One of the first people Encore Boston Harbor hired to pound the pavement for the resort casino was John Tocco, and the longtime community relations expert announced this week he is leaving his role at Encore Boston Harbor to pursue private consulting.
Tocco said he plans to work with his wife and their consulting practice, which has grown substantially since he left years ago to take the job with Encore.
“I look forward to supporting my wife and her team grow A10 Associates into a nationally recognized Government Relations firm,” he said. “Additionally, I am excited to continue to work with Mayor DeMaria and regional elected officials to bring new investment to the region and realize the vison that we have all worked so hard to create. As we said during the campaign, ‘It’s Our Time,’ and I look forward to working closely with the community to achieve this dream.”
One of the clients he will be working with initially is Vineyard Wind, a project for wind power off of Cape Cod.
