Outrider Bomb Blast Screen On Madison

Robert Elder is a journalist, author, digital strategist and — since May — president and CEO of the Outrider Foundation, a nonprofit media group with offices on East Washington Avenue that was launched in 1999 by Frank Burgess, who 25 years earlier founded Madison Investment Advisors.

Outrider focuses on multimedia projects largely in the areas of nuclear risk and climate change. “We envision,” its website notes, “a world where people live without fear of nuclear annihilation or climate-induced catastrophe.” Elder was recruited for the position from the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, where he was chief digital officer.
