Today, Case Foundation CEO Jean Case announced that Lisa Green Hall is joining the organization as a Senior Fellow to lead the Foundation’s Impact Investing work in collaboration with the Beeck Center at Georgetown University. Hall will focus on expanding and targeting the Case Foundation’s long-term efforts to drive more investors and capital into the sector and to break down barriers to entry so new investors have the information, learnings and insights they need when seeking both financial and social returns.

Hall previously served as Managing Director at Anthos Asset Management, headquartered in the Netherlands and served as CEO and President of Calvert Foundation from 2010 to 2013, following her tenure as head of the investment portfolio from 2005 to 2010. She served in the Clinton Administration in 1999 as a policy advisor at the National Economic Council where she worked on the creation of the New Markets Investment Tax Credit.
In this role, Hall will serve as a joint Senior Fellow at both the Case Foundation and the Beeck Center, which mobilizes talent to drive social impact at scale by leveraging data, technology, policy, and finance to improve people’s lives. She also serves on several boards including City First Bank and Habitat for Humanity International.
