BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, February 15, 2024 / — Courtney Church, and Jill Tate, Co-CEOs of Corinthian Events, one of Boston’s leading event planning companies, today announced a succession plan that involves selling the 24-year-old company to three longtime employees: Jennifer Logan, Tamara O’Malley and Jamie Hellesen. While details of the sale are confidential, the three have worked for Corinthian Events for more than 35 years combined and are expected take full ownership of the company by January 2027.

“Jamie, Tamara and I have been working together for more than 10 years and have built a strong relationship grounded in hard work, mutual respect, and trust,” said Jennifer Logan, Managing Partner at Corinthian Events. “We’re so lucky and honored to be able to shepherd Corinthian Events into the future. I speak for us all when I say that with Jill and Courtney’s guidance over the next few years, we’re fully confident that our company will continue to grow and thrive.”

While many event planning companies across the country were forced to close their doors post pandemic, Corinthian Events did a fast and major pivot by developing successful virtual meetings and events well ahead of their competition gaining valuable traction that enabled them to rebound stronger than ever in the years that followed. In fact, during the pandemic, when most businesses were stalled, the company acquired Newport Hospitality to expand their reach across New England for clients seeking exceptional corporate and specialty events.

“I am honored to be entrusted with the future of Corinthian Events,” noted Managing Partner Tamara O’Malley. “We strive for the highest level of hospitality, creativity, and memorable moments, and I’m excited for our future.”

The company serves a wide range of national, regional and New England-based clients including Keolis, EMD Serono, Stifel, Volvo, ADP, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts, MIT, Ireland Funds, Sensata and many more.

“Having been in the hospitality industry for more than two decades, continuing the legacy of a 24-year-old successful event planning company is a tremendous honor,” said Jamie Hellesen, General Manager at Corinthian Events. “Thanks to the leadership and forward thinking of Jill and Courtney, I’m excited to start this next chapter with Tamara and Jenni. Our similarities and differences are strengths when we’re together,” she added.

“If you believe in yourself and have great partners, anything is possible,” said Jill Tate, Co-CEO. “I could never have imagined that the company we started from scratch would achieve such incredible success. Courtney and I agree that leaving it in the hands of these three talented women will ensure our legacy endures,” she said.
