Prior to joining NCLC, Steve was the Director of Strategic Development at the ACLU of Massachusetts from 2009-2016, where he led all fundraising and donor communication efforts and played a leading role in strategic planning and institutional advancement initiatives. Earlier in his career, Steve held a variety of senior management positions at the Boston-based direct marketing firm Share Group, Inc., where his non-profit and political clients included organizations like Oxfam America, the Southern Poverty Law Center, NAACP, Human Rights Campaign, EMILY’s List, Obama for America, and the national ACLU. And (long) before that, he was a campaign manager and legislative aide for a Massachusetts State Representative, and an organizer, campaign director and member of the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group.
Steve’s passion for NCLC’s complex work is informed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s simple statement: “This country should not be run for the biggest corporations and largest financial institutions.”
