Julian Posner is CEO of Banana Split, a Special Event and Production company that he founded over 40 years ago.
He began his professional career as a teenager, working as an interior designer by day and a DJ by night. Unbeknown to him in his formative years, the combination of these life two passions, music and design, would be the perfect pairing once Banana Split was established and formed the backbone of one of the most exclusive event planning companies in the world.
He knew, to get to the top of this game, meant doing things differently and better. Having an exceptional eye for detail and an imagination with no limits, he and his team have designed and created some exceptional projects including a floating ballroom on a lake, a Hacienda in the middle of a mangrove in Mexico, a most incredible weekend charity gala in St Petersburg and a world-famous toga party in Greece.
The relationship with his clients is another reason for his success. He acknowledges that to transform an idea or vision into his client’s dream event means understanding them and what elements will make it unique and perfect to them.
He is honoured to have created the most dazzling, unusual, breath-taking, jaw-dropping Global events for the most wonderful clients, working extensively in the United Kingdom, as well as spectacular venues in the Europe, Asia, NYC, Los Angeles, Maldives and Brunei……. the list is endless!
To support the design and implementation of these events, Julian also established a very successful production company, stocking the very latest in sound, lighting and staging.
Julian recognises that he couldn’t do what he does best without the support of his 3 phenomenal directors and an amazing team of super loyal staff, some of whom have been with the company for over 25 years.
