How I got here: “Throughout college I worked in sales and marketing at my family’s RV dealership and played a critical role in its expansion and success. Although I knew I would not likely stay in that industry, it gave me my passion for adventure. I am immensely grateful to be in a position where I can encourage others to explore new places, expand horizons, meet people and experience new cultures.”

Superstar stats: As the youngest member of the strategy team in Aimia’s events division, Decker’s millennial-minded approach to business and creative skill set helped Aimia win four new sizable pieces of event business while in her first position at the company.

Bragging rights: Decker submitted four award-winning Site Crystal programs, honoring the top tier of world-class organizations that excel in designing unique and memorable incentive travel programs.
