About Joe Sibilia

As a visionary of the socially responsible business movement, Joe Sibilia is the founder of Meadowbrook Lane Capital (MBLC), described by the Wall Street Journal as a “socially responsible investment bank” specializing in turning values into valuation.

He is also CEO of CSRwire, the social responsibility newswire service that distributes and archives corporate social responsibility/sustainability news to journalists, analysts, investors, activists, academics, public relations and investor relations professionals worldwide.

Joe also founded the Gasoline Alley Foundation, a 501(c) 3 corporation that has incubated 43 small businesses since 1985 and teaches inner city and/or underprivileged persons to be successful entrepreneurs using socially responsible/sustainable business practices while revitalizing inner city neighborhoods.

Through MLBC, Joe has worked with a number of socially responsible companies and has been widely recognized for his work in attempting to take Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Ice Cream private, while creating a private stock exchange for CSR companies. MBLC successfully preserved many of its founders’ social initiatives and advanced the connection between good corporate citizenship and increased share value.

His long-range plan for CSRwire is to establish a “platform for innovative revenue sharing applications advancing the ‘Sustainability Movement’ towards a more economically just and environmentally sustainable society and away from single bottom line capitalism.”
