It is a tremendous joy to announce that Thomas McDonnell joins L’Ecole des Enfants as our North America Events Manager. Thomas is a rare and precious gem that does his work with an infectious passion and professionalism. He also embodies the strong traits of a genuine team player. Thomas is also a graceful gentleman in his way of carrying out his work, which is a great representation of our organization’s values of integrity and high quality. He continuously steps up to share the weight to pull the team forward. I already have deep gratitude towards Thomas for the work he is doing to make our April Gala in Boston an incredible event. Please join me in welcoming him as an official member of our team.
A few words from Thomas:
“Hi, my name is Thomas McDonnell. I am a 26 year graduate of the University of New Hampshire, where I completed my Master's degree in Business, as well as being the captain of the Men's Basketball team. Growing up as the son of a Social Worker, my Mother always installed in me just how important it is to give back to those who have less, so during my time in school I was able to start working with several non profits. My passion started here, and translated into my career today, as I am a currently a Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley, that specializes in helping Professional Athletes handle their money safely. I also am a full time member of the non-profit Best Buddies, which works with mentally & physically challenged individuals to help them succeed in all areas of life. I couldn't be more excited to be joining the L'ecole Des Enfants team. From the minute I met Maria, I was able to understand just how important the work she (and the entire team) are doing, and her passion for the work is what drove me to want to be a part of it. As the North American Events Manager, I hope that I can bring great energy and ethusiasm to the organization, as well as helping coordinate, plan, and execute events starting with our 2018 Boston Spring Gala in just a few weeks.”
