Gilad Saul Lang
Vice President - The Madison Collection, United States, Haiti, Dominican Republic
Peace Corps service influenced Gilad early in his career, compelling him toward pioneering social impact programs using his skills as a global marketing professional, brand designer, and behavior-change specialist. The results of his decade-long collaboration with organizations such as Population Services International, Project Concern International, and The Safety Lab were successfully implemented across Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and Southern Africa — helping with youth empowerment, reducing prevalence of infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, and supporting prevention of violence against women and children. Now co-leading the family business, The Madison Collection — purveyor of eco-luxury terry products for the hospitality and spa industry, Gilad is influencing social impact through the company’s new partnership with Wine to Water, to support clean drinking-water efforts in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
