Our Team

Rodney Portrait

Rodney Oksuita

Catering Director
608-755-4123 ext. 350

As we all know, Rod is a hardworking, fast talking man who always has a brainstorm ready. He is extremely passionate about his work, and equally passionate about KANDU and Best Events Catering. He refers to the company as “the family business” because that is how important his coworkers and the company is to him. He holds it all close to his heart, and it shows in his daily commitment and to anyone lucky enough to work with him for their event. He constantly pushes his employees to climb higher, think bigger and always find a way to overcome. He pushes these ideas at the workplace and also instills them in their character for lifelong lessons. I know it’s hard to believe, but there are moments when Rod is not in ‘work mode’. He has built an ever evolving garden in his backyard. He is also a creative welder, and an avid traveler.

Office Manager

Kelly attended St. Cloud State University in Minnesota, with a focus in Art History, and moved back to Janesville to be closer to family. Best Events was a perfect fit for her creative nature. She enjoys the fun of her job and working with great people; both in her office and her customers. Plus, who doesn’t love playing on Pinterest and get paid for it? When she is not at work keeping Rodney in-line, you will find her with her husband and two children, traveling, cheering on the Packers or Antiquing.
