Mike Brady, CEO and President

Mike Brady, Greyston Bakery

Mike Brady, President and CEO of Greyston, is building on the organization’s 35 year heritage as a leading social enterprise. Greyston is best known for its practice of Open Hiring™ which embraces an individual’s potential by providing employment opportunities regardless of background or work history while bringing together the support and services needed to succeed in the workplace and to thrive in the community.

Mike led Greyston Bakery as President for four years, driving strategic business development with long-standing partner Ben & Jerry’s and with new partners such as Whole Foods Market. During this time, the Bakery realized nearly 100% revenue growth and became New York State’s first registered Benefit Corporation. Mike recently took responsibility for all Greyston’s programs and businesses including Workforce Development, Community Gardens, Housing, Health Services and Early Learning Center. Mike’s passion lie in the integration of business and social good, particularly through the scaling of Open Hiring™, which has the potential to support millions of individuals facing barriers to employment.

Mike is a regularly featured speaker and mentor on social entrepreneurism and mindfulness in business, having presented at Ted @ Unilever, CGI America, the Ashoka Future Forum, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Wharton and Brown.
