Julia Buckton
Senior Production Coordinator

I put purpose into practice by…

viewing my world as a glass half full.

Julia works alongside the AJ production team on a variety of projects and she creates opportunities by anticipating client needs and meeting their expectations. She graduated from DePaul University with degrees in Theatre Management and Business Administration.

Julia excels in collaborating with her fellow teammates and building lasting relationships with colleagues and clients. She has extensive management experience overseeing staff from a variety of backgrounds in the convention industry. At McCormick Place Convention Center, Julia oversaw a variety of legacy and new events, such as the Chicago Auto Show, Comic Con, and President Obama’s Farewell Address.

You can always catch Julia working with a smile on her face. In any position she turns to the sage words of Zig Ziglar to remind her that “it is your attitude, not your aptitude, that determines your altitude.”

When asked why she loves working at AJ, Julia said, “The atmosphere and culture August Jackson creates for its employees is stimulating. The AJ team works hard to form a culture of collaboration, excellence, and a thoughtful path for widespread growth—and I am excited to build off of this strong foundation.”
