Art Stewart is the Managing Partner at Strategic Impact Partners, with whom Gnarus has partnered in our ESG practice.
Art’s perspective has been acquired from over twenty-five years of experience living and working in the vibrant innovation community of Boston’s Route 128 tech beltway as well as in Washington, DC. Together with his pioneering clients, who were eager to re-order many of the old paradigms, they navigated through the swings of dramatic change for the U.S. tech world and the global business landscape.
Many of Art’s clients have been central players in the business and technology advancements seen across the spectrum of industry from medical devices, software, hospitals, managed care and professional services to manufacturing, publishing, clean-green, associations, US Federal agencies, and global faith-based institutions.
Having been involved in sustainability and “CSR” during the seeding years of what is now ESG, Art has collaborated on research and thought leadership as well as processes and trainings. He was invited to serve as an Honorary Research Fellow at the Hoffman Center for Business Ethics at Bentley University; and developed and taught the first course in CSR at Emerson College.
Art advises senior executives and organization leaders, supports processes like M&A, helps guide teams during unanticipated upheaval, and complements the work of corporate counsel in legal or reputational challenges.
He launched and headed the Corporate Development function for a Boston-based global operations management consulting firm, leading advancement of a next generation sustainability-centric approach to supply chain operations and transformation. His early career includes work for COMDEX and Mullen/HP Medical Products Group.
Art holds an M.P.M. in Public Policy Management from Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy and a B.Sc. in Mass Communication from Emerson College.
