Kristin Grapentin

Talent Buyer

Kristin Grapentin started with Neste Event Marketing in August 2015 after graduating from Michigan State University with a bachelor’s degree in communication and a specialization in public relations. A self-proclaimed student of the industry, Kristin pursued internship opportunities while in college that would expose her to different avenues of the business and would help secure her future in Nashville — this included event planning and festival production with Funfest Productions, program development at CMT, radio exposure with Townsquare Media, and public relations duties at Essential Broadcast Media.

Since joining the Neste team, Kristin has gained much experience learning extensively about talent buying and has since taken the reigns to book small venues on her own. She works on various other tasks as well, including assisting on festivals, publishing Neste’s quarter newsletter and re-establishing the company’s blog.
