Jeff Anderson

Partner/Director of Revenue Kinetics (DORK), Party Pals

Not your usual bio…my background was in Finance/Real Estate…my mom convinced me to take a different career path and accept an offer from one of my best friends who. In 1994, had started a small interactive game rental company in San Diego.  So, I took my mom’s advice and jumped on the Party Pals train in 1997 and I haven’t looked back since.  I was made a partner in 2011 and absolutely DIG what I do for a living…this industry ROCKS!!!  I served as President of the International Special Event Society (ISES) Los Angeles Chapter from 2006 – 2008 and President of the ISES Orange County CA Chapter 2012-2013. I was lucky enough to be Co-Chair (with Robb Thornsberry) for the Closing Night Event for The Special Event 2017 in Long Beach. He did all the work, I was just a pretty face!!! Prior to that, I was a Co-Chair (also with Robb Thornsberry and Anthony Bollotta) for the Opening Night Celebration for The Special Event 2015 in Anaheim, January, 2015. I was also a Co-Chair of the Opening Night Welcome Party for The Special Event 2009 in San Diego (with Angie Kemp and Tracey Amernick). I guess I've done an OK job...either that, or these guys are just gluttons for punishment asking me to be an Ambassador!!!  See you all in San Diego in 2019!!!
