CEO of the Freedom Fund
Nick Grono is the inaugural CEO of the Freedom Fund. The Fund is an ambitious seven-year effort to raise and deploy $100 million to combat modern slavery. It was launched by President Bill Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative in September 2013, who declared, “This is a huge deal and we should all support this.”
Previously, Nick was the CEO of the Walk Free Foundation, a leading international actor in the fight against modern slavery. During his tenure, Walk Free built a global movement with over 5 million supporters, and launched the first ever Global Slavery Index.
Before Walk Free, Nick was the Deputy President and Chief Operating Officer of the International Crisis Group, the world’s leading conflict prevention NGO.
Nick is a lawyer by background and worked as Chief of Staff to the Australian Attorney-General from 1999-2001.
