DAN LEAPHART

Event Manager

As Event Manager, Dan oversees the logistical side of our events. These include sponsorship contracting and activation, permitting, vendor and partner relationships and on-site management. A huge sports junkie who dies for Miami football, Atlanta Braves baseball and Orlando Magic basketball, he equally enjoys listening and talking politics, and watches 60 Minutes and Vice News. Absolutely loving what he does, Dan fully values his professional relationships that have lasted for over a decade long and feels honored to be a part of this amazing team. He is a proud first-time homeowner where he and his wife reside with their beloved morkie pup, Sady. Long flights are preferred, and so far Asia is his favorite continent. He plans on traveling to all seven before setting aside his bucket list.

NATASHA CHRISTMAN

Event & Sales Specialist

Natasha comes to the Cox team with a Bachelor’s Degree in Advertising and Public Relations from the University of Central Florida. As Event & Sales Specialist, she sees her role as the “director of all things chaotic.” With a specific attention to detail and awesome grammar skills, she also assists as Dan’s communication specialist and temporary memory. Consistently creative, cheerful, confident and competitive, she is constantly learning new facets of the business to better serve her team. Obsessed with her long-haired Chihuahua Tila, TV shows and goat cheese, she’s known for her loud laugh and oftentimes can be seen at music concerts and cooking competitively with her co-workers. Her dream is to be Ellen DeGeneres for a day so she could give just as much as she does. And also, world peace.

SHANTAE MARTIN

Creative Media Manager

As Creative Media Manager, Shantae is always on the prowl during our events finding great content to produce for our web site, social media accounts and sponsor recaps. When you interact with Cox Events Group on Twitter, like our post on Instagram or share one of our videos on Facebook, it’s Shantae who’s providing that wonderful content. She also plays a key role as team member of our event production staff. Born in Germany as a military brat, her family originally hails from Jamaica. She enjoys nature, all things music, fashion and art, and while striving to be a successful Events Specialist, also blogs about fashion on a regular basis and looks to continue that initiative later down the road. Travel is super important to her with dream locations to include Italy, France and Spain.

JILLIAN RYAN

Production Assistant

 

Born in Greenville, North Carolina and raised in Fort Myers, Florida, Jillian is an only child with two amazing parents. During free time she plays with her new puppy Cali, binge watches Netflix, likes to go for a hike, reads here and there, is an amateurish photographer and even paints canvases (whew!). Her main goal in life is to have a happy little family and be able to give back to the people who helped her throughout life (so far). Her first day on the job with us was a 12-hour shift with the band Train for a private concert in an airport hangar. Not too shabby.

BRIE GOSSELIN

Production Assistant

Brie comes from Tampa, Florida. She loves the beach, traveling anytime and anywhere, fashion, and being creative pretty much any way, anyhow. Another dog lover of the bunch, Brie has a 3-year-old boxer mix she absolutely adores. A goal of hers is to own and run a small boutique shop with handmade jewelry. It takes all kinds in the world of events, and Brie has found a temporary home with us here at Cox Events Group until she branches out on her own after college ends. Brie has worked in multiple markets with us on several different events.

PREETI RANA

Production Assistant

Hailing from the heartland of India in Dilli (New Delhi), Preeti studied Mass Communication & TV Production while working in several production houses in India. After moving to the United States in 2014, she’s been jostling with American culture ever since. Her passions include digital marketing and creating and maintaining social media campaigns. A lover of Bollywood movies, Ed Sheeran and Adele, Preeti also enjoys eating all types of spicy food, and practices herbalism on weekends at the Florida School of Holistic Living. One day she’ll travel to Europe and her life mantra is A Happy Soul is a Wealthy Soul =)
