Andy Boyd
Andy Boyd

Andy is a recent transplant from Boulder, CO who spent the majority of his career with Agility Recovery until the company was sold to a private equity firm in 2015.

Andy is a board member for Huckabuy, Focus4media and an advisor for Dreihaus (sounds like Treehouse) Private Equity. He's active mentor for two accelerator; Techstars and Unreasonable Group, and he's excited to join Bend Outdoor Worx as a mentor this coming spring.

These roles serve as a professional smokescreen for the truth that he travels and goofs off as much as humanly possible. His wife, Jenny, and son, Emmett, are also really psyched to be in Bend.

I have set and executed core strategies for successful launch and commercialization of forward-looking products, services and key initiatives. Collaboratively built positive, productive relationships with colleagues, staff members, external partners and community leaders. I have led companies from start-up to growth stage and acquisition.

I actively work to provide support and growth for technology companies as a board member of The Technology Association of Oregon. I am a community volunteer; I co-founded Women in STEAM of Central Oregon, a group focused on promoting career opportunities and delivering resources to local female women in STEAM, and working to create social equity and eliminate gender bias in STEM careers for girls.

I am a big picture gal with a bias toward action. I have built my career in the non-profit and education landscape, taking big ideas from dream to implementation. I am most at home professionally when I am building, connecting and bridging people, sectors and industries to benefit children and families. I know the power of bringing people together in a non-competitive, high-trust environment to grow the level of problem solving and learning that is possible.
