EVSuite Team

Nicole Chavez
Founder & CEO

Nicole is an event-planning machine. With over 15 years under her belt of event coordination and organization, she has refined the entire process to an art form. Nicole derives inspiration from her interior design and project management backgrounds, and employs many everyday tools and processes while planning her events.

After starting her own Interior Design business in 2007, she began to refine her project management tools and started applying these ideas to her other love, event planning. In 2010, Nicole founded Wedding Day Hostess, a full-service Wedding Planning firm, after seeing the need for Wedding Coordinators. While working with clients she created a fun-to-use platform to achieve the ultimate goal: a perfect, worry-free event.

Manuel leads all operations at EVSUITE as COO. With more than 20 years of experience in IT management, Manuel is responsible for maximizing the value customers get from its data and technology. Ensuring that all users of EVSUITE have the best experience possible is Manuel’s daily goal.

Manuel took the plunge in 2005 and moved to California, seeking larger opportunities to manage systems. At XOJET, he was the Senior Systems Engineer primarily responsible for designing and implementing the infrastructure which provided 100% uptime for the company. He founded Vhantom LLC in 2010 to bring enterprise level virtual IT solutions to small and medium businesses. When Nicole was working every weekend doing events, he knew her vision of helping clients would come to fruition sooner rather than later.
