Jessica Marbut, Director of Sales for Plano Centre, has earned the prestigious Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) credential.

The CMP program was established in 1985 by the Convention Industry Council (CIC). The CMP credential is recognized globally as the badge of excellence in the meeting, convention, exhibition and event industry. The qualifications for certification are based on professional experience, education and a rigorous exam.

"Jessica exemplifies all that the Certified Meeting Professional credential stands for," said Mark Jarrell, Plano Centre General Manager. "The competence and value she brings to her work not only helps bring meetings and events to Plano Centre, but also raises the bar for our industry as a whole.”

Marbut holds a Bachelor of Science degree in recreation, park and tourism sciences with an emphasis in tourism management from Texas A&M University. Marbut has worked as the catering sales manager at Ventana Inn & Spa in Big Sur, CA and as the event coordinator at Lincoln Military Housing in San Diego, CA.

Marbut is an active member of Meeting Professionals International (MPI), serving on the Education & Events Committee. She is also a member of the Dallas Fort Worth Association Executives (DFWAE) and is on the Networking Committee where she was presented in July with a Star Award for her help coordinating a recent networking event.
