Roger Helms - Founder and CEO

Professional Bio

Roger Helms serves as Founder and CEO of HelmsBriscoe. In 1992, Roger, a sales executive with the Registry Hotel Group, realized how much Clients could benefit from the industry knowledge that he and others like him had gained over the years to help them find the right meeting venues with the best possible contracts and rates. He seized this moment to create HelmsBriscoe and, since its inception, Roger has spent each day driving the organization's vision and culture.

Today, HelmsBriscoe is the highest volume purchaser in the meetings and event industry and boasts the most expansive and experienced network in the market with 1,200 Associates operating in more than 55 countries. In 2014, HelmsBriscoe experienced the strongest year in the company’s more than 20-year history. A record $1.075 billion dollars in group room revenue was booked, representing 5.45 million room nights and more than 42,000 programs in 100 countries worldwide.

Prior to embarking on his career in the industry, Roger was a graduate of Oklahoma State University where he was an active member in the Sigma Chi Fraternity, and recently was recognized as a Significant Sig. Roger began his career in the hospitality industry working front desk at the Ramada in Stillwater, Oklahoma while he was still in college. Roger has three children with his wife and high school sweetheart, Darla, and he takes great pride in watching his children grow and supporting them in accomplishing their personal and professional goals.
