New Event Space Will Launch September 2021
Glasshouses announces the appointment of Kevin Ramsawack as director of sales of The Glasshouse. Ramsawack joins the management team of Jack Guttman, Alex Holiday and Megan Lerchenmuller to launch the company’s new flagship event space at 660 12th Avenue in New York City. The new waterfront Glasshouse joins the company’s 13-year-old Glasshouse Chelsea, offering state-of-the art, flexible event spaces with floor-to-ceiling windows, enviable locations and sweeping city views.
Kevin Ramsawack brings more than 20 years of experience in the event industry from his long tenure at Neuman’s Kitchen special event and corporate caterers in New York and Philadelphia. Most recently vice president of sales and events, Ramsawack was responsible for strategic planning and business development along with management of the company’s sales, service and marketing teams.
Among his accomplishments, Ramsawack cites the production of Neuman’s Kitchen’s holiday events at Pier 94 on the West Side Highway, annual symposiums for 1,500 guests at the David Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, the eight-day World Chess Championships at the Fulton Market Building as well as numerous weddings and non-profit events at venues such as the New York Public Library’s Astor Hall and Celeste Bartos Forum.
“We are excited to have Kevin join us as we re-enter the events industry in New York,” says Jack Guttman (pictured left), co-owner. Adds co-owner Alex Holiday, “We’ve collaborated with Kevin for many years and he knows our business and the city very well. Our team is truly full-steam ahead now and our exceptional space is well equipped and ready to meet the needs of the market.”
A resident of Queens, Ramsawack serves on the Long Island City YMCA Board of Directors where he has spearheaded the creation of a youth mentoring program and fundraising for children’s summer camps. He is also a founding member of Vistage Worldwide Executive Key Group, an advisory network for CEOs, owners and executives to grow their businesses. Ramsawack is committed to building businesses, developing talent and fostering connections to community. “I am thrilled to be joining such a forward-thinking team at Glasshouses,” he says. “At a time when New York City is on the rebound, I am excited to share proof that events are back and that the way we are thinking about hosting events continues to evolve.“
