Jane Hathaway

While earning her degree in Communication Studies, at Northwestern University, Jane completed an internship in Public Relations at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. It was during this internship she discovered her passion for creating and coordinating events.

After several years working in catering and convention services for Hyatt Hotels, in multiple locations, she returned to Chicago where she took on the positions of Special Events Director and Catering Director for two city dining clubs.

Before her decision to launch More Than Meetings, in 1995, Jane spent a few more years heading the sales and marketing operations for a party rental business as well as earning her Master Hotel Supplier certification. This additional experience as a supplier to the hotels, caterers and planners provides her with yet another perspective into the hospitality industry which she offers to you via More Than Meetings.

Having worked in hotels, private clubs and as a supplier to the hospitality industry, Jane is aptly suited to represent clients while fully understanding and appreciating the position of the hotel or vendor. Her keen eye for details, strong sense of ethics and dedication to perfection will put your events and meetings over the top!
