Andrew Wolk Founder and CEO

Andrew Wolk is the founder and CEO of Root Cause. He has consulted with dozens of organizations in all sectors, including Open Society Foundations, uAspire (formerly known as ACCESS), Center for Urban Families, Massachusetts Housing and Shelter Alliance, and State Street Foundation.

I started Root Cause 10 years ago to combine the commitment to public service my grandfather had with the use of data and performance my father practiced into a simple premise—if we better allocate resources towards the performance of organizations pursuing social progress, we will see accelerated improvement in the lives of people across the country.
