December 3, 2007. Troy, MI –The Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance has appointed Mary Anne Parks of Troy as its Director of Marketing. She will be responsible for all promotional activities for the Concours, one of the most prestigious automobile events in the world. Her duties include relationship building for new and existing sponsors, as well as creating and implementing new ideas and events to fit those sponsors’ agendas.

The 30th Annual Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance, a presentation of some of the most exotic and valuable vintage automobiles in the world, will take place Sunday, August 3, 2008 at Meadow Brook Hall on the grounds of Oakland University in Rochester Hills, Michigan

Her most recent assignment was with the Troy Chamber of Commerce as Director of Member Services where in addition to developing marketing and public relations programs for members she was responsible for developing and maintaining member relationships.

“The Meadow Brook Concours is an absolutely first class event,” said Parks. “We are so entrenched in the automotive business here that we tend to lose site of the fact that this industry has produced so many beautiful works of art, by so many talented people.
