What if you could have the kind of holiday event that guests talked about for years to come? What about creating a launch party that lands you on the cover of coveted magazines?

Who is Christina Matteucci?

Christina Matteucci spearheads David Beahm Experiences as the #2 person behind the celebrity event designer. She’s serving her 19th year in collaboration with David as his executive director, skillfully carrying out unimaginably complex functions worldwide. She gives credit to her theater training at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts for her ability to dream up and produce splendid event experiences for clients.

As executive director, Christina encourages an innovative and deeply collaborative workplace and champions egalitarian business practices. Due to her team-building expertise, she counsels emerging professionals just starting their careers as well as CEOs who want to incorporate cooperative, harmonious cultures within their own business. In the process, she earned herself the nickname TeucciMama.

Christina has also enjoyed global speaking opportunities in the special events industry and has captivated and inspired audiences with humor and a straightforward, self-effacing approach. At TEDx in November 2019, she even shared the Bostonian stage with the First Lady of Iceland, Eliza Reid. Currently, you can find her on her website or on Instagram.
