Kevin Law confirmed to lead NYS’ primary business-aid agency

Kevin Law

Local executive Kevin Law was approved by the state Senate on Friday to serve as board chairman of Empire State Development, the state’s primary business-aid agency.

The position is unpaid, and Law said he will continue to work at Tritec Real Estate Co. as a partner and executive vice president. He joined the East Setauket-based developer last year after leading the Long Island Association business group for 10½ years.

Law, 62, of St. James, was among 80 nominations from Gov. Kathy Hochul that senators ratified at 12:15 a.m. on Friday in a single voice vote. All will serve on state boards and authorities without compensation.

Nearly three hours later, the Senate ended its regular session for the year.

Hochul tapped Law to serve as ESD board chair in October but he couldn’t join the agency until his appointment was confirmed by the Senate.
