Megan served as President of the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City for eight years, working closely with former Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and First Deputy Mayor Patti Harris. Mayor Bloomberg made public-private partnerships a cornerstone of New York City’s approach to innovation and creating new solutions to urban problems. The Mayor’s Fund raised nearly $400 million under his leadership to meet the greatest needs of residents and identify best practices for public service delivery. It partnered with 45 City Agencies and Offices to support over 100 different programs in areas including mental health, youth workforce development, domestic violence, immigration and citizenship, and financial empowerment. Specific initiatives included the Social Innovation Fund, a federal partnership to pilot Mayor Bloomberg’s most promising anti-poverty programs in New York City and seven other U.S. cities; Family Justice Centers, which served more than 93,000 victims of domestic violence and 19,000 children; and citywide Hurricane Sandy disaster relief efforts. The Fund’s work and collaborations helped to shape national policy and are now informing the efforts of cities across the globe. Megan also served as Deputy Press Secretary to Mayor Bloomberg and as Director of Communications & Policy for the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation. In 2005 Megan managed all communications and coordinated the efforts of the City’s agencies for “The Gates,” a temporary art display in Central Park by world-renowned artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude, which attracted over 4 million visitors from around the world. Megan currently works with Bloomberg Associates to help cities foster and structure public-private partnerships serving their residents.
