Don Irie


Working in private and nonprofit sectors in various industries including philanthropy, health care, biotechnology, and consulting has given me a wide range of experiences in strategic planning, financial management, and leadership. When it’s helpful, I bring these practices and concepts that I’ve learned along the way to help broaden the leadership team’s thinking at Informing Change.

I’m on the governing board of Informing Change because my values align with the company’s values and the work it does in service of communities. That alignment is no accident; I’m in this role because, as Ellen Irie’s husband, I supported her as she developed and shaped the company when she was President and CEO. I share the values she brought to her work at Informing Change with her clients and with staff. It’s my honor to support the leadership and staff at Informing Change, and in so doing, fortify what Ellen built.
