About

The BEVY is an intensely personal matchmaking service that handpicks and vets qualified candidates to constitute their membership. Greta Tufvesson and Nikki Lewis launched The BEVY with a combined nine years of experience. After building one of the largest matchmaking firms in the country, the two identified a need for introductions within the social and sophisticated crowds of New York City and Los Angeles, and branched off to create The BEVY. We provide unparalleled service in our selectivity, style, and confidentiality. No client request is too difficult. Our services are currently available in Los Angeles and New York.

Greta Tufvesson

Born in Manhattan, the daughter of a restaurateur and a ballerina, Greta Tufvesson has spent the last twelve years working in the fields of fashion, hospitality and brand consulting. She spent five years with the luxury subsidiaries of LVMH followed by a period in marketing and sales with Andre Balasz, and Spain’s top hotelier, Kiki Sarasola. In 2010, Greta helped launch New York’s first introduction firm with an edge. Greta introduced matchmaking to the sophisticated social crowd of New York City – a concept that had never really been accepted in this community. She developed a boutique aesthetic, and guided the brand’s voice and message. Inspired by her former companies’ growth and influence, she has decided to shape her own vision with The Bevy. Greta resides part time in each of New York and Los Angeles.

why?

When was the last time you had a sleepless night -- when adrenaline and excitement pulsed through your veins, all because you were so taken by someone? It almost sounds like fiction, or a romantic comedy. The truth is, most of us have been phased by constant mediocre dates, even mediocre relationships. It is unique and rare to feel an honest connection these days. We barely have the time to date between our busy work and social lives; and we certainly don’t have time to investigate our dates prior. Not wasting time is critical in a world where the explosion of online dating sites has led to a related drop in quality, and friends are too busy to vet the people they send our way. High risk; low reward. That’s where we come in. The team behind the The Bevy exists to exceed your greatest expectations. We will turn your dating into a proactive, efficient and fulfilling experience.
