Who We Are

Elite Special Events is a family-owned company established by two partners that truly know the entertainment industry.  Ted Holcomb and Tom Moore grew up playing sports together and have formed one of their best teams yet in Elite Special Events.  They have learned the value of hard work and the importance of working well as a team.  They are great team leaders and have earned the respect of their workers and clients and it shows at their events.  “Elite is like a well-oiled machine when they arrive to an event, its obvious the staff has been trained well.” (client)

President Ted Holcomb has owned and operated a successful festival company called “Fiesta de Carnival” for more than 20 years and is now bringing this carnival-like atmosphere to the corporate world.  After doing the grind of the three-day festivals for many years, Holcomb saw an opportunity to also do other events for cities for Halloween, 4th of July, Cinco de Mayo and other holiday promotions.  This also led to school carnivals and most recently organizing Snow Day Events  for cities and companies that has taken off.  They now do more then 15 Snow Day events in the month of December each year.  Holcomb has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Cal State University – Long Beach in Marketing and Journalism.

CEO Tom Moore is bringing his previous job experience as operations manager of Paramount Studios and the Hollywood Bowl to help make Elite one of the most professional and safe shows in Southern California. Tom takes pride in putting together a friendly staff that clients love to work with.  Tom has a Bachelor of Arts degree from USC in Communications and still helps out with the USC Football team where he is in charge of media credentials and organizing post-game interviews.
