I’ll bet you didn’t know that Celebrity Staff has a Des Moines location that opened in January of 2008. We LOVE our location in the West Glen area because of easy access to I-35 and the awesome lunchtime shopping nearby. Celebrity Staff expanded to Des Moines because of the growing number of clients in Omaha with Des Moines locations; it just made sense for us to expand our services. Let’s compare some of the fun facts about Des Moines and Iowa to some fun facts about the Celebrity Staff Des Moines team!
Former actor and President, Ronald Reagan, was an announcer for Chicago Cubs baseball games on WHO radio in Des Moines. Madison Sauer, Account Manager, is also a former professional actor from Milwaukee, WI. Madison had a part at the Brumder Mansion production of Krampus in December 2014.
Kory Kidd, Senior Account Manager, loves bacon! He loves bacon so much that he will go on an annual Bacon Ride near Des Moines and ride 78 miles on his bicycle to celebrate all things bacon. There are nine stops along the ride that all serve different types of bacon. If you love bacon, that is where to find Kory.
Crista Lorence, Account Manager, purchased a 1980 2-door LeBaron for $800 as her first car. She complained to her dad about the paint and lack of air conditioning so her father spray painted the car maroon and “installed air conditioning” that required a toggle to turn on / off. The only way to regulate the temp was to roll the windows down. Sounds like she got the idea from Pinterest? Maybe! Pinterest founder, Ben Silbermann, was born and raised in Des Moines.
From record attendance, to record concert ticket sales, to the world’s largest rabbit (weighing in at 22lbs, 5.5oz in 2012), the Iowa State Fair is the place to learn about the latest record to beat. It sounds as if a new category should be shoe ownership. Celebrity Staff’s own superstar Kiley Clausen, Operations Manager, owns well over 100 pairs of shoes! She is always in fashion at the office.
