Hospitality Professionals Who Care Deeply

Great Performances represents a diverse family of event professionals, partners and clients with whom we have built long standing relationships and continually draw inspiration from, and we are constantly recruiting to ensure we can meet each of our clients’ unique needs and goals.

Each member of our event and service staff is trained under our proprietary GP University program, ensuring consistent, reliable, and impeccable service.

COMPANY LEADERSHIP

I founded Great Performances with the goal of nurturing New York's community of artists, singers, writers, painters, and dancers to help them achieve their goals while creating truly special events for each of our clients. I am pleased to introduce you to those who make Great Performances great. Please take a minute to meet the team.
