Gov. Phil Murphy has named Andrew Gross, the director of political affairs at the office of the Consulate General of Israel in New York, to serve as executive director of the New Jersey Israel Commission.

Gross will help the Murphy administration promote trade, culture and educational exchanges with Israel, as well as advance capital investment and joint business ventures, according to a press release issued by the Governor’s office.

“As global innovation leaders, New Jersey and Israel have enjoyed a special relationship for decades, a relationship which I have continued to highlight and build upon since my visit to Israel last year,” said Murphy. “I’m thrilled to bring Andrew onto our team so he, alongside the board, can focus every day on enhancing that relationship to build on our cultural and economic ties, so that both New Jersey and Israel can benefit from continued economic growth, shared expertise in cutting-edge technology, and an expanded friendship.”

Before joining the Consulate General in 2012, Gross was a fellow at Burston-Marsteller, a New York public relations firm.
