We’ve been to a lot of events since CMS was founded in 1979. We’ve learned the ins and outs of so many venues throughout the Northwest, and we’ve watched how events and crowds have changed over the decades. Now with our new owners, Jeff and Lynda Nelson, we’ve continued our service as one of the largest and well-respected companies of our kind in the western U.S.
While operations will always be our roots, we also provide consulting services based on our long-term industry knowledge. Beginning in Oregon, providing security services at one location, we’ve grown to providing innovative guest services programs at thousands of events and venues from our five regional offices.
Thorough planning, training, sincere effort, and skillful execution are the reasons we are the most consistently successful guest services provider in the US.
We believe that your reputation and success are measured by the performance of each member of our staff, so we make employee training the center of our service philosophy.
While we always see ourselves as your hosts, we are always at the ready to protect public safety and enforce all regulations and policies.
CMS employees contribute at least 500 volunteer hours to charity events and fundraisers in their communities each year.
Organizations we care about include March of Dimes, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Youth Services, Special Olympics, and World Food Banks.
We donate funds to programs assisting people with special needs and abilities. We also sponsor local community basketball, softball and volleyball teams.
Working with CMS gives you access to exciting events and venues while providing a flexible schedule and compensation above the industry average.
