AGAWAM – Chez Josef, celebration specialists serving southern New England, announced the appointment of new Sales and Marketing Manager, Pamela D. Vadnais.

She is responsible for business development and coordinating marketing initiatives on behalf of Chez Josef’s comprehensive event planning and hosting services, including weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, retirement parties, proms, fundraising events, awards, banquets, holiday functions, corporate events and more.

“Pam has extensive experience in the hospitality industry,” Marc Sparks, president and CEO of Chez Josef, said. “She brings a goal-oriented approach to event planning – inviting our guests to envision the event and she works strategically to make those visions a reality.”

Vadnais, a resident of Ludlow, is a veteran of the hospitality industry with more than 20 years of experience. Prior to joining Chez Josef, she spent more than 10 years as a catering and events coordinator at a local country club and was a program officer and development assistant for The Jimmy Fund.

Vadnais is a long-time Western Massachusetts resident and a graduate of Minnechaug Regional High School in Wilbraham. Additionally, she is active in her community and has held several industry-related positions including a concession manager for a performing arts center. She is currently a chairwoman for the Annual Parish Fundraising Picnic for St. John the Baptist church in Ludlow.

“I really enjoy meeting new people and the business of planning events,” Vadnais said. “From walking our guests through Chez Josef for site tours to the details like place settings and menus, I am prepared to help you plan an event that is as unique as you are. My goal is to create an experience the way that you envision it best – and that memories made at Chez Josef will last for years to come.”

Executive Chef Marcel Ouimet said, “Pam’s previous experience coordinating catering is very beneficial for our guests here at Chez Josef. Food is always a central element to any event, and she really understands how to tie in the details like flavors and presentation. Her skills complement our existing staff and I’m excited to see how she will help us grow.”
