Matthew Randazzo

Chief Executive Officer

As Chief Executive Officer, Matthew leads the organization’s efforts to improve teacher effectiveness and student achievement in communities across the country.
“Knowing that our programs have an immediate and lasting impact on student achievement – and on the future of the 21st Century workforce – drives me every day. And what excites me every day is finding ways to vastly expand that reach 10- or 20-fold in the next 10 years.”
Matthew joined NMSI in September 2014 as chief growth and strategy officer, responsible for planning and implementing NMSI’s external engagement strategies. Prior to joining NMSI, Matthew served as founding president and CEO of Choose to Succeed and as chief growth officer for IDEA Public Schools. Matthew recently was named to the 10th class of the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Children and Family Fellows – a select group of leaders from the public, nonprofit and academic sectors dedicated to leading measurable improvements for children and families.
Matthew earned his Bachelor of Arts in political science and Latin American studies from Albion College in Michigan and his Master of Public Affairs from The University of Texas at Austin.
