management with a degree in Event Management, Gabby loves to share her passion for custom entertainment and has a keen eye for design. Because of her longevity in the industry and passion for continuous learning, she hasn’t met a problem that she can’t find the creative solution for! As a Certified Professional in Catering and Events (CPCE), her calm demeaner and warm personality will make you feel as if you’ve known her for years. When not selling event dreams, she’s visiting new destinations, enjoying a good happy hour (ask her for her local recommendations), and finding adventure in everyday life!
