Zinc is an agency focused on curating creative, one-of-a-kind experiences that leverage the power of talent in sports, music, fashion, the culinary world, theater, and any of life’s other passions. Zinc’s approach is to always deliver a truly memorable experience that allows our clients to build and strengthen relationships with their customers. We work hard to conceptualize unique themes, whether attached to a specific personality or aligned with a major event. From there, we ensure all the details are flawlessly executed with a turnkey approach to event management.
Zinc’s leadership team comes with more than 25 years of combined experience in the events and hospitality industries. Co-founders Will Steinberg and Zach Yabroff each bring their own unique and complementary sets of skills to the business. Prior to Zinc, Will was a co-founder at Goviva, an experience and hospitality company that was eventually acquired by CAA (Creative Artists Agency) to become CAA Premium Experience. Will oversaw the development of new products and headed up partner and talent management at Goviva, which is also where he met Zach, who was one of the company’s leading account managers, serving many Fortune 100 companies. When Zach decided to start his own agency in early 2018, many of his clients followed, trusting him to handle all their event and experience needs. Will joined, too. Now, Will focuses on growing Zinc’s brand and product portfolio, while Zach leads sales for the agency.
