Steven’s journey with 402 Events is a true coming of age story. Since high school and college, he has been known to throw crazy parties for some of his closest friends. Steven started 402 Event Services in 2016 and started out in the basement of his dad’s office, where the inventory was small and the employee list even smaller. Since then, he has grown to include a multitude of custom production rentals and 20+ staff. Steven’s genuine love of events came from helping his late uncle with custom holiday lighting for events, grew into wild college parties, and today he owns his own event planning and production company. Outside of work, he is married to his beautiful wife Kati and has two dogs. His favorite work is “Epic” and will use it to describe memorable experiences, or just about anything for that matter. But, Steven’s best characteristics are his passion, drive, and ability to accomplish just about anything he has set for himself.
Colleen wasn’t always an event planner. She actually has a degree in criminal justice but realized she loved planning life events more. Her organizational style (and also love language) is Asana, and if you know her, you know she appreciates good task management software. You can usually find Colleen cheering on Creighton basketball at a local bar, hanging out with friends, or listening to celebrity husband Nial Horan in her car. We at 402 Events love Colleen most for her excitement and her big heart for everyone else.
Kel is the “Ron Swanson” of the company. When he isn’t in his office or on-site at events, he enjoys golfing with friends and bowling. If he had one superpower he would choose cross-species linguistics, which we assume would be to talk to dogs since he loves them so much. Anything else you’d like to know about Kel is, “on a need to know basis.”
Lindsey is our resident cheerleader/go-getter in the office! She is there when the impossible seems out of reach and makes sure those dreams that you have for your event come true. Lindsey grew up planning her own themed birthday parties and has since then graduated from The University of Nebraska with a Bachelors of Arts in Hospitality with a focus in Event Planning. Her preferred method of task management is goal setting and is all about a good list of milestones to attain those goals for you. Along with the world of events, she loves her fur baby Jasper that she shares with her loving man, James. She also enjoys a good horoscope talk and helping others find their mood balance, which is oh-so-necessary during those stressful planning moments. She’ll help ease your mind and also bring the fun back into event creation!
Nick, aka NickyFresh, is the definition of calm, cool, and collected. If Nick isn’t in the office, he is out taking photos of nature or on the golf course. In the past, Nick has managed warehouses and employees, and his favorite aspect of events is seeing bare spaces come to life. If you think a hot dog is considered a sandwich, then you have something in common with Nick.
Jordan is full-time at King of Kings Church and makes dream weddings come true on the side! Some of Jordan’s favorite things include her family of three, her fur babies, Starbucks coffee, and Buffalo print. She loves building relationships with everyone she meets. If you need a best friend while planning your event, Jordan is the perfect person because she will be there for the best moments and will also be truthful and honest when you need it.
