Founding president and CEO of the nonprofit, nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service, Max Stier has overseen the creation and growth of a network connecting more than 1,000 colleges and universities with 80 federal agencies; a center focusing on the presidential transition; an awards program that recognizes exceptional civil servants for their extraordinary accomplishments; annual rankings that examine employee engagement; numerous leadership development programs; and more.
Prior to the Partnership, Max worked within all three branches of the federal government. While in the executive branch, Max realized just how much influence great leaders have on improving their organizations. While at Justice, he started a paralegal program modeled after the private sector and watched as an influx of talented young graduates energized and transformed the agency’s culture. His HUD experience underscored that skilled leaders also have a potent role in making a difference for the public.
