Susan O'Malley is a master motivator and one of the most in demand motivational speakers.
She is a board member of several charitable organizations and foundations and is a strong advocate of community service. Recently, O'Malley received the Americanism Award from the Alexandria-Olympic Boys and Girls Club for her commitment to youth.
From a very young age, O'Malley knew her path in life. In grade school, she wrote a paper declaring that her goal was to run a sports franchise. Although her teacher at the time deemed the goal as "unrealistic," O'Malley never veered from her path. She interned with the Bullets and the Capitals in the early 1980s while she was still attending college. Upon graduating in 1983 with a B.S. degree in business and finance, O'Malley worked for the Earle Palmer Brown advertising firm for three years. She then joined the Bullets in 1986 as the Director of Advertising.
Successful in her rookie season, O'Malley accepted the position of Director of Marketing the following season. In 1988, O'Malley was named Executive Vice President and given overall responsibility for marketing, sponsorship, ticket sales, advertising, accounting and public and community relations for the organization. She assumed her current position in the spring of 1991.
Ms. O'Malley is a native of Clinton, Maryland and currently resides in Alexandria, Virginia.
