Title: Chief Executive Officer
Company: United Cerebral Palsy of NYC
Location: New York, NY
New York, NY, August 23, 2016, Edward R. Matthews, Chief Executive Officer of United Cerebral Palsy of NYC, has been recognized by Elite American Executives, for dedication, achievement and leadership in nonprofit management.
As the three-term CEO of United Cerebral Palsy of NYC, Mr. Edwards’ days consist of supervising programs and services for more than 1500 people. In addition, he balances the difficult task of managing 3000 staff members. His position requires him to adhere to statewide responsibilities and work with managed care plans. He dedicates his time to this organization so that children and adults with cerebral palsy and other disabilities are advocated for and seen in their government and communities with access to services and technology.
Becoming the CEO of a nonprofit organization may not have been on Mr. Edwards’ mind when he was attending college. However, with a master’s degree in psychology from St. John’s University, and a decade spent with the New York State Government to facilitate state institutions for people with developmental disabilities, he possesses the skills needed to handle a large responsibility. In addition to handling the management of UCP, Mr. Edwards was appointed to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Medicaid Redesign Team in 2011. Looking toward the future, Mr. Edwards intends to leave the organization in good hands and enjoy a well-deserved retirement.
