Meet Our New CEO

Max Finberg, our new President and CEO

We are pleased to announce that Max Finberg is joining Foods Resource Bank, soon to be known as Growing Hope Worldwide, as President and CEO on September 1, 2018.

Max has 25 years of experience working to end hunger and poverty in both the United States and around the world, most recently serving as a director of the United Nation’s World Food Program in Rome, Italy, the world’s largest humanitarian agency.

In addition, Max has held senior positions with AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America, the domestic Peace Corps), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Department of State, and the White House, where he gained a deep understanding of sustainable agricultural development and worked to inspire and encourage faith leaders and others to end hunger. He holds a master’s degree in religious studies from Howard University’s School of Divinity and a bachelor’s degree in political science and international relations from Tufts University.

Along with his wife Kate and their two children, Max is looking forward to moving back to their home in Maryland. He also is excited to get to know the FRB family and join us in our goal to reach even more people in need around the world and support them in growing lasting solutions to hunger.
