    April 16, 2015

    Photo of Reagan Administration James RosebushJames Rosebush was a Reagan White House official and is a widely recognized leader in building and managing corporate wealth and philanthropic organizations. For over twenty years he has been CEO of an international consulting firm, GrowthStrategy, Inc., advising on management strategies, finance, marketing, and communications, throughout the world. He pioneered a holistic approach to organizational consulting which has resulted in measurable growth in earnings or assets under management. He reflects on this leadership in his weekly column on BusinessInsider.com appearing every Tuesday.

    During his tenure in the White House, Mr. Rosebush was President Reagan’s “point man” on philanthropy and public-private partnerships. As a commissioned senior advisor at The White House, he managed the President’s favorite domestic program called, PRIVATE SECTOR INITIATIVES, designed to engender private sector solutions for public problems, a precursor of social impact investing. Mr. Rosebush was also the longest-serving Chief of Staff to the First Lady. In this role, he was one of a small group of top aides to President Reagan and served as a member of the President’s historic Theme For The Day communications team.

    He has an MA degree in Public Affairs from Boston University and a BA in Business from The Principia College. He has lectured and taught as an adjunct professor at Georgetown and George Washington Universities on corporate public issues and the history of philanthropy. His book, First Lady Public Wife, was lauded as the first book that assessed the non-elected job of First Lady.

    A native of Flint, Michigan, Mr. Rosebush resides in Washington, DC area with his wife of forty years, the former Nancy Paull. They have two grown daughters and four grandchildren.
