YASAMAN MARTIN, Senior Consultant

“Graham-Pelton leadership puts its people first, which creates a culture of ownership where employees want to excel – not only for the success of our clients but also for the firm and our colleagues.”

I’m inspired by the missions of our clients and motivated at the opportunity to help advance many of them. I’ve had the opportunity to learn about so many important missions that I otherwise would never know much about – everything from equestrian work, to Jewish life, to the game of chess! With all this variety, I’ve found focus, one of our core values, to be essential to our work. It’s my job to stay laser focused on the task at hand so that clients can remain focused on accomplishing their missions.

BRIAN O’LEARY, Vice President

“We are serving our clients at a critical moment when they need help to push them to a new level.”

I’m motivated by the intellectual challenges that we encounter with a shifting philanthropic landscape, and people who are comfortable with constant change succeed here at Graham-Pelton. In addition to being change agents, our people are without exception inclusive, smart, and professional. We are dedicated to and curious about our ever-changing industry.
