Taking Care of the Details

Meet Mindy Naylor, Banquet Manager

The Emerald Event Center is known for fabulous and detailed events, weddings, fundraisers and meetings. One face you will generally see for all of them is that of Mindy Naylor, the Emerald Event Center’s Banquet Manager. She can be found hustling before most events making sure every detail of presentation is on point, cutlery polished, champagne poured, every seat in its proper place. It is Mindy’s job to make sure each event shines with Emerald polish and expectations are always exceeded. “There is no better reward than when a bride and groom are happy with the service  food and atmosphere we’ve provided for their special day,” says Mindy.

Mindy has a long career in food service, hospitality and banquet management in and around Lorain County. She is known for her kindness and love of people and says “I’ve never met a stranger.” Mindy and her husband, Rick have been married for 36 years and together have raised their son Justin who has just recently married.

Whether hosting or attending an event at the Emerald Event Center, you are bound to cross paths with Mindy – another friendly face behind our Emerald magic!
