Chairman and CEO
Frank McCourt is a civic entrepreneur and the Chairman and CEO of McCourt Global Inc., a company focused on impact investing in real estate, finance, sports, philanthropy, media, and technology. McCourt owns the French football club Olympique de Marseille and formerly owned the Los Angeles Dodgers. With family roots in the construction business dating back to 1893, McCourt has built upon this legacy with initiatives ranging from the development of Boston’s Seaport to large, mixed-use projects in New York City, Miami, London, and elsewhere.
McCourt is a passionate supporter of multiple academic, civic, and cultural institutions and initiatives. He has served on Georgetown University’s Board of Directors for many years and, in 2013, made a $100 million founding investment to create Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy, which he expanded on in 2021 with a $100 million investment to catalyze an inclusive pipeline of public policy leaders. In 2020, McCourt launched and became Chairman and CEO of Unfinished, an initiative that aims to strengthen civic life in the digital age by redirecting technology, especially social media, to fuel collaboration over division; renewing and strengthening civic institutions to accelerate inclusive problem-solving; and growing a fairer economy. As part of his long-standing commitment to harnessing the power of technology to advance the public good, McCourt launched Project Liberty, an initiative to transform the internet through a new, open, and equitable technology infrastructure – known as DSNP – and rebuild social media in a way that enables users to own and control their personal data and access new opportunities to contribute to and benefit from the digital economy.
