Graham Browne will draw upon his experience as an education management strategy consultant, and as the leader of an education nonprofit, when he founds and leads a college-preparatory charter school in Queens, NY.

Most recently working with the Bridgespan Group in New York, Graham consulted with local and national foundations, advocacy organizations, and teacher organizations. In this role he supported the development of the advocacy, financial, and organizational strategies for Bridgespan’s clients and researched the role of community engagement in education reform to inform education consulting engagements nationwide.

Before joining Bridgespan, Graham worked as Special Assistant to the Director, and later as Acting Director, for the Education Equality Project (EEP), an education advocacy startup based in New York.
