The Power 50: Elaine Osgood

7/9/2018

ELAINE OSGOOD

Founder & CEO

Atlas Travel & Technology Group, Marlborough

Residence: Westborough

Colleges: UMass Amherst, Anna Maria College

What Osgood started more than 30 years ago under the Uniglobe Travel franchise umbrella has blossomed into a travel and technology behemoth with hubs in London, New York City and Washington, D.C. and global support in 110 countries. The technology side of Atlas helps corporate clients understand their operations using analytics, increasing efficiencies in areas like supplier management, risk management and – yes – global business travel expenses. Atlas hosts fundraising events for nonprofits like the Jimmy Fund and Marlborough Community Cupboard, and Osgood volunteers on boards for the Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce and Milford Public Schools' hospitality and tourism program.

What advice would you give up-and-comers? Aim high and go for it. Believe in yourself!

The obsessed chef: I grew up in an Italian household and have an innate need to feed everyone. In planning personal events or meetings at ATTG, I believe food is a critical part of any gathering and tend to overdo it. Ask my family about the angst I feel when my dog won't eat his dinner!! And if I am ever going to repeat an event, I must be sure to outdo whatever I did previously. It's a curse!
