About Our Foundation
After years of giving back to the community, Cindy and Robert Friezo launched the Foundation to unify their family and corporate charitable work in one place, maximizing the impact and reach of its efforts. We collaborate with museums, music academies, schools, communities, individual artists and others to kickstart projects fitting our mission goals.
Cindy Friezo is a passionate advocate of the arts community and giving back to those in need. From her early years, she has worked with various organizations and youth councils to improve struggling areas throughout Boston. She then progressed to a role at a foundation in her native Dominican Republic to mentor and empower women in impoverished communities to learn sustainable ways of working and bettering their families.
As Chief People Officer at Verity, Cindy oversees Human Resources which includes recruitment, training, compensation, retaining top engineering talent, and strategic business operations.

Robert Friezo has established himself as a technology thought leader, cultivating a lifelong passion that manifests itself in every endeavor. Since founding the Verity group of companies in 2005, he has grown it into an international enterprise encompassing a broad spectrum of services.
Born at the confluence of personal computers and the Internet, he started consulting at an early age for numerous clients, including a pre-IPO dotcom firm. This ignited his entrepreneurial spirit to develop and launch some of the first cloud-based solutions and a social media brand before the phrases were even coined.

He earned some of the most coveted and prestigious technical certifications from a young age, continually pursuing them as the industry evolves. He was inducted into the Cisco Small Business Executive Board and numerous new product beta teams to harness his problem-solving abilities and forward-thinking.
Garnering a reputation for exacting detail and performance, he served as a key player in the successful launch of landmark projects such as Perez Art Museum, Norton Museum of Art, New World Symphony, and Oxbridge Academy. Verity also built and operates a global network infrastructure from the ground-up, hosting tens of thousands of users around the globe.
