Chief Executive Officer

Founded in 1996, the Massachusetts Institute for a New Commonwealth, or MassINC, is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide the people of Massachusetts with the information they need to participate fully in our democracy. The organization achieves impact through nonpartisan research from our Policy Center and polling group, independent reporting of politics, ideas, and civic life from CommonWealth magazine, and inclusive civic engagement.

In 2007 MassINC’s Policy Center began a new focus on the Commonwealth’s small- and mid-sized urban communities with a high potential for revitalization and branded them Gateway Cities.
