Our Story

Founded by siblings Dan and Eileen O'Donnell in 1996, Odonnell Company is a strategic consulting and marketing agency. Several years later, Odonnell made the decision to focus exclusively on partnering with organizations that work to save and improve people's lives. Today, as a social sector consultancy, Odonnell works alongside government agencies and nonprofits to help solve some of the most challenging issues facing the world.

Our mission icon

Human Beings and Decision Making

At its core Odonnell's work is about human beings and their potential for change. We all have our own identity, experience, and dreams, but we also have common ground in shared needs. The Odonnell approach considers what it is to be human: our challenges, our needs, our behaviors, and our decisions. The science of our minds is fascinating stuff—how we make millions of decisions each day and the micro-actions that frame our choices and define our path in life.
