Moore Named CRDA Interim Executive Director

Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) Deputy Executive Director Maisha Y. Moore has been named interim executive director. Current CRDA Executive Director Sean Pattwell will be leaving the Authority at the start of 2024.

In her new role, Moore will continue to steer the CRDA towards fulfillment of its statutory purpose by focusing and investing in the revitalization and development of Atlantic City, growing economic opportunities, and committing resources to the community.

She joined the CRDA in April, 2022. As the deputy executive director, Moore manages the community development grants and sponasorships process. She serves on the Visit Atlantic City and the Jersey Shore Partnership Boards.

Prior to joining CRDA, Moore worked for the City of Atlantic City Municipal Government. In that role, she served as the former mayor’s chief of staff, where she directed the day-to-day operations of the mayor’s office and collaborated and guided City Hall department processes and functions to current industry standards for municipal services. Moore also collaborated with stakeholders within the State of New Jersey to bring new direction and opportunities to the city.

“On behalf of the CRDA Board of Directors, we are confident that Maisha’s governmental experience will enable her to steer the CRDA during this transition,” said CRDA Board Chairman Modia Butler.

Prior to working for the City of Atlantic City, Moore worked for non-profits in grant writing and under U.S. Senator Cory Booker, with a focus on Uniform Services, Department of Veteran Affairs, Department of Corrections, Internal Revenue Service and Federal Emergency Management Agency.
