Julie Bengis joined Cadence in 2022 as a Manager of Event Production. Her passion for the intersection of sports, events, and philanthropy was realized while obtaining her degree in Sport Management from Syracuse University where she also played two Division I sports. In her final semester, Julie interned with the IRONMAN Foundation, which afforded her the opportunity to work at her first mass participation event, and she fell in love with the high speed environment and enthusiasm of the event organizers, participants, and spectators alike. Julie then worked for an international non-profit for five years managing the running side of the endurance fundraising program before leading the entire program in her final year and a half. Her success can be attributed to her relationship building skills, thoughtfulness, and team-first attitude. In her free time, Julie can be found training for her next triathlon or spending time with her family at the beach.
