Chad maintains a deep, abiding interest in public education. Prior to joining LDC, he served as a vice president at New Visions for Public Schools, where he had responsibility for overseeing all instructional and operational supports including Common Core and teacher effectiveness implementations for 75 New York City public schools. Chad also served as a vice president at The Princeton Review, and as general counsel and executive director to the New York City Department of Education for many years. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Wharton School and a JD from the University of Pennsylvania, and completed coursework toward a doctorate in education leadership at New York University. When not working tirelessly to support educators, Chad is an avid bicyclist who leaves a lean, green footprint as he fearlessly navigates New York City streets.
