Todd Wintner

Todd WinterTodd Wintner is a joint degree candidate for Master in Public Policy and Master in Business Administration at the Harvard Kennedy School and the Harvard Business School. Prior to Harvard, Todd worked in economic policy at the Brookings Institution and White House National Economic Council. He was also previously a management consultant in McKinsey and Company’s Washington, DC office. Todd’s passion lies at the intersection of business and public policy, specifically in examining for-profit solutions for economic development. He is a original member of a social venture fund start-up at HBS, Teaching Fellow at Harvard College for environmental studies and water management, and serves as a Board Fellow for Nyaya Health running a non-profit hospital in rural Nepal. Todd is also currently consulting for the Chicago Council on Global Affairs looking at strategies for the G8 agenda on global agriculture development — a passion emerging from his work in food policy at the White House and infrastructure development in Panama as a consultant. Originally from Pepper Pike, Ohio, Todd is excited to see where life takes him next but not without existential self-doubt over his ability to merge competing interests of financial sustainability and finding a socially rewarding career. He is also increasingly terrified by the perceived narrowing of life options and pressure to “get it right” when it comes to choosing a career out of grad school.
