On Working at FSG
“Like many FSGers, I’m inspired by humanity’s compassion and creativity in coming up with new ways to solve the world’s problems, but frustrated by how often great ideas are undermined by lack of coordination, short-term thinking, misaligned incentives, and poor planning. I joined FSG to use my analytical and consulting skills to bridge that gap; I can think of few other places that would have enabled me to do so more effectively. Since 2006, I have been privileged to work with impressive people – clients, colleagues, and experts – on issues from sustainable agriculture to developing European philanthropy; and from access to banking services to promoting moderate Islam. The diversity of challenges is fascinating and energizing, but all are united by a common thread: finding new and better ways to change the world. I find it hard to imagine doing anything else.”
