Brian A. Zive

Consultant and Senior Data Scientist, Philanthropy Insights & Analytics

Brian joined Marts&Lundy as a consultant on the Analytical Solutions team in June 2016.  His last name rhymes with “give”, which is appropriate since he has been working in the fundraising industry since 1999. Throughout his career, Brian has combined his technical ability with his industry knowledge to bring fundraising data to life.

Prior to joining Marts&Lundy, Brian spent more than three years as the lead data analyst for Resource Development at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he provided analyses that helped MIT prepare for the launch of their Campaign for a Better World in 2016.

From 2006 to 2012, Brian became an accomplished analyst and report writer in the Development Office at Massachusetts General Hospital during their Campaign for the Third Century of MGH Medicine. While at Mass General, he established a data analytics team and introduced predictive and descriptive analytics projects that guided strategy for campaign accounting, prospect identification and portfolio management. Brian was an active participant in the creation of policies and best practices for gift-officer metrics. He was also an integral member of the Raiser’s Edge systems conversion team.
