Danny Meyer Will Chair Board of NYCEDC

Danny Meyer, founder of Union Square Hospitality Group and Shake Shack, was sworn in Wednesday as the board chairman of the New York City Economic Development Corporation. Meyer will lead the 27-member board for the city’s primary economic development vehicle.

Vicki Been, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development, said, “Danny will serve as a valuable thought partner to the NYCEDC team, bringing fresh perspectives and industry expertise to our fair economic recovery agenda.”

Meyer said, “For too long, New Yorkers have not been able to gather together to hear the clinking of glasses in restaurants or see the lights on Broadway. We’re ready to safely re-engage the culture, travel, and hospitality industries – and the people who make them so special – and get back to the business and heart of what makes our city beloved by all.”
