Steven Ehlinger
Chief Financial Officer

Steven brings 25 years of impact entrepreneurial and finance experience to Givewith, having spent the past 15 years as a financial consultant, fractional-Chief Financial Officer, and financial advisor to numerous impact businesses, incubators, accelerators, and funds. Steven was the founding Chief Financial Officer at EcoMedia and supported the company through the acquisition by CBS in 2010.

Throughout his career, numerous companies have achieved successful funding and exit events due in large part to Steven’s approach to organizational structure and financial modeling. He has been the lead in many fundraising negotiations as a Chief Financial Officer, fractional-Chief Financial Officer, or financial consultant. Steven has built detailed financial models for over 25 companies of varying sizes, has been the Chief Financial Officer or Chief Operations Officer of 10 organizations, and continues to be an ongoing advisor to many of the companies he has worked with.

As an entrepreneur, Steven was founding partner and Chief Financial Officer of EcoMedia (acquired by CBS Corporation), where he helped structure $29 million in startup and early-stage capital and created an evolutionary business model to fund large-scale environmental initiatives at no cost to the taxpayer—which has since generated over $600 million for cleaning the oceans. He served as Managing Director for the asset management firms of Adams O’Connell, Inc. and for the Family Office of Morgan Adams, Inc. in which he managed over $600 million, including a Venture Capital Group, for over 200 living heirs of John Quincy Adams. Steven founded Integrated Management Consulting (IMC) in 2007 to serve and counsel key executives in business mastery principles. He has since created the initial financial model for Thrive Market, who recently closed $111 million on a Series B round of financing on a $520 million valuation.
