After Two Decades a New President and CEO at the New York Building Congress

Carlo A. Scissura (photo-right), a lifelong New Yorker and veteran of Brooklyn politics, business, and economic development, has been named President and CEO of the New York Building Congress (NYBC). He succeeds Richard T. Anderson (photo-center), who has served as President of NYBC for the past 23 years and will continue to serve the organization as a consultant with the title of President Emeritus.

“As President and CEO, I will work tirelessly to meet the needs of our membership, both private and public, assist in the continued growth of the construction industry, and ensure that the Building Congress remains at the forefront of economic development, policy and legislation in New York and beyond”, said Mr. Scissura, who has served as President and CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce since 2012.

“Succeeding Dick Anderson, who has been the face of the New York Building Congress for more than two decades, is certainly going to be a challenge, but we are certain that Carlo Scissura is the ideal person to take on this role,” said NYBC Chairman Richard Cavallaro (photo-left).
