Bryan Quinan, a results-oriented, certified meeting professional with 15 years of experience planning and executing corporate meetings and events, is the Milken Institute's director of events. He produces the largest gathering of the world's capital markets: the Institute's flagship four-day Global Conference that draws more than 3,500 registrants to the historic Beverly Hilton. Quinan is responsible for deploying multi-million-dollar meeting and event budgets around the world while leading the Institute's strategic meetings management program.
A graduate of the University of Southern California, he began his career producing corporate incentives to the world's top islands and highest-rated luxury hotels for a destination management company in Maui, Hawaii. He returned to Southern California to specialize in high-end customer experience event-marketing, large association events and incentive programs with another leading destination management company.
After successfully opening and marketing that company's Los Angeles area office, Quinan became a leading planner for the nonprofit industry. He is an active volunteer on the Southern California Chapter board of Meeting Professionals International and speaks about global event strategy and innovations in meeting management. Quinan works at the Institute's Santa Monica office.
