One of the good things about the steady success of the Alliance of Angels (www.allianceofangels.com) is the visibility it gives the Managing Director to virtually every deal in the Northwest. However, this also means that the AoA Managing Director is a highly sought-after professional. Our current managing director, Greg Huey, has decided to move on to become the President and COO of Glassybaby (http://www.glassybaby.com/). While we are exceedingly sad to see Greg leave, we are delighted that the Seattle startup community has a new and competent executive. Over the last two plus years, Greg has ably driven the AoA program to new heights, contributing to innumerable companies and making sure the very best were well represented to the AoA. The AoA set new records for annual investment in two successive years with Greg at the helm, a significant achievement while simultaneously navigating the organization through the economic downturn. We look forward to building on the progress AoA has made under his leadership. Greg leaves AoA having firmly established our program as a national model for entrepreneurial investment. While he leaves some big shoes to fill, we are confident that the opportunity to work with one of the most active angel groups in the nation will attract a successor who will continue this great work.
So now it’s time to find Greg’s replacement. The ideal candidate should have several years of business experience, and have substantial knowledge of the investment business (especially early-stage investing) either representing a venture capital or other private equity firm. An MBA would be a plus. The job description can be found here: AoA Managing Director Job Description.
