Brian Walsh works at the intersection of social impact and business value. As Executive Director of Liquidnet For Good, he oversees corporate impact for Liquidnet, the New York-based global institutional trading network. In 2007 Brian helped launch Liquidnet For Good, which is re-imagining the total impact that a company can have in support of the common good. The mission of Liquidnet For Good is to leverage the full range of the company’s resources – human capital, technology, creative capital, convening capabilities and financial capital – in pursuit of a better world. Beyond extensive employee engagement programs to maximize local impact and a comprehensive partnership with a youth village for orphans in Rwanda to achieve global impact, Liquidnet’s “Markets for Good” initiative applies the company’s core competency – using technology to make markets more efficient – to realize systemic impact. Liquidnet is collaborating with others, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the William & Flora Hewlett Foundation, to help build a social sector powered by information. A regular speaker about philanthropy, impact investing, and corporate impact, Brian graduated from Georgetown University and previously consulted philanthropic organizations.
