Meet The Brown Pelican Leadership Team

Our Leadership Team brings over 25 years of experience in event management and production, IT, networking, brand strategy, digital technology and business operations.


Marybeth Hall, CEO

As CEO and co-owner of Brown Pelican WiFi, my primary focus is leveraging technology to elevate brands and create exceptional event experiences.

With over 22 years in the industry, I oversee various aspects of our company’s operations and growth, from sales and marketing to strategic partnerships. Prior to Brown Pelican WiFi, I held leadership roles at Jack Morton Worldwide, a global event production agency. Before Jack Morton, I owned Option 3 Studios, an award-winning graphic design agency serving clients such as AT&T, Showtime Networks, and the United States Golf Association.

A Drexel University graduate with a B.S. in Marketing and Design, I now reside in wine country, CA, where I’m also the Founder of When Pigs Fly Ranch, a sanctuary where pigs and chickens live out their lives in happy harmony. Life is always lively with my husband, Glenn, and our four rescue dogs, and four rescue cats! Never a dull moment 🙂


Glenn Hall, Founder

As the Founder of Brown Pelican WiFi, I established a robust networking and WiFi company, prioritizing strong relationships and top-notch technology solutions for clients. With over 20 years of experience in networking and IT, I specialize in crafting event technology solutions. My expertise is widely recognized, having provided network architecture and strategic consulting for esteemed clients like Salesforce, Intel, Google, Splunk, and others.

Before diving into events and technology, I spent a decade at Jack Morton Worldwide, contributing significantly to the development of large-scale events and architectural projects for notable clients such as Madison Square Garden, Sprint, NFL, US Navy, Bank of America, LG, Home Depot, MTV, Cotton, FOX, and NBC.

Prior to my career in events and technology, I served as a volunteer firefighter and paramedic, and as a Helicopter Avionics Technician in the United States Marine Corps. In my spare time, I even work as a pig wrangler at my wife’s sanctuary, When Pigs Fly Ranch. Needless to say, I’m adept at getting things done.


Kelly O’Rourke, COO

As COO and Partner at Brown Pelican WiFi, I lead the redesign and implementation of business operations, drive organizational vision, and shape company culture at Brown Pelican. Joining as Director of Operations in 2019, I swiftly progressed to VP of Operations. During the COVID-19 crisis, I orchestrated a strategic realignment, guiding the company through turbulent times and emerging stronger as a result.

Throughout my career, I’ve supported small to medium-sized companies in various operational roles. At Strut Consulting, I established scalable day-to-day operations while also assisting top venture capital managers. Prior experiences include contributing to the growth of Aduro Advisors and overseeing operations and client relations at i2i Financial.

My expertise in human resources is supported by an SPHR Certification and a Certificate of Human Resource Management from San Francisco State University. I hold a B.A. in Political Science from the University of California at Davis.

How Our Brand Was Born

A lot of people ask us where the name “Brown Pelican WiFi” comes from. The photo at the top of the page kind of says it all.  We had a boat in Sausalito, where we would see dozens, and sometimes hundreds of Brown Pelicans.  They are inspiring, courageous, elegant, comical and beautiful.  We felt fortunate to share space with them, and we decided on the name one morning over coffee when there were “squadrons” feeding in the bay.

Where We’ve Worked

Brown Pelican WiFi has provided event wifi in hundreds of cities throughout the world. Take a look!
