Mr. Pearlmutter is the Executive Director of the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation.
Prior to joining CPARF, Michael served as the Executive Director of the Partnership for Clean Competition Research Collaborative for seven years. In that role, he developed, directed, and drove the strategy for the largest anti-doping research organization in the world. He established a prosperous fundraising model that included global partnerships, cultivated relationships with scientists, helped build a Scientific Advisory Board with more than 300 years of collective experience, and revolutionized the organization’s grant administration process — all while shaping the organization into a thought leader in its space and strengthening relationships with the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee, the US Anti-Doping Agency, Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the National Hockey League, the PGA TOUR, and others.
Michael also previously served as the Executive Director of the North Carolina Institute of Political Leadership, a multi-partisan nonprofit educational organization, where he launched a service-learning program that introduced undergraduate students to public service as a career option and organized a merger with the NC Center for Women in Public Service.
Michael holds a Bachelor of Science degree in quantitative economics from the United States Naval Academy. He served in the US Navy as a submarine officer before earning Masters in Business Administration from Babson College. Michael is a proud husband to Kim and devoted father to twins Emme and Holden.
