June 19, 2023, Birmingham, AL – We are delighted to announce the appointment of Amy Gandy as the program manager for the Momentum Leaders Northern Alabama program. With extensive community involvement and leadership roles in the Huntsville/Madison County community, Gandy brings a wealth of experience, enthusiasm, and connections to the role.

Gandy will lead local efforts to collaborate with established community leaders, identify candidates for Momentum’s nine-month executive leadership program and its mentor matching programs, and ensure an extraordinary experience for program participants at retreats and each program day during the rigorous nine-months of executive sessions. Additionally, Gandy will play a crucial role in expanding the programs and services offered by Momentum Leaders in Northern Alabama in the next few years.

Reflecting on her new role, Gandy expressed her enthusiasm, stating, “I am honored to join Momentum Leaders. Having worked in a program capacity at Leadership Greater Huntsville and as past board president of Junior League, I can already see the program differentiation and how valuable Momentum will be as a complement to other leadership development and networking opportunities in our community.”
