CEO and Founder


Abby is CEO of Boardspan, reinventing how boards approach their governance needs and strategies. Simply said, Boardspan is the modern way boards address search, assessment, and information access.

Abby has advised hundreds of boards over her career ranging from Fortune 100 to national non-profits to early-stage companies. She spent 15 years on Wall Street advising board & C-suite clients on a range of high-profile financings and M&A transactions. She then joined the leadership team at the global search firm Russell Reynolds, first in the U.S. and then building the Asia-Pacific PE business while living in Singapore.

Abby has served on numerous corporate and non-profit boards, and she is a frequent public speaker and voice on a range of boardroom topics. She received her BS in Engineering from Lafayette College and her Master's from Yale University, where she is a member of the Entrepreneurship Advisory Board.
