November 27, 2019 by Allison Bell
Patty Capawana, vice president, events, at Prudential Financial Inc. is one of the 340,800 or so home office employees who keep U.S. life insurance home office operations humming — and one of about 50,000 people who work for Prudential, or with Prudential, around the world.
She manages part of Prudential’s use of the most powerful communications medium ever: Getting a bunch of people together in a room.
Capawana has been working for Prudential since 1970, and she’ll celebrate her 50th anniversary with the company July 7. She produces meetings, galas and other events, on- and offsite, for about a dozen top-level “clients” inside Prudential. One was a press briefing in New York that brought her to this reporter’s attention. She also oversees conference centers, at Prudential’s Prudential Tower building in Newark, New Jersey, and elsewhere, that host more than 1,500 events per year.
