The T.G. Solomon Award for Entrepreneurship and Civic Engagement is “an award for what you will do in your lifetime to make New Orleans a better place.” Matt Schwartz, Domain’s co-chief executive officer, was honored with 2017’s recognition as an entrepreneur who has emerged as an impactful civic leader.
Matt’s commitment to enhancing the quality of life and sense of community in New Orleans originated in the months following Hurricane Katrina, when he and business partner Chris Papamichael saw the opportunity to create affordable housing in the city. Now over 10 years later, he is an active member of numerous advisory boards and non-profit organizations. His allegiance to the city and dedication to creating community value continue to shape everything Domain does.
