In his role, Robinson will be responsible for advising on all fiscal matters, including annual and long-term planning/forecasting, accounting, budgeting, risk management, compliance and analysis. He will also oversee the IT and Engineering divisions and play a key role in ensuring that Sesame Workshop has the right tools, systems and technology in place to support a dynamic work environment and a culture that supports growth and evolution. He will help track and identify key metrics to drive the organization’s work and impact. 

Robinson will report to Steve Youngwood, chief executive officer, and will be a key strategic partner to the non-profit organization’s senior leadership, serve as an officer of the organization with the board of trustees, and will sit on Sesame Workshop’s leadership team. 

“Brett has dedicated his career to public service and social good,”

says Youngwood. “He possesses a depth and breadth of experience, having held multiple finance and administrative roles in city government, being the CFO at a large community-focused not-for-profit in the Brooklyn Public Library, and most recently at UNICEF USA, where he was not only the COO and CFO but also interim co-CEO during their transition. With over 20 years of experience operating at the intersection of strategy, technology and finance, Brett brings visionary leadership, a sharp focus on data-driven decisions and a high level of energy with a can-do mindset. We are thrilled to have him join to continue elevating Sesame Workshop’s operations and facilitate our mission of helping kids everywhere grow smarter, stronger and kinder.”
