Founder, Strategic Management Exchange

Rob, with his original partner Gae Savino, founded Resource Development Counsel which has provided philanthropic services to nonprofit organizations and institutions in the tri-state area for 18 years.  He has created a unique brand of philanthropic services, among them, action planning to solve immediate challenges and set priorities; action-oriented board recruitment and engagement; a best practices organizational assessment; an interactive exercise clarifying board/staff roles and responsibilities; and a resource development assessment. Given  the consistent positive response to these specialized services, Rob has consolidated his experiences into a new approach, the Strategic Management Exchange, www.strategicmanagementexchange.com,  designed to provide practical planning, governance, and best practices solutions for the short term and long term success of mission-driven organizations and businesses.

He has experience and expertise in identifying and mobilizing corporate, foundation and government funders for significant projects, such as building and equipping a network center for a statewide public television network, purchasing and rehabilitating buildings with civic revenue bonds and private funds for a major NYC human services agency, and producing and marketing multi-media training projects with private and  public funds for an international rehabilitation agency and a state-funded  long term care insurance education project.

Rob has extensive experience in organizational and broadcast management, including facilities capitalization as well as audience/donor and board  development, government relations and grants management.  He has facilitated numerous group discussions concerning conflict resolution, organizational mergers, public policy issues and strategic long range planning.

Rob  completed post-graduate work in philanthropic studies and in financial planning at New York University.  He holds an AB degree in philosophy from the Fordham University School of Philosophy and Letters and an MAC from the School of Journalism and Communications of the Universith of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
