NewCities Opens Search for New Executive Director

Montréal, Canada – July 12, 2017.

Following the NewCities Foundation’s successful 2017 Summit in Incheon Songdo, its Chairman John Rossant announced that Executive Director Maxwell Anderson will be returning to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees in August 2017.

“Having conceived and planned our 2014 edition of the Summit in Dallas, Texas, Max stepped into the Foundation’s leadership the following year, and ably stewarded the move of our headquarters from Paris to Montréal,” Rossant stated. “As our Executive Director, he reorganized our staff, conceived and oversaw our embrace of twelve impact areas, relaunched our brand, and expanded our fundraising activities.”

Anderson stated: “I greatly appreciate the opportunity given to me by our Chairman John Rossant to guide a highly talented staff. Since first joining the Board of Trustees in 2014, I have been proud to be associated with our compelling mission to make cities more inclusive, connected, healthy and vibrant.”

Since June 2016, Anderson has served concurrently as president of the Souls Grown Deep Foundation, which he is now making his primary professional focus.
