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.

Before returning to the White House for this most recent term, Mr. Mosteller relocated to Salt Lake City, Utah to help organize the Bobsled, Luge and Ski Jumping Competitions at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. He spent the next five years coordinating large-scale international sporting events in Europe and Australia and at the 2004 Summer Olympic and 2006 Winter Olympic Games.

Brian joins us in June fresh from three months with Vice President Biden’s private office.
