David Ruiz // Supervisor, Event Production
David’s career began when he went to his first experiential event at age 15. Since then he has been sharpening his skills in marketing, sponsorships, client services and event management. After a decade in the field, David comes with a trophy case of his own, helping build many show-stopper campaigns that have caught the eyes of leading industry publications, such as Chief Marketer and Billboard Marketing. Some of David’s favorite events have been with national teams like Argentina, Iceland, Colombia, Brazil and, of course, the U.S. When David is not in charge of producing once-in-a-lifetime event experiences, he enjoys traveling to new places and spending time with his wife and their dogs Juneau and Charlie.
