Bridget Fox

Certified Meeting Planner

ST. PAUL, Minn., August 15, 2017 --- Bridget Fox, a 10-year veteran of Ewald Consulting’s event planning department, has received her Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) credentials from the Events Industry Council. The CMP designation is a globally-recognized badge of excellence in the meeting, convention, exhibition and event industry.

Working to attain the 25 credits for over a year, Fox has become the latest Ewald Consulting employee to achieve the credential. The Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) program was launched in 1985 to enhance the knowledge and performance of meeting professionals, promote the status and credibility of the meeting profession, and advance uniform standards of practice.

“I could not be more proud of Bridget for attaining this honor,” said Julie Cygan Diamond, Ewald Consulting’s vice president of meeting and event management. “Anyone who knows Bridget and her hard-working style is not surprised to see her earn CMP credentials. She is a shining star in this industry.”

Fox will bring the skills and knowledge attained through the rigorous program to her clients, which include the Association of Staff Physician Recruiters, the Association Workplace Investigators, the Minnesota Association of County Officers, the Minnesota Defense Lawyers Association and the Minnesota Medical Group Management Association. She has successfully managed major client events all throughout Minnesota and the surrounding region as well as in far-flung sites such as San Diego, New Orleans, Montreal, Vienna and Singapore.

“Becoming a Certified Meeting Planner has been important to me because it will allow me to better serve our clients, and serve as a resource to my colleagues,” said Fox, who has an economics and management degree from the University of Minnesota and joined Ewald Consulting in 2007. “Continuing to grow and better myself has been a central value of mine, and I am excited about what is next for me and our team.”
