AMG’s President and CEO, Tina E. Akintayo, enjoys crossing industry genres in her work. She believes in reducing conceptual waste by recycling ideas from one industry to ignite stagnated areas in another. Tina is a Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) and a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional (LEED AP) who has served the hospitality community, and more recently, the sustainability community, stretching over a 20 year period. Tina’s professionalism and commitment to solid execution of services has earned her numerous awards, from the “Top 100s List of Influential Women in Georgia” with Women Looking Ahead Magazine; the “Rising Star” Award from Richfield Hospitality and a host of other awards from Omni Hotels Corporation; to the Georgia Meeting Professionals International (GAMPI) and Society of Government Meeting Professionals (SGMP), to name just a few.
Mrs. Akintayo’s reputation and passion for effecting sustainable conscientiousness in the world, led to her being appointed the Director of Housing of the 2008 Democratic National Convention (DNC), with the massive responsibility of developing, managing and greening the housing process for thousands of convention attendees. Since that time, under Tina’s innovative leadership, AMG, in conjunction with EventSphere and It’s My Affair, was selected, through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process, to partner with the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) to provide the same strategic Housing management for the 2012 DNC.
In the corporate arena, Tina is noted for her genuine ability of building and maintaining synergy in all business-to-client interactions. She strives to achieve her overarching goals of successfully matching client requirements with company solutions, driving successful business relationships by establishing open lines of communication, and measurably insuring solid execution of services.
