Update

Amy Errett joined the Maveron team as a partner in 2008, expanding the firm's operations beyond the Pacific Northwest's Seattle to San Francisco. She has more than 25 years of business and operating expertise as a leading entrepreneur, senior executive, and social-mission visionary.

Amy's multifaceted career has ranged from the online web 2.0 media industry to the offline consumer marketplace, and has stretched as far as volunteer nonprofit leadership. Most recently, she was chief executive officer and an owner of Olivia, repositioning the travel company as a complete lifestyle company for gay women both online and offline while multiplying revenues from $5 million to $35 million. In 2006, she was named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year for Northern California.

Prior to her work at Olivia in 2002, she founded and served as chair and chief executive officer of the Spectrem Group, a worldwide strategic consulting, information, and M&A advisory firm. Amy sold Spectrem to an IPG subsidiary, NFO Worldwide (NYSE: NFO). After the sale, she joined the senior management team at ETrade where she diversified the company's business beyond brokerage and ran a $200 million business that encompassed the management of ETrade's growth areas, including their business-to-business stock option division, and launched a successful asset-based products and investment management services division.

A passionate humanitarian, Amy is the chair of the board of Glide Foundation, San Francisco's largest nongovernmental, direct social services organization. Amy is also a member of San Francisco's Barbary Coast chapter of YPO (Young Presidents’ Organization), and serves on the board of Wharton West. Amy currently serves on the Altius Education, Latimer Education, Livemocha, Mozes, SAY Media (formerly VideoEgg) and Threadsy boards of directors.

She holds a BA in liberal arts from the University of Connecticut and a MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
