David Hobbet serves as the Executive Director of The Veritas Forum. Since 2013, under David’s leadership Veritas has grown its flagship Forum programming to over 135 leading universities in 11 countries. Veritas has also expanded into significant new program areas, all focused on a central mission to present Jesus Christ as plausible to questions asked by students, faculty and the university community, and to foster the steadfast inquiry of those questions through thoughtful discourse.
Most recently Veritas acquired The Augustine Collective, a network of student-led Christian literary journals at twenty-two top universities. Veritas also runs summer Academies for matriculating college freshmen and the Riff Fellows program to equip Christian academics with the communication skills and peer support to become recognized and compelling cultural commentators.
Previously, David worked at McKinsey and Company, serving large private and public sector clients on strategy development and organizational effectiveness. He also worked in international economic development with Millennium Promise and in private equity with KKR Capstone. David received an MBA with honors from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Duke University. He and his wife Kimberly and their daughter Lucy live in Cambridge, MA.
