As CEO of Common Wealth Enterprises (CWE), I promote, establish and partner with socially-minded ventures that are both sustainable and profitable. I try to tackle today’s social issues — both locally and globally — by redefining how organizations and individuals see their role in community engagement.
I believe it’s possible to establish a new American capitalist culture that places a high value on social commitment and community engagement. It is my priority to build and promote the growth of sustainable social enterprises by integrating community values and social change with innovative, capitalistic approaches.
On a tactical level, I help start businesses (or partner with existing businesses) that wish to advance a social or environmental mission using business methods in exchange profit sharing or equity. In that way, Common Wealth Enterprises operates as a diversified management holding company for social enterprises.
