Meet Christy Uffelman – a member of the 2016 class of 40 Pittsburghers Under 40 who are changing our region – and the world – for the better.
Christy Uffelman  Partner-in-charge, Pittsburgh Office, Align Leadership
Christy Uffelman was the first woman executive at Mascaro Construction. Later, she launched Align Leadership’s East Coast office, where she builds mentoring programs to help cultivate female leaders from the Millennial crowd. Under her, Align Leadership partnered with such firms as Consol Energy, Eat’n Park and FedEx Ground.
She volunteers with the Girl Scouts as a troop leader and is the Pittsburgh Chair of the 2020 Women on Boards. She serves on the United Way’s Women’s Leadership Council Executive Team and the ATHENA committee of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development.
A native of Sheraden, she earned bachelor’s degrees in psychology and corporate communications from Duquesne University before launching her first company at age 27.
Her speaking gigs have included appearances before the National Association of Women in Construction, the International Women and Film Summit, the Business and Professional Women and the Commercial Real Estate Women.
My favorite Pittsburgh thing… “When I am talking with a friend at an event — and run into another a friend who I am then super-excited to introduce to the first — only to discover that they already know one another! Good people know good people. I love that about our town.”
