Zane Tharp

Event Manager

Location: Columbia

I am from Batesburg/Leesville. I went to school in Pelion, studied Anthropology, Latin, Chinese and Mandarin (for pazazz) in Charleston. I have been with Southern Way for 5 years. I started as Event Floor Staff and moved up to one of our Lead Event Managers.

I love having the opportunity to talk to different people and network with others during events. Seeing the client and their guests happy and satisfied with how the event went at the end of the night is truly rewarding.

One of my fondest memories is from a wedding I catered several years ago. The event was sooooo stressful but ended up being the most fun night, ever. The client pulled all of the staff working onto the dance floor with her and told us she wanted us to have just as much fun as she and the guests were having! It was Epic!

When I’m not at work I enjoy gardening, gaming, and spending time with my pets and geckos.
