Coral Turner
Sr. Director of Operations

As a hospitality professional with over ten years of food and beverage experience, Coral’s keen ability to anticipate needs makes her the best service person in the house. While in Las Vegas, she worked alongside Master Sommelier Jaimie Smith and celebrity chef Rick Moonen, creating innovative cocktails for the most discerning palates from around the globe. She later served as the Beverage Director at the historic Yamashiro Restaurant in Hollywood before creating and launching the “model staff” division for Party Staff. Coral claims she’s a “performing artist with no artistic talent,” but we all know Coral’s true claim to fame is her art of hospitality.

Stacy Cullington
Producer

Stacy is a highly innovative producer with seven years of experiential marketing experience. Playing an integral role in a wide range of events from conferences and athletic competitions, to large scale tours. Through her diverse experiences, she has worked with brands across many different industries such as Toyota, Honda, MINI, Red Bull, Nike & Salonpas.  In her spare time she is snowboarding, trying new food and travelling.

Earnest Sturm
Founder

Born in Russia, Ernest Sturm developed an entrepreneurial spirit early in life inherited from his father. As a businessman himself, Ernest learned first-hand the mechanics needed for success.

Ernest began his career interning for Daniel Flores who paved the path and became a mentor surrounding the events industry. Daniel Flores worked directly with Brent Bolthouse who then was partnered with SBE Productions. Gaining experience handling staffing for Flores and Bolthouse he quickly saw a void in the market and decided to pursue that opportunity.

At the age of 21 Ernest created Runway Waiters – a unique agency providing runway and high fashion models skilled in bar-tending, serving, hosting and brand ambassadors. His clients began to request not only model staff but the “runway expertise “to produce entire events. Runway Collective was founded to execute special events for the world’s top brands and talent.
