Timothy Flacke is the Executive Director of Commonwealth, a mission-driven organization that builds solutions to make people financially secure. Commonwealth collaborates with consumers, the financial services industry, policy makers, and non-profit organizations to discover ideas, pilot solutions, and drive innovations to scale, so that wealth – of opportunity, tools, financial assets – is possible for everyone. Tim co-launched the organization in 2001 and has served on its board of directors since that time, drawing on twenty-five years’ experience in the non-profit and private sectors helping working people to build savings. Commonwealth’s efforts have spawned new financial products and public policies responsible for helping over 550,000 people to save nearly $1B. Before Commonwealth, Tim worked as a consultant in the field of financial empowerment and asset development, and held leadership positions in corporate human resources and risk management. He holds a Master’s in Public Policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Boston College.
Timothy was a participant at the 2018 Economic Security Summit, which was held July 9-12, 2018, in Aspen, Colorado.
