From our humble beginnings at our original Red Bank office, Hurricane Productions and MediaCutlet have always called the Jersey Shore “home.” Though we’ve moved and expanded since then, we love hiring local talent to work our events across the Garden State and beyond.

For instance, three of our current event management team members all hail from Manasquan, a family-oriented village on the beach with a population of roughly 6,000. But don’t let its charming shore town vibes fool you: Manasquan is quickly becoming a central hub for New Jersey event management. Meet the pros helping Hurricane Productions and MediaCutlet become the go-to name in corporate event productions, right from their own backyard.

Meet Our Manasquan Team Members

Leaha Tilton, Senior Event Manager

Leaha Tilton started at HPMC in 2021 as an Event Manager. In her current role as Senior Event Manager, Leaha leads a team that includes an Event Manager and an Event Coordinator. Together, they manage our client portfolio and help attract new business. Leaha also plays a pivotal role in managing significant national events and opportunities.

The most important aspects of Leaha’s job include managing vendors, sourcing proposals, and making sure our event calendars are synced so everything runs smoothly and on time.

She also builds and maintains strong relationships with our clients to make sure we’re meeting their needs and expectations. She engages with clients to assist them with activities related to sponsorships and managing ticketing/event management software.

Leaha’s passion for events can be traced back to her early career, during her impactful role with the Jersey Shore Blueclaws minor league baseball team. This experience solidified her interest in events and motivated her to build a career in this dynamic field.

Why Manasquan? What Leaha loves most about living and working in Manasquan is the community and the ability to have a flexible working environment.

“It is easy enough to work from home, but also meet co-workers outside of work for a coffee or breakfast,” she says. “We also have the ability to attend the events we manage and see everything come together.”

Jada Scimeca, Events Coordinator

Jada Scimeca is our Events Coordinator, where she assists the Event Manager with various tasks and logistics that are essential for successfully executing events. She thrives in a project-based environment, expertly managing multiple moving parts to ensure a seamless workflow.

Jada says she finds great satisfaction in event management, a career that allows her to transform her clients’ vision for their dream events into reality.

She excels in not just understanding the vision of the clients, but also in meticulously bringing it to life, from the initial discovery phase through to the final execution. This process, in which ideas become tangible, rewarding experiences, fuels her passion and dedication to her role.

Why Manasquan? The beach, the tight-knit community, the close proximity to everything, and Leggett’s Sand Bar (a favorite local spot) are among Jada’s top reasons to love living and working in Manasquan.
