UltraParty is proud to show off our leadership and workforce for so many different reasons. First, they are the backbone of our company, and without them – where would we be?
Secondly, they are likely the smiling faces you will meet, whether it be at our many office/warehouse locations, or even at your next event. Finally, we want you to feel comfortable with what you are dealing with – sometimes it can be unpredictable. Have a look at our different departments and the awesome members who staff them!
A&S Party Rental is in Cincinnati and Dayton Ohio. A&S Party Rental, was originally named A&S Play Zone and was founded in 2003 by Tammy and Nathan Chapman. Nathan and Tammy Chapman both graduated from the University of Cincinnati. Additionally, they both had management careers with Fortune 500 companies where they learned how to become entrepreneurs’. Combined, Nathan and Tammy have over 60 years of customer service experience.
In 2003 we decided it was time to build a family business in order to spend more quality time with our children, Alec Chandler & Sarah, hence A&S was born. This company is a true story of entrepreneurship at work in America. We started with just three inflatable bounce houses, and put our business knowledge to work. We personally visited schools, churches, non-profit organization, after prom committees, businesses and local community organizations. A&S Party Rental mission was, and still is today, “To Create Extraordinary Evets to Celebrate your Successes and Milestones with a Team that is like Family and Customers that We Consider Friends. Anyone can provide you entertainment in Ohio, but A&S Party Rental will also provide you the exceptional service and the competitive prices you deserve when you are planning a special event.”

At A&S, you will find a great group of employees that make our team a family and one you can always rely on. My goal is to help make events for customers special and everything they ever dreamed of.
General Manager, A&S Party Rental
I was born and raised in Centerville/Springboro, Ohio. I attended Springboro Highschool then went off to enjoy 4 years of college at Eastern Kentucky University, where I obtained a BA in Business Communications. Camping with my wife and kids is by far my favorite thing to do outside of work! My favorite part about working at A&S Party Rental is the family-like atmosphere, and being able to make every customers’ party dreams come to fruition.
General Manager, UltraParty
Born and raised in Miamisburg, Ohio. Attended and Graduated from Sinclair Community College in the fire science program. I served three years as a fire fighter with the city of Carlisle. In addition, I also was a manager for Skyline Chili for over ten years. I’ve gathered plenty of management experience and am excited to take on the new location.

It’s truly so special that I have a part in creating memories that our customers can cherish for the rest of their life’s.

These days, she wears a variety of hats, including accounts payable, accounts receivable, logistics, purchasing, administrative work, and of course, sales. She manages and trains new staff about fabrics, handling and delivery for customers, works with cleaners and suppliers, and assists with purchasing new inventory. Still, her favorite part is sales and working with customers. When she isn’t making customers happy, she enjoys reading, going to church, spending time with her three kids, and visiting her parents in Florida to enjoy the beach.

I’ve finally made my way back to Ohio where I plans to stay with with my son. Outside of work i enjoy working out, hiking and spending time with family. My favorite part of working for A&S ultrasound is working events and company picnics. Encouraging kids to go down our 300 ft zip line and even riding with them facing their fears brings me joy.

I was born and raised in Dayton, OH, just about 30 minutes north of Cincinnati. I am working on obtaining my degree in Website Development from Sinclair Community College. In my free-time, you will find me playing video games and spending time with my girlfriend. The best rental in my opinion would be our Mobile Escape Room Trailer, it is compact with a lot of fun and is extremely unique. I’ve previously worked as a Driver Assistant and Lead Driver, so I have plenty of experience in servicing all the way from driving box trucks to becoming an administrative assistant.
I am from Cincinnati Ohio. I attended high school at Cincinnati College Preparatory Academy (CCPA) graduated in 2015 and went on to serve in the Army Reserve as a Transportation Management Coordinator(88n). I’m the Logistics Coordinator for A&S Party Rental, and I work to ensure your deliveries and pickup orders are accurately complete. My favorite part of working for A&S is the family like environment. My favorite rental item is the Mobile Zip Line, it is extremely fun and a unique rental.
