Knight Foundation names new Miami program director


    Miami-based nonprofit John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, which has spearheaded local efforts to mold South Florida into a hub of technology and innovation, has appointed a new Miami program director.

    Raul Moas, former managing director of Miami-based angel investor group Accelerated Growth Partners, or AGP, will head the Knight Foundation’s Miami program as director, effective March 1.

    Moas will succeed former program director Matt Haggman, who resigned from the role last summer before announcing a bid for U.S. Congress one month later. Chris Caines, who joined Knight as an intern in 2015, has served as interim director since Haggman’s departure.
