The Howard Hughes Corporation announced recently that Andrew Schwartz and Zach Winick have been named Co-Presidents of the company’s New York region and will lead the continued revitalization of the Seaport neighborhood in Lower Manhattan. Schwartz will lead partnerships and programming and Winick will oversee operations and development as they succeed outgoing regional president Saul Scherl, who will continue to serve in an advisory role at HHC. The new Co-Presidents have worked closely with Scherl at the Seaport in recent years to drive the area’s transformation and growth and establish the Seaport as New York’s premier dining and entertainment destination.
Schwartz has been with HHC at the Seaport since 2015, most recently serving as Executive Vice President of Strategic Partnerships. He spearheaded the company’s partnership platforms—developing a wide array of programming and activations including The Rooftop at Pier 17 Summer Concert Series—and has managed the Seaport’s award-winning in-house creative design studio and its digital and marketing teams. Schwartz joined HHC after serving as Senior Vice President of Global Partnerships at Brooklyn Sports and Entertainment, where he was responsible for overseeing all partnership sales for the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets and the NHL’s New York Islanders at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. He has more than two decades of experience managing strategic marketing partnerships, advertising campaigns, and events, including for SiriusXM, Major League Baseball, the New Jersey Devils, and the National Hockey League.
Winick joined HHC in 2017 and has served as a Senior Vice President in the New York region for the past two years, where he has been responsible for the day-to-day operations at the Seaport with oversight of leasing, hospitality, and financial management. With more than 15 years of real estate experience across a variety of asset classes, Winick will lead the next phase of growth and revitalization for the Seaport. Prior to joining HHC, Winick was a Managing Director at Edison Properties, where he oversaw a division of office leasing and management at the historic Hippodrome Building in Midtown Manhattan. Earlier in his career, he was a commercial real estate broker with Mutual Real Estate Corporation specializing in the repositioning and sale of industrial real estate.
