Our Thought Leadership Team
Thought leadership is a team sport, requiring close collaboration with our clients and the right blend of analytical, editorial, and publishing skills. Our team has the expertise needed to develop visionary thought leadership grounded on rigorous analysis and delivered through 360-degree outreach.
Our thought leadership experts include alumni from the Economist Group, Oxford Economics, Harvard Business Publishing, Peppers+Rogers, IHS, Pearson Group, CFO Magazine, and Institutional Investor. Our team includes top editors, business writers, and marketing specialists, headed by Lou Celi, founder of thought leadership at both the Economist Intelligence Unit and Oxford Economics, where he served in various management, publishing, and marketing leadership roles.
We employ 20 economists, six with PhDs, who have expertise in macro- and micro-analysis, urban economics, and applied economics for business. Our economists have worked in the private sector for firms such as PwC, Charles River Associates, and Jones Lang Lasalle. They have also worked in the public sector for the Cities of Philadelphia and St Louis, the Federal Reserve, US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Our economists include professors from Wharton Business School, University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, Bryn Mawr College, and Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business.
