Geoffrey Hamlyn is a strategic planning and business consultant whose background includes leading and consulting for a diverse array of organizations, including domestic and international nonprofits, federal agencies, and private hospitals. As an Advisor at trepwise, a New Orleans-based impact consulting firm, Geoffrey has worked with dozens of non-profit, for-profit, and public sector organizations. In this role, Geoffrey has developed deep experience across the New Orleans arts and culture landscape, working with institutions such as the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts Institute, University of New Orleans School of the Arts, Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Arts Council New Orleans. He also supported Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s mayoral transition team as a facilitator for the Creative Industries Subcommittee.
A native of El Paso, Texas, Geoffrey’s passion for the arts began early, as he watched members of his family perform in chamber and orchestral ensembles and serve on boards for El Paso Opera and El Paso Pro Musica. An accomplished violist, he trained under prominent instructors at the University of Texas at Austin and the Juilliard School, and has performed with orchestral and chamber ensembles throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. Today, Geoffrey is thrilled to bring this love of music, arts, and culture to the organizations he works with every day.
Prior to joining trepwise, Geoffrey worked as a senior consultant at Deloitte, where he partnered with federal agencies to carry out multi-year communications and stakeholder engagement strategies. In the nonprofit realm, Geoffrey has partnered with dozens of nonprofits ranging in both size and focus, from a $10,000 youth development charity to a multi-billion-dollar global disease prevention effort. His diverse experience extends to work as an executive director of a nonprofit dedicated to youth in Haiti, where he successfully scaled operations and secured funding to fully rebuild two earthquake ravaged facilities.
Geoffrey is a proud New Orleanian, where he lives in Uptown with his husband Dr. Stephen Proctor and dog Sadie.
