Meeting planners and attendees alike will fall in love with Overland Park and all that the city has to offer, just like our sales team! They’ve been at Visit Overland Park for a combined 25 years, during which time they’ve helped meeting and event planners flawlessly execute events ranging from large corporate meetings and annual awards banquets to premier tradeshows and national sports tournaments.
From helping meeting and event planners with RFP submissions to offering venue and entertainment suggestions to ensuring meetings or events proceed smoothly and without a hitch, the Visit Overland Park sales team is ready and willing to help however they can. But first, how about a quick introduction to our hardworking sales team members?
A native New Yorker, Mindy began her hospitality career at the Hotel Thayer at West Point. Mindy later relocated to the Midwest, along with her husband, Todd, and their two daughters, Emily and Makayla, and spent eight years at a local hotel management company before joining Visit Overland Park in 2003. If you spend time at Topgolf, you might bump into Mindy—she loves to sit on the patio with a cold beverage before teeing off and enjoying an evening with friends.

A lifelong Overland Park resident, Brad’s been in the hospitality industry for nearly four decades, experience that’s given him incredible industry insight and knowledge. He earned his Certified Meeting Professional designation in 2002 and, since he joined Visit Overland Park in 2006, loves showing off the city. In his free time, you’ll probably find Brad running or biking on the miles of trails that traverse Overland Park. Brad loves the opportunity to immerse himself in nature without leaving the city.
Komal joined the team in April 2016. Right away, she put her master’s degree in tourism and hospitality management to work. Originally from Tampa, FL, Komal now calls KC|OP home. Komal is our in-house vegan foodie – she can tell you the best vegan eats in the area, and all the best (and worst) coffee, too! When not hustling on behalf of her clients, you may find her slowing down at Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in OP.
Brian was born & raised in this region – he left for a short time for college in Texas, but we forgive him. Brian is the face behind our growing housing services. He enjoys the challenge of finding the perfect accommodations for thousands of people as if each was his own family member. Outside the office, you will find Brian spending time with his wife & daughter, fishing with his dad, seeking out the best cuisine in OP, and cheering on his favorite teams. If you want to make a fast friend in Brian, greet him with “Let’s go Royals!” “CHIEFS!” or, “Rock Chalk Jayhawk!”
Sarah joined Visit Overland Park in June of 2017. She’s passionate about her hometown and loves seeking out the new and unique things OP has to offer. When the weekend comes around, you won’t find Sarah sitting around; she’s out with her dog, Brody, or competing in sports leagues with friends all over KC|OP. As sales and marketing coordinator, Sarah supports the team on various projects, periodically writes for the KC|OP blog, and greets all our visitors with a smile!
