In her new role, Teel will coordinate daily activities in the downtown venue with various departments and work to continuously improve the reputation and award-winning standards of the convention center and interject best industry practices into the day-to-day operations.
“The enthusiasm and passion for great events and guest experiences at the Cox Business Center is something I share,” Teel said. “I’m looking forward to getting to know the entire team and Tulsa better, and to contribute to the outstanding impact the venue has on the city and everyone who steps inside.”
Teel studied International Business at Missouri State University before beginning her career in events.
