Marketing + Communications 

Amy Pearson-Wales

Amy is a movement-builder with a passion for innovations that unlock wicked problems, remedy injustice, and improve lives. From building political will for product and systems solutions that strengthen immunization supply chains to marketing pre-filled single-use injectable contraceptive technologies that put women’s reproductive health in their own hands, Amy’s 15-year career in global public health communications reflects her belief in technology’s transformative value – when designed for good.

As Vice President of Marketing and Communications at Artefact, Amy is responsible for translating and amplifying our purpose-fueled design ethos, expertise, and impact. Prior to Artefact, Amy consulted with multiple global programs at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and, more recently, led communications for one of the USA’s largest philanthropy consortiums. Before that, she drove strategic marketing, communications, and public affairs for PATH’s Vaccine and Pharmaceutical Technologies Group for nearly 10 years.

Amy earned her Master’s degree in Comparative Health and Social Policy from Oxford University and a dual Bachelor’s of Arts in Spanish Literature and International Relations from Middlebury College. Outside of work, she is an avid Get-Out-The-Vote organizer as well as weekend gardener, who enjoys all things lakeside living-related with her husband and their two active young children.
