He is a firm believer in not just developing a strategy or solution but also guiding clients through the full implementation phase to ensure enduring, holistic success.

Logan started his career working for Prudential Financial. He soon realized his true passion resided in the intersection of business and social impact and went on to work for True North. It was there that he successfully launched his first social venture, which continues to provide significant revenue and programmatic support for the organization today. Also during his time at True North, Logan served as the Interim Executive Director, helping bridge the gap over the course of a leadership transition.

From True North, Logan led the Dalton Foundation, a multimillion-dollar organization focused on women and children, healthcare and reentry.

Logan went on to lead the social enterprise division of Towards Employment, Inc., a 40-year-old workforce development agency. In this position, Logan developed and co-founded Bloom Artisan Bakery & Café, a for-profit social venture with two locations in the heart of Downtown Cleveland, and a robust catering and wholesale division. Bloom quickly became a true Cleveland success with multiple locations, thousands of customers and a recognizable brand within the social enterprise sector.
