Ted Amberg: Founder & CEO
Ted began his career in entertainment in 1991 when he began performing magic professionally at parties. His passion for magic soon led him to create his own booking agency that promoted all types of entertainers, bands, and other unique acts. His focus was to offer companies, schools and churches a complete “turn-key” event package, and that vision continues to evolve today, under the new ownership of Amberg Events.
Ted attended Missouri State University, majoring in marketing and business management. He has written several industry best-selling books and courses that teach other similar companies how to run their companies effectively with a focus on safety, professionalism and marketing. He has been the recipient of several business awards, including the Springfield Business Journals 40 Under 40, Best Place to Work, as well as Springfield’s prestigious Small Business of the Year Award.
Ted believes in giving back to the community and sits on several boards including the Salvation Army, Ozark Regional YMCA, and Camp Wakonda. He is also active in the business community and is a member of the Springfield Executive Breakfast Club and Strategic Executive Partnership Group. In his personal life, he is heavily involved in scouting and serves as assistant Scoutmaster for his sons Boy Scout Troop. Ted has three children, and he enjoys spending time with family, watching movies, reading, and playing golf. You can often find him grilling and smoking meats on the back deck with friends and family.
