Venues Today, an international trade publication, recently recognized Cyndee Pennington, General Manager and Southeast Regional Director of Live Entertainment for SMG, as a nominee for the Women of Influence award. This nomination and award is strictly decided by industry peer votes. Pennington was nominated for her tireless dedication to the Pensacola Civic Center since opening its doors in 1985.
"It is an unbelievable honor just to be nominated with some of the most prominent women in an industry that I love so much," stated Pennington.
While hosting some of the largest touring acts throughout the years, Pennington has played an invaluable role by successfully managing almost 600 events just in 2011.
Pennington started on the ground level and has worked her way up to become one of the most experienced facility managers in SMG's arsenal leading them to three contract renewals since SMG became the management company in 2001.
Venues Today will be featuring the Women of Influence Class of 2012 winners in their July issue.
