Amy Weeden Linkedin
Chief Executive Officer
“You cannot overstate the power held over your organization by culture; your ability to drive strategy and be successful as a leader often depends on it.”Amy Weeden learned from an early age that education is a luxury, but one worth the fight. She’s admittedly a bit of a nerd when it comes to her love for thinking about, talking about, and solving business problems – and she does so on a daily basis. Whether hosting a dinner party, reading the latest business tome or traveling (she’s visited more than three dozen countries and once lived with a Tibetan family in a refugee camp near Mount Everest) Amy is on a lifelong mission to learn and discover.
Amy is a “think straight, talk straight” kind of person, and her answers are invariably direct and honest, leading to a transparent, open dialogue that fosters greater speed to understanding. Before cofounding Propeller, she led teams and projects in a wide range of industries for Watson Wyatt, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and ACME Business Consulting. Amy holds an MBA from the Haas Business School, UC Berkeley, and a bachelor’s degree in international development from World College West.
