Delaware River and Bay Authority Executive Director Scott A. Green to Retire

(New Castle, DE) Today, Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA) officials announced that Executive Director Scott A. Green will retire in early February. Green has served as Executive Director since April, 2012. The Board of Commissioners will meet this week to select a new Executive Director.

“I am extremely proud of the DRBA and of the People who work on our bridges and ferries, and at our airports,” said Green. “Every single day, no matter the conditions, they show up excited to provide safe, customer friendly service for our customers.” As Executive Director, Green focused on fiscal responsibility and customer service. “The DRBA does not receive tax revenue from the two States that it serves, so it has a special obligation to its customers to provide great service in a way that is self-sustainable.”

“I am honored to have served with Scott Green. In five short years as Executive Director, Scott revamped and revitalized the Delaware River and Bay Authority in its entirety,” said William E. Lowe, III, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the DRBA. “We are fortunate Mr. Green chose to bring his acumen, intellect, and personality to the DRBA.”

During Green’s administration, he emphasized customer service, workplace safety and employee education. Cape May - Lewes Ferry ridership rose for the first time in decades and ferry terminals were rebranded as community gathering places that offer outstanding waterfront restaurants, concerts and events. The DRBA and State and local governments worked as partners to develop new and improved facilities at DRBA Airports and the Ferry, including a recent initiative to promote the safe development of the drone industry in New Jersey and Delaware.

Executive Director Green also serves the community as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Delaware Technical Community College and as a member of the Delaware Judicial Nominating Commission. He is a former member of the Board of Trustees of the University of Delaware.

A graduate of the University of Delaware, Mr. Green earned his law degree at the Washington College of Law at American University. He was a partner in several law firms and retired from MBNA/Bank of America in 2006. He is a resident of Rehoboth Beach, DE.
