Meet Kari Derryberry


My passion for event design and hospitality began after following my performing dreams to New York City. In between auditions and theater gigs, I worked for West Side Hospitality, planning and executing corporate events, as well as managing the restaurant.

After moving to Columbus to be closer to family, I received the tremendous opportunity to hone my talents with Cameron Mitchell Premier Events. Before becoming an Executive Team member and General Manager, I experienced many roles.

I love creating experiences and leaving lasting impressions.

During my eleven-year adventure with the team, I had the unique pleasure not only to produce exclusive events, weddings and sports tournaments, but to also cultivate my hospitality management skills.

I also focused on training and development for our managers and associates, ran our internship program with The Ohio State University, supported sales and profitability, oversaw daily operations, and lead culture activities and community awareness initiatives.

I love creating experiences and leaving lasting impressions. I’m blessed to be able to use my talents in such a fun and creative way!

I reside in Dublin, OH with my husband and two fun-loving stepdaughters.
