Murphy picks interim replacement for Delgado-Polanco

By David Wildstein, April 26 2019 11:13 am

Gov. Phil Murphy has named Manuel Da Silva, a construction industry veteran, as the acting chief executive officer of the New Jersey Schools Development Authority.

Da Silva, currently the SDA vice president of construction operations, will replace Lizette Delgado-Polanco, whose resignation is effective today.

“Providing the best possible educational facilities to the students of New Jersey is a responsibility I take very seriously. I look forward to taking on this challenge and leveraging my experience in construction and organizational management to support our children,” Murphy said.

Da Silva spent more than twenty years in the construction industry before joining the SDA in 2010 as a senior manager in the engineering section.  He previously worked at M. Alfieri Co., Inc., an Edison-based commercial property management company.

“I am confident Manny has the construction experience and the right temperament to guide the SDA through this period of transition,” said SDA Board Chair Rob Nixon. “Manny is well regarded by the Board and I look forward to their approval of him becoming Interim CEO.”
