Our team

Since 2006, the Angela Rogers Group has been a hard-working, hands-on firm with a partnership approach to its clients. Clients often ask how we do it, and we refer them to a quote we love from the great Lucille Ball: “If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. The more things you do, the more you can do.”

ARG is built on this principle. No matter how many ongoing projects we have, we work hard every day to make sure that each of our clients — each of our partners — knows that they are receiving 100-percent dedication from our team.

We begin every relationship by working to understand clients’ goals and objectives and earn their trust. Through attention to detail and effective listening, our team functions as an extension of your businesses. After all, your reputation and success are a reflection of us.

Simply put, we’re committed to exceeding expectations. Our work speaks for itself, and that’s the Angela Rogers Group difference.

Ashley Hayden

Director of Client Services

  • HOMETOWN | Ashley hails from a small town in Iowa and although she’s been in Arkansas for over ten years, she’s still a midwesterner at heart. She still doesn’t understand why Arkansans call “pop” – “soda” or “shopping carts” – “buggies.” and says “you guys” instead of “ya’ll”, despite our best efforts on correcting her.

 

  • PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND | Ashley has garnered quite a bit of professional event and administrative experience in her career thus far. Most notably working at an advertising and event planning and promotion agency for many years. Ashley joined the ARG team in 2014 and is a talented asset to the group. She was most recently promoted to Director of Client Services. Although Ashley’s duties are extremely varied, they include taking care of event campaign coordination aspects, registration forms and applications, databases, sponsorship and VIP logistics as well as budgets, financials, badges, signage and programs as well as a ton of the little conference details that all add up.

Heather Anzalone

Administrative and Convention-Planning Support

  • HOMETOWN | Heather grew up in a tiny town called Garner, Arkansas. Given the small and connected hometown feel of only being surrounded by 250 people, this could be considered challenging to some, but she wouldn’t have dreamed of being raised in another location.

 

  • PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND | After leaving Garner, Arkansas in 2005, she then relocated to Gulfport, Mississippi to take on a management and hospitality position at the local Casino. She was responsible for a wide variety of tasks, including training employees, setting policies and gaming rules, observing the casino floor, customer relations, coordinating security and prepare and tracking the cash flow of the casino. In 2010, she found her way into the Angela Rogers Group family, where she now uses her skills to play various roles for ARG. Her main two roles include administrative and convention-planning support that of which helps the business keep their feet on the ground. Mostly helping with local events, we would be lost without our on-site helper coming to our rescue.

  • IF HEATHER WEREN’T SO GOOD AT HER JOB, SHE WOULD PROBABLY BE | A professional organizer

Kat Hills

Senior Coordinator of Media and Web Services

  • HOMETOWN | Originally from St. Louis, MO (Go Cardinals!), Kat has resided in Little Rock for over 12 years before moving to Oregon last year.

 

  • PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND | Kat moved to Little Rock, Arkansas in 2005 to begin working for Arkansas Business Publishing Group in the IT/Research Department. After working there for two years, she soon realized her passion for event planning, where then she transferred to an association management company to live out that art. After strenuously working for 2 years on heavy doses of PR work and website management for various clients, namely the US Green Building Council, she decided to return to her Arkansas Business roots. In doing so, she came back as an Advertising Coordinator in the print and ad design department. She joined the Angela Rogers Group in October 2010 and hasn’t looked back! Currently working on website design and development and creating web-based solutions for clients and conferences, she’s our mainframe for the IT aspect of our firm.
