Co-founder, Rock Art Love foundation
Nichole Rhodes began her career as a broadcast journalist in Detroit and later moved to Abu Dhabi & Dubai where she initiated her international relations advisory and eventually launched her company Rhodes Global Group in 2008. Advising governments, multi-nationals, and NGOs from Indonesia to China and Korea through the challenges of co-country collaborations in technology, marketing infrastructure bonds in the MENA region, and expanding business internationally, her call to philanthropy in early 2011 was prompted by a near death experience. To date, Nichole has raised millions of dollars for New York City foster children, children and families living with HIV/AIDS in Africa and India, and in late 2011 she came together with her business partner and best friend Rich Stromback to launch the Rock Art Love Foundation. Rock Art Love first cause is the Homeless World Cup who’s 2012 tournament was hosted in Mexico City and hosted by Carlos Slim and the Telmex Foundation.
