Laura FabianChief Executive Officer24 Carrots Catering and Events

Laura’s foundation for business success began with a strong knowledge of marketing and sales in her early career. She quickly transitioned to the events industry with a passion for creating memorable experiences that guests will never forget. Her strong grasp of logistics combined with a sharp eye for detail made her the perfect fit to join 24 Carrots more than 15 years ago. Since that time, Laura has held numerous positions including Director of Sales, Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, and Chief Executive Officer. In her current executive role, she guides key business decisions that align 24 Carrots core values with their mission “to create and inspire.” That includes the selectivity and implementation of big projects that push the company to achieve its long-term vision. She is a firm believer in understanding the “Why” and being approachable and present within all aspects of the organization.
