He’s currently the executive director of the Massachusetts Water Pollution Abatement Trust and has previously served in management positions with Ernst & Young and the Boston Housing Authority.

Gov. Deval Patrick previously named Steven Crosby, a UMass-Boston professor and former state official, to chair the commission.

Gayle Cameron, a former New Jersey state police investigator, was named to the commission by Attorney General Martha Coakley.

Patrick, Grossman and Coakley will jointly name the final two members of the panel.
