Nicholas Terzulli has been appointed business development director at the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency.
Terzulli, who has worked in Republican political campaigns and for conservative policy organizations, will work with local and out-of-state businesses interested in expanding in Nassau. The industrial development agency provides an array of tax breaks.
Terzulli’s appointment Wednesday night marks an enlargement of the IDA staff, which was reduced from six people to four last year. Executive director Joseph J. Kearney said the new position was needed to respond to more requests for economic development assistance from companies and not-for-profit organizations. Terzulli’s pay hasn’t yet been determined.
The East Meadow resident graduated from New York Law School last year and served as executive director of New Yorkers for Growth, a business lobbying group.
He also worked on Republican Harry Wilson’s unsuccessful campaign for state comptroller last year and held three public relations jobs, including one at the Manhattan Institute, a think tank.
