James Sexton – Managing Director / Owner
James has been in the entertainment business since the age of 17 when he started out as a mobile DJ. Over the next number of years he built James Sexton Entertainment into one of the busiest entertainment companies in the country. James is an entertainer and is passionate about the business. He has ‘been there, done that’ in the business, from DJing to singing in bands as well as MCing at some of the countries top events.
HIYA was created out of James Sexton Entertainment as the company is expanding both nationally and internationally into different markets within the entertainment industry.
James’ biggest strength is simply creating. Most of the events at HIYA are created by James and his team. More recently James hit the headlines when his hit TV show idea “Ireland’s Fittest Family” was commissioned by RTE. The series premiered on Irish television in January 2014, and is currently heading into it’s fourth season on prime time Irish television RTE 1. Fremantle media took the global rights to the format so it looks like Fittest Family could be moving internationally. This is not James’ first time to get a programme commissioned but it is however looking like his most successful idea to date. He is currently working on more TV projects in Ireland and the US.
James is also one of the creators and owners of Irelands largest children’s entertainment company Kids Party Club: www.kidspartyclub.ie
James has franchisees all over Ireland entertaining thousands of children and their families every year. This unique puppet based business
James brings experience, creativity, enthusiasm and passion to all HIYA events. And with his great team of people around him, producing great events is always a guarantee.
