Jenna Gelgand Director of Finance

Jenna Gelgand joins Propeller with over a decade of small- to medium-sized business consulting, with a focus on data-driven business development and improving the overall financial health of her clients. 

Most recently, Jenna oversaw the Local Producer Loan Program (LPLP) at Whole Foods Market, which provides low-interest loans to the grocer’s suppliers. Through the for-profit program, Jenna grew a diverse roster of budding businesses, ensuring that capital was not a barrier to success. In addition to operating the loan program, Jenna supported due diligence for the Company’s investment activity, as well as monthly and quarterly financial reporting to internal and Amazon leadership.

Jenna earned her MBA at the University of Texas at Austin where her team won the 2014 New Venture Creation competition (product: cashew spread). She loves that her job is to help mission-driven entrepreneurs help bring healthy foods to curious customers every day.

Raised by two entrepreneurs in Austin, Texas, Jenna is proud of her community’s entrepreneurial spirit. When not in the office, Jenna enjoys spending time outdoors and exploring her city with her son Elijah.
