Ned Breslin

CEO, Tennyson Center for Children

Skoll Awardee


Ned is a proud 2011 Skoll Award recipient who has been focused on next generation monitoring and evaluation linked to systems change work for close to 3 decades. Ned's work in the water and sanitation sector coalesced around a movement originally entitled "Everyone Forever", which forced sector role players to operate at scale, track results over time and rewired the way local governments and national Ministries of Finance allocated, tracked and ultimately financed WASH. Ned pivoted to a whole new sector to see if the systems transforming principles that underpin his work in water and sanitation could be applied elsewhere. He is now CEO of the Tennyson Center for Children, attacking the way $490m is allocated for child welfare in Colorado. Ned's personal journey mirrors that of the life-stories of the children experiencing trauma from abuse and neglect that he sees and supports at Tennyson.
