Steve Baker's Summary

I am an accomplished Executive Producer whose leadership and experience provides the superior results you require, every time. My work experience represents a broad range of organizations including Fortune 500 companies (Walt Disney Company) and respected national nonprofit arts organizations (National Endowment for the Arts, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Western Arts Alliance). My work is characterized by strategic long term planning and attention to detail that keeps projects sharply focused, on point and stress free. As a project manager I am known for my ability to consistently deliver on-budget performance that keeps the bottom line firmly in hand.

I have extensive experience in both small and large scale event production as well as large scale conference/trade show planning. I am resourceful, tech savvy and remain calm under pressure quickly solving problems with minimal disruption. Uncompromising customer service is the foundation of my work ethic. I believe in taking the time to develop the kind of relationships that secure the fiscal bottom line and that ensure top performance with vendors, partners and service providers.

I create an atmosphere of trust and confidence that allows my clients to detach from ground level operations and remain focused on their mission. My productions have been widely recognized for their excellence and I am passionate about achieving winning results.

Specific strengths include: project management, large scale event production, trade show management, contract negotiations, partner relations, creative problem solving, event design and management, artist relations, logistics, budget administration, talent contracting.
