Philip Gottula, '98, Event Rental Business Owner/Founder

Philip Gottula, '98, is the owner and founder of Flexx Productions, a tent and event rental company in Fort Collins, Colorado. Gottula and his former business partner started FLEXX in 2003 in a garage to bring what was missing in the event rental industry - customer service! For nearly 20 years, FLEXX Productions has overseen thousands of events with high-quality event rental products and an unsurpassed commitment to customer service.

DA is very grateful to Philip for providing special pricing to the school for tents for the 2020-21 school year. The tents will serve as outdoor classroom spaces on our 22- acre campus as we navigate the many challenges and restrictions due to COVID-19. Philip says he learned life skills at DA and "My favorite thing about DA was that I had the freedom to learn within my own style." He said he feels the small class sizes and teachers, Mr. Twarogowski and Mr. Wood being among his favorites, at DA helped him get where he is today. Philip loves the challenge of working for himself and running his own business. 

Way to go Mustang!
