The secret to her success is clear: Karleen possesses an awe-inspiring ability to wed boundless imagination with meticulous attention to detail, producing bespoke special events and luxury experiences of unsurpassed excellence for luminaries, trendsetters, and today’s brightest stars.
Karleen specializes in producing magical moments, and her own story reads like a fairy tale: After graduating from Howard University, the Memphis native came to New York armed with nothing but ambition and a dream. She quickly landed a job in the publicity department at Island Def Jam Recordings, and immediately gained recognition for her exceptional skills and dedication. She was recruited first by R&B artist Ne-Yo to oversee the day-to-day operations of his management company, and later by Sean “Diddy” Combs who brought Karleen on as his senior executive assistant at Bad Boy Entertainment. Combs came to relying on Karleen extensively to coordinate the efforts of his multi-million-dollar business entities, external partnerships, and talent relationships, and manage the details of his complex social itinerary and whirlwind private life. The confidence, expertise, and international connections Karleen developed throughout her career inspired her, in 2013, to strike out on her own to create THE VANITY GROUP
THE VANITY GROUP quickly became the agency of choice for a variety of corporate clients and A-list celebrities, from Justin Bieber and Kobe Bryant to MIGOS and Cardi B. Karleen and her staff of lifestyle event curators understand the needs of high-profile individuals, and the “no-excuses” work ethic they expect.
Featured in Forbes, VOGUE, InStyle and other global publications, Karleen and her stellar team at The Vanity Group specialize in clients who demand the very best.
