About Us

When our Founder and CEO Kathi was just 15 years old, she started working in corporate event development at a major amusement park in Minnesota.

By the time she was 16, she became a lead within an expanding division of the park. Despite her young age, she played an instrumental role in business growth and innovation, and was always dedicated to thinking outside of the box and bringing new opportunities to light.

After graduating from the University of Arkansas, Kathi continued working in event planning and site selection positions. After 5 years of making a mark for herself in the event management industry, Kathi became an Event Management Consultant for the Fortune 500 recreational vehicle company, Polaris Industries.

Kathi drove transformative results for Polaris, attracting more clients and increasing revenue. Building on this momentum, she founded Reaction Management, Inc. (RMI) in 1997.

Today, the RMI team includes a seasoned team of Event Managers. Our impeccable attention to detail, meticulous follow-through skills, and unwavering loyalty to clients and vendors are just a few things that set us apart in a very crowded marketplace. We provide elite corporate event management and product launch services along with incentive packages and appreciation gift programs to brands including Toyota/Lexus, Indian Motorcycle, Nikola, Blake Shelton’s restaurant brand Ole Red, Slingshot, Ryman Hospitality, Polaris (Yes! After all of these years, we’re still supporting planning and managing their product launches, incentive packages, and appreciation gift programs!), and many more.
