As a Global Event Marketing Manager at Ivanti, Michelle Olmstead is one of the driving forces behind a portfolio of successful global events.  With 16 years of diverse experience, she has been thriving in the frenzied world of marketing and events, loving the challenges and excitement each day brings.

Michelle graduated from San Jose State University with a B.S. in Public Relations and Business.  During her time in undergrad she won a highly ambitious competition, winning over the General Motors executives with her one-million-dollar public relations campaign.  Some of her favorite projects before Ivanti include event production of movie openings and press junkets for companies such as Sony Animation and Pixar Studios.

Michelle grew up in a small beach town on the Central Coast of California.  Her favorite thing to do in her free time is to take her Maltese-Yorkie, Brooklyn to the beach. She is a devoted Dallas Cowboys fan and when she is not at the beach, she loves trying new restaurants and wine tasting.  Michelle has been fortunate enough to travel to some great places during her time at Ivanti and awards Prague as the most remarkable city so far, loving its historic buildings and gothic architecture.

In times of indecision, Michelle recalls her favorite quote by Kobi Yamada. “If you knew you could not fail, what would you attempt?”
