Guiding decision-making to maximize organizational effectiveness and community impact

Jared’s natural and no-nonsense approach to evaluation, capacity building, performance management, and organizational development has seamlessly guided clients confidently through complex issues in a diverse array of sectors and content areas.

From taste-testing handmade chocolates at a micro-enterprise in rural Nicaragua to interviewing a speedboat driver on a stormy ocean, Jared is energized by the resilience and ingenuity of change champions at every level. Equally at ease with members of congress, youth advocates, foundation program officers, and nonprofit executive directors, he is motivated to ensure diverse voices are heard, understood, and lifted up in a way that guides decision-making at multiple levels.

Author and contributor to more than a dozen publications, Jared is a sought-after speaker and leading thinker in a variety of areas, including: organizational effectiveness, policy and advocacy evaluation, and networks and coalitions.

At TCC Group:
  • Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: Jared orchestrated the development and implementation of a highly-respected strategic evaluation framework for the national multi-year “Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action” campaign, a collaborative effort of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and AARP to build healthier communities through enhancing nursing practice and roles. A trusted advisor, he provides sustained counsel grounded in evaluation data to the core strategy group at RWJF and AARP regarding allocation of scarce resources and opportunities to maximize the volunteer army of nurses organized across the United States.
  • Johnson & Johnson: As an expert in evaluation and organizational reporting with experience across various corporate social responsibility programs, Jared guided the corporate contributions department to a value-driven reporting framework aimed at improving their own performance and ability to demonstrate department value and impact at the organizational level. He is actively advising on operationalizing a rubric of key performance indicators to infuse best practices in philanthropic giving, employee engagement in social mission work, and sharpening reporting to internal and external stakeholders.
  • Feeding America: With an eye toward how systems work up and down stream, Jared helped Feeding America understand how their Child HungerCorps Fellowship program delivered value to addressing child hunger at the individual, organizational, and systems level. The evaluation gave evidence about how placing young individuals in food banks impacted the individual fellows and what strengths and challenges it brought to resource-strapped food banks in urban, rural, and suburban settings.
Before TCC Group:
  • International Rescue Committee in Azerbaijan: Working with local communities affected by conflict, Jared worked on a series of complex projects, including the design of an evaluation for large integrated community development projects, youth program development, and enhancement of general organizational capacity for NGOs, and the close-down and start-up of several multi-million dollar USAID and corporate grant-funded programs.
  • United Nations in the NGO Section of the Department of Public Information: Jared assisted with the development and implementation of several major conferences for NGOs, including post-conflict development, working on general outreach to NGOs, speechwriting, and coordinating media outreach efforts.
