Ned Cloonan Associates: Strategic Philanthropy
Ned was one of the first senior business leaders in the US to recognize the serious challenges confronting women in many parts of the world. His more strategic, impact investing/social enterprise approach, impressed me and my colleagues and shaped our own thinking. He was a perfect partner, advisor, and colleague. Aude de Thuin
