Weymouth: Union Point Moves to Hire New Executive Director

The Southfield Redevelopment Authority at the Union Point Development in Weymouth is getting close to hiring a new Executive Director.

The Collins Center search firm whittled down 3 finalists for the position.

However, the board’s first pick, Former Amesbury Mayor Thatcher Keezer, who has experience with the Fort Devens Redevelopment, has declined the offer.

“We learned over the weekend in meeting with Thatcher Keezer, who we designated as our first choice, that he is withdrawing from the process for personal reasons,” said Southfield Redevelopment Authority Chair Lyndsey Kruzer.

So now the board is offering the job to their second candidate, Paul Niedzwiecki, who has experience as the Executive Director of the Cape Cod Commission.

“My proposal, if the board wants to move forward with Paul, would be that we move to conditionally offer him the position of Executive Director, pending successful contract negotiations, and that we appoint a subgroup of the board or a member of the board, to spearhead the negotiations with him,” Kruzer explained.
