Elliott Broidy Wears Multiple Philanthropic Hats
Prior to becoming CEO, Broidy started his career with Arthur Andersen and Co., formerly a “Big Five” accounting firm. He then worked in investments as a Managing Director for Bell Enterprises from 1982-1991. In 2002, he was a founder of Markstone Capital Partners, after previous experience as the Co-Founder and Chairman at Markstone Capital Group LLC.
CEO Elliott Broidy also uses his personal life to help develop his repertoire. As a Board of Directors member for the Republican Jewish Coalition, he proves his love for not only the United States but also for the state of Israel. His dedication to protecting the United States is also a priority, as Broidy was appointed by Secretary Michael Chertoff to serve on the United States Homeland Security Council. He also spends his time as a member of the Young Presidents Organization, which provides young chief executives a global network of trusted mentors.
As proud Los Angeles native, even the Los Angeles Police Foundation has his approval as Board of Directors member. Philanthropy is Broidy’s main focal point, especially in the L.A. area. Two different Veterans Service Organizations have gained support from the investor, as he believes military members deserve the best care upon their arrival home from active duty. Broidy helped start Hounds for Heroes, a Los Angeles nonprofit that provides service dogs for military members, and also backs The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) to assist veterans suffering from PTSD.
His support for his hometown even shines on screen, as Broidy was the Executive Producer for the film ‘Sugar.’ ‘Sugar’ depicts the true-life story of Rotimi Rainwater, homeless on the streets of Venice Beach, Cali. after her family died in a harrowing car accident.
The film’s impact even travelled across the country, where it was screened for members of the United States Congress and their staffs on Capitol Hill. The film is of special interest to this diverse philanthropist, as he served on the Council of Guardians of Aviva Family and Children’s Services for over 15 years.
In addition to the never-ending list of ventures, Broidy is also the Chairman at Event Solutions International, Inc. (ESI Holdings, Inc.), and is on the Board of Directors at Foley Timber and Land Company. and for L.P. and Vantis Capital Management. He also serves on multiple Boards and Committees at The University of Southern California (his alma mater) for the Marshall School of Business, where he received a B.S. in Accounting and Finance, and is a qualified C.P.A.
Broidy holds many causes and projects close to his heart, and continues to bring these issues to light anyway possible, especially in Southern California.
