BEN SEIGEL

BALTIMORE OPPORTUNITY ZONES COORDINATOR

 

 Benjamin Seigel was recently named as the Baltimore Development Corporation’s Baltimore Opportunity Zones Coordinator (BOZ Coordinator).  Mr Seigel is responsible for positioning the City to take full advantage of the new incentives to increase investment in Baltimore’s Opportunity Zones.  

 

The BOZ Coordinator position is funded by a grant from the Abell Foundation. Seigel will primarily serve in an “information clearinghouse” role with the following key responsibilities: 

 

Provide information about and promote projects in Baltimore’s Opportunity Zones, identify and inventory Opportunity Fund investors, as well as other potential investments and leveraged funds. Help match projects with investors and track investments; draft a comprehensive plan for the Baltimore City Opportunity Zones and an Investment Prospectus.

 

Previously, Seigel joined Johns Hopkins University as the inaugural executive director of the 21st Century Cities Initiative, an applied research and partnership building program that brings together interdisciplinary researchers with city partners to strengthen policies focused on improving distressed communities. Prior to Hopkins, he served in the Obama administration as a senior advisor in the office of Labor Secretary Tom Perez and as the director of the Labor Department’s Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships.  Seigel also served as the initial team lead for the Obama Administration’s Baltimore Federal Task Force, formed in May 2015, where he guided senior-level staff across more than a dozen agencies and the White House, to bring enhanced federal and technical assistance to Baltimore.
