Merix Gustin is passionate about the power of face-to-face events. As owner and Director of Event Operations at Plan Ahead Events Boulder, she oversees both the strategic direction and tactical execution of high impact events for her clients.

With deep experience in sales, marketing and corporate event planning, Merix is able to see the big picture yet execute the smallest details. The result is reliably successful events ranging from complex industry conferences and expos to professional development programming and intimate non-profit fundraisers. Merix is widely recognized for her ability to either collaborate and integrate with existing teams or manage events from start to finish for organizations who lack the skills or manpower internally.

Before founding Plan Ahead Events Boulder, Merix served as a management consultant and marketing director for a national purchasing alliance. She holds a bachelor’s degree from DePauw University, and a master’s in business administration from Thunderbird School of Global Management.
