Holden Lee (Tides Foundation)




Holden Lee, Chief Investment Officer, and CFO

I am a purpose-driven leader with deep experience in helping corporations, mission-driven entities, and individuals achieve their strategic objectives. My unique perspective comes from more than twenty-five years of hands-on creative work in the capital markets at the intersection of the public, private, and philanthropic spheres, including public-private partnerships, portfolio management, and ESG / sustainable / impact investing. In assuming multiple roles in my career - as an investor, operating executive, transaction lead, grantee, consultant, board member - I see patterns and solutions across systems, sectors, and issue areas. I am particularly interested in working with evolving organizations and families and developing innovative investment strategies that mobilize resources to help solve the pressing issues of our time.
