Fede Menapace, Deputy Director

Fede serves as the Deputy Director for the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) where he oversees day-to-day operations and supports the MAPS team in developing and achieving our strategic priorities. Fede also helps guide MAPS subsidiaries on governance and financing matters.

Born and raised in the Trentino region in northern Italy, he began his career as a civil engineer, working on road and railway bridge construction projects in the Italian Alps. He then joined McKinsey & Co. in Milan, Italy, where he worked as a management consultant advising multinational financial institutions. He later moved to the internet technology sector, most recently at Segment in San Francisco, where he built and led the Business Operations and Business Development teams.

Fede aims to continue building bridges – this time, among people and organizations in the psychedelic medicine field – to further MAPS’ mission to provide broad and safe access to mental health treatments for those who are most in need.

Fede received his M.B.A. from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and his M.S. in structural engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
