NYC Housing Agency Taps Wagner Alumnus/Adjunct for Top Post

A recent NYU Wagner graduate and current adjunct assistant professor of public administration, David Quart, has been named to a senior-level post in the housing agency of the New York City government.

Quart's new position, effective in early May, is Chief of Staff and Deputy Commissioner of Strategy, Evaluation and Communications at the Department of Housing, Preservation and Development.

He has previously worked in a senior management capacity for the city's Economic Development Corporation, a quasi-public organization that works to encourage economic growth throughout New York City, and for AKRF Inc., a leading environmental, planning, and engineering consulting firm.

Quart's selection adds to a growing list of people in the Wagner community who have been recruited by the new city administration of Mayor Bill de Blasio.
