Bart Friedman said: “I am very honored and pleased to be joining the Leadership Council of Concordia. It has been a pleasure to work alongside the talented, engaged, and charismatic leadership of Concordia these past several years. The work that Concordia is doing is indispensable to improving the quality and depth of our society’s dialogue. Discussing solutions to problems and not just providing criticism is Concordia’s way. I am proud to become a member of the Leadership Council.”

Concordia’s Co-Founder, President & CEO, Matthew Swift, said: “We formally welcomed Bart to Concordia as a Senior Advisor in 2019, and since then he’s played an invaluable role in driving our evolution and growth. As such, it’s with great pride that we today announce Bart’s appointment to our Leadership Council. With his extensive experience as senior counsel at Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP, his current role as Chairman of Giant Eagle Enterprises, and his service on numerous boards of leading arts organizations, including the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the Guggenheim Museum, and The Juilliard School, Bart brings with him invaluable insight into the workings of the legal, private, and nonprofit worlds. We’re very fortunate to be working with him in this new and enhanced capacity.”
