It’s Dufour & Co’s 10th Anniversary!

Our first ten years have been more successful and gratifying than I had hoped or envisioned, and I’m deeply grateful to each of you for your support.  Our team has earned a reputation for creating unique and innovative events, executed flawlessly. We are honored to have produced hundreds of events in cities across the country for a growing roster of clients, and have earned industry-wide recognition along the way.

The breadth and diversity of Dufour & Co’s work has grown exponentially since we began. We have produced exceptional, distinctive experiences, from intimate dinners for high level international guests, to one of the largest events in the history of the National Mall.  Building on an initial vision of partnership with non-profit organizations such as Georgetown Pediatrics and America Abroad Media, the quality of our work positioned us to serve leading corporate brands, such as Target, L’Oréal and Comcast NBC Universal, as well as government clients, including the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution.

As President & Creative Director, I am proud to continue to lead the best and most experienced team in the business. To kick off our year-long celebration, I would like to announce a few updates:

Patricia Anderson takes on a new role as Executive Producer and Chief Operating Officer.  Elissa Bernius will now act as Executive Producer and Senior Vice President. Dave Kidney has also been promoted to Senior Vice President.  Katie Kenney has been promoted to Production Coordinator and Nate Rohnke continues in his role as Director of Production. Megan Finnegan, previously of Occasions Caterers, has joined the Dufour team as a Senior Producer.

On behalf of the entire team, I want to thank you - our clients, friends and vendors - for your continued support and partnership.  We could not have done it without you!  As we look forward to continued growth and success in the years ahead, we invite you to join the celebration by following our 10th Anniversary on social media using the hashtag #Du4at10.
