Jackie Dyer is currently the CFO of Response Media, which operates a weekly newspaper in Montana. Her career in finance began in derivatives trading, but she has more recently worked in the non-profit sector, including five years spent as VP of Finance for a Catholic school management organization in New York City. Her most memorable work, and the experience which cemented her interest in both Africa and economic development, was the year she and her husband spent in Namibia, managing a drought relief food distribution effort.
Jackie graduated from Johns Hopkins with a B.A. in math and holds an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School. Most importantly, she is the proud mom of a son and two daughters, one of whom has gone on a VIP friendship trip. Jackie later accompanied her daughter to Zomba and was most impressed by VIP’s investments in Sakata.
