 Amit Paley Biography

Amit Paley was named the CEO and Executive Director of The Trevor Project in 2017.

Paley is a leading expert on healthcare and non-profit management at the global consulting firm McKinsey & Company, where he is an Associate Partner serving numerous non-profit organizations, Fortune 500 companies and governments. He is also a leader of McKinsey’s LGBTQ group and spearheaded the firm’s global efforts on inclusion for transgender and gender non-conforming people.

A six-year counselor on the organization’s 24/7/365 Trevor Lifeline where he answered thousands of calls from youth in crisis, Paley is the first volunteer to become the CEO of the organization in its 19-year history. He has also served on Trevor’s Board of Directors, chairing the board’s Public Policy and Advocacy Committee and its Strategic Planning Committee, and leading the development of Trevor’s strategic plan as a pro bono consultant.

The Board selected Paley after an exhaustive, six-month national search conducted by Koya Leadership Partners, a leading non-profit executive search firm. He will succeed Abbe Land, who served as Executive Director and CEO for nearly five years and led an ambitious expansion of the number of LGBTQ youth that the organization helps each year. She also expanded Trevor’s chat and text services, as well as the organization’s advocacy work and education programming. Steve Mendelsohn, Trevor’s long-time Deputy Executive Director, has been successfully leading the organization as Interim Executive Director for the past several months and will continue at The Trevor Project as Deputy Executive Director.

Paley, a magna cum laude graduate of Harvard College with an MBA from Columbia Business School and Master’s from Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism, was a reporter at The Washington Post before joining McKinsey. He covered numerous beats, including as a foreign correspondent based in the paper’s Baghdad bureau, where his work was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize; a financial investigative journalist; and the paper’s national education reporter. Paley also worked in the corporate strategy office of The Washington Post Company. Earlier in his journalism career, he uncovered the existence of an 80-year-old secret court at Harvard University that persecuted gay students, several of whom died by suicide.

Paley is involved with several non-profit organizations in addition to The Trevor Project. He is a former president of The Harvard Crimson, where he is now vice chair of its board of directors and oversees the organization’s financial aid program; a board member of the Center for Public Integrity, the Pulitzer-Prize-winning organization that published the Panama Papers; and was previously an adjunct professor of entrepreneurial journalism at City University of New York.
