Steven Landau is Vice President of Economic Development Research Group, and leads the firm’s aviation economic and policy practice. He has conducted national scale studies for the transportation research board and national industry organizations, as well as studies for large hub airports, state aviation bureaus, small commercial airports, general aviation airports and private sector aviation stakeholders in the United States and abroad. This work includes economic impact and economic contribution analyses, benefit cost assessments, land use evaluations, industry agglomeration projections, multi-modal air cargo valuations, value capture opportunities, and portions of environmental impact statements.
As part of the aviation practice, Steven has worked with business leaders, college and university faculty, and policy makers on municipal, regional and national levels, in addition to airport sponsors, managers, tenants, passengers and owners of based aircraft. This multi-layering enables EDR Group to fully document the reliance of economies on airports, potential economic development to be realized from airport improvements and the likely effects of airport closures/disinvestment.
In addition to aviation, Steven also plays a leadership role in EDR Group’s infrastructure and local or regional economic development practice, including the economic analysis of proposed policies and investments, and tax implications for highway, transit, water, sewer and broadband. Steven holds a Master's in City Planning degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a BA in United States History from the University of Massachusetts. Prior to joining EDR Group, he was the Director of Economic Research and Analysis for the University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute, and before that managed economic development at the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (part of the Boston area MPO).
