Choura Events Positions as Premier Event Rental Agency in Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES, CA – February 5, 2014 – Ryan Choura, CEO of Choura Venue Services, announces today a plan to strategically realign its rental and food & beverage divisions in order to best service its clients and the growing demands in the marketplace. Effective immediately, Ryan Choura will become CEO of Choura Events, a full service boutique event rental and tenting agency based in Los Angeles, CA, while Executive Vice President Jim Choura will become CEO of Choura Venue Services, a catering and venue management operation based in Long Beach, CA. The organizations will operate independently under this new ownership structure.
Both Choura Events and Choura Venue Services are confident in the decision to separately develop their individual business identities in response to increased industry expectations and standards. “At the age of 21, I was given the opportunity of a lifetime to grow our family business,” says Ryan Choura. “Moving forward, I’d like to become an event company that isn’t tied to a single venue or single caterer, but rather a partner that is able to provide the best resources in order to consistently create great events.”
In the wake of the company’s largest year in its four-decade history, Jim Choura comments, “With more focus devoted to each business’ growth steps, operational efficiencies, and effective sales strategies, we feel our objectives will be more achievable.” He continues, “I’m happy Ryan will be able to focus on what he is passionate about.”
Recently named a Los Angeles Business Journal Top 100 Fastest Growing Private Company, Ryan Choura has built a team of highly specialized event professionals that offer a range of services, including rentals, tenting, project management and more. He continues, “This decision solidifies our commitment to being the go-to event partner for planners, caterers, brides, venues, corporations and industry professionals.”
