Stuart Aitken, CEO of dunnhumbyUSA, leads by example to encourage employee volunteerism and donation efforts toward local nonprofit organizations.

He and many within the company, along with their families, are active in its “Helping Hands” program. Each year, employees vote to select the charities that dunnhumbyUSA will support. Then the company assigns a team to manage the relationship with each organization to determine its needs, establish goals and organize events.

One organization chosen year after year is the American Cancer Society. More than 20 dunnhumbyUSA employees, along with friends and families, participated in ACS’s Relay for Life this past year. Between dunnhumbyUSA’s sponsorship of the event and employee donations, the company team raised nearly $10,000 of the $32,000 raised by the event in total, making them the top fundraising team for the event.

Company employees also voted to support Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Oyler Elementary School, Freestore Foodbank, Ronald McDonald House Drop Inn Center and Women Helping Women over the past year.

Since joining dunnhumbyUSA in 2009 and relocating to the Cincinnati area, Aitken has been as active in the community as he has within the company — serving as a board member for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, a director on the board of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, a board member for the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation, the former president for the European-American Chamber of Commerce, and a former judge for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards.
