Chief Innovation Officer - AMP
John Lehnert has led teams, managed projects and guided change initiatives at start-ups and public companies for over a decade. With a new MBA from Presidio Graduate School, John seeks to use his leadership, organizational and communications skills to help public and private entities reach the next level on their path to sustainability. He hopes that AMP will be part of that contribution, by enabling professionals to have the information and resources they need to make progress wherever they work.
John has worked at dot-com start-ups and in the IT departments of health care, telecommunications and biotech companies, all in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has created and led a project management office and overseen various teams focused on development, testing , infrastructure and disaster recovery. He also helped establish a corporate “green team.”
John’s MBA program provided the opportunity to work with real businesses and non-profits on strategic, financial, operations and marketing plans. As president of the student representatives, he contributed to the school’s strategic plan and design of its new website.
His travels to 40 countries have reinforced his desire to see everyone thrive in balance with nature. He has worked on service projects to advance sustainability in Ecuador and Thailand.
