My name is Frank Giustra. I am a father, philanthropist and CEO of the Fiore Group, a private firm managing a broad portfolio of private equity investments and companies, focussing on natural resources, entertainment, art, food and lifestyle. Because of my love of food, I founded Domenica Fiore, an award winning olive oil company named after my mother, and Modern Farmer Media. I was the founder of Lionsgate Entertainment, and now I’m a major shareholder ofThunderbird Entertainment Group.
I like to think I bring my entrepreneurial approach to philanthropy to catalyze new ideas and innovations that can be scaled and shared. My family foundation, the Giustra Foundation, is actively involved in the global refugee crisis by providing humanitarian aid, along with being the founding partner in the Global Refugee Sponsorship Initiative.
In 2020, I become co-chair of the International Crisis Group, a widely recognized independent, non-partisan source of analysis and advice to policymakers on the prevention and resolution of deadly conflict. I have been a trustee and supporter of the Crisis Group since 2005.
In 2007, I co-founded along with President Bill Clinton, the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership, which recently transitioned into a new independent entity named Acceso. Acceso is a social business builder that brings entrepreneurial solutions to global poverty. Acceso invests start-up capital, built from scratch, and manages agribusinesses in Colombia, El Salvador, and Haiti.
