Julie Piatek

Hello! I wanted to take this time to introduce myself as the newest addition to the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA). My name is Julie Piatek, and I am estatic to be the 2014 Chicago Auto Show Communications Specialist.

I graduated in May 2013 from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois.  I knew the Chicago Auto Show was for me after interning during the Media Preview days at the 2013 show.  It was great to get a taste for what the show is like, and I can't wait to be a part of everything that goes on before the big show.

I'm a Chicago native, and I grew up attending the Chicago Auto Show.  I have always enjoyed seeing what car manufacturers would come up with next.  I have a passion for Chicago Sports.  I'm a huge White Sox, Bears, Hawks and Bulls fan.  Previously to CATA I worked in the new #SoxSocialLounge for the Chicago White Sox.   In addition to sports I love working out, traveling, and country music.

I am very excited to get started in my new role, and love everything that goes into communications.  I'm ready to get in the "driver's seat" and learn along with work hard in order  help put on a great 2014 Chicago Auto Show.
