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.
Director of Operations
Christine thrives on the unequivocal pace of new ventures as well as organizing the chaos that ensues. With over 16 years of experience in business operations and human resources, she is an operational veteran. She holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and criminology, as well as Master’s level certificates in Project Management and Homeland Security Management.
As IMPACT’s Director of Operations, she is excited to use her expertise in workflow analysis and business strategy. Christine’s motto: “Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.” (Romans 12:9,10) Christine uses this as motivation in her service as Director of Operations of Meant 2 Live Foundation.
Senior Wedding Planner
Ari’s passion for event planning was born from her personal journey as a cancer survivor. While home recovering from Metastatic Papillary Thyroid Cancer, Ari made it her mission to help other survivors by supporting fundraising events for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This work led to a six-year full-time job in event planning with a non-profit founded by Washington Redskins Coach, Joe Gibbs, called Youth For Tomorrow, a home for at-risk children.
Ari soon realized that she loved the fulfillment that came from creating custom celebrations for social and corporate events. Today, Ari and the IMPACT team help clients celebrate and commemorate life’s most joyous occasions. Each event is a direct reflection of her mantra of living life to the fullest!
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!
