BIO

As president and chief executive officer (CEO), David Offensend brings a strong business acumen as well as nonprofit experience to his oversight of EDC's domestic and international work. He leads the senior management council, which directs the organization's major programmatic and business activities, and is a member of EDC's board of trustees.

Prior to EDC, Offensend was the chief operating officer (COO) for America Achieves, a nonprofit organization that helps communities and states build high-quality educational systems and prepare young people for college and careers.

Previous to America Achieves, Offensend served for 10 years as COO of the New York Public Library, the nation's largest public library system with 90 affiliated branches. During his tenure, he was responsible for the digitization of the library system, increased circulation by 70 percent, and extended the reach and quality of the research and education programs.

Before moving to the nonprofit sector, Offensend cofounded Evercore Partners, an independent investment banking advisory firm. He also worked in the investment organization of Robert M. Bass as well as at Lehman Brothers, where he was president and CEO of Lehman Brothers Merchant Banking Partnership.

Offensend has served on multiple boards, including Princeton University, Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, and Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation.

STATEMENT FROM THE President and Chief Executive Officer

""Using education to empower people to live healthy, productive lives is at the very core of EDC's work. Taking interventions that research has shown to be successful, developing them into programs, and partnering with governments, schools, and practitioners to implement these programs is a hallmark of our method. We take what works and make it real.""
