Greetings to Chris

Blog Comments Off on Greetings to Chris

My name is Christopher Grieve and my role is the Marketing Assistant and Junior Safety Coordinator at Made in the Shade. I love my job at Made in the Shade. Over the last year of my employment here, I have come to love the event planning industry. Given my duties, one might not realize how the two are intertwined.

At Made in the Shade, my marketing role overlaps into my safety role almost seamlessly. I want to make sure what our client sees on all of our social media sites is how committed we are to safety and safety training. I thoroughly enjoy blending the two roles and taking that knowledge to another level with our various updates and postings.

I am very fortunate that my current position is very close to a lot of the passions I have in life. I love football, we do work for the San Francisco 49ers; I enjoy wine, and we get to work with local wineries; and I very passionate about graphic arts and designs, and I get to utilize those skills daily within all our marketing materials.

Each month I host a safety meeting for the staff where we discuss issues that are relevant to our past, current and future jobs. We also discuss training on various topics, like ballasting or fire extinguisher training as an example.

Made in the Shade is a great company to work for as they stress on making sure each and every one of us is trained to handle the volume of work that comes through each season. I see Made in the Shade becoming one of the leaders of the tent industry because of our safety culture and our desire to make each customer feel like they are good hands with us on the job.

There truly are not enough positive things to say about Made in the Shade. From exactly matching our “in a perfect world” vision, to their consistently efficient and easy customer service, this company makes my job sourcing rentals hassle-free.

We have been working with Made in the Shade for all of our clients tenting needs for over 10 years. They continue to provide exceptional service and products, going beyond when the unforeseen happens. During one of our own personal tragedies, they were right there to help us with a temporary shelter so we could continue working. Thank you MITS Family!

Fleet Feet Event Management has been a client of Made In The Shade since 2009. I always feel we have so many options to choose from when we establish our needs beyond the tent itself, fans, lighting, heaters, clear decorative walls. The Made In The Shade team has been so consistently professional, honest, hard-working and dependable, and it has been an absolute pleasure to work with you.
