Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter yesterday appointed Andrew Altman as commerce director and deputy mayor for planning and economic development. Both Altman and the city’s new managing director, Camille Cates Barnett, were also sworn in yesterday.

“As a native Philadelphian who has led large-scale development projects including the successful economic redevelopment of Washington, D.C., Andrew will bring unparalleled experience and perspective to the Commerce Department,” Nutter said in a statement. “I am incredibly pleased that he answered my call to service and returned home to aid in the economic growth of Philadelphia.”
