CEO & Founder
An eye — and ear — for distinct style and detail
"A great event always starts with a creative concept," says Allison Sargent, founder and CEO of Allison Sargent Events. "No matter what you’re dreaming of, it's our job to bring that concept to life.”
Whether it’s an intimate gathering or grand-scale corporate event, Allison Sargent Events creates a custom experience that’s rich in detail and full of personality. From sourcing the perfect venue to designing the lighting and décor, ASE works with the top vendors in the industry to plan, produce and execute memorable and personalized events throughout the metropolitan area and across the world.
Allison began her career in the fashion office of Lord & Taylor's flagship New York City location, as the director of color and fabric, responsible for global color and fabric direction. Working frequently in the European market, she developed a knack for working internationally. She went on to produce large-scale special events to launch the retailer's highly successful merchandising program. With a flair for high-end productions, Allison leveraged the skills, expertise and alliances she developed at the retail icon, and opened Allison Sargent Events in 1991. She and her team have been raising the bar for perfection ever since. With ASE at the helm, clients know they can relax and enjoy as their event unfolds.
