Anthony Thomas

Executive Vice President and Chief Financial and Investment Officer

Truth Initiative

Washington D.C.


Anthony O’Toole is the executive vice president and chief financial and investment officer at Truth Initiative. In this role, he oversees the organization’s annual operating budget and its long-term investments working hand-in-hand with the Board’s treasurer and Investment Committee to ensure that Truth Initiative has the fiscal health to make this the generation that ends tobacco use.

Prior to joining Truth Initiative, O’Toole’s skills and diligence benefited Columbia University, where he served as associate vice president for Financial Services and Systems at the Health Sciences Division. This was a far-reaching position, involving not just oversight of the division’s financial activities, but also managing the university’s affiliations with New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Harlem Hospital Center.

He was previously an audit manager with KPMG Peat Marwick, one of the nation’s acclaimed “Big Four” accounting firms.

Sound financial management and budget oversight that ensures long-term sustainability is O’Toole’s stock in trade. The effort to bring about America’s first tobacco-free generation is stronger because he practices those skills at Truth Initiative.
