Meet Our Team!
Derrick Palms, Vice President of Events and Business Development
Derrick wants to live in a world where he could teleport to work (hello Atlanta traffic), no one ever served eggplant, and his house was an overwater Bungalow in Bora Bora.
Born in Kalamazoo, MI but grew up in Cumming, GA, He started his career at his Alma Mater Kennesaw State University as event staff. Fast forward a few years and Derrick began his ASSC journey as a photographer for events (he is really good!). That translated into a full time gig as the Corporate Events Manager, by getting to use the skills he learned at KSU and early in his career, along with getting to join the environment he craved at ASSC. He is excited that the sole focus of his job is fun. He gets to bring that fun to businesses and the local Atlanta community.
When he isn’t planning events or taking awesome photos, he is enjoying his wife’s cooking, playing with his dogs, and probably watching a broadway musical! He also may be planning his roadtrip across the US, or maybe a trip to South Africa! Just like Kevin and Tyler you can catch him surfing the Best Buy website in his spare time. His personal mantra: Make a Difference. 
If you see Derrick at an event say what’s up Big D, and ask him about his favorite slice of pizza!

Kevin Cregan, Founder & President 


Kevin wants to live in a world where you were born knowing how to fly a plane, red wine was as good for you as water and people stopped saying he looked like Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jason Bateman or the guy from the League also named Kevin. 


Born & raised in Long Island, he is a self-proclaimed “Serial Entrepreneur” but nothing stuck until ASSC. The passion he found through creating this company, building the culture and providing for the community is something he can’t fully describe. He is always striving for new ways to connect ASSC with the different parts of Atlanta. He empowers people to run with new ideas and his overall positive energy makes for an energetic, exciting work environment. His hope is to continue to be able to get people off their couch or phones, get them outside, and interacting face to face! 


A big fan of NFL & MLS, it’s no surprise you can find him at most ATLUTD or Falcons games (especially if that includes  traveling). A big music lover as well, his favorite concerts have been Dave Matthews Band at Red Rocks, U2 at Joshua Tree, Pink Floyd at Giants Stadium and Zac Brown at Tabernacle. Most of his downtime is spent playing with his two kids. If not, he is watching Cheaters, Cops or Top Gear. Be warned, don’t let him into Best Buy without a budget...it could end badly for your bank account. His personal motto: make it happen (which also happens to be one of the company's core values). 


If you see Kevin...well anywhere, buy him a slice of pizza, especially if it’s NY style.
