Meetings Manager

Parthenon Management Group


Job Summary

In 2008, our founders, Ronnie Wilkins and Sarah Timm, were faced with an opportunity. They had been so successfully running one of the foremost scientific associations that other associations were taking notice…and started asking for their help.

Ronnie and Sarah generously prepared a list of preferred vendors and best practices and just gave it away to anyone who asked. But the associations which had approached them found that what they really needed was Ronnie and Sarah’s expertise.

The door opened, and they decided to take the leap into association management, becoming Parthenon Management Group (PMG), which is wholly owned by the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ACNP).

Through word of mouth, PMG grew to 57 employees with 23 clients. As a leader in the industry, PMG is rapidly growing due to the employees’ abilities to innovate, adapt, and pivot toward new technology and processes. Where others have, unfortunately, lost during the uncertainty of 2020, we have seen increase. Strong and creative leadership has navigated us through uncertain territory.

Our mission is to help our clients achieve theirs. And it’s working…the results of our annual client satisfaction survey are always outstanding. Our clients consistently rate us a 4.8 out of 5.

People come first at PMG. That goes for both our clients and our team members. We are known for our exceptional customer service and work ethic. Our clients are like family to us! But our real families are also a priority. From flexible work schedules, including work-from-home plans, paid volunteer days, profit sharing and more, PMG takes great care of its team members.
