Our founder, Adeola is an accomplished professional with experience rooted deeply within the sports and entertainment industry. From the 2012 London Olympic Games to Super Bowl LIII , those are just a few of the marquee brands she has worked with after graduating from Georgia State University’s School of Hospitality. Her work ethic and determination opened the doors for her to manage several venues within Atlanta’s downtown convention district over the last decade. Not only does she have a knack for working with people, Adeola is a savvy negotiator leveraging her skills to generate $1MM+ in revenue annually.

In 2019 Adeola sought to combine her business acumen with legal expertise; taking several courses including trademark law, employment discrimination, and mediation practicum in order to pursue her masters at the University of Georgia School of Law. Adeola has since completed the Master in the Study of Law (MSL) program and is currently a registered mediator through the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution.
