Neil Albert's Bio

Neil Albert has over 15 years of public sector executive management experience and currently serves as President and CEO of EdBuild, a District of Columbia nonprofit organization that partners with public schools to increase the number of high performing schools. EdBuild provides facility development services that rapidly modernize crumbling, wader-utilized school facilities and provides intensive education support to boost the performance of schools in those buildings.

Prior to EdBuild, Neil served as Deputy Mayor for Children, Youth and Families and Director of Parks and Recreation for Washington, DC. As Deputy Mayor; Neil provided oversight and management for eight city agencies and led the development of "Homeless No More", the Mayor's ten year plan to end homelessness, led the search for the City's first Director of the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services, and developed the Mayor's first Youth Development Strategy. As Director of Parks and Recreation, Neil led the most aggressive parks and recreation rehabilitation program in the city's home rule history; building and renovating 17 recreation centers, 7 parks, 9 swimming pools, 38 playgrounds, 24 ball fields, 40 tennis and basket ball courts while leveraging both public and private expertise to support his effort. The Washington Post writing about his accomplishments said Neil took "the agency ... to a place where it regularly designs and builds impressive facilities that residents love.' The Common Denominator acknowledged Neil's accomplishments with the headline, "City's parks director gets high marks for fixing problems". He strengthened youth and social service programs and achieved top national certification for all 21 child care centers under his control. Neil also served as the Mayor's representative to the DC Sports and Entertainment Commission and the Mayor's Blue Ribbon Panel on Sports Commissions.

Before his public service in Washington, D.C., Neil served as the Director of Nonprofit Assistance Programs for the Fund of the City of New York and as the Director of Contract Agency Finance for the New York City Department of Youth Services. There he was responsible fox managing the financial, accounting and technical assistance functions required for the disbursement of more than $64 million in city and state funds.

Neil holds a MBA from the New York Institute of Technology and serves as a board member for a number of organizations including the Safe Shores, Cornerstone, DC Children and Youth Investment Trust, ARC of DC, and the United Planning Organization.
