Leadership Series – Ann Marie Stieritz, Liberty Fellowship

June 20, 2023

The Who’s on the Move Leadership Series highlights people leading extraordinary change in South Carolina. We will be focusing on the journeys of 12 top leaders per year from across the state with a short video as well as a full audio version of the conversation. The interview will also be available on Apple and Spotify. Just search for the Who’sOnTheMove SC podcast.

You will see a diverse group of leaders in this series, men and women, white and non white, old and young – entrepreneurs, leaders of academics institutions, executive directors of non profits, and others. 

We would like to thank our sponsor of this video series:


Ann Marie Stieritz, Liberty Fellowship

Ann Marie Stieritz is President & CEO of Liberty Fellowship, the only state-based leadership development experience of its kind in the United States.  

Liberty Fellowship brings together proven leaders with diverse perspectives in small groups to learn from each other and from some of the most influential thinkers of the past and present. While the Fellowship begins with a rigorous 18-month seminar curriculum in the U.S. and abroad, it continues to shape the lives of Fellows with lifelong engagement opportunities and a powerful network of mentors and colleagues. As a result of the experience, Liberty Fellows are better prepared to make the difficult decisions required at the highest levels of leadership and to scale their impact. 

Liberty Fellowship was founded in 2004 by Greenville businessman Hayne Hipp and his wife Anna Kate. The organization has grown into an independent nonprofit organization led by the Fellows themselves. There are now 330 Liberty Fellows. 87% of them remain in South Carolina. 76% are from the business sector, 12% are from the nonprofit sector, and 12% are from the public sector.   

To be considered as a candidate for Liberty Fellowship, you must be nominated. Nominations are open through July 1, 2023, at libertyfellowshipsc.org/nominate. The next nomination opportunity will be in the spring of 2025.
