Katie O'Reilly, who was executive director of the Milken Institute, has joined Prosek Partners to lead its convening and networking offering.
The Santa Monica-based economic think tank runs conferences throughout the world to further its mission of helping "people build meaningful lives in which they can experience health & well-being, and pursue effective education and gainful employment."
It was founded in 1991 by Drexel Burnham Lambert junk bond king Mike Milken, who was convicted of securities fraud in 1989, fined $600M and sentenced to prison. Donald Trump pardoned Milken in 2020.
Prior to joining Milken Institute in 2007, O'Reilly was senior development officer at the United Way of Greater Los Angeles.
At Prosek Partners, she will be charged with developing programming to engage C-suite executives and other thought leaders.
