Michele Sarkisian, a 28-year Maritz veteran, joined the Sphere Advisory Board in May.
“Michele is our travel industry locksmith,” said Sphere Founder and CEO Charles Armstrong. “As an authority on the space, Michele’s insight and connections are exposing new strategies and opening new doors.”
“When I first saw Charles demo the app, I immediately understood the implications for meeting planning, events and incentive travel programs,” says Michele. Most recently, Michele has served the role of Maritz SVP of Enterprise Solutions Group where she led dozens of senior client advisors responsible for many major accounts.
“Licensable Sphere tech is a game-changer for travel brands,” says Michele. “It’s obvious how this medium can help travel planners– and travelers. I look forward to working with Charles and the rest of the Sphere team.”
After 28 years at Maritz, Michele “retired” on April 30th. Her professional plans include serving as an advisor for several companies – including Sphere – that can benefit from her love and passion for the travel industry.
Michele has a BA from Washington University in St. Louis. She lives in Atlanta and enjoys travel, golf, tennis, scuba and is an avid reader.
