Josh Lamont

For 20 years, Josh has been working with organizations to realize their visions for a better world with strategic communications, brand and fundraising programs that work. The WALL STREET JOURNAL described Josh as a “thought leader… for Social Good,” and USA TODAY in 2014 highlighted his work “taking
#GivingTuesday from ‘idea’ to global phenomenon with innovative [PR] tactics.”

In 2010, Josh was appointed by President Obama as a spokesperson and later a White House Advance Press lead for Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden. A once in a lifetime opportunity that required quick, quality work. Strategic Thinking. And a DOER.

Prior to his White House appointment, Josh served in leadership roles at amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research and GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network. In the private sector, he was a Vice President at Lehman Brothers, Director of Corporate Giving and head of an annual employee giving campaign benefiting the The Lehman Brothers Foundations. While at the foundations, he was elected to GLSEN’s national board and co-authored Business of Change, a resource best practices in effective communications and development for non-profits and their corporate partners.

Since 2014, Josh has been providing strategic communications, development, board training and additional consulting services primarily for non-profits, public education campaigns and a select group of private companies. Committed to giving back, in addition to the GLSEN board, he recently served on the Alliance For Full Acceptance’s advisory council and Feeding America’s Lowcountry Food Bank board of directors, chairing the development committee.

Now based in San Francisco, Josh is a graduate of Cornell University. He spent most of his career in New York City and Washington, DC – and a significant amount of time in airports, hotels and sofas across the world.
