David Tweedy, the latest Port Authority of New York and New Jersey executive to depart for the private sector, is reportedly headed to a Canadian private equity firm that invests in public/private partnership ventures.
Tweedy announced Monday that he will depart the agency, where he is the chief of capital planning. His last day will be on Jan. 10, but he declined to comment on his next job.
Tweedy departs the agency after five-and-a-half years as a senior executive, in which capacity he has helped oversee the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site. As the major construction project has drawn to a close, several of his colleagues have departed for other opportunities to work with large-scale building.
Phillippe Viser, another top Port Authority official, left the agency in September to go to the Related Companies, where he is now senior vice president of development on the company’s Hudson Yards project. And Richard Gladstone, the most recent defector, left for Trinity Real Estate in November. [Crain’s] — Julie Strickland
