Phyllis Mullins Anderson (1983)
General Manager and Corporate President
meet the staff

Daughter of company founders Mr. and Mrs. Phillip P. Mullins, Phyllis is the visionary behind Mullins Special Occasions. She began working with her brother Kevin in 1983, serving as bookkeeper when the party and equipment stores were combined into the 800 Holmes Avenue location. Phyllis saw potential in the Party and Events industry and founded what is now known as Mullins Special Occasions.

Phyllis holds a Bachelor's in Business Administration from Faulkner University and also is a Certified Rental Manager (CRM), having completed that curriculum at Appalachian State University. She is the wife of E. Philip Anderson, and has two adult children and ten grandchildren. Phil and Phyllis enjoyed riding motorcycles with the Christian Motorcyclist Associates, and Phyllis now spends quite a bit of time traveling with friends and family. Phyllis can be reached by e-mail at phyllis@mullinsrentals.com.

Philip Anderson (1996)
Operations Manager, Corporate Secretary/Treasurer
meet the staff

Having grown up around the rental business, Philip shows no stress in making your event rentals go smooth. Philip joined the Mullins team in 1996, when he began as a part-time Delivery and Yard Assistant. He quickly found out that event rental was in his blood and joined the staff full-time later that year, advancing through the ranks to his current position as Operations Manager. Whether it's an intimate dinner for two or a festival of thousands, Philip can help plan every aspect of your event!

Philip holds certifications from rental-specific programs such as Top-Tec Tent School, and has earned a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Faulkner University and has completed seminary coursework from Slidell Baptist Seminary. Philip and his wife Heather have three children with whom they enjoy spending time. They are volunteers with the local Cub Scouts and are active members of Willowbrook Church, where they teach preschool sunday school and adult Life Groups.  Philip and Heather have published numerous articles as well as a personal poetry book. Philip can be reached by e-mail at philip@mullinsrentals.com.

James "JB" Baker (2010)
Warehouse Foreman, Sanitary Items

Shirley Jones (1998)
Washroom Supervisor
meet the staff

If you've ever wondered who handles all the dirty dishes and linens returned from special events, look no further:  Ms. Shirley Jones is the woman for the job! Shirley began as a Washroom Assistant in 1998 and now supervises the same department. She has read up on all the stain-fighting techniques and can remove almost any stain from our fabric inventory. Shirley oversees a crew of up to four people who all team up to make sure your linens and dishware are sanitized and ready to use when you receive them.

Shirley is a proud mother, sister, and grandmother, and enjoys spending time with all her grand kids when not fighting stains at Mullins. Since she also serves as a backup for other departments, she has earned the nickname "Super-Shirley."

Deneen Calavitta (2005)
Dishware Prep
meet the staff

Deneen Calavitta joined Mullins Special Occasions in 2005 and was "thrown into the fire," as we sometimes say, during one of our busiest times of the year. Deneen works with a team of up to 4 people who keep both dishware and linens in tip-top shape for your event. Every individual piece of dishware, flatware, or linen passes through this department for inspection, sanitation, and maintenance as it is returned from your event.

Deneen is the mother of four sons: John, Mark, Joshua, and Peter. When not ironing your tablecloths or playing Mom, Deneen is an avid Atlanta Braves fan and also enjoys horseback riding.

Jimmie McCrary (2013)
Warehouse Foreman, Hard Items
meet the staff
Josh Manning (2010)
Tent Specialist
meet the staff

Josh Manning was thrown into the fire as the spring rush began in 2010. He proved himself by quickly learning both equipment AND procedures, and quickly mastered the position of Warehouse Supervisor. Josh not only stored, cleaned, and maintained the equipment, but he learned the canopies in such a way that it was only natural for him to take over as our Tent Specalist.

Josh has a son and daughter who makes life...well...interesting!  When not slinging tables at Mullins, Josh and his family can be found dropping a line in the Tennessee River.
