Maya Kalman is the Founder & CEO of SWANK Productions, New York's most fashionable luxury wedding planning, event design and production company. Maya has planned and designed large and small-scale events for some of the top brands and personalities in New York City and around the world. "It has been an exciting few years...going from my home office to events around the world." Said Maya about her years in the business. Voted “Best of the Best” Event Planners in NYC by the Knot Magazine, Master Planner by Gotham Magazine and the exclusive event company of many of New York’s finest locations, Maya Kalman has propelled Swank Productions to become one of the most exciting couture event firms in the country.
Maya has always had an eye for style and a head for business, but the airing of her own wedding on the Food Television Network was the genesis of her next business move. Combining her marketing, communications and design talents, along with her budding notoriety in the event planning space, Maya launched SWANK Productions in 2001, "I had always thought about starting a company, and after the Food TV appearance, the timing was right and I took the leap." Says Maya.
Today, Maya has grown Swank Productions into an internationally recognized, trendsetting company. In addition to her huge client base of socialites, business mogul and teens who has seen it all, Maya’s expertise is often called on to consult for some of the country’s top marketing and PR firms, new and hip locations and is a frequent media guest for television, radio, print and online networks.
