One of my favorite work memories was coming in one morning and heading for the Operations Office to say good morning to the crew. As I neared the door to the office, I heard one side of a telephone call from somewhere above me.

I stopped and looked up and saw that our Operations staff had moved the Director of Operations, Steve Warren’s, entire office, desk, printer, telephone, everything, to the top level of a 12-foot-high warehouse rack, completely functional and intact. It took half a day before he gave in.

Working with an elite team of professionals, I have many amazing memories.

One great memory was when we were tasked with doing all the Audio and Visual installation for the Marvel and Star Wars Experience in Shanghai, China for Disneyland’s new park.

From planning to execution, we were able to help create an amazing experience for guests using some of the newest technology and equipment.

My favorite memories have to be the countless evenings I have spent with my crews after finishing a challenging show.

The people I have met at VCI are what makes the experience the most rewarding.

My favorite memories are of the whole team sitting down at one long table for a “family” meal of Cortina’s.

Even when we were busy, we made a point to take a break, try not to talk shop, and truly enjoy each other’s company. What a great team we have!

As an avid Star Wars fan, contributing to the opening of Disneyland’s Galaxy’s Edge became an unexpected feather in my cap. Collaborating closely with the Disney team in the lead-up to the park’s grand debut was an absolutely incredible experience.

Exploring every intricate detail of the land alongside my friends and co-workers, and witnessing their exceptional execution during the event, and even seeing a few of our FOH team getting to dress in some Star Wars outfits for show, will always be one of my favorite projects that I’ve worked on.

My favorite thing about VCI is I come in to work every single day and everyone is welcoming. I can truly say that VCI is a family.

From Kirk greeting everyone with a warming handshake to the shop saying good morning and helping each other throughout the day.

I would have to say my most fond memory was being at the Anaheim shop and showing up with a late pick up and Steve Warren, our Director of Operations, was there to help me off-load. It made me really feel like I was a part of a team that really cared.

I most enjoy the global feeling of a job well done shared with my close friends and colleagues. When everyone is focused on the same goal, success is the only option. The feeling that I know I can count on any of my VCI family to come through when needed.

It’s challenging to narrow it down to just one memory. However, if I have to do so, it would be at the close of 2022 at our all-hands meeting.

Seeing how the team pulled through one of the most challenging times our industry has ever seen.

Kimberlee Winkle

Director of Finance & administration

Since 2015

My favorite memory is during my 5th job interview (yes, they called me back 5 times) at VCI way back when, I brought homemade cookies hoping it would seal the deal. It worked and it was the craziest and best decision ever.
