As a shareholder of RISE, Ron serves on the organisation Advisory Board where his experience in starting, running, and advising companies is put to work on both the evolution of RISE as well as the development of the RISE offerings.

Ron is passionate about improving systems and processes for organisations involved in creating a better world.  He has been an enthusiastic supporter of RISE since it existed only as a vision of Simon’s.  He believes strongly in the breakthrough capabilities and potential of collaboration. Ron was involved in the earliest development of the toolsets and processes for RISE facilitators, from trust building to collaboration tools in critical thinking, priority setting, decision making and communication.

Ron has broad business experience in publishing, predominantly as CEO of ABC-CLIO, a publisher of reference and educational databases, journals, and books for the last 27 years. He is comfortable working across any global location having co-founded companies in Haiti and India, and worked with other companies on five continents. As principal of BOMA Investments, LLC, he provided strategic advisory services and financing to over 45 social and environmental  companies. Ron is a principal sponsor of The Boehm Gladen Foundation.

At BOMA, Ron works primarily with the investment and financial advisory aspects, sharing with both social entrepreneurs and new impact investors his learning from failures and successes.  He was a catalyst for development of a revenue royalty approach for compensating impact investors for longer term, high risk investments, as an alternative to equity.

Ron has been at the centre of bringing complementary organisations together, including Young Presidents Organization, Ashoka, World Merit, Synergos, and Nexus.  These connections between organisations often lead to numerous projects as the respective members develop their own connections and start projects. He is a past executive committee member of YPO’s Social Engagement Network and is a board member of the International Trauma Healing Institute and Green Ocean Sciences.
