Tom Wilcox

Senior Advisor


In a Word: Passionate

Past: As the CEO of a national nonprofit, a renowned boarding and day school and an innovative community foundation I have sought to connect free market capitalism with social justice. Some believe they are opposing forces; I maintain that they can and must be interdependent.

Present: I try to bring age and I hope wisdom to a young, vibrant team of professionals. I have made a career’s worth of achievements and errors and hope that Due East’s clients and partners can benefit from all that I have learned.

Happiest When: Near the water with my wife Whitty Ransome and our two grown children Kate and Christopher.

Personal Cause: Racial equity. Worked with three institutions that were committed to realizing that elusive goal.
