Our event technology is sourced with your specific requirements in mind, not just what may be in the warehouse – this helps to ensure quality, the right application and fiscal responsibility.
Like most roads on the journey of life, the Manor Hill story is full of twists and turns. This story begins in earnest in 1989, when Randy & Mary Marriner founded Marriner Marketing Communications. With Randy as Chairman & CEO and Mary as CFO of the firm, it ranked 6th in the top regional advertising agency listings and provided world class creative services to a stellar client list that included ARAMARK, Citibank, Coca-Cola, Glaxo Pharmaceuticals, Kellogg’s, Marriott International and many more. Looking for the next entrepreneurial challenge and longing to pursue new business opportunities with their family at the forefront, the Marriners sold the agency to their business partner in 2005.
Mary, Randy, and two daughters (Rachael and Tori) founded Victoria Restaurant Group and opened Victoria Gastro Pub in 2007. In 2011 they purchased and moved to Manor Hill Farm, a 54-acre traditional working farm (home to cattle, chickens, bees, corn, herbs, fruits, and vegetables) in Ellicott City.
In 2015, Manor Hill Brewing was added to the farm operations and later that same year, Manor Hill Productions was added to the family’s portfolio of businesses. Originally branded as MHF Productions, the family started the venture with Mary’s nephew Kenny Eggerl, a 25-year event production professional. In early 2016 Patrick Hand joined the management team to help build the live event efforts. In just their first few years, their client list quickly expanded, their team of professionals grew, and their brand evolved into what you know today as Manor Hill Productions.
Today, Manor Hill Farm, a woman owned business, is home to the largest farm brewery in the state of Maryland, the restaurant group’s corporate operations, and Manor Hill Production’s warehouse and headquarters.
