MISSY WALLACE, Vice President and Executive Director, Global Faith & Work Initiative. Before moving to the GFWI, Missy Wallace was the founder and Executive Director of the Nashville Institute for Faith and Work (NIFW). She became inspired to study faith and work after working in Corporate America and then the nonprofit sector for over 10 years each and realizing that work can be a part of God’s unfolding story if we allow him to guide it rather than our false idols. Prior to launching NIFW, Missy worked at Bank of America in Charlotte, NC; The Boston Consulting Group in Chicago, Singapore, Bangkok, and New York; Time Warner in New York; and most recently on the team that launched the high school division of Ensworth School where she worked in various roles over a decade in marketing, admissions, and college counseling. Missy holds a BA in economics from Vanderbilt and an MBA from the JL Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern. When not working, you can usually find Missy on the Red Trail in Percy Warner Park with her husband of 25 years, her dog, and at least one of her three almost-grown children.
