Our founders, Bunmi Giwa-Bello and Casandra Mead, met in college in Massachusetts and started their first event production company in 2002. They shared a passion for events and a drive to succeed that would eventually separate them as they followed their paths to opposite coasts. While Bunmi set roots in NYC, Casandra built her career in San Diego.
Bunmi was a top producer at a large production company for 11 years, has worked in all of New York City’s best venues, and has collaborated with the event industry’s top professionals. Over the last decade, she contributed to some of the most impressive events in Manhattan and her experience producing these intricate, large-scale projects has positioned her as one of the top producers in NY. With the support of a tribe of designers and event pros that believe in her, she decided it was time to start a company that is able to create events without limitations.
Casandra has 15 years of experience in business development and marketing and has worked with tech start ups, large corporations, and small businesses. Her experience working with cutting edge technology, complex marketing campaigns, and venture capital funding has made her a fast-thinking leader. She was an independent consultant for several years and helped many people build their businesses, and founded a 501-c3 non-profit in CA that taught free yoga programs in public schools. She produced events for the charity and her clients, and that was always one of her favorite aspects of her job. When Bunmi invited her to co-found BlackHouse she immediately accepted and relocated to NYC to get to work.
Since starting in August 2016, BlackHouse has worked with incredible agencies and giant brands. Our business has grown quickly but organically and we owe it all to the BlackHouse tribe.
