Former New Jersey state police supervisor Kevin Fowler was named Head of Security for the World Trade Center.  

He beat out a list of candidates including former FBI officials with global security backgrounds, security officials at several Wall Street banks and media companies and other present and retired NYPD and federal law enforcement officials.

“We met with a number of very well qualified candidates and were impressed by the breadth and diversity of Mr. Fowler’s management experience and that he would be good fit for 1 World Trade Center," said Durst spokesman Jordan Barowitz.

Fowler will work directly under Edward Kahrer, the Durst director of security and a former head of the FBI’s Newark office.
