Rich Crabtree has over 15 years of rental industry experience and has demonstrated a track record of building successful rental companies in various markets. He began his rental career as the owner of Party Plus in Atlanta GA in 2002 and the company eventually expanded into the Charlotte market and was sold to Classic Party Rentals. Rich then became Executive VP of Operations for Classic Party Rentals overseeing multiple locations and acquisitions throughout the southeast. In 2014, he had the opportunity to become the general manager for Party Reflection’s Raleigh location and is extremely proud of the 99% employee retention rate the Raleigh location achieved during his tenure at Party Reflections. Rich decided to buy the assets of EventHaus in late 2016 and is very excited about working with such a smart, energetic team in the Charleston, SC area and beyond.
Prior to the rental business, Rich founded a successful music management company based in Charleston that owned various music copyrights and managed all business aspects of a major label recording artist. The music catalog was sold to EMI Publishing in 1999 and included three top ten ASCAP certified radio hits as well as four RIAA certified gold and platinum records. As a point of educational reference, Rich holds a BS degree in Business Finance, a MA degree in Quality Management, and is a third generation Gamecock.
