Amy Ticsay joined the Foundation in 2022 as a Data Officer. She made the leap from the corporate/tech world to nonprofit after 15+ years. Prior to joining the Packard Foundation, Amy held several leadership roles in strategy, business & tech operations, data & analytics, program management, and advisory/management consulting in SF Bay Area (AT&T, PwC, Stanford Healthcare/University HealthCare Alliance, Oracle, and VMware).
Amy brings to the Foundation an extensive experience in combining business acumen, analytical and critical thinking, technical and communication skills to help lead data strategy and management. She is passionate when it comes to leveraging data and analytics when solving business and technical problems. She is an advocate of data literacy at all levels and will help enable the Foundation to be more data driven. As the data leader in the Grantmaking Process Team, Amy leads the journey to find new ways for staff to tap into valuable, accurate data, to use data more intentionally to inform decision-making throughout our grantmaking process, and to promote data culture at the Foundation.
Amy holds an M.B.A. (STEM-designated MBA Program with an emphasis on Strategy, Analytics, and Management) and a B.S. in Business Administration (emphasis on Financial Accounting and Technology Leadership) from the University of California, Berkeley, Haas School of Business. As a lifelong learner, her favorite Berkeley-Haas Defining Leadership Principle is “Students Always,” and she is always looking for opportunities to develop — personally and professionally. Most recently, she taught Data Strategy as a Learning Facilitator at Berkeley Executive Education/Haas. Amy is excited to put her business and tech skills to better use — “Data for Good!”
