Founder & CEO
Michael Cwidak-Kusbach founded Amplify Civic Advisors with the belief that Pay for Success projects could be done more effectively with less complexity and fewer risks for state and local government.
Having spent over 5 years building Pay for Success projects, he has overseen numerous feasibility studies and project constructions, and has served as the Intermediary project manager on a launched project.
Before working in the Pay for Success field, Michael worked on streamlining and reducing local government cost for Mayor Pete Buttigieg in South Bend, IN, as the Director of the Office of Scheduling and Advance for Mayor Adrian Fenty in DC, and has worked on presidential, senatorial, state, and local political campaigns.
Michael holds a Master of Public Administration from the School of Public and Environmental Affairs at Indiana University and a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Princeton University.
