Who We Are
Kate Stockton, CMP
Kate has been producing savvy and successful meetings and events for over 20 years. She is known for her innovative vision, attention to detail, and dedication to the success of every project. Her commitment to superior service and a tireless work ethic support her resume of success. She is proud of the value of her wide industry knowledge and what it adds to each project. Her client-focused, collaborative approach is what sets her work and her company apart.
Fun Facts: Kate spends quiet time in her tiny but beautiful backyard urban garden (which has been featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Garden section). She started her event career singing in the first ever Sesame Street Live! show tour. She loves music and theatre, and slips away to the Sunday matinee of The Philadelphia Opera Company every season.
Jennie’s years as an in-house corporate meeting planner offers clients the highest degree of industry excellence and accountability. As one of S&P’s founding partners, her diverse background in events and meetings, her ability to assess the ROI on each event and her strategic approach adds value to client relationships. She is known for her professional, proactive style with sponsors, exhibitors, and community partners, as well as her skill in negotiating hotel and food and beverage contracts. Jennie is also active in the Philadelphia Chapter of Meeting Professionals International where she serves on the Board of Directors as the Director of Sponsorships.
Fun Facts: Jennie loves to travel, especially internationally. Her first international trip was to London at age 16, followed by a study abroad program in Australia. Since then, she has traveled to more than 25 countries (and counting) to date!
Allison’s diverse planning background brings perspective and value to our clients’ projects. From her years in hotel convention services and sales to those planning for a national DMC to her position as S&P’s Event Operations Manager, her passion for design and attention to detail assure that events are unique, innovative, and logistically sound. Our clients value her creative capabilities, broad vendor knowledge, unmatched relationship skills and organizational abilities.
Fun Facts: When she’s not working on our latest project, Allison can most likely be found dining at one of Philly’s many great restaurants. As an avid Foodie she has planned several food crawls through the city sampling everything from Cheesesteaks to Tacos. Fortunately she is also an avid runner competing in half and full marathons …she runs so she can eat!
Amy perfectly rounds out the team as our Sales and Marketing Coordinator. As our team's resident social media maven and wordsmith, she supports the firm’s internal marketing efforts as well as helps to promote our clients’ events and brand when needed. Her on-site experience and calm, steady, get-it-done demeanor are valued by clients and team members alike.
Fun Facts: As a connoisseur of the vegan food scene in Philly, Amy has recommendations for any treat from the best burrito to a chocolate milkshake. She enjoys listening to true crime podcasts, tending to her houseplants and scouring the state's thrift stores for knick-knacks and unique attire.
The Stockton & Partners Approach
Clients select us for our fresh perspective and innovative approach to every project; and depend on us for a foundation rooted in strategy, experience and flawless execution. We begin the planning process by digging deeply into the project, understanding what message is to be communicated, who the audience is and looking ahead to the desired outcome.

Stockton & Partners delivers events built with style and substance, able to engage the audience on many levels. The experience is carefully choreographed to keep the event fresh and interesting.
