Chuck Ghoorah


Co-Founder and President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Cvent


As a member of Cvent's founding team, it's been incredible to play an instrumental role in driving the company's growth from a two-person startup to the 4,000+ person company we are today. With more than 20 years of experience in the meetings industry, I've spoken at more than 100 conferences and trade shows; advised dozens of Fortune 500 organizations and large associations on the business impact of strategic meetings management and event marketing; and built relationships with some of the world's top hotel chains, including Hilton and Marriott. Prior to joining Cvent, I was a corporate attorney with Hale and Dorr, where I specialized in venture capital financing and technology transactions. Previous to this, I was an Associate Director at the Advisory Board Company (NASDAQ:ABCO) where I delivered numerous presentations to hundreds of CEO's and senior executives. I graduated Magna Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Duke University, then earned my master's degree in political science from Duke Universitys Graduate School and my Juris Doctorate with honors from Duke University School of Law. Specialties: sales management, marketing, meetings technology, event planning, event management, event registration, strategic meetings management, event marketing, conference and trade show management
