We believe good business and responsible citizenship go hand in hand and giving back is not just a check-the-box exercise at ICR. It’s ingrained in our operating philosophy. For us, it’s also personal. Between December 2008 and December 2010, the firm lost three members of its family to cancer: Chad Jacobs and John Flanagan, both co-founders of ICR, and Dana Duffy, the wife of ICR President Don Duffy. To see these three vibrant people stricken down in the prime of their lives was a heartbreaking blow to the entire firm.
To honor their memories, we established three foundations in their names which will ensure that Chad, John and Dana will continue to have a positive impact on the lives that have followed theirs.
