Frank N. Newman has been chosen to lead the Broad Center, which operates two executive-development programs for current and aspiring urban superintendents.

Mr. Newman, 61, who began his job as the chief executive officer of the New York City-based center last month, is a former deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Mr. Newman serves as a director of the New York City-based Dow Jones & Co. and GUS, a retail and business-services group in the United Kingdom.

The Broad Center, founded in 2001, is supported by grants from the Los Angeles-based Broad Foundation.

Rose M. Albanese-DePinto is the new senior counselor for school intervention and development for the New York City public school system.

Ms. Albanese-DePinto, 52, previously served as the senior instructional manager for secondary education reform for the 1.1 million-student district.

Part of Ms. Albanese-DePinto’s new job is to supervise the transformation of the city’s “impact schools,” 12 of which were identified in January as the first phase of an effort by the school system, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s office, and the city police department to address safety concerns at particular schools.

She began her job Feb. 24.

Michaela D. Platzer has been named the vice president of information and research for the National Association of Independent Schools.

Formerly the vice president of research and policy analysis at the Santa Clara, Calif.-based American Electronics Association, Ms. Platzer, 44, left the organization last month to join the Washington-based NAIS.

The NAIS represents 1,200 independent K-12 schools in 35 countries.
