Brandon Muir, Executive Director

Brandon Muir is the Executive Director of the Reclaim New York Initiative. Coming to Reclaim with a management consulting and grassroots background, Muir helps mold complex policy issues into meaningful messages for the public. His experience helps ensure Reclaim Initiative takes a creative and engaging approach to advancing the reform New Yorkers need and deserve.

During his time with Deloitte Consulting in Washington, DC he led analytical engagements on mission-to-workflow alignment, process-efficiency modeling, and change-implementation efforts. His belief that all actions can be measured is a core tenet of his approach to building Reclaim New York Initiative. Also while at Deloitte, he developed an independent practice with clients including tech and retail companies, non-profit organizations and individuals.

Muir began his career in civic education with the International Republican Institute in Washington, DC and Latin America. He supported and eventually managed voter engagement efforts, institution-building programs, and government transparency initiatives in multiple countries across Central and South America. Fluent in Spanish, he spent extensive time in-country managing daily programmatic activities and staff. This level of interaction pushed him to ask a basic question, “How do we accurately measure an increase in democracy?”

Muir is also deeply engaged in several charitable causes. A former collegiate golfer, he serves on the Board of Directors for the George Washington Athletic National Advisory Council, he founded an athletic mentorship program at GWU, and he is the President Pro Tempore for the State Society of Arizona in Washington, DC. He holds a B.A. in International Affairs from the George Washington University and in his free time he’s likely to be found playing golf or practicing photography on the streets of New York City
