The national organization dedicated solely to the orchestral experience, the League of American Orchestras is comprised of more than 1,800 orchestra, institutional, and individual members.
Andrew Clark has spent his finance career in service of non-profits, providing crucial support to public advocacy organizations focused on financial literacy, urban planning, community engagement, and social work. Believing in the importance of strong financial support to a successful non-profit, Andrew has taken key roles in growing and changing organizations to help in transforming mission and service delivery.

He joins the League with over ten years of experience implementing strategic initiatives, building sustainable financial policies, and providing key business insights. Andrew was previously Director of Finance at Philadelphia's Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence, where he served at a moment of crucial pivot for the agency's strategic plan and organizational structure. Prior to that role, Andrew served for years as Finance Manager at Philadelphia's Fairmount Park Conservancy, a public space and natural lands advocacy organization, where he oversaw the financial management of large-scale capital campaigns and community engagement initiatives during exponential growth and restructuring.

Andrew has also been engaged for years with LGBTQ+ community leadership, recently joining the Philadelphia Mayor's Commission on LGBT Affairs and the Board of Directors for the Independence Business Alliance. Here he engages directly with the needs and voices of the community and acts as liaison to the Mayor's office and represents commercial opportunity initiatives.

Andrew studied Accounting at University of Delaware, where through student government he first acquired his passion for community building and service. He is thrilled to be joining an organization that advocates for innovation and access to live music on a national level, and looks forward to joining the League's New York City office in its mission to champion America's orchestras.
