Alan Luxenberg


Alan Luxenberg retired from FPRI after 44 years of service in a variety of capacities, most recently as President from 2012 through the end of 2019 (and Acting President from December 2010 to January 2012). As president, he opened the organization to diverse points of view while diversifying its sources of funding and fostering many institutional partnerships in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and elsewhere. In 1990, he founded FPRI’s Wachman Center (named for an earlier president, Marvin Wachman), which served as the outlet for FPRI’s educational programming.
