Stephanie Fast | Chief Financial Officer

The Glimmer team is comprised of really talented people who are exceptional at what they do. My role is to make sure that they have everything they need to shine (glimmer) as brightly as possible.

Before joining Glimmer in February 2009, I was Director of Corporate Development at Affiniscape, a Software As A Service provider in the web content management market. Previously, I was a vice president in investment banking at Bear Stearns where I spent eight years. This gave me a foundation in finance that has served me very well.

What I've come to understand is that there is no "us" or "them". We really are all the same and only by the chance of birth am I here while they are in Ethiopia. The mothers of Ethiopia have the same hopes and dreams for their children as do I for mine. I have been blessed in my life and have achieved much. Now it's my turn to give more than I take and, hopefully, in the process, teach my girls the same lesson: to be grateful for the opportunities they have and be passionate about helping those less fortunate. Working at Glimmer allows me to give back and teach them by example.

There is no passion to be found playing small; in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.Nelson Mandela
