Senior Manager, Global Events
Since May 2016, Becky Kavanagh has been the Senior Manager, Global Events at Ellucian, a company that creates software and solutions tailor-made for higher education institutions. She is focused on operational excellence, always keeping an eye on the overall event strategy to ensure customer satisfaction and sales goals are achieved.
Prior to Ellucian, Becky spent a year and a half as a consultant at some fantastic organizations in the Bay Area including Google, ServiceNow and Workday. Before that she was with RSA for nine years, working on the world’s leading information security conference, RSA Conference.
Becky’s passion is managing large scale customer and industry events and capitalizing on collaboration with a variety of external vendors and internal organizations, all of which contribute to the success of the event. She believes that through the exchange of perspectives an event can evolve and grow to something new each year — and never gets old!
Outside of her event career Becky loves to travel and found herself taking a ceramics class in Copenhagen last summer after following (and finding) a well-known potter on Instagram. She also enjoys reading, spending time exploring the East Bay hills with her puppy, Willa, and watching her six nephews and nieces (ages 8 – 1.5 years) grow and start to develop hobbies and interests of their own.
