About

The BEVY is a bespoke matchmaking service that handpicks and vets qualified candidates to constitute their membership.

Greta Tufvesson and Nikki Lewis launched The BEVY in 2014 after building one of the most successful dating firms in the US. The two identified a need for connections within the sophisticated and social subsets of New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco, and branched off to create The BEVY. The BEVY is unparalleled in their selectivity, approach, and consistency.

Greta Tufvesson

Co-Founder

Born in Manhattan, the daughter of a Swedish restaurateur and a ballerina, Greta Tufvesson spent 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 Balazs and Spain’s top hotelier, Kiki Sarasola. In 2010, Greta helped launch New York’s first introduction firm with a modern 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 decided to shape her own vision with The BEVY. Greta resides part time in both New York and Los Angeles.
