New Gateway Trustee Zaro: It’s Time to Look Beyond the First Move on the Chessboard


April 30, 2018

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.'"
