Gary Rose will leave his post as chief of the New Jersey Office of Economic Growth at the end of this month, with Angie McGuire, the current deputy chief of the department, stepping in as acting head until Gov. Jon Corzine finds a replacement.
Rose took over his position shortly after Corzine took office in 2006. McGuire, who is also the current acting director of the Commerce Commission, has served as deputy chief since March 2006. She spent 20 years in the computing and telecom industry. She has a degree in economics from the University of California at Los Angeles and a master’s degree in public administration from Rutgers University.
