McKenzie Malone – Events Director


McKenzie has been with Venture Portland since 2021. She grew up in Portland and has more than 12 years of event experience. She began her career with the Walt Disney Company in Orlando, FL. After several years with Mickey and Minnie, she excitedly returned home to follow her passion of events and marketing. McKenzie leveled up her skills, first with the NBA (Go Blazers!) and then, the MLB. With the goal of supporting small business and entrepreneurs, she transitioned from the athletic industry and took a role at WeWork. It was there that she discovered her true calling. Currently, McKenzie volunteers at Milk Crate Kitchen and serves on the Emerging Leaders Board for Make-A-Wish, Oregon.
