Associate Director


Erin Thornton is an Associate Director at Social Finance.

Prior to joining our team, Erin was a Senior Research Associate on the Emerging Markets team at Eaton Vance Management/Morgan Stanley Investment Management. In that role, she conducted macroeconomic analysis and public policy research on countries in Central & Eastern Europe and North Africa in support of investment decisions. Previously, she interned in the office of New Jersey Assemblyman John F. McKeon, in the office of former Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh, at Liberty Square Group, and at Eaton Vance Management.

Erin graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in Political Science/International Affairs with Honors and a Minor in Economics from Northeastern University.

I love working with public sector partners to innovate and pilot new approaches to workforce development, education, and economic mobility.
