Sills Cummis’ Jerry Zaro, a new Trustee of the Gateway Development Corporation (GDC), was interviewed by ROI-NJ regarding his appointment as the New Jersey representative of GDC.
As seen in this article, “Zaro, a member at Sills Cummis &
Gross P.C. in Newark, is a veteran of public service, having served the past
seven governors in some capacity, including being chairman of the New Jersey
Highway Authority, commissioner of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition
Authority and the chief of the Office of Economic Growth for the State of New
Jersey, a cabinet-level position.
He said all of those positions will help in his role as one of
three trustees at the GDC, joining Chair Steven Cohen (New York) and Vice Chair
Tony Coscia (Amtrak).
‘Those opportunities gave me the experience to understand how
agencies work, how to get information quickly, an understanding of both the
limitations and the power they have,’ he said. ‘Those understandings have
enabled me to very quickly do the deep dive with the staff at Gateway.'"
