Cahill Strategies LLC is very proud that City and State has named Vice President Kristin Senese to the magazine’s annual 40 under 40 Rising Stars list of New York policy and government professionals.
In managing our firm’s Construction Practice which represents some of the largest developers, construction management firms, general contractors and subs, Kristin solves some of the most complex problems when dealing with city agencies and public utilities. She is proficient at navigating the different perspectives and goals of each client in an effort to anticipate the needs of every project until completion.
“Congratulations to Kristin on being honored with a 40 Under 40 award recognizing her talent, dedication, and success on behalf of our clients. We are so proud of her accomplishments. Thank you for being such a valuable member of the Cahill team.”
– Diane Cahill, Founder & CEO
From City & State:
“It’s honestly thrilling.” That’s how Kristin Senese describes her work navigating obstacles from government agencies regarding easements, regulations, historic districts and conservation codes to help her construction clients reach their goals. She leads the construction practice of Cahill Strategies, representing construction firms, contractors and developers in New York and in other states. She says there’s a satisfaction in seeing a project go from a hole in the ground to its opening day and knowing all the challenges that had to be overcome in the process. She recently helped to launch a nonprofit called The Construction Workforce Project, which aims to help nonunion workers access construction training and job opportunities.
The Queens native joined Diane Cahill in 2016 when Cahill launched her eponymous communications, government relations and lobbying firm, and has since watched it grow from three founding employees to more than a dozen. There are more clients as well, and the projects, from boating safety legislation to an initiative to install more speed cameras in school zones, have become more complex. Senese compares the work to a chess game. “There’s always a new challenge and an obstacle that needs to be faced. There’s no cookie-cutter response to anything,” Senese says.
As she continues to grow into her leadership role, she draws motivation from seeing projects completed and watching her staff evolve and learn.
“When you see somebody that you’ve trained accomplishing major milestones, it gives you new hope and a new, fresh look into something through their eyes,” she says.
City & State’s Albany 40 under 40 Rising Stars list is online now and in print later this month.
