About Us

The Milan Group was founded in 1997 by Ms. Zola Thurmond, CEO/President with the initial objective to provide Meeting and Event Planning Support Services to the Southeast Region of the USA. As the client base needs have grown and become more diversified, so has the service capabilities of Milan to meet this challenge. The Milan Group now delivers a full range of consulting services.
