Jenny Goldstock Wright

Jenny is the CEO and Co-Principal of Driving Force Group. Jenny began her career in law enforcement where the link between arrests and lack of opportunity in underserved communities led her to return to school for a graduate degree in education and social policy. From there she spent years in the nonprofit space, both creating and running local, direct service organizations. In 2001, Jenny saw an opportunity to make a further impact by working with donors to direct their charitable dollars in ways that could make the most significant impact on individuals and communities. Driving Force Group, Inc was born from those efforts. Jenny received her undergraduate degree from Skidmore College and her Masters degree from Harvard University.

Geoffrey Walker

Geoff Walker is the CMO and Co- Principal of Driving Force Group. Geoff began his career with Merrill Lynch in the financial services industry and saw his clients struggle with how and where to earmark charitable dollars. He noticed a similar pattern when working in the fashion world in speaking to major department store retailers and brands about how to leverage their resources to make a philanthropic impact. After spending several years helping clients raise and disperse funds philanthropically and later through formal event production, Walker joined forces with Jenny Goldstock Wright to ensure clients were receiving not only sound philanthropic advise, but also gaining the knowledge of how to marry their charitable work with their work life and personal brand. Geoff received his Bachelors degree from Siena College where he was All-Conference MAAC selection, 4 year starter, 2-Captain, 3-Time MVP, of the Division 1 Basketball Program.
