Aya DeSimone (she/her)

Aya has an interesting and varied background in business and in the nonprofit sector.  She has over two decades of corporate and investment banking experience around the world in NY, Australia and Asia. She spent several years managing Treasury risk portfolios and clients for multinational corporations such as Apple and UBS

More recently Aya shifted gears and focused her energies and experience on giving back to her community. She serves on various startup and nonprofit boards, has managed local community campaigns and even co founded a local non profit committed to improving and accelerating gender parity policies and practices in our communities, businesses and government. 

She believes that parity, access, diversity, cultural arts and engagement benefit us all, both economically and socially. She continues to apply that belief in her nonprofit work as she did in her business career through her mentoring and sponsorship of young interns and colleagues.  

Aya studied in Melbourne Australia. She holds a Bachelor of Science Mathematics, Statistics and Econometrics with a post graduate diploma in Finance.
