Chief Executive Officer, New Schools for Chicago

Chicago, Illinois

Daniel Anello is the chief executive officer of New Schools for Chicago, a nonprofit dedicated to improving public education on Chicago’s South and West Sides. He previously served as the chief of strategy and external relations for Chicago International Charter School. There, he was responsible for holistic marketing strategy, long-term strategic planning, and identifying organizational growth opportunities for the CICS network. In 2014, Anello played an important role in securing equitable funding for charter school students citywide, working side-by-side with the Chicago Public Schoools budget office on the implementation of student-based funding that remained agnostic to school-type. Anello came to CICS through the Broad Residency, a prestigious professional-development program in which candidates are trained and placed in the educational field. Prior to joining CICS and The Broad Residency, Daniel was an associate brand manager for Unilever and an associate director of marketing for a medical start-up company.
