Board of Advisors

The founding principals of The Numad Group partner with non-profit organizations because we wish to continue to be active participants in society. We are driven by a desire to work for social good in our homes, communities and alongside organizations across the world.

We know this perspective has evolved for us over time, and is the direct result of not just our education and travel, but most of all because of our relationships with our families and mentors who exemplify this way of living… this determination for a just society. A Board of Advisors was formed in 2012 to continue to strengthen the guidance, mentorship and relationships that continue to challenge and direct us as individuals and as a firm, and to help us to offer the services of the firm to non-profit organizations. In doing so, together, we will make a positive impact in society, particularly where traditional efforts have not succeeded.
