Molly Ruland

CEO

Molly D. Ruland, is the owner, founder and CEO of One Love Massive (OLM) and is no stranger to hard work and determination. At 15 months old she was told she wouldn’t live more than 20 years or grow to be more than three feet tall and has spent the rest of her trips around the sun proving those doctors wrong. Molly has worn a lot of hats including 13 years in real estate finance which is where she cut her teeth on all things business and power of personality.

One Love Massive exists as a company because on many levels, the entertainment industry in the DC Metropolitan area has saved and sustained Ruland’s life. After spending many years working in corporate America, yet having a childhood filled with sounds, Molly made the decision in October 2009 to give back to the world that gave her another chance.

Post-2009, OLM began hosting a weekly event that has spawned into a lineup eight years later that includes festivals, block parties, integration into the DC government’s regular music event programming and a national awareness of the brand’s steadfast devotion to all things great and musical in DC. In many ways, Molly’s feeling that music transcends all cultures has become a cry that’s become a rallying cry for ALL of DC as well. Now, entering it’s second decade of operation, OLM intends to continue being an innovator in crafting positive communal experiences for as many people as possible

Molly’s motto is “Life doesn’t have to be easy to be beautiful.” Deeply driven by the love for her city and everyone in it, Molly hopes to create a sustainable, enjoyable and peaceful community where all races, genders, and ages are welcomed and appreciated. Like the tagline says, “Good Music, Good People, Good Times.”
