Ex-convention center chief re-emerges as Reading Terminal chairman

0 comments

Al Mezzaroba, who resigned as CEO of the Pennsylvania Convention Center last August, is back in action.

Today he was named chairman of the Reading Terminal Market Corp. board of directors. The Reading Terminal Market is, of course, across the street from the Convention Center.

The job doesn't pay anything, and lasts as long as Mayor Nutter's four-year term.

Not-so-ironically, Nutter and Mezzaroba began working together at the Convention Center at the same time in 2003, Nutter as the center's board chairman and Mezzaroba as its president.

Mezzaroba is currently "of cousel" to Walker Bowman, a relatively new minority law firm.

The Reading Terminal board has seven members. The prior chairman, Ricardo M. Dunston, left the job in January after 6 1/2 years.
