Mark Newberg

Biography:

Mark currently serves as Director of Impact Strategies for Womble Bond Dickinson, a transatlantic law firm. Mark leads the firm’s Impact and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)-focused strategic consulting work, building on his decade of experience in the Impact Economy. Over that decade Mark has led Impact/ESG-related initiatives ranging from for-profit business strategy development, to Federal policy creation, to high-growth entrepreneurship, to disaster recovery, and beyond.

Mark’s work focuses at the intersection of profit and purpose, helping clients grow their competitive advantage with Impact. He is responsible for creating the Simple Vetting Process, a proprietary approach that simplifies the identification and integration of Impact opportunities into clients’ core business models. He has also developed the theory of Impact “Hidden in Plain Sight,” a way of explaining Impact’s integration into everyday commerce. In addition, Mark has worked with Womble’s CMF team to develop an automated metrics dashboard, for use by the firm’s Impact clients to measure and monitor progress toward established goals.

Mark is a guest contributor to both Forbes and the Huffington Post, on topics related to Impact Investing and the Impact Economy, and produces Womble’s Impact Whiteboard educational video series. He also serves as a mentor at MassChallenge, and a judge for the Louisiana Startup Prize.

Prior to joining Womble, Mark served as Interim President of T2 Venture Creation, Deputy Director of the Global Innovation Summit, a Senior Policy Advisor at the US Small Business Administration, and a Post-Katrina Advisor to the New Orleans City Council.
