Archer+Rosenthal is a consulting firm established by Clifford Rosenthal in the spring of 2014.
Cliff, the principal and managing director, has more than four decades of experience in the nonprofit, cooperative, and public sectors. For more than 30 years, he was CEO of the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions (now: Inclusiv), moving on in 2012 to set up the Office of Financial Empowerment of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in Washington. His career has focused on developing practical approaches and effective policies to empower low-income, minority, and other economically vulnerable people.
The Archer in Archer+Rosenthal is Elayne, our senior editorial advisor, and language sovereign. Elayne has worked in higher education, women’s health, and nonprofit research organizations.
We are proudly a multi-generational nonprofit family: our daughter, Dana Archer-Rosenthal, has worked in environmental, grantmaking, and community development financial organizations. She has managed programs for the Robin Hood Foundation and later, the Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF), working specifically on its social impact bond “Pay for Success” program.
And in a not-so-radical departure from the family business, our son, Carlo Cerruti, D.Ed., utilizes his degree in Mind and Brain studies from Harvard in his teaching career in California.
We are based in Brooklyn, New York — and have been, since long before it became the center of the hipster universe (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
