Ariel Ungerleider

JD/MBA 09

Community Outreach Manager at America's Cup Event Authority

Wind In Her Sails

Waking up at 6 am to e-mails and conference calls with European colleagues before her cup of coffee is no problem for Ariel Ungerleider (JD/MBA 09), community outreach manager at America’s Cup Event Authority. She is helping put San Francisco on the global stage with a sporting event that will revolutionize the world of competitive sailing.

“Working with our local city government is a blast,” says Ungerleider, who travels between San Francisco City Hall and the Port of San Francisco to plan community outreach and communications strategies with various local stakeholders. “They are so dedicated to our city and creating a future for San Francisco that we can all be proud of.”

Ungerleider, who worked as an intern almost year-round for four years while she pursued her JD/MBA, passed the California Bar and, for now, is enjoying learning from some of the world’s best in the sports marketing industry. She recently got engaged to her longtime boyfriend and plans to get married in the summer of 2012, which, after planning one of the biggest sporting events to ever take place in San Francisco, should be a cinch to navigate.
