Howard Zuckerman, ReServist:
Patterson Park Public Charter School
Following a successful career as a finance executive, ReServist Howard Zuckerman virtually transformed the Patterson Park Public Charter School, a preK-8th grade charter school in Baltimore that serves 673 students. He implemented new financial reporting and compliance processes; identified cost-savings opportunities; negotiated an investment advisory agreement; streamlined quarterly reporting, and hired and trained an accountant/bookkeeper. The school, once struggling, is now thriving. “We were amazingly lucky,” said Ed Rutkowski, the school’s executive director. “Howard was the perfect person for us at exactly the right time.”
“My motivation is to work with nonprofits, meet people in new walks of life and continue to learn,” Howard said.
