DeNeitra Burnett, MBA

CEO & Founder •

Meet the Chief Executive Officer and head creative logician behind Savvy Events. Fueled by a long-standing love for a good party, DeNeitra’s innate understanding of what it takes to produce beautifully executed events and occasions packs a powerful punch.

Upon completing her events internship for the Zagat Survey in NYC and in tandem with earning her MBA, she launched Savvy Events. Her eye for excellence and ability to deliver a stellar production has landed her in high-demand and filled her days with plotting, planning, designing, and producing.

In addition to the standard ins and outs of planning and production, DeNeitra is adept and well-versed with budget creation, securing event sponsorship, and managing multi-day events. She is a proud alumnus of Howard University in our nation’s capital where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and she holds an MBA from California State University, San Bernardino.

When DeNeitra is off the clock, she’s all about family and counts her blessings daily. Life is good, so let’s celebrate!
