Brian Quinn joined the CreativeMornings team as Director of Partnerships in March 2015.
He started out his career in the music industry, with a BFA in Jazz Performance from The New School, and having played the drums across all genres for over 20 years. He also helped to produce hundreds of concerts globally during his tenure managing world-renowned jazz artists for 10 years.
Brian began his work in the food and beverage industry when he co-founded The Noble Rot in 2009, an underground supper club in New York dubbed “a new form of clandestine drinking” by journalists. Many also know Brian for his cocktails, which he learned from the Milk & Honey family and incorporated into his numerous experiential events around the country, as well as writing cocktail articles for FoodRepublic.com since 2012.
In 2012, Brian became Director of Programming for Social Media Week, an NYC-based conference welcoming 10,000 attendees from the tech, media, and advertising communities each year, in addition to taking place in over 25 cities globally. Brian curated the topics, speakers, and schedules both in New York and London for 2 ½ years, helping to raise the event’s profile and success during that time.
At CreativeMornings, Brian joins an incredible team helping to bring value to the creative community around the world, and will lead both the global partnerships and also a wide range of new initiatives for the platform.
Brian lives in Brooklyn.
