DorobekInsider: ACT/IAC hires former 1105er Kristyn Rivellese for events post
Wednesday - 7/15/2009, 2:27pm EDT
The DorobekInsider has learned that the American Council on Technology and Industry Advisory Council has hired Kristyn Rivellese, who most recently was with the 1105 Government Information Group as the director of executive events. Rivellese will be taking the post vacated by Kelly Olson, who joined the ConnellyWorks marketing-PR-events company.
ACT/IAC staff and board were told yesterday.
1105 insiders have been told that Rivellese’s position was “eliminated.” At 1105, she managed the very successful annual Fed 100 Gala and the GCN Awards Gala among other “executive” events. But she also managed the event formerly known as the CIO Summit. That event, which when I was there we tried to re-brand as the Government Leadership Summit, sought to be a “salon” type of atmosphere — bring a relatively small group of senior executives together to discuss the issues facing government — and come up with solutions to those challenges. I always found these events highly valuable. It was at the CIO Summit in 2007 that we first talked about government 2.0 — and it was the first place that Team Intellipedia spoke publicly. Speaking personally, I got to meet some amazing people, but… I think they also spurred government collaboration. I know that former EPA CIO Molly O’Neill made some connections — and developed ideas that eventually helped her be successful at EPA.
Unfortunately, given the hyper-evented world today, I hear that the most recent Summit will be the last.
All of that being said, Rivellese will face interesting challenges at ACT/IAC.
Congratulations on the new gig.
She starts in August.
