With more than 80 employees managing live entertainment, experiential activation and creative services, most of our clients don’t meet some of the men and women who make projects possible. James Raven is typically one of them - the smart, quiet, creative type.

A little more than five years ago, James Raven began his career at JHE. As a student at UNC-Charlotte, he interned for JHE in 2007 and after graduation earned a full-time position at the event experience company.

Prior to JHE, the Aquarius juggled several jobs through college including assistant manager at a pool, waited tables and sold furniture at Furniture World.
