Staff Spotlight | The Events Team
Two Greater Houston employees who need no introduction are Ashley Reyes and Afton Stone!

Ashley and Afton run our Events Department. Rarely slowing down, they are usually found in the office working hard at their computers or hustling outside running our next big event.

Ashley is our Events Director and began her career at Greater Houston in July of 2014. Afton joined the Greater Houston family in January of 2017. After starting in the bar, Afton was quickly tapped by Ashley to be her right hand lady as an Events Coordinator.

Teaming up with our COO, Kevin Dougherty and Operations Director, Mike Boire, Ashley and Afton form the glue that holds together our corporate event and tournament schedule every year, ensuring each event is memorable and amazing. They deserve a huge and ongoing thanks for their exceptional work in making Greater Houston Sports Club a premier shooting sports complex.
