Executive Advisors

Current Executive Advisors

MPC’s Executive Advisors is a prestigious executive-level membership group focused on connecting corporate and civic leaders to the issues that matter most to the Chicago region. The Executive Advisors’ breadth of expertise, entrepreneurialism, and stewardship of resources empower dynamic thought leadership and action on issues that need the most attention in our region. These issues range from the global economic climate to local transportation policy, from the region’s shortage of affordable housing to the power of visionary development, from reducing the barriers to equitable development near transit to ensuring safe drinking water systems for all. In short, MPC’s Executive Advisors drive civic change that’s fair for everyone.
