Malcolm Walter’s career spans over 40 years and includes serving as the COO or CFO for several privately-held and public companies.  In 2016, Malcolm retired after a 17-year career as COO of Bentley Systems, a global software company whose mission is sustaining infrastructure.  Malcolm is a CPA and received his undergraduate degree from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Malcolm’s career provided an opportunity to travel to over 60 countries and to work with clients and colleagues worldwide.  More recently, his travels have been to the least developed parts of the world to observe the unique challenges faced in these communities battling extreme poverty. Here he has witnessed the transformative success of empowering people, particularly women, to lift themselves out of poverty.

Malcolm currently serves on the board of Water for People, an NGO whose mission is to promote the development of high-quality drinking water and sanitation services, accessible to all, and sustained by strong communities, businesses, and governments.  He also serves on the board of the Presidio Graduate School whose mission is to educate and inspire a new generation of skilled, visionary and enterprising leaders to transform business and public policy and create a more just, prosperous and sustainable world.

More recently, Malcolm completed Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership training. Malcolm is a dynamic public speaker on the issues of global warming and climate change and filled with optimism when it comes to our world’s response to these challenges.

Malcolm is a graduate of ANC (Class of ’71) and an alumnus of Bryn Athyn College. His five children, all raised in Bryn Athyn, also graduated from ANC.
