(TRENTON) - State Treasurer Elizabeth Maher Muoio today announced Darryl Isherwood will join the Department of the Treasury as Director of Communications. Isherwood, who is currently Sector Lead for Film and Digital Media at the New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA) and previously was Senior Advisor for Economic Development Communications in the Office of the Governor, will join the department on Monday, January 23.
“I am thrilled that someone with Darryl’s experience will be leading our dynamic communications office as we enter the FY 2024 budget season,” said Treasurer Muoio. “We worked closely with Darryl when he was in the Governor’s Office, and his knowledge of the budget process, together with his relationships with the state press corps and his ability to communicate complex issues, will be a huge asset moving forward.”
As a Senior Advisor in the Governor’s communications office, Isherwood was responsible for communicating the Administration’s economic and fiscal policies. At NJEDA, Isherwood acted as a liaison between the state and potential filmmakers and studio developers looking to take advantage of the state’s best-in-class tax incentive program.
“Congratulations to Darryl on this exciting new chapter in his career,” said NJEDA CEO Tim Sullivan. “I have mixed emotions about his departure from Team EDA as he’s been such a huge part of the state’s success in film and television under Gov. Murphy’s leadership, but getting the chance to work with Treasurer Muoio and her great team is a hard opportunity to pass up. I know Liz will find Darryl to be a trusted, dedicated, hardworking, creative member of her team.”
“It has been an honor to serve the state of New Jersey over the past four years and I am extremely excited for this new opportunity,” Isherwood said. “It has been tremendously gratifying to be part of the state’s fiscal resurgence and I look forward to getting to work communicating the Administration’s economic vision.”
