Glam Events was founded by Serine Setrakian, a former finance professional at Oaktree Capital Management, the world’s largest asset manager specializing in distressed debt and one of the most prestigious companies in the world. Prior experience includes Senior Auditor at Deloitte & Touch, the world’s largest accounting firm, where she served large clients in the financial services industry in Los Angeles. Mrs. Setrakian graduated with honors, magna cum laude, from University of Southern California, where she received her bachelor’s degree in accounting.
Serine Setrakian created Glam Events, inspired by the many reputable designers in the wedding industry while she was planning her own wedding. She found comfort in taking the risk to start her own business by the fact that her family has been in the party rentals business for more than 20 years. “To be inspired is truly an amazing feeling, and I have never felt more inspired in my life than today. Don’t get me wrong, throughout most of my career in the professional industry, I was very passionate about my career and inspired to become an executive in the financial services industry, not to mention I was exceptionally good at it. But I was always inspired by the thought of what I would become and not what was in front of me. Today I am inspired by so many beautiful things and talented individuals in the wedding industry.” – Serine Setrakian, 2/25/15
