Pattwell to leave CRDA; search for new executive director begins

Sean Pattwell will leave his role as the executive director of the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority to pursue other opportunities, three people with knowledge of the situation told ROI-NJ.

The sources requested anonymity due to the fluid nature of the situation.

It is unclear when Pattwell will leave — likely by the end of the year, one source said — or where he may be headed, though he is expected to rejoin the private sector.

CRDA already has begun having discussions about his replacement, who ultimately will be appointed by Gov. Phil Murphy.

Pattwell started in his role on April 1, 2022, replacing Matt Doherty.

Prior to joining CRDA, Pattwell spent decades working in the insurance industry, both domestically and internationally, including a stint as co-CEO of Herbert L. Jamison & Co. and as the founding chairman of Grosvenor Brokers in London, England.
