Meet Kelly! A southern California native and Loyola Marymount University alum, Kelly has been working in event production for over five years. With a passion and knowledge of music, Kelly works side-by-side with BG’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Head of Entertainment department, Brian Pincus, as executive assistant. Scouting new talent, scheduling band rehearsals, organizing video shoots, coordinating events, and assisting the VP of Sales, Kelly is brilliantly talented at multitasking with a strong work ethic and amazing organizational skills. Kelly’s years as executive assistant has taught her the in’s and out’s of the sales department, which has inevitably resulted in her gradual move into sales. With her moving focus to sales, Kelly can be found creating event decor proposals, writing contracts, and working one on one to meet clients’ visions- all while smoothly executing aforementioned tasks. When she isn’t at her desk, Kelly can be found making an afternoon tea (a nod to years spent in London), enjoying her exercise ball office chair, and sharing pics and vids of adorable golden retriever puppies.

And something to share:
Exploring LA and trying new places is one of my favorite things to do. There are so many hidden gems and so much to do! Here are a few of my favorites:
Live music venue – Hotel Café. It has a super intimate setting and some really good artists come through that stage
Park – Barnsdall Art Park. There’s something about the vibe on that hill that makes you feel like you are in an alternate universe. It’s an extremely positive and whimsical place where anything goes. It’s also the “back yard” of Frank Lloyd Wright’s first LA house project, which is pretty cool.
Summer activity – Santa Monica Pier Twilight Concert Series. There’s a live show on the Santa Monica Pier every Thursday night during sunset in the summer. Tons of people come and picnic on the sand below.
