Alphonse Stalliard

Senior Event Manager

Alphonse Stalliard oversees and coordinates service needs for all special events at the Knoxville Convention Center.

A native of St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, Stalliard is a 2002 University of Miami graduate with a degree in international finance and marketing.

His atypical background for someone in the hospitality industry includes working at a hedge fund trading commodities out of college. From there, he got involved with options and structured derivatives first at Lehman Brothers and then at Barclays Capital in New York. Stalliard began working in event management when he returned home to the Virgin Islands.

Since moving to Knoxville, Stalliard is enjoying the area’s southern hospitality and is proud to serve the community through his work at the Convention Center.
