about the speaker
Brian Mosteller served as Special Assistant to President Obama and Director of Oval Office Operations from 2008 through the entirety of two administrations. His duties included ensuring that President Obama could execute his schedule on a daily basis and, on behalf of the President's immediate interests, overseeing the planning and implementation of White House functions, speeches, State Visits and meetings. Mr. Mosteller worked daily with senior staff, other Executive Branch offices, the White House Military Office, the Secret Service, and the Private Residence staff.
Prior to President Obama’s election, Mr. Mosteller served in the advance operation of the ’08 campaign, developing many of the event organizational practices and traveling procedures used around the country and, ultimately, the globe.
Born in Akron, Ohio, he earned a degree in International Business and graduated Summa Cum Laude from The Ohio State University. While still finishing his coursework, he began working with White House Advance Office under the Clinton administration, traveling on behalf of President and the First Lady from 1998 through 2001.
