About Us

Message from Our Founder

When I founded Austin’s Elite in 2006 there were few companies here offering similar services. My passion behind Austin’s Elite was to build a stable base for the Austin community. Austin’s Elite’s core fundamental values have always been community and family.

When developing my business plan I wanted my team to be able to make their own schedule. Being able to pick up events around their life helps us to find healthy, happy people that enjoy what they do and in return will create magic for every guest. Being a mom myself, I know how important family is to an individual’s success, so having a solid work life balance has been fundamental to the continued success of Austin’s Elite. I am very proud to say that I have team members who have been with me since the concept of the idea.

What continues to set us apart is our dedication and passion for everything we put our hands on and our hearts into.

Kim Haley

Founder & Owner

I moved to Austin when I was sixteen years old. Becoming an adult in this city I learned the importance of community and sustainability. I have been in the service industry my whole life. I bartended for Ztejas for fourteen years in the restaurant and private party room. I started at Direct Events in 1995. I was the bar manager for The Austin Music Hall, La Zona Rosa & The Backyard. After a cumulative amount of years in the service industry I wanted to share my personal experiences with others to create magic for their life events. I founded Austin’s Elite in 2006 and since then have been providing quality & consistent services to all that come our way.
