CORT Events Employee Honored by University of Central Florida with ‘30 Under 30’ Recognition

CORT Events, a division of CORT, a Berkshire Hathaway Company, has announced today that Selina Mullenax, district account executive for the Orlando area, was named among the University of Central Florida’s 30 Under 30, honoring exceptional young alumni.

The University of Central Florida’s 30 Under 30 Awards recognize influential young alumni annually who are making a difference in central Florida and beyond. The winners were honored at a formal ceremony at the Morgridge International Reading Center on April 13.  

Mullenax currently serves as the district account executive for Orlando, Gainesville and Jacksonville, assisting local clients from inspiration to execution, while servicing client event needs nationally.

“We are so proud of Selina’s accomplishments and know that this award celebrates her many strengths and wonderful contributions she has made not only to our CORT Events team, but throughout the central Florida community,” said Kevin Dana, executive director of marketing and product development at CORT Events.

After graduating from the Rosen College of Hospitality Management, Mullenax sought opportunities to get more involved with local industry organizations. In 2012, she joined the Orlando chapter of Meeting Professionals International (MPI) and has served on the Board of Directors for the past five terms. For this dedication to service and excellence, she is the only member to receive both the President’s Award from the MPI Greater Orlando Chapter and be nominated for Meeting Industry Leadership and Member of the Year on an international level with MPI.

Beyond her professional achievements, Mullenax has given both time and resources to help others activate their interest in the hospitality industry. Mullenax has created scholarship programs for students at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management, personally sponsored two students with global memberships and encouraged many to apply for conference scholarships around the world.

“We appreciate the energy and dedication Selina brings to every aspect of her life, both personally and professionally, and can’t wait to see what she does next,” says Dana.
