Anthony Reese is Olive Grove's Chief Finance Officer and Vice-President of the Financial Management Practice Area. This position is the latest incarnation of a life spent building capacity in the nonprofit sector. Anthony is a graduate of UCLA, and the Coro Foundation's Public Affairs Program in Los Angeles. He holds a Master's Degree from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government where he specialized in urban economic development. It was there that Anthony was first introduced to the work of nonprofits, joining a group of friends from Harvard's business and law schools to create City Year, an urban youth corps that grew to international prominence and became a model for the national service movement.
Anthony's deep interest in the sector drew him to New York City's Robin Hood Foundation, where served as Chief Financial Officer and Director of Management Assistance. There he helped channel financial resources, technical assistance and other services to community-based nonprofits. The satisfying experience of helping community entrepreneurs build institutions under their ideas led him to serve in a variety of management service organizations from LA's Center for Nonprofit Management, to Oakland's National Community Development Institute. Love for this type of service also led him to create his own nonprofit consulting firm, Mananson Consulting, in 1992.
As the former Associate Director of the Greenlining Institute, Anthony managed the finance function while creating corporate/community partnerships to implement a number of community-based economic development and technology projects.
Mr. Reese served as Associate Director to the National Community Development Institute (NCDI), an intermediary created to provide culturally-based capacity building services to communities of color. He helped build NCDI's fiscal and administrative systems, and provided facilitation, training, coaching and implementation support to community boards and neighborhood collaboratives engaged in comprehensive community change initiatives.
Most recently Anthony served as the Principal Financial Analyst of the California chapter of The Nature Conservancy, where he was responsible for developing and monitoring a $30m annual budget, implementing automated financial systems, and providing advanced financial modeling and analytics to the chapter board and executive staff.
