Team: Arts and Business Partnership Initiatives
In her role as Director of Business Programs & Partnerships she works to build greater awareness from leaders in the business community about the impact of the arts on reaching their goals. She oversees a portfolio of work designed to reach business leaders with the resources they need to create mutually beneficial partnerships with the arts community across the nation and celebrate those partnerships. This includes managing the Business Committee for the Arts, a group of CEO’s and executive leaders that are dedicated to championing the arts within their companies and communities, and an annual awards ceremony, The National Arts and Business Partnership Awards, that celebrates exemplary business partnerships and leaders contributing to the arts ecosystem.
Prior to this she served as Director of Arts and Business Council of NY and during her time at ABC/NY, the organization launched an innovative program that uses arts-based solutions to tackle workplace engagement, creativity, and development challenges while channeling much needed resources to arts nonprofits. Under her leadership, the council strengthened and expanded support and visibility for the Diversity in Arts Leadership Internship Program (DIAL), which led to a national expansion of the program to two additional cities as well as a mid-career pilot program.
Prior to joining the council, Amy worked in Finance at Neuberger Berman where she was instrumental in building a new line of business, the dual contract managed account platform. She actively volunteered with the Neuberger Berman Foundation and lead internal corporate volunteer and employee engagement initiatives which inspired her eventual career move.
Amy received her B.A. degree in Art Therapy from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and has had a lifelong passion for the arts. A trained dancer and painter, she maintains an artistic practice in her free time.
