Kim Ruggles


Hello!  I’m your “typical Southern Californian” …. I grew up somewhere else.  That’s the great state of Michigan (go Red Wings). Early on, I understood the benefits of being prepared and establishing a plan when taking an active role in planning family gatherings.


My professional career began with the American Diabetes Association, where I planned walks, cycling events, various galas and an annual golf tournament. My next move took me to the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce as the Program and Event Manager. This is where I planned networking mixers, award shows, the mayoral State of the City Address, product launches and seminars.  It was the Chamber that cemented my desire to help companies large and small provide a branding experience to engage customers and grow their business.


Founded in 2010, Kim Ruggles Events has allowed me to follow my passion for creating extraordinary events and experiences. In 2013, I expanded my offerings to incorporate entertainment events, including wrap parties, premieres and red carpet celebrations.



May Soth is a rarity in southern California: she actually grew up here and stuck around. After graduating from California State University, Long Beach with a degree in journalism and public relations, she interned with the West and Central Basin Municipal Water Districts. This is where she honed her event planning skills helping to plan the annual Water Harvest event, facility launch party and community outreach events.  From there, May worked for the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce……that’s where we met.  May handled monthly business luncheons, committee meetings, and an annual multi-day conference in New York City which included the Beverly Hills mayors’ executive luncheon, speaking engagements and multiple meetings and dinners.
