Morrissey has been working with state officials for several years on the Marine Commerce Terminal Project, now under construction in the South End. 

He also led a fact-finding mission to Europe, so local officials could learn more about the offshore wind industry there. 

Morrissey will be replaced at the E-D-C by Derek Santos, the agency’s Director of Operations.
