Since joining CCS in 2011, Carl has been privileged to have provided counsel to numerous clients in the faith-based, health, education, and social service sectors. His areas of expertise include project management, capital campaigns, feasibility and planning studies, organizational development, data analysis, volunteer management, major gifts, and annual fundraising.

Carl is a strong believer in the power of philanthropy and the opportunities it can provide. “I am blessed to have been the beneficiary of the generosity of others through scholarships. I have experienced firsthand the impact philanthropy can provide.”

Growing out of these experiences, Carl appreciates the importance of being socially just and giving back to those less fortunate. Therefore, he chose to pursue a career in helping nonprofits provide opportunities to those who need it most.

Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Carl resides in Rockville Centre, on Long Island, with his wife, Caroline, and daughter, Mairéad. He is a proud graduate of Belvedere College S.J. in Dublin and The University of Scranton in Scranton, Pennsylvania.
