Our Two Newest Hires Help Us Complete Projects from A-Z

Colonnade continues to grow, and that means our team does too. These new team members are already helping us go the extra mile for our clients, behind the scenes and on the front lines. So far in 2019, we’ve welcomed Gary Drummond as our Assistant Warehouse Manager and Jonathan Ward as our newest Project Manager.

Gary Drummond


By the time a Colonnade Group event is set and ready for fans, it’s easy to forget the heavy lifting that happens on the front end to make it all possible. That’s why it’s essential we have Gary on our team. With experience managing fast-paced warehouses and distribution centers for UPS, Amazon, Walmart, and Harley Davidson, Gary is perfectly suited for the detail-oriented work that comes with managing the high-volume, large-scale projects that come through Colonnade Group’s warehouse. Gary’s mantra that makes him a perfect CG fit?

“Dedication doesn’t have an off season.”

Jonathan Ward


Since graduating from the University of Alabama-Birmingham in 2007, Jonathan has spent a decade managing multimillion-dollar, temporary facilities all over North America, including work at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics and the Breeders Cup at Keeneland Race Track. As Project Manager at Colonnade Group, Jonathan brings his strategic, operational, and fiscal leadership to bear on a wide array of events. But how has Jonathan been so successful? By focusing on the client.

“Take great care of a client’s time, their budget, work together, and the event will be the best it can possibly be.”
