EVNTeam.

rule-white

EVNT is an eclectic team of problem solvers, story tellers, artists, builders, visionaries, planners and pranksters that share a common approach to achieving a common goal.

We thrive at the intersection of imagination and expertise, where anything is possible.
What sets us apart from the competition is our unwavering commitment to bringing your vision to life. We’ve been called sarcastic (though we prefer playful); we’ve been called talented (though we prefer brilliant); we’ve been called “event”; and well, we prefer EVNT.

We have an incomparable creative team, far-reaching global resources, impeccable technical expertise and the best darn production management team around. Apart from such a stellar network of professionals, we also have our own fabrication shop, our own trucks, our own warehouse, and our own kegerator.

OUR CORE CREW

Rohit Kapoor
CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Rohit Kapoor has a career that spans over two decades within the event production industry. He has a comprehensive background in visual design and technical production, which he cultivated over many years working in theater—both on and off-stage. Upon moving to NYC, Rohit began to freelance, providing services from technical crew during NYFW to scenic design for globally renowned theater companies. Rohit has leveraged these diverse capacities in event production to hold leadership roles across event and theater production. As Director of Events & Creative Services for the Altman Building, Rohit executed events for big name clients such as Red Bull, Microsoft and Porsche.

Rohit’s list of past clients is as extensive as it is varied. What sets him apart from his contemporaries, what makes him a sought after designer by large-scale corporations and boutique businesses alike, is his creative elasticity. He has no signature style; instead is forever reinventing his aesthetic to align with the vision of his clients. As such, he continues to provide fresh, creative and innovative designs. It is his vision, experience, and knowledge of the industry that has led and will continue to lead EVNT to mature; with Rohit at the helm, you can rest assured that your event will be as unique and memorable as it is successful.

Shauna Gray
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR
Upon graduating from Stern Business School at NYU with a degree in Marketing & Management, Shauna demonstrated an innate aptitude as an event planner--first as a Senior Event Coordinator for a New York City based publishing house then as the Marketing & Events Manager for the South Street Seaport. While these experiences engendered an interest in the world of event management, Shauna was eager to start her own business.

Alongside two of her former colleagues, Shauna launched a commercial real estate company, Red Real Estate. Their success in the commercial sector was unprecedented for 3 African American women. Furthermore, working in real estate provided Shauna with the tools to navigate the business of sales, which she harnessed to revitalize the sales department in her new role as Director of Sales & Business Development for The Altman Building. There, Shauna met Rohit Kapoor. In May of 2014, Shauna & Rohit launched EVNT, allowing Shauna to fully actualize her passion for the event industry, sales and business development and her prowess in all three.

Neil Kapoor
FINANCE DIRECTOR
Before graduating Summa Cum Laude with a Masters degree in Finance and Strategic Management, Neil worked collaboratively as a portfolio manager for the Niagara University endowment fund. Upon graduating, Neil began work at a marketing firm in business-to-business sales before switching to IT Administration and Sales at a Debt Brokerage Firm. Complete with a solid background in small business, Neil left to satisfy an increasingly piqued interest in hospitality, opening a celebrated Restaurant & Lounge in his hometown of Buffalo, NY. Next, Neil aims to utilize his skills in Business and Finance as EVNT’s Finance Director.
Rita Wojcik
GENERAL MANAGER
Rita has been growing successful companies for the past decade back in her hometown of Buffalo, NY. It is her knowledge and firsthand experience in how to build a business from the ground up that makes her an integral part of the EVNT team. Rita is consistently the one to call upon to ensure loose ends are tied; in fact, she still receives requests from former employers to help them with their decision-making. In an industry built upon moving parts, Rita works unremittingly to provide a solid foundation.
