Robert Lieber, the city’s deputy mayor for economic development, will vacate his post next month and return to the private sector, Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced today.

Lieber, who joined the Bloomberg Administration in January 2007 as president of the New York City Economic Development Corporation, will become a senior executive at Anubis Advisors and C-III Capital Partners, which are affiliates of Island Capital Group, the New York City-based real estate merchant banking and asset management firm.

In a statement, Bloomberg credited Lieber with laying the groundwork to achieve the redevelopment of Willets Point and praised his work on Coney Island, Hunter’s Point South, Governors Island and the World Trade Center site. 

Larry Silverstein, president and CEO of World Trade Center developer Silverstein Properties, also had kind words. 

“Bob managed to steer the World Trade Center parties through long and difficult negotiations. And he did it with grace and charm, despite all the drama and complexity,” Silverstein said in a statement. TRD
