Jimmy loves working for an organization that is unleashing the power of business to address the critical issue of food security in Africa. He sees his role at PFS as helping to create an ecosystem of support around entrepreneurs addressing pressing social or environmental issues. Before PFS, Jimmy worked to strengthen bootstrapping entrepreneurs and startups while living in Uganda, built global partnerships between large multinational companies to invest in education in emerging markets, and managed a strategic social impact initiative to bring energy and economic opportunity to underserved communities in India and Africa. Jimmy received his undergraduate degree from Notre Dame and an MBA in Finance and Entrepreneurship from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University. An avid world traveler, he has lived on four continents and visited nearly 50 countries. Jimmy also enjoys kayaking, sand volleyball, grilling out—and cultivates an irrational love for Notre Dame football.
