MEET THE 2019 NYC TECH INFLUENCERS
Undoubtedly, New York is becoming a growing destination for companies to expand their operations. Sitting at the helm of this charge is Mark Anthony Thomas, the Senior Vice President of Partnerships at the NYCEDC. Thomas' team is responsible for serving as a catalyst and first point of contact with the city for these businesses, small and large, that are looking to build their presence within the city's five boroughs.
Thomas came to the NYCEDC after working with Mayor Eric Garcetti in LA, where Thomas served as the Director of Operations Innovation Team, which worked to improve the city's operations for procurement, asset management, risk management, and sanitation. Thomas came to the public sector from the media world with roles at Georgia Pacific, Ben Gurion, and Urban Future.
Thomas' work at the NYCEDC has been instrumental in cementing NYC's positioning as a global center for innovation and destination of choice for companies expanding As New York continues to draw more anchor tenants and build world-class programs like the recently announced CyberNYC initiative, it will be Thomas leading the efforts serving as an ambassador for the New York economy.
