Josh Sorin leads the Government Innovation Program at the Centre for Public Impact (CPI), a global nonprofit founded by the Boston Consulting Group. The Government Innovation team works to incubate new ideas about how innovation can be used to create more effective and legitimate governments, and then puts those ideas into action by collaborating with local governments and their partners to design, prototype, and implement solutions to their most pressing problems. Under Josh’s leadership, the Government Innovation team has worked with over 80 local governments across the country and has published multiple reports on public-sector innovation. Prior to joining CPI, Josh managed projects in KPMG’s Public Sector Advisory practice, where he supported state and local governments in transforming programs, policies, and processes to improve outcomes for underserved communities. He also served as a Fellow with the Civic Consulting Alliance, a nonprofit that leverages pro bono, private-sector resources to solve public-sector problems in the City of Chicago and Cook County. Josh currently lives in Washington, DC where he is a member of the DC Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2F’s Public Safety & Transportation committee. He holds a B.S. degree in Finance from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.
