Jamie Facciola
Oakland Indie Awards Event Director

Jamie is responsible for planning, designing, and producing the 2017 Oakland Indie Awards, an economic development initiative that aims to build prosperity in our community by celebrating our local economy. An ardent supporter of independent businesses, she believes in harnessing the power of community capital and equity-based ownership models to spread prosperity.

Jamie is passionate about regenerative business models that decouple environmental impact from growth. Prior to joining Beneficial State Foundation, she founded and led Repair Revolution, a local platform that delivers repair services, reduces waste, builds community, and supports innovative reuse of materials.  Repair Revolution was the proud recipient of the Greenie Award for environmental leadership at the 2016 Oakland Indie Awards.

Jamie has worked with companies large and small on climate change and corporate sustainability issues. She holds a BA in Environmental Studies from the University of Southern California and a Master of Environmental Science and Management from the Bren School at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
