John Brown, President
John Brown started his career with Monte Carlo Productions in the fall of 1987 in a part time capacity while attending Georgia Tech. As a way to earn spending money while in college it also afforded him the opportunity to travel the country. He realized very early on that his future would be with Monte Carlo.
As a 25 year veteran of the entertainment business, John has worked in every capacity at MCP. Rising from a part time student worker to the director of operations, he went on to become vice president of the company and partner. Today he is the president and sole owner of the company.
Throughout his career, John has coordinated hundreds of events. For over 40 years, Monte Carlo has been leading the competition with innovative ideas in entertaining companies across America. Since joining the team, John has continuously worked to improve and expand the company’s offerings and as a result of his efforts, the business has continued to grow and thrive. After two relocations to larger facilities, Monte Carlo Productions now occupies a 40,000 square foot warehouse in Midtown Atlanta. John is very excited to be located on the Atlanta Beltline off Howell Mill Road.
Monte Carlo services Fortune 500 companies, meeting planners, associations, local businesses, charities/fundraisers, church groups, high schools, and local communities. John believes it is important to give back. Each year he donates an average of $50,000 in goods and services to many charitable organizations. Since 2012, Monte Carlo has supported over thirty local charities including: Jerusalem House, Childrens’ Miracle Network, Georgia Ovarian Cancer Association, Chopstix for Charity, Dream Makers Youth Foundation, and the Child Development Association.
John was born and raised in Warwick, Rhode Island and after moving to Georgia to attend Georgia Tech, he decided to make Atlanta his hometown. He currently resides in Smyrna, Georgia with his wife Rosemary and their two children, Evan and Elena. He enjoys working out and having fun, which is probably why he has been so successful in his career. His favorite thing to say about his job is “I throw parties for a living, what could be more fun than that?”
“I’m a real Georgia girl just talk to me and you’ll know it immediately by my thick southern drawl. I have officially been with MCP for 6 years as Vice President of Sales. However you could say I have been married to the job for 14 years. My favorite repeat event year after year has to be the 4-H National meeting, where we transform the ballrooms of the Hyatt into an International tour for the students who attend.
Most recently I loved working at Chick Fil A headquarters, as we brought the Truett’s Luau concept to life and turned their facility into a tropical paradise for their Founders day celebration. I have been in the events industry for 25 years as both a meeting planner and catering and event sales. I worked for UGA as a meeting and program planner for 19 years before joining the MCP team. I enjoy working at MCP and bringing joy to the guest who attend the events. I love that we can transform a venue into whatever our client envisions.”
Jeff is the Creative Director at Monte Carlo Productions. He has over 30 years of experience in the creative industry, eighteen of those years here at Monte Carlo where he enjoys his work and working with his MCP associates immensely…except for that Aussie!…LOL

Larrikin? Yes. Nobody knows what this means, but all Aussies definitely are. When it comes to chants at sporting (or MCP Casino) events, a simple, “Aussie Aussie Aussie! Oi Oi Oi!” will do.
Then there’s the sausage sizzle. Australians think sausages on election day or outside large hardware store chains are important. It may be a uniquely Australian value to stage sausage sizzles at polling places or at the Home Depot equivalent.
Other countries can run around being fancy. That’s just not an Aussie’s way.
Rachel also loves cats. She currently has three. Moose, Squirrel and Lamb Chop.
