Nir Levy earned his bachelor’s in business administration from Emory University Goizueta Business School in 2013

“Outside of working for a Jewish nonprofit, where I am responsible for leadership engagement and our strategic dashboard, I enjoy traveling, gardening, taking care of our three fostered cats and advocating for southwest Atlanta as a member of the Westview Community Organization.”

“I co-founded a business that sponsored an individual’s work visa to immigrate to the United States from Ukraine. Today, he is a Chief Technology Officer at a local tech company and lives in Atlanta with his family.

“I am a ninth-generation, Jerusalem-born immigrant to Atlanta. I paid my way through college by working as a nightlife photographer and website developer. I fell in love with my wife the moment she arrived at our first date.”

Levy is in a relationship with significant other, Kaleigh Levy.

Levy said, “I am grateful for the honor (as it will make my grandmother proud), I feel humbled to share the recognition with so many tremendous leaders and hope this 40 under 40 list inspires young adults to be true to who they are and share their voice with the world. This is an opportunity to double down on my opportunities to continue to build upon Atlanta’s legacy of hospitality, diversity, and culture.”
