Lunch with the City's Leaders Access and insight into the powers that shape our city. Join CCPA members and friends as we get to know Philadelphia's business, civic, political and cultural leaders. Matt Bergheiser Executive Director University City District Thursday, June 28, 2012 11:45 AM to 1:30 PM
Matt Bergheiser joined UCD as Executive Director in 2009. In his previous work as Philadelphia Regional Director of the Knight Foundation, he gave away money for a living. As a result - in stark contrast to his time at UCD, everyone treated him nicely and laughed at all his jokes. He is a trustee of Community College of Philadelphia, and a member of the Mayor's Council on College and Career Success. Matt also ran downtown Trenton's business improvement district for five years, and served as Executive Vice President of The Enterprise Center, an accelerator for inner-city entrepreneurship. He believes passionately in cities and in creating opportunities for people and places to thrive.
