Richelle Norman 

Client Relations Manager 

​Richelle Norman, originally from the white-sand beaches of Clearwater, Fl has been busy organizing events all over the country for the last 13 years. What started as friends​ seeing her gift for planning weddings​ and ​music events, ​it has become ​her ​obsess​ion​ ​~ ​assisting her clients to get exactly what they envision and not a service they do not need. 

​Now ​Richelle has more than a decade of experience in planning ​with​ a focus on efficient execution and friendly customer service with a BA in cultural studies from Moody Bible Institute​. She has managed numerous events for conference centers, charity events, art galleries, fashion/music/art shows and corporate meetings​​ and truly loves being in the background seeing it all come together! 

In her current position as the POUR Bar Services ~ Client Relations Manager, Richelle is responsible for building the perfect beverage package for both ​private and corporate events of all kinds. Specializing in knowing the Raleigh-Durham venues and their amenities, her customers receive streamlined knowledge, lighting-fast quotes and personalized ​consultation so that putting together the bar package for an event is the least stressful part of all planning, and in fact, fun! She is proud to be a part of this unique, fast-faced company that strives to think outside the box to provide the highest level of "turn-key" bar services at an unbeatable price. 

Known for her ​calm and professional attitude, ​Richelle tackles challenges with positive energy and solutions. Her favorite quote is, “If you are going to do something, do it well!” and this is a constant drive for her. Because Richelle is a musician at heart, she is deeply committed to the final ​production being the very best it​ can be so that everyone involved truly enjoys the experience at the maximum level.​ 

​If Richelle is not in her office planning the perfect bar set-up, or visiting her favorite venues in North Carolina, she is probably chasing her twin boys around the park or taking a walk in the woods singing her favorite Johnny Cash song at the top of her lungs! ​Shoot her a text or email today and she will be happy to assist you on your next special occasion!
