Meet The Team
Born in the small town of Oneonta, New York, Michele Benitez Edison knew she wanted to be part of something bigger. She migrated to Austin, Texas at the age of 18, not knowing where that path would lead but excited about the possibilities.
She has watched the growth of Austin and the challenges it has faced. Each career move over the last 25 years has been an increase in level of responsibility and involvement in the Austin community. She played a key part in servicing one of the largest conventions to date which brought over 17 thousand attendees and utilized 42 hotels in the Austin proper in 2017.
Michele has been a proud member of the NACE Austin Chapter (National Association for Catering and Events) for almost 17 years and continues to be an active and dedicated member to the Austin NACE family.
Michele can easily make a friend and she will tell you like it is and will be loyal to the end. When asked what keeps her motivated, it’s very simple…her family and her dogs. Spending time with her 16 nieces and nephews keeps her young and energetic. And that doesn’t include her 40+ cousins! There is no lack of love in her family but there is always room for more!
