    Beginning July 1, McCarthy, 57, will succeed Gregory K. Ingram, who is

retiring after serving as president since 2005. McCarthy will bring new vision

and a fresh perspective to the Cambridge-based think tank as it continues to

promote dialogue and sound land use policy in the U.S. and around the world,

said Kathryn J. Lincoln, chair of the board of directors at the Lincoln


    "He is visionary and energetic, and his leadership will be

transformational," said Lincoln.

    "This is a pivotal and important time for cities around the world. The

Lincoln Institute plays a unique and extremely important role in identifying

the central importance of land policies, across a range of social and economic

challenges," said McCarthy. "The story of opportunity is told in how we

organize ourselves spatially. Without an effective response, we will double the

one billion people living in unplanned settlements around the world's cities in

the next thirty years. Land use decisions made today will dictate the life

chances of generations to come."

    As director of Metropolitan Opportunity (

http://www.fordfoundation.org/issues/metropolitan-opportunity ) at the Ford

Foundation, McCarthy supported collaborative regional efforts to overcome the

social, economic and spatial isolation of disadvantaged populations living in

and around metropolitan areas worldwide. Prior to joining the Ford Foundation

in 2000, he was a senior research associate at the Center for Urban and

Regional Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has

worked as professor of economics at Bard College; resident scholar at the

Jerome Levy Economics Institute; visiting scholar and member of the High Table

at King's College of Cambridge University; visiting scholar at the University

of Naples, Italy; and research associate at the Centre for Independent Social

Research in St. Petersburg, Russia.

    The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, founded in 1974, is a leading

resource for key issues concerning the use, regulation, and taxation of land.

Providing high-quality education and research, the Lincoln Institute strives to

improve public dialogue and decisions about land policy.
