Shannon Maier joined Foundry in 2017 as an executive assistant and human resources coordinator. In these roles, she manages a number of back-office functions. In addition to providing executive support, administering Foundry’s human resources function, facilitating the partner fund network, and documenting investments, she also contributes to content creation. She works with partners Chris Moody and Jaclyn Hester.
Shannon came to Foundry after five years at portfolio company, Gnip (acquired by Twitter in 2014), and over ten years working as an educator, author, and archivist at the University of Wyoming. Perennially curious and always up for a research project, she strives to solve problems before they arise and reduce friction through process optimization. A graduate of Randolph-Macon Woman’s College and the University of Wyoming, Shannon lives in the foothills above Boulder with her spouse, two Great Pyrenees, and a 21 year- old cat. When not herding cats at Foundry, you can find her doing the same at her home on the edge of a national forest.
