About our CEO
After being transplanted to Pittsburgh in 2002 from New York City to attend the University of Pittsburgh, Style & Steel's Founder and CEO Wadria Taylor, M.B.A. felt a strong urge to feed the City’s rising hunger for transformative and sophisticated events that engaged diverse tastes, attitudes, and cultures. In 2008, Taylor launched Style & Steel and choreographed a wide host of social and nightlife events that drew masses of event goers! Since then and over 100 events later, services have expanded to include Fundraisers, Weddings, and Special Functions in addition to Marketing and Promotions.
Prior to forming Style & Steel, Taylor worked with a variety of non-profit organizations and was Program Manager of Recruitment for Public Allies Pittsburgh, a Residential Development Consultant for East Liberty Development Inc. and Public Safety Task-force Coordinator for the Bloomfield Garfield Corporation.
Taylor received a Bachelors of Arts (BA) in Philosophy, Political Science and Economics from the University of Pittsburgh Honors College and a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from Carlow University.
