After heading the Long Island Association for more than a decade, Kevin Law is joining Tritec as a partner and executive vice president.
The East Setauket-based real estate development firm will count on Law to help the company with its relationships with local government officials and navigate the arduous approvals process for its future projects.
Tritec, one of Long Island’s more prolific developers, has built several major projects in recent years, including the mixed-use New Village in Patchogue, the Shipyard in Port Jefferson, and the Dealertrack headquarters in North Hills. The company is in the midst of developing Station Square, a mixed-use project aimed at reimagining 50 acres around the Ronkonkoma Long Island Rail Road station and the 260-unit apartment complex called the Wel in Lindenhurst, which is slated to open soon.
Tritec principal Bob Coughlan said the addition of Law will help the company to secure development opportunities.
“We are very excited about having Kevin join our team,” Coughlan told LIBN. “Kevin Law has been a household name in the business and political community on Long Island, and in New York State, for many years. Kevin brings tremendous business and legal skills and incredible intangibles to Tritec. His leadership, integrity and problem-solving skills are a fantastic addition to our already stacked team. Kevin is a genuinely nice person, fun to be around, and will fit right into our culture at Tritec. We look forward to many years of working to strengthen Long island communities together.”
Law announced in February that he was stepping down from his leadership post at the LIA. In an email to the LIA board, Law cited some of the LIA’s accomplishments under his watch, including securing billions of dollars for the Long Island Rail Road’s Third Track project; the creation of a research corridor from Brookhaven National Lab to the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research; and for investments in the area’s infrastructure and downtowns.
The LIA board is currently considering several applicants to succeed Law as president and CEO of the business organization.
