Miya Nazzaro-Grampp, Managing Director

Miya Nazzaro-Grampp manages strategic projects focused on business process redesign, revenue development and diversification, financial growth strategies, and talent management. Her strategic and implementation skills leverage extensive knowledge of the philanthropic sector and small and mid-size business needs. She also brings experience as a corporate attorney focused on the formation and financing of emerging technology companies, as well as counseling emerging companies with respect to mergers and acquisitions, strategic relationships, and general corporate matters.

Ms. Nazzaro-Grampp has led collaborative initiatives for clients that resulted in a rapid expansion of core services with marginal cost increase, thereby decreasing the ratio of overhead versus operational costs.

As part of a business process redesign engagement, she increased organizational capacity and streamlined project management to increase revenue by over $1.5M within one year.

Ms. Nazzaro-Grampp worked with a client to identify and successfully acquire awards from USAID and the Department of State resulting in revenue in excess of $1.5M to $3M per year, since 2006.

She has helped to negotiate memoranda of understanding between strategic partners that included compensation structures, duration of commitment, reporting structure, measurement methodology and goals, and communication structure. These agreements were later used to settle an accountability dispute and avoid a costly legal process.

As an attorney, Ms. Nazzaro-Grampp advised clients in relation to strategic planning matters on substantive issues including corporate law, technology spinout options, employment matters, and compensation and incentive plans. She represented entrepreneurs' companies and venture capital firms to draft and negotiate multiple private equity financing transactions and corporate transactions. In addition, she has represented clients through successful merger and acquisition processes, including a reverse merger and buyout for over $100M.
