  Leslie Koch

Leslie Koch is the former CEO of the Fund for Public Schools, the non-profit organization affiliated with the New York City Department of Education. Working together with Vice Chair Caroline Kennedy, Ms. Koch developed initiatives to increase public participation and private sector support for public education in New York City. Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Chancellor Joel Klein established public-private partnerships as a critical means of driving public education reform, and the Fund is the primary vehicle for advancing this effort in the country’s largest school system. A national model for public-private partnerships to serve education needs, the Fund has secured unprecedented investment from private business and foundations, raising more than $120 million for system-wide reforms and initiatives that support individual schools.

A native New Yorker, Ms. Koch (no relation to former Mayor Ed Koch) began her career in the public sector, serving in New York City government. As an executive with Microsoft, she was responsible for strategic development and marketing of several flagship products. She returned to New York City because of her desire to contribute to education reform. She graduated from Yale College with a B.A. in history and received a Masters in Public and Private Management from the Yale School of Management.
