Kristy Van Doren

Director, Events and Promotions,
Vans, Inc.
Cypress, CA,
Although Kristy Van Doren-Batson has been on the payroll at Vans since college graduation, her direct involvement in Vans and the myriad of events the company puts on each year goes back as far as she can remember. As the granddaughter of Vans' founder Paul Van Doren, Kristy assisted with various action sports and music events, trade shows and store openings from the time she could hand out stickers. As a teenager, Kristy assissted a small event staff to manage Vans' presence at the early days of the Vans Warped Tour, America's longest running concert series. Kristy became a full-time contributor in the Vans Events and Promotions Department following graduation from the University of San Diego first assisting with Vans' large scale and grassroots events and now directing the action sports company's efforts.

In her time at Vans, Kristy has successfully executed events ranging from Vans' activation on the 50-stop Vans Warped Tour, to skate contests in Europe and Asia to small, intimate concerts at Vans' East Coast venue, the House of Vans.
