As a visionary of the socially responsible business movement, Joe Sibilia is founder and CEO of Meadowbrook Lane Capital (MBLC) (www.meadowbrooklane.com), described by the Wall Street Journal as a "socially responsible investment bank" specializing in turning values into valuation.
He is also the CEO of CSRwire, (www.csrwire.com), the social responsibility newswire service that distributes and archives corporate social responsibility and sustainability news and information to journalists, analysts, investors, activists, academics, public relations and investor relations professionals worldwide.
Joe also founded the Gasoline Alley Foundation (www.gasolinealleyfoundation.org), a 501(c) 3 corporation that has incubated forty-three small businesses since 1985 and teaches inner city and/or underprivileged persons to be successful entrepreneurs using socially responsible/sustainable business practices while revitalizing inner city neighborhoods.
Through MLBC, Joe has worked with a number of Socially Responsible Companies and has been widely recognized for his work in attempting to take Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream private, while creating a private stock exchange for CSR companies. MBLC successfully preserved many of the founders' social initiatives, and advanced the connection between good corporate citizenship and increased share value.
Joe recently co-authored, street smart sustainability: the entrepreneur's guide to profitably greening your organizations DNA, with David Mager.
His long range plan for the CSRwire is to establish a "platform for innovative revenue sharing applications advancing the 'movement' towards a more economically just and environmentally sustainable society and away from single bottom line capitalism."
