Panache’s founder and senior partner, Beau Fodor has always considered Iowa home and his return to the state a decade ago found him utilizing his landscape design and Master Gardener background to transform bean fields into exquisite party venues in the Central Iowa area. Suddenly, knowing where the food came from was a powerful as the enjoyable experience food represented. Buying fresh and local isn’t just a saying to Beau but rather a way of doing business and making Panache events different from all the rest. Connecting the “why” not just the “how” of events became his focus.
Beau’s professional background working with executives from Martha Stewart Living, Ralph Lauren/POLO, Better Homes & Gardens, Traditional Home & Christian Dior have groomed him into the unique visionary he has become to be Iowa’s premier event planner.
Making Iowa the headquarters of his business for the last 15 years and with the addition of offices and resources in New Jersey and Central California, Beau is able to work with clients across the country. Beau has also worked for as an ambassador for the state of Iowa, with “IPR” (International Professional Relations, Inc.), an international relocation company, helping John Deere & Principal employees coming from all over the world, to relocate & live w/ their families & start new lives here in Iowa.
