EWING — Greater Trenton, the public-private nonprofit that was launched last fall to spur economic development in the capital city, has named veteran real estate executive George Sowa as its founding CEO.
Sowa, a native Trentonian whose family has roots in the city dating back over 100 years, has already been on the job for two weeks.
The announcement was made Monday after a nationwide search and more than 100 candidates were vetted.
Sowa takes the helm after more than 18 years at Brandywine Realty Trust, which, under his leadership, was chosen as the developer for Camden’s Gateway District, a 1.5-million-square- foot mixed-use project. In previous jobs, he was involved in two development projects in New Brunswick that totaled over $100 million.
