The Anti-Defamation League has appointed Steve Ginsburg as director of its Connecticut Regional Office.
Ginsburg, who took up his new post this week, joins ADL after serving as principal at Mission Measurement, a firm that works with foundations, corporations and nonprofits to predict and maximize their effectiveness and ROI (return on investment). Prior to that, he was director of development for ADL’s Greater Chicago/Upper Midwest Region, one of ADL’s largest offices.
Ginsburg also served as chief legal counsel to the Office of the Governor of the State of Illinois, and helped run the American Bar Association Rule of Law reform project in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, in the late 1990s. Additionally, he practiced law at Katten Muchin Rosenman and Huron Consulting Group.
“I feel very fortunate to have the chance to lead ADL’s Connecticut Regional Office,” he said. “During my years at ADL in Chicago, we were routinely inspired by the creativity and programmatic excellence in Connecticut. The diverse and talented board, staff and community at-large have handed me a tremendous foundation to build on. I am passionate about our mission, to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all, and I am excited to help lead ADL to the next level right here in Connecticut.”
“We are so thrilled that Steve will be joining us,” said Robyn Teplitzky, ADL’s Connecticut Regional Board chair. “The search committee worked tirelessly to ensure that our new regional director would bring experience, energy and enthusiasm to our region. We have found that in Steve.”
