Background:
Kathryn Wylde is President and CEO of the nonprofit Partnership for New York City, which represents the city’s business leadership and its largest private sector employers. Its mission is to work with government, labor, and the civic sector to build a stronger New York, with a focus on education, infrastructure, and the economy.
 
Prior to taking over the Partnership presidency in 2001, Ms. Wylde was the founding CEO of the Partnership’s housing and investment fund affiliates. From 1982 to 2000, she was responsible for developing and managing affordable housing and economic development programs that contributed to the renaissance of blighted urban neighborhoods across the five boroughs. With the investment fund, she developed a network of business leaders and investors that nurtured the growth of the city’s “innovation economy,” creating thousands of jobs and promoting entrepreneurial business initiatives and social enterprise—applying commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being.
 
An internationally recognized expert on urban policy, Ms. Wylde has been awarded honorary degrees from Fordham University and St. Francis College, and serves on the boards of many nonprofit institutions, including the NYU Lutheran Medical Center, NYC Economic Development Corporation, The Fund for Public Schools, Manhattan Institute, the Governor’s NYC Regional Economic Development Council and the Governor’s Business Regulation Council.
