Koya leadership partners congratulates the Trevor Project on the appointment of Amit Paley as its next CEO & Executive Director.

The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people ages 13-24.

Paley’s selection was made after a thoughtful and comprehensive national search overseen by Koya.

Most recently, Paley has served as a leading expert on healthcare and non-profit management at the global consulting firm McKinsey & Company, where he was an Associate Partner serving numerous non-profit organizations, Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. He’s also been a leader of McKinsey’s LGBTQ group and spearheaded the firm’s global efforts on inclusion for transgender and gender non-conforming people.

A six-year counselor on the organization’s 24/7/365 Trevor Lifeline where he answered thousands of calls from youth in crisis, Paley is the first volunteer to become the CEO of the organization in its 19-year history. He has also served on Trevor’s Board of Directors, chairing the board’s Public Policy and Advocacy Committee and its Strategic Planning Committee, and leading the development of Trevor’s strategic plan as a pro bono consultant.
