Lauren Kolivas | Founder & President

Known in the sports and entertainment industry as the go-to, “get-it-done” guru, eLevate’s founder and president Lauren Kolivas has developed an impressive record of success for her clients. Her seamless events and experiences have resulted in over $1B in revenue growth across a variety of industries including financial services, healthcare, and consumer products.


Lauren’s eye for venue design, her creative “can-do” spirit, and her dedication to high-caliber events result in elated clients and exceptional experiences. To name a few: Lauren has helped build out permanent branded spaces within iconic venues, conceptualized and executed cross-country mobile-marketing tours, and produced a “Day-of-Service” with 3,500 clients and professional athletes around New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Most recently, she has created custom content for conferences and events with global thought leaders and top entertainers, planned once-in-a-lifetime experiences such as organizing a group of service members to attend the Super Bowl Halftime show rehearsal with Lady Gaga, transformed a historical museum into a magical eight-course dinner and cooking demonstration with a celebrity chef, and more.


During her tenure as Assistant Director of Special Events and Communications for MetLife Stadium (home of the New York Jets and the New York Giants), Lauren advised the stadium design team in the early conception phases of the building project. The goal was to conceptualize how the space, which was primarily being built for NFL Games and Concerts, could also support a secondary business for private corporate and social events. This initiative would also help meet the hospitality needs of the many high-caliber suite holders and sponsors. Upon the opening of the MetLife Stadium in 2010, Lauren had developed the entire special events and PR strategy, sales and marketing plan, and operations plan for the newly and highly-coveted New York-New Jersey premier venue. In the opening year, she brought in and managed more than 330 events, bringing in more than $5 million in revenue.


Now, through her work with eLevate, Lauren continues to help clients around the world accomplish their business goals with exceptional events that create meaningful memories.
