Jackson W. Robinson
Jack founded Winslow Management Company in 1983, with the mission of providing green investment services to individual and institutional clients.

Under Jack's leadership, Winslow developed a unique growth investment style, investing exclusively in companies with clean operations and companies offering green solutions in areas such as resource efficiency or renewable energy. Winslow was acquired by Brown Advisory in 2009.
