About Amanda

Amanda Lannert is the CEO of Jellyvision, the maker of interactive benefits communication software ALEX. More than 1,500 companies (including 114 of the Fortune 500 and two-fifths of the country's 25 largest companies) use ALEX to help their employees understand complex topics, from choosing a healthcare insurance plan to saving for retirement or navigating a leave of absence.

Since taking over Jellyvision’s helm in 2011, Amanda has played a key role in the company’s success: she spearheaded Jellyvision’s pivot from a services agency to a profitable software-as-a-service company, growing its employee count from 100 to 400 in only five years. In the last three years, Jellyvision’s customer count has increased by 250%. On top of that, in spite of the company’s rapid growth in the last five years, Jellyvision is profitable and hasn’t lost its sense of humor.

Meanwhile, the company has been recognized as the Best Software Company and Best Culture by the Moxies, the 2015 Lighthouse winner by the ITA, a top 10 best place to work in Chicago by The Chicago Tribune and the #1 place for millennials to work in Chicago according to Crain’s.

Prior to joining The Jellyvision Lab, Amanda managed global brands for Kellogg’s while at Leo Burnett, where she developed strategies and implemented campaigns for Pop-Tarts and Nutri-Grain bars, in addition to spending two years in a new business and new brand development think tank.

Amanda was named CEO of the Year at the Moxie Awards in 2014 and 2015, Woman in Tech in 2016, Woman of the Year for the Chicago Rotary Club of 2018, and was recognized as 2016’s Industry Champion and 2018’s CEO of the Year by the Illinois Technology Association. She has been profiled in the Chicago Tribune and Crain’s. Amanda is also active in Chicago’s startup community, serving as a board member of SpotHero, KnowledgeHound, NowSecure and JB Training Solutions, as a Council Member for the Zell Fellows Program at Kellogg, and as a member of ChicagoNEXT. She also serves as “Super Mentor” for Chicago incubators Impact Engine and TechStars, where she was also named Mentor of the Year. Amanda attended Haverford College and Edinburgh University. She is quick to laugh and enjoys a good cupcake.
