Peter F. Drucker was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1909. In addition to teaching, Mr. Drucker currently acts as a consultant, specializing in strategy and policy for both businesses and nonprofits. From 1950-1971, Drucker was Professor of Management at the Graduate School of Business at New York University. A prolific writer, he has published 30 books, which have been translated into more than 20 languages. He was editorial columnist for The Wall Street Journal from 1975 to 1995, and still frequently contributes to numerous magazines. The Havard Business Review calls him, "Father of modern management, social commentator, and preeminent business philosopher."

Since its founding in 1990, the Drucker Foundation's special expertise and role have been to serve as a broker of intellectual capital, bringing together the finest thought leaders, consultants, authors, and social philosophers in the world with the leaders of social sector voluntary organizations. By providing intellectual resources to leaders in the business, government, and social sectors, and by fostering partnerships across these sectors, the Drucker Foundation works to strengthen the social sectors of America and of nations around the globe.
