LEADERSHIP

Kimberly KrouseDirector of Talent Relations/Partner
In this business, celebrity attendance and strong media relationships can make or break an event. Kimberly Krouse has spent the last decade building a wide network of contacts.

As it turns out, KK’s diverse background of international business, Internet marketing, and high end fashion, were all important building blocks for creating the perfect red carpet quarterback! A former model herself, Kimberly oversees red carpet arrivals, celebrity wrangling efforts, and is our press agent with the entertainment media.

In addition, Kimberly works closely with several of the top public relations agencies in the world, producing electronic press kits that are distributed internationally following the conclusion of our events. She has interviewed some of the biggest names in entertainment, including Oprah, Usher, Jennifer Lopez and Yoko Ono.
