Courtney Mahony

Account Executive, Black Flower Agency 

1. How long have you worked at Black Flower Agency, and what do you do?   

I actually just started here in January. It’s my first full-time job in the events industry since working part-time in college. I’m an account executive, so I assist on anything that I’m needed on, whether that’s placing orders, coordinating events spaces, or preparing documents. 

2. Why did you want to get into the events industry?  

After doing several internships in college, I knew that I wanted to eventually work for an events company, and I absolutely love being here. Every day is different and it’s fast-paced, so it’s never boring!  I really love seeing the payoff after months of work on a single event. It’s so satisfying to see everything come together at the end! 

3. What are the coolest events you’ve gotten to work on so far?  

I just got back from the Grammys last week, and I’m going to Coachella next week! For the Grammys, we organized a pre-reception for American Express cardholders outside of the venue. For Coachella, we’re setting up the luxury tent for our client, and we will be on site to make sure that everything comes together and all of our cardholders have a great time. 

Another awesome experience I’ve had so far was working on a presentation with the fashion designer Joseph Altuzarra. We coordinated a meet-and-greet at his flagship store where cardholders could shop and get to hear from both the designer himself and the CEO of his company about the thought process that went into designing the line.  

4. What do you do in your free time? 

One of the things I really enjoy doing is yoga. I also love going on walks around New York City. I’ve lived here a few years but every walk you can find something new, which is one of the things I love about living here.  On Sundays, one of my favorite things to do is read a good book outside, especially once the weather is nice. 

5. What book are you reading right now?  

I really like memoirs! I’m reading Lady in Waiting right now, by Anne Glenconner, who was lady in waiting for Princess Margaret (The queen’s sister). Her life experiences are so unique, so it’s fascinating to hear all of the stories that she has from her time with the royal family.
