New York City deputy mayor for economic development Robert Lieber announced his resignation last week, effective next month. He will become a senior executive at affiliates of Island Capital Group LLC, a New York-based real estate banking and asset management firm.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg appointed Lieber to the post in December 2007 after he served for nearly a year as president of the city’s Economic Development Corp. and chairman of the New York City Industrial Development Agency. Lieber came from Lehman Brothers where he had been a managing director in its private-equity division.
