Sr. Manager, Special Events Sales & Business Development
Vickie Eiges is a tenacious and driven sales and marketing professional with an entrepreneurial spirit that helps companies grow their business.
Vickie started her own event planning company from her living room and in three months, created a successful brick-and-mortar business – opening her own office specializing in parties and company events that cater to those that want creativity, originality and fun.
She joined Scott’s Seafood Jack London Square as their Director of Events and Catering for several years; then during the inaugural season of Levi’s Stadium in 2014, Vickie met Chef Michael Mina over a plate of butter poached lobster during a preseason game she was attending.
Being a ruthless saleswoman and networker, passionate foodie and football fan, Vickie turned that lobster connection into a full-time role with the Mina Corporation as the Director of Sales for his 30+ restaurants throughout the United States.
After many more meals and successful sales with the Mina Corporation, Vickie transitioned up north to Sacramento, CA where she became the Director of Events and Tours for Legends Hospitality. She was an integral member of the opening team at the state-of-the-art Golden 1 Center, home of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings. Vickie managed and developed the special event sales department, as well as curated the arena tours program. Vickie was an instrumental part of the catering team in developing the farm-to-fork private events catering program that was carried throughout the Golden 1 Center.
In early 2018, Vickie was given the opportunity to join the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers. She was hired to manage the Special Events Sales team, focused on driving sales through brand awareness and business development.
Vickie was also honored to be named as President-elect of the Stadium Special Events Group (SSEG) – a group made of NFL stadium events teams from around the country.
Vickie lives in the Bay Area with her family. She has a strong passion for USC and 49er football, food, wine and staying active – working out at Orange Theory and cycling on her Peloton.
