Daniel Green

Director, Global Content and Campaigns

Daniel Green leads a team that creates integrated campaigns and content to advance the foundation’s policy, advocacy, and communications objectives.

Earlier, he was based in Johannesburg, South Africa, working as the foundation’s interim director for policy, advocacy, and communications for sub-Saharan Africa. Before that, he served as director of the foundation’s Program Advocacy and Communications team. In that role, he oversaw a US$250 million annual grant budget for more than 20 of the foundation’s global programs, along with a shift in resources from donor to developing countries and the creation of the foundation’s first Goalkeepers Report. Dan joined the foundation in 2011 to launch and lead its first global media funding portfolio, which led to new partnerships with organizations such as the Solutions Journalism Network, Nigeria Health Watch, Africa Check, USC’s Media Impact Project, and the comedy program “Stand-Up Planet.”

Before joining the foundation, Dan was senior vice president at Home Front Communications, a media and digital consulting firm based in Washington, D.C. Dan began his career as a journalist, spending 17 years with ABC News, working in the southern Africa bureau and then as a producer and senior producer at “Nightline.” His work earned him three Emmy Awards, a duPont-Columbia Gold Baton, and a Peabody. Dan serves on the global board of directors for Global Citizen, The Moth and The Impact Guild.

Dan has a bachelor’s degree Phi Beta Kappa from UCLA and a master’s degree in international affairs from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
