The Stagetime Team


James Gottfried
Event Planner/Graphic Designer

James has over 8 years experience as an event planner and also 20 years experience as a graphic designer. He has worked with Stagetime Productions since it's inception.

James went to school for graphic design. He started his career in advertising design and then expanded into website layout and design, video editing and additional graphic design work, including logo design, full color catalogs, banner/poster design, and digital design including powerpoint and social media. James also worked with a publishing company designing advertisements and had been with them for 16 years.

James started his event career as a volunteer for the several non profits galas. After a couple years, he started taking lead positions with the silent auction and found smoother and more efficient ways for them to achieve a more successful fundraiser. In 2003, James was one of the first people to join Stagetime Productions, working as a stage manager, graphic designer and silent auction coordinator.

James became an event planner in 2010. Some of his biggest projects to date are the Walk To End Hunger (event planner), A Night to Bel13ve Gala (registration lead), SuperBowl 52 (assistant producer) and Diamond Awards (auction lead). He enjoys the ever changing, always challenging, environment and finds satisfaction working with both non profit organizations and corporate clients to produce extraordinary events.
