Chase Mayer is the Director of Marketing and Business Development for CBK Catering & Events. He is responsible for all new business, local partnerships, and marketing efforts including advertising, web, and print materials. Chase attended Florida State University, graduating with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration, majoring in Entrepreneurship.
Chase has always had a drive for business and entrepreneurship, starting his career at age eight by founding the “Bacteria Fighters,” a local garbage receptacle cleaning business, which would later matriculate into a commercial car detailing and pressure cleaning company landing various corporate contracts all while under the age of eighteen.
He worked in the Community Relations department for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers first as an intern and later on the gameday and event operations team. During college, he helped to propose and develop a catering department for a well-respected restaurant, eventually providing services for many of Florida State’s renowned athletic programs, the College of Business, state government officials at the Capitol Building, and other local businesses.
Chase has been with CBK from the very beginning, starting by working events, driving trucks, doing dishes, and other not-so-glorious tasks. He later would lead a complete rebranding campaign for CBK, which involved changing the business name from Catering By Kathy to CBK Catering & Events, developing a new website, logo, and marketing materials which helped to elevate the company’s presence in the Tampa Bay Area. CBK has come a long way since the founding, and Chase looks forward to developing the company into one of the most prominent hospitality firms in the Tampa Bay Area.
