Team of IMPACT Collective
Founder & CEO
In 1997, Eddie Fam began his career in event management as a student at George Mason University where he booked The Roots for one of his first music festivals. In 2000, Eddie signed a local band named SEV to a major record deal with Jimmy Iovine and Geffen Records. This landed them a commercial for Pepsi Blue which aired during the MTV Music Video Awards. In 2001, Fam helped coordinate a fundraising campaign for Coptic Orphans which generated more than $1 million dollars for vulnerable children in Egypt. In 2005, Eddie was selected for Bono’s ONE Campaign to serve as a US Delegate at the G8 Summit to promote the “Commission for Africa”. As Eddie continued to excel in his career, he decided to create his own event production company in 2009 – IMPACT Collective. Humbly starting his business from the inside of a Panera, Eddie began managing several types of events such as weddings, galas, concerts, conferences, corporate, and non-profit fundraisers. Eddie’s greatest passion is serving as the Founder of Meant 2 Live Foundation, an organization that has impacted more than 2,500 impoverished youth in Washington, DC, Virginia, and Zambia, Africa. Fam also launched a ministry called Splendor Productions which utilizes the universal power of music to inspire individuals living in poverty, prisons, and with addictions around the world.

I've worked with Impact Collective many times and they are not only exceptional at what they do their team is incredible to work with! Highly recommend them!
The best! You won't find another team of professionals that is more passionate, devoted, honest and hard working then the Impact team. Great people, great work... they'll be the best decision you'll make. -Cara Bowen and the Suburban Video team.
If you are looking for a wedding coordinator - look no further! IMPACT is very professional, always on time, in total control of the wedding, and is fun to work with! As a wedding vendor I was impressed with Eddie since he was really on top of everything during the wedding day, as well as before the wedding when he came with the clients to book my services. I would highly recommend IMPACT as an event planner!
