WE MAKE THE RENTAL PROCESS

THE EASIEST TASK ON YOUR TO-DO LIST


At our core: we’re family. Manning the helm, is husband-and-wife duo, Cyndi & Darrin. Back in 2008, they sought to make the rental process easier. Having been in the events industry for quite some time, they noticed that the process was complicated and the product collections were stagnated.

For over a decade, our team has worked together with you in mind. Making sure to arrive on time with our impeccable items in tow, and responding to your questions faster than you can ask them – just to name a few. Behind the scenes, we are consistently updating our inventory to include items that meet the trends of today, and the trends of tomorrow.

Our daily mission is to provide you with superior event rentals that’ll bring your event to life, and customer service that honors your time & excitement. We understand how intense the event planning process can be, plus it’s not every day you’re having to rent furniture! Our professional team of event rental experts is here to lend a helping hand and guide you from inquiry to booking with intentional recommendations & helpful tips so that you’re confident with your selections.

We’re known to crack jokes (at least we think we’re funny), celebrate fun-but-random holidays in our office, gush over event photos, and give American-Idol-worthy performances while we work.

MEET THE TEAM

Cyndi S, Owner & President

This southern gal is truly the hub of our operation. Wearing her heart on her sleeve, Cyndi cares for her employees & business, alike. She makes sure that all company operations are running smoothly, and she’ll make sure you’re having a great day– if you’re not, Cyndi will be sure to bring her pup, PJ, to the office. Prior to starting OWPR back in 2008, Cyndi used to teach piano, proving she’s a dynamo that can sport many hats. And boy does she!

On a daily basis Cyndi is either overseeing weekly operations, ordering supplies, planning for new products, attending an industry event, or honestly, some combination of all the above. Cyndi’s true love, aside from her husband and two children, is chocolate! So, with the bits of free-time she carves out for herself, she likes to hang with her gal-pals and sample the latest restaurants & their desserts, exercise with her dog in tow, and travel around the globe.

Darrin S, Owner & Vice-President

The wizard behind the curtain; Darrin handles OWPR’s business development and sales team. It’s a rare sight to see him out at an event, but that’s because he’s putting his nose to the grindstone, searching for new items to add to OWPR’s collection. To keep our collection fresh, Darrin keeps up with the industry’s trends and the needs of our vendors. Therefore, allowing us to offer our clients unique event rentals that give their events flair & personality!

When he’s not treasure hunting for the next great furniture piece, or putting together a personalized quote request, he’s watching the Yankees dominate the field, and playing with his dog, PJ – affectionately named after Pearl Jam (Darrin’s true love, second only to his wife and children, of course).

Brittney B, Event Consultant

Brittney is among OWPR’s first team of employees, making her an OG. She’s seen it all– our growth, three or so offices, and the ever-changing trends of the events industry. Brittney graduated from UCF with a degree in Event Management. Today, she uses her schooling & years of industry experience to provide clients with a personalized experience composed of thoughtful suggestions, extensive product knowledge, efficient & organized booking– just to name a few!

Among her many achievements, Brittney was recently inducted as the President of the Orlando NACE Chapter! It’s an honor to work with a celebrity… 😉 Now, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that this girl hails from Buffalo, NY and loves all things ‘Buffalo, NY’. Even people. So if you’re from that area, consider yourself Brittney’s new BFF. Bonus points if you love cute coffee shops as much as she does!

Alexis M, Marketing Manager

If you’re familiar with the Enneagram test, Alexis is a Type 4. For those that are currently scratching their heads, Type 4’s tend to appreciate the beauty in all things — which is why she fits in so well as our Marketing Manager! Alexis works diligently to make sure our branding, and visual presence looks super pretty, and reflects what we’re about. On her to-do list, you’ll find scribbles reminding her to update our website, plan our next photo shoot, approve upcoming content, and more. Before all this, Alexis graduated from UCF with degrees in History & Anthropology. So to (finally) put them to good use, she manages our Vintage Collection, as well. 

In our office, Alexis is self-titled as the “funny friend,” always having a joke to crack. She’s also affectionately known as an “encyclopedia,” always having a random fact to share. When she’s not sharing her talents with us at the office, she’s either watching a movie at home with her two cats, Oliver & Piper, singing her heart out in her car, or planning her next trip!

Ron G, Operations Manager

He may look tough, but deep down, Ron is a teddy bear. Don’t tell him we told you that! Ron’s tenure in the operations field has given him the psychic ability to pack a truck in his sleep. His transit skills have put procedures in place to ensure our items are cared for from the time they leave our warehouse, to the time they arrive at your event — thus, keeping our promise of high-quality event rentals. Like our other team members, Ron’s number one goal is to go above & beyond for our clients. This work ethic translates to his personal life, as he consistently practices his guitar while making time for his family.

Zach G, Asst. Operations Mgr.

Easily the brightest light on our team, Zach is the heart of our warehouse/ delivery crew. Pretty sure we’ve never seen this guy crack under the pressure… Zach works side-by-side with Ron, assisting with deliveries and tent set-ups. Originally from Indiana, Zach racked up some mileage in the events industry having worked for a tent company in Marion. His knowledge of tents is invaluable to us, and we love having him on our team! Zach is a family man to his core, so after leaving the office, he heads home to spend time with his daughter, Jenny, and his wife. Together, they love going to the beach and watching/ playing soccer.

Christine N, Office Manager

Christine is our office’s mover & shaker — she handles a lot of our orders and front office operations. Don’t be surprised if you stop by and see her collecting food from an Uber Eats driver. That’s just, Christine! Her quirks, her witty humor, her love for Lord of the Rings, and her five years of events industry experience bring a certain je ne sais quoi to our team and we love her for it. Having graduated from UCF with degrees in Event Management & Mass Communications, Christine ensures that our clients receive top-notch service throughout the booking process. Also, while you’re reading this, there’s a good chance she just ordered Uber Eats and is watching Lord of the Rings…

EP-2
Molly B, Event Sales Assistant

Good Golly Miss Molly, will she ever stop Pinterest-ing? That’s 100% a “no.” Molly is a self-certified Pinterest queen, and we love the results of her hobby: an expertly decorated desk, and cute Christmas cards featuring her adorable family, Dave, Madelyn, and Ted. When she’s not on Pinterest, you’ll find her working with Brittney providing clients with unparalleled service, thanks to her 10 years of experience in the biz. Outside of the office, Molly likes to enjoy the latest foodie spots with her husband – especially if there’s sushi involved!

Lynsey P, Event Consultant

What’s an interesting fact about Lynsey? She can quote almost every episode of “Friends.” Could she BE any more obsessed? Nope. So, this is the one about Lynsey…

Lynsey has two older sisters whom she considers to be her best friends and LOVES (yes, all-caps were necessary) dogs! She’s been in the events industry for six years, working at Arthur’s Catering for the same amount of time. Previously, she worked as a paralegal for three years, so she’s one smart cookie.

Here at OWPR, she works diligently to provide each client with personalized service – from the ‘quote request,’ to the day of your event! You’ll find her typing away at her computer, putting together contracts and most likely enjoying a Greek Wrap from Hummus House (her other obsession).

Paola R, Office Assistant

Three cheers to this girl who will be graduating from UCF this Spring! Paola came to Orlando from south Florida, to pursue a degree in Entertainment Management. You can imagine as an entertainment major, she loves her concerts. There are never enough! Just like, there aren’t enough pets in her life. She’s currently living vicariously through everyone else in the office who has pets. So, while she doesn’t have pets of her own – she loves everyone else’s pets.  

Here at OWPR, Paola works with our front office staff to put together quotes & contracts, as well as, provide friendly & attentive customer service. No doubt, you’ve heard her cheery voice on the other end of a phone call to us!

Jaclyn M, Event Consultant

Wave your *mittens* to this Michigan-born gal! Jaclyn graduated from Florida State University with degrees in Fashion Merchandising & Business/ Hospitality. So naturally, Orlando was the perfect fit post-grad. We’re lucky to have her on our team, as well as her years of experience in the Orlando event scene! For us, Jaclyn works one-on-one with clients and helps them through the rental process. She also represents us at bridal shows, and more! She’s a stickler for proper grammar, so hopefully this bio meets her standards! 😉

When she’s not with us at the office, she’s chillin’ with her fur-babies (Farrah, Rambo, Bella, & Charley), groovin’ to some disco music, watching classic movies like Grease (she met the legend herself, Olivia Newton John, when she was 10!), and absolutely NOT doing cardio.
