Exalt Education, Empowering Children

Dennis Tiede

Chief Operating Officer


Dennis Tiede started his career working as an assistant trader on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. That experience motivated him to move into the social sector where he has worked for the past 15 years. For five of those years, he was the business manager of a high-performing network of several charter schools in Portland, Oregon called the Arthur Academies.
Before joining Exalt as chief operating officer, Mr. Tiede spent a year at a high performing charter management organization in Boston. This experience reinforced his belief in the importance of Exalt’s unique mission and values. He holds a BA from CUNY Hunter College of New York and is married with two children.
