Todd Hawkins is an innovative event producer and founder/CEO of The Todd Group. Producing hundreds of events annually ranging from charity to corporate to social and entertainment, Todd has quickly become an industry expert and the go-to resource in the field of innovative and creative events in the non-profit sector.

Todd was first introduced to the event industry while attending UCLA. While there, he was given the rare opportunity to produce one of Southern California’s largest music festivals, the UCLA JazzReggae Festival. He led the festival into a new era, incorporating sustainability into the two day event, building and attracting new corporate partnerships and enhancing the event to gain greater participation and revenue. During this time, Todd also completed an exciting internship at Warner Bros. Studio Special Events, where he learned the art of event production and design. These two experiences prompted Todd to form his own event company.

Through hard work, perseverance and determination, The Todd Group has become a leading event firm in Los Angeles.
