Elizabeth Lusskin will assume her role as president of the Long Island City Partnership on October 15.

The Long Island City Partnership has welcomed a new, yet experienced, president who will help the organization continue to thrive and build the growing area.

Elizabeth Lusskin, currently chief of staff and vice president of Strategic Initiatives at Polytechnic Institute of New York University, was appointed on September 25.

“This is a very special time for Long Island City, which has become a hub for new development while retaining its strong industrial base, helping to reinvigorate the borough,” said Lusskin. “I am thrilled for the opportunity to build on the Long Island City Partnership’s success in supporting this ‘city within the city.’”

In her new position, which she will assume on October 15, Lusskin will help strengthen connections between private and public divisions to promote Long Island City. She will help support the booming community and the accomplishments of local organizations and businesses.

“Liz is well positioned to lead the Partnership and drive its mission as new investment and existing uses combine to redefine the area as one of New York City’s hottest new neighborhoods and certainly one of its most diverse,” said Gary Kesner, chair of the board of LIC Partnership. “As Long Island City continues to evolve, Liz has the vision and on-point experience we need to help the Partnership to thrive.”

For more than two decades Lusskin worked as an attorney with an immense experience in economic development and government services. She also served as Deputy Commissioner for Programs and Development for the City of New York Department of Small Business Services, General Counsel of the Alliance for Downtown New York, Inc., and Legislative Counsel in the New York State Office of Federal Affairs in D.C., under Governor Mario Cuomo.
