Marissa Dresnek

Director, Global Strategic Events, Sitecore

“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

For Marissa, event planning is that job. Both rewarding and at times, a very wild ride, no two days are ever the same. Marissa has been planning a wide range of events at Sitecore, a composable digital experience platform company, for over 12+ years. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, she has a natural interest toward discovering new places, cultures, and international destinations that drive motivation, inspiration, and new ideas.

She is passionate about creating and delivering amazing world-class brand and customer experiences, and for Marissa there is nothing more fulfilling about producing events than the end result. Seeing everyone gather in-person, connect, and share new and unforgettable memories together while learning and having fun at the same time is the best part of event planning. Knowing you play a significant role in organizing every aspect of an event from A to Z and making sure everything comes together successfully truly makes the non-stop days and sleepless nights worth it for Marissa.

As a new CEMA member and first time CEMA Summit attendee, she values meeting new people and building relationships with partners and vendors around the world.

When Marissa is not planning events, she enjoys hiking, trying new recipes, spending time outdoors with family and friends, and enjoying a glass of wine (recommendations are always welcome)!
