Meet Our Team
Jodi Lee Orndorff – Director of Sales
I have been with Capital Party Rentals for 18 years now. I started as an outside sales executive for 16 years, and then moved into the position of Director of Sales for the past 2 years. I graduated from Shepherd College, in West Virginia, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. I have enjoyed meeting new people along my career path and have made many wonderful friendships along the way. In my free time I enjoy crafting, road biking and (as a Hawaii native) everything BEACH related!
Salem Shaheen – GM
As the newest member of the Capital Party Rental team, I am excited to be here and work with such talented and professional individuals. I have transitioned to CPR from a 30-year career in the hospitality industry. I am married and live in Mclean VA with my lovely wife of 40+ years. I enjoy cooking and am an avid wine lover.
Aisha Malik Rodriguez – Senior Sales Executive
I have worked as a Senior Sales Executive with Capital Party Rentals for over 11 years! From a wedding in the backyard to large venues, non-profit runs, LARGE music festivals, galas, government and embassy events to ground breaking and grand openings, I have done it. I love helping clients create their vision into reality for events by bringing in my experience of over 20 years in the hospitality world. Born and raised in Fairfax County, I am a true-blue Virginian! Proud daughter of Pakistani parents and happily married wife of an amazing Puerto Rican husband. I love to travel more than anything else in the world with Hawaii as my home away from home!
Yonis Guevara – Senior Sales Executive
I am excited to rejoin the team at Capital! I originally started by working in the warehouse but quickly realized that customer service is where my talents lie! I am an outside sales executive and have a wide variety of customers that I enjoy assisting. In my time off I enjoy walks with my dog, Keon, and fiancé, Jennifer.
Rob Lotito – Sales Executive
My name is Rob, I’m from New Jersey and graduated from The University of Delaware. I’m new to the D.C. area and so far, I love it! When it comes to music, I have the best taste in the office and listen to almost anything. In my free time, I try to go out to the driving range or the golf course when I get the chance.
Margaret Smith – Sales Executive
I am homegrown, Northern Va., from right around the corner. I’ve been working in the event industry for 20 years now. I have the most experience in weddings and galas. My favorite type of venue to work with is wineries.
Kim Sawyer – Inventory Manager
I live in Maryland and have been in the area for over 30 years but I am not a native. My father was in the Marine Corp so we traveled a lot. I’ve worked in this industry for 25+ years. The events I have the most experience in are street festivals and weddings.
