Council Member Greg Landsman
City of Cincinnati
Participates in 1 Session
Greg Landsman is CEO of the 767 Group, which supports communities in the United States and overseas achieve large-scale community and systemic change, especially on behalf of children and families. Landsman was also elected in 2017 to serve on Cincinnati City Council. The former Executive Director of the nationally recognized StrivePartnership, Landsman spearheaded the successful Cincinnati Preschool Promise, which will provide two years of quality preschool in Cincinnati. This “first-in-the-nation” investment passed in November 2016 with the largest margin of victory in the history of school levies in Cincinnati. Landsman also created Every Child Capital, a philanthropic venture fund that hopes to revolutionize philanthropy by investing in high impact programs that are able to attract sustainable public funding. This unique fund now provides a book a month to every economically disadvantaged child in Cincinnati, for the first five years of their lives, and is poised to significantly expand the number of first-time mothers who get the support they need in their child’s first 1,000 days. Landsman currently serves as Senior Advisor to the fund. In Israel, Landsman provides strategic support to the Tauber/Rashi Rise Together Initiative, a community-driven, city-based collective impact initiative, which is reshaping how two municipalities are investing in their young people, particularly young Ethiopian Jews. Before joining The StrivePartnership, Landsman ran the Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. As Director, Landsman oversaw an annual budget of $7-12 million, and helped to launch summer food and learning programs throughout the state, new mentoring and fatherhood programs, and established the Ohio Social Entrepreneurship Initiative. Landsman spent several years on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., before his time in the Governor’s Office. He has extensive national, state, local, and now global experience, and believes strongly in the power of people who come together to accomplish big things. Landsman earned a bachelor’s degree from Ohio University in 1999 in Economic and Political Science and a master’s in theological studies from Harvard University in 2004.
