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 to Event Partnership and expanded to sell and service sponsorships across the Western U.S. 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.
