Senior Sales Manager
Kristyn “Syd” Hancock
Kristyn, also known as “Syd” around the office, has worn many hats in the event planning world since she started as an Event Coordinator fresh out of University. After moving to Utah from Vancouver, British Columbia, she took on the role of Global Events Manager and planned events all over the world. From there, Kristyn went on to work as a Catering Sales Manager for Salt Lake City’s only 4 diamond hotel, and then entered the nonprofit world and managed their events, communications and marketing. She has worked as an event contractor and Travel Director, which has taken her all over the Caribbean Sea and fed her love of travel. Kristyn loves getting to know people and helping them, which assists in her sales role with Summit Events.
Outside of Summit Events, Kristyn loves biking, hiking and skiing with her 3 kids and husband. She also loves reading, cooking and entertaining and she’ll choose those things over anything else if given the opportunity.
What I Love About Utah: Funeral potatoes and green jello! Also – that I can ski in the morning and mountain bike in the afternoon every spring.
