New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine last week announced that attorney Jerold Zaro will replace Gary Rose as chief of the state’s Office of Economic Growth. Rose left the post at the end of June.
Zaro will now head the department charged with maintaining and cultivating business development in the Garden State. He is president and managing partner at Ansell Zaro Grimm & Aaron PC in New Jersey, and has served as chairman of the board of Ocean Independent Bank. Previously, he sat on the boards of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority and the New Jersey Highway Authority.
