For more than 20 years Robert has had a successful track record for excellence in the Visual and Event Industries. His unique style and flair eventually caught the attention of the Regional Vice President of the Nordstrom Sales Promotion department that included Special Events. Upon his acceptance of employment there his career skyrocketed as a result of his desire to do the best and be the best. It became apparent that he was truly dedicated to excellence. After a few years at their Menlo Park, New Jersey location, Nordstrom relocated him to Santa Barbara, California. While there, he won several awards including an international award for Visual Display. His penchant for organizing led him to pursue a new avenue of expression, event planning. Because his record spoke for itself, he was once again transplanted. This time to Los Angeles, as he was now in charge of the Event Planning and Visual departments for Nordstrom there. At an event that was coordinated and executed by him and his team for Donna Karan and Magic Johnson, he met the president and CEO of The Magic Johnson Foundation Kawanna Myers-Brown who introduced him to Burt and Marianne Nelson of Special Occasions, Inc. of Beverly Hills. Because of the instant chemistry that they all shared, he was offered employment with their very exclusive event planning company. The company’s client list read like a Who’s Who in Hollywood as well as several Fortune 500 companies. He also had the distinct honor of working on many projects with the world renowned wedding producer Diann Valentine. From events of only six to six thousand, he treated each client as if they and their event were the only ones that mattered. From movie premieres to fund-raisers to Bar/Bat Mitzvahs to Fashion shows to celebrity weddings, Robert E. Hansen and his Dressed in Black Event Productions team will continue to provide top-notched unequaled service.
