Samantha (Sam) joined Event Partnership in January of 2015 after graduating from Sacramento State with her Bachelor's Degree in Communications. During her years with EP she has become a sponsorship-pro and works endlessly to provide a positive experience for all clients that come in contact with EP. She believes that a positive attitude is imperative in the work place and incorporates a can-do mentality to all of her responsibilities. If she isn't working, it's rare that you'll find her in Sacramento but when she isn't traveling, Sam prides herself on being a Midtown resident and enjoys exploring the latest & greatest hot spots in her thriving community!

Event Partnership

Jordan joined the Event Partnership team in May of 2017. A lifetime local of Sacramento, she attended California State University, Chico, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Communications with an emphasis in Public Affairs, and a minor in Agricultural Business. While at CSU Chico, Jordan was an ambassador for Students of Communications and for Agricultural Ambassador, both of which focused on outreach to the community while developing strong relationships with peers. Upon graduation Jordan was hired full-time at Mercury Public Affairs.

Back in 1995, Brian began his career in the professional sports industry as a marketing and ticket salesman for the Golden State Warriors before transitioning into Corporate Sponsorships for the Sacramento Kings.  In 2001, he founded Honebein & Associates when he was awarded the contract to sell sponsorships for the California State Fair. After tremendous success he rebranded the company into the widely esteemed business you see today, Event Partnership, and expanded to sell and service Sponsorships across the Western US. Brian is lucky enough to work every day with his beautiful wife, in which he shares two beautiful, slightly rambunctious, gluten intolerant children, Brielle and Brayden.

Some would say Kimberly joined the EP team when she said "I do" in March 2004. Since then she has been an integral part of all facets of the organization, helping to grow the business with her tireless support and positive attitude.  Kimberly has taken on all administrative responsibilities and keeps EP running and successful behind the scenes. Bored is not in Kimberly's vocabulary; if she isn't researching new and innovative gluten free recipes, she's juggling her kid's ever-changing sports and activity schedule and taking care of the EP team.
