Our Philosophy

Attention to Brand
Your brand is your story and storytelling is in our blood. A great brand tells your audience where you began, what’s your journey, and where you’re reaching for the future. We support every detail of your event to make sure your brand is a clear definition of who you are and where you are going.

Versatility
Our clients know and trust that their unique needs will be met with unique solutions. We provide a variety of options to fit every budget, style, and type of event. Because flexibility isn’t just for yoga class.

Success
Because your success is our success. Period.

Ann Chitwood Co-President, LilyGild I’ve always been fascinated by how we communicate.  That fascination is what motivated me to partner in the creation of LilyGild over 20 years ago and it still motivates me today. I believe all events are about creating change.  If the message and the delivery aren’t effective, there is no lasting impact. My time in the theater as a director and stage manager taught me a how to technically support the message.  My years in the classroom taught me the importance of choosing the right words and sitting on the procurement side of a corporate desk made me fiscally responsible. Our team understands our philosophy and shares our excitement and vision.  It just doesn’t get any better than that!

Rea Rosno Co-President, LilyGild Acting has always been my passion—ever since I can remember. The excitement of being on stage brought my love for communicating to the surface and prepared me for my acting and Off-Broadway producing career and kindled my love of design and graphics. I started a business because I got tired of people telling me what I could and couldn’t do—and I wanted to make those decisions for myself. Spending time with my husband and three children (whom I fought so hard to get!) was paramount in determining how I wanted to live life and make a living. The resiliency I learned and the joy experienced from creating my family and LilyGild both have taught me that there is always a solution for every problem encountered—it’s where I have found excitement, discovery and happiness. I truly love doing my job!
