Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics Boston City Hall
Chris Osgood co-founded and co-chairs the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, which is the City of Boston’s innovation incubator. The Office supports civic entrepreneurs – both inside and outside of City Hall – who have original ideas for how to improve Boston through collaborations between the public and the public sector. Before joining the City of Boston in 2006, Chris earned his MBA from Harvard. Prior to that, he served for 5 years in the New York City Parks & Recreation Department as its Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor. Throughout his decade of experience in local government, Chris has focused on designing and implementing operations and policies that help cities engage with and respond to constituents. An alum of both City Year and Haverford College, Chris was named a Public Official of the Year in 2011 by Governing Magazine.
