Meet Marian Goodell, Burning Man CEO

Festivals can occasionally be affected by the weather, but no one could have possibly guessed how the 2023 Burning Man celebration would turn out. The CEO of Burning Man is named Marian Goodell. Tens of thousands of people were kept trapped by torrential rain while navigating foot-deep puddles and mud.

Approximately 72,000 people attended the 2023 event, which had already been delayed twice due to bad weather and featured superstars like Chris Rock and Diplo, but The Times reports that nearly half of them departed before it was finished.

“You had to haul,” Kristine Rae, an attendee and physical therapist from Idaho, recalled of the experience, via The New York Times. “There were cars stuck halfway up their wheels.” While some attendees may have found the situation to be intolerable, others saw the humor in the chaos.

“The rain provided an amazing opportunity to walk, to move more slowly, to connect with people who you may not have,” Donovan McGrath, a yoga instructor from Los Angeles, told The Times. “There were many silver linings.”

Emergency responders who were sent to the Nevadan Black Rock Desert in response to a call about a man who was unresponsive found it challenging to enter and exit the region due to the severe weather conditions. On-site CPR was performed, but by the time emergency responders got there, the man—later identified as 32-year-old Leon Reece—had already been pronounced dead.

Leon’s death’s cause hasn’t been made public as of yet, but Pershing County Sheriff Sgt. Nathan Carmichael told the Reno Gazette-Journal that it didn’t seem to be tied to the weather.

Burning Man 2023’s organizers declined a request for security from the Nevada National Guard as the events took place.

Marian, the CEO of the company at the time told NBC News that there was “no cause for panic.” “We’ve made it really clear that we do not see this as an evacuation situation,” Marian explained. She added that everyone made “such a fuss” and said: “We’ve made it really clear that we do not see this as an evacuation situation. The water is drying up.”

Although no official statement denying the existence of the 2024 Burning Man event has been made, details have not yet been made public.

The Burning Man Project and Google jointly control Burning Man. According to a Mixmag story from April 2019, the tech company bought 51.2% of the festival.

The publication spoke with Google’s Chief of Fun and Games division Marcus Fooly, who said, in part: “We don’t want to change too much about the event, we just want to compliment the essence of the Burn. We’ll be adding our trademark Google Os as eyes for the Burning Man effigy and also renaming Robot Heart to Roobot Heart, but as you can tell, it’s only minor changes to the aesthetic.”

How Much Is Marian Goodell Net Worth?

Marian Goodell’s net worth is above $3 million. Reno Gazette Journal reported that in 2017, Marian reportedly made a salary of $261,000. According to the outlet, Nearly 40 percent of Burning Man’s money, more than $15 million, was spent on salaries and other employee benefits, an increase of about $2 million from the year before, according to the 2017 tax documents.

Marian studied creative writing at Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland, from 1980 to 1984, according to her LinkedIn profile. She then pursued her master’s degree in photography from 1992 to 1994 at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

Per the festival’s website, Marian first experienced Burning Man in 1995 and has since contributed to its improvement and expansion.

It states, in part: “Thanks in part to Marian’s guidance and dedication, Burning Man has grown from the scrappy, anarchist gathering of a few thousand people she first attended in 1995 into a global cultural movement that sparks innovation in design, business, technology, education, and urban planning.
