Art’s 20+ years in the investment business, including impact investments, make him a recognized and respected leader, with strong expertise in distribution, understanding the investor, and providing opportunity for poor people and underserved communities worldwide. Prior to MicroPlace, Art was VP of Marketing, Sales and Services for Calvert Foundation, a pioneer in impact investing and one of our longest serving issuers. Prior to Calvert, Art spent over 10 years in marketing and sales for various firms including TCW Investment Management, Franklin Management, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and Shearson Lehman.
Art joined MicroPlace because he sees it as an innovative and inspiring company that, as he puts it, bridges “the space between Forbes and Mother Jones.” He looks forward to handing a world equally driven by head and heart to his children, who continue to amaze and inspire him every day. And when they leave the nest and continue to inspire him from college, he will resume flying, photography, and other actual hobbies.
Education: BA Political Science, George Washington University
