In addition to his position with Archer & Greiner, Mroz serves as managing director of Archer Public Affairs LLC in Trenton, the law firm’s full-service government and external affairs affiliate. Prior to entering the private sector as a lawyer, lobbyist and public affairs consultant, Mroz held a number of high-ranking government positions, including chief counsel to former New Jersey Gov. Christie Whitman.

The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce was created in 1911 by business leaders, including Thomas Edison. The Board of Directors sets policy and direction for the organization, which represents the varying interests of its broad-based membership, ranging from single-person, home-based businesses to Fortune 500 companies with thousands of employees. It is considered one of the premier professional organizations in New Jersey.

“Along with everyone at the chamber, I thank Jim Carll for his years of service on the board. I feel honored to succeed him and to have the opportunity to work with so many luminaries of New Jersey’s business community,” Mroz said. “I am eager to join with my fellow directors, staff, and all chamber members to promote a more competitive and business-friendly New Jersey, and to pursue our ultimate goals of creating jobs and fostering economic vitality.”

In addition to serving as Gov. Whitman’s chief legal advisor, Mroz has held numerous important positions in government and campaigns, including those of Gov. Chris Christie, President George W. Bush and U.S. Sen. John McCain’s presidential run. As head of APA and counsel to Archer & Greiner, he provides strategic counsel, representation and advice on regulatory and governmental affairs, project development, financing, business development, issues management, corporate external affairs and related business law matters.

Among his many professional and civic activities, Mroz has served for more than a decade as a member of the board of directors of the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York, and is a member of the board’s Executive Committee. Part of the congressionally chartered, nationwide Federal Home Loan Bank System, the bank assists community lenders advance housing and growth in New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

Mroz also serves as a New Jersey Commissioner on the Delaware River & Bay Authority, appointed by Gov. Chris Christie. The bi-state agency, tasked with promoting interstate transportation and commerce with Delaware, oversees numerous facilities and projects, including the Delaware Memorial Bridge and five regional airports.
