Steve Mendelsohn received his MBA from Harvard Business School and worked for 10 years at American Express in a variety of marketing and management positions, and 3 years at Razorfish, a diversified internet consulting company. But he felt the need to do something meaningful and switched direction to work in the non-profit arena. As the Executive Director of cultural and human rights organizations, he has managed programs that help youth, refugees, LGBT people, women and more. Before coming to the Trevor Project he was the Executive Director of Arts Engine, an organization that creates, distributes and supports social-issue film and video. He also worked at Project Rebirth, which produced the Peabody Award winning documentary film, “Rebirth.” He is the board co-president of NewFest, and was instrumental in crafting their new strategic direction. At the Trevor Project Steve oversees Community Engagement, Marketing, Communications and Government Affairs as part of Trevor’s management team.
