Special Honoree: Andrew Genn

Andrew Genn, Sr. Vice President, Ports & Transportation, NYC EDC has been the most steadfast advocate that the working waterfront has had in City government over the past decade-plus that he has worked at the New York City Economic Development Corporation.  His knowledge of the maritime industry, its history, its current needs and its vital role in the City’s future make Andrew an articulate and passionate spokesperson and no one in the Bloomberg Administration hasn’t learned from him on this subject.  He is the City’s unofficial embassador to the Port Authority, his diplomatic skills forwarding what is right for the working waterfront even in turbulent times.  A peacekeeper by nature, a champion of labor and the underdog, and a true New Yorker, Andrew has added greatly to the debate as to what is the “highest and best use” for the City’s waterfront.” – Venetia Lannon, Regional Director, DEC Region 2

Come join us for a fun-filled evening of food, drink and friends. We are doubly honored to have Helena Durst, President of New York Water Taxi and Circle Line Downtown, to present the award to our special honoree Andrew Genn.

Proceeds to benefit the Working Harbor Committee in its mission
to educate residents, visitors and youth on the vitality and importance
of our working harbor and its educational programs
to introduce youth to opportunities in the maritime world.
