Feniosky Pena-Mora named in 2023 Construction Power 100 - City & State New York
April 09, 2023
City & State’s Construction Power 100 highlights the most influential individuals in the industry, including executives at construction companies of all sizes and types. This list also features government officials who pick and choose projects to prioritize, dole out contracts and ensure regulatory compliance – and who, of course, show up for high-profile groundbreakings and ribbon-cuttings. Given the influence of organized labor in New York, the list also features a number of labor leaders – as well as others who want to diversify the industry, influence relevant city and state policies or simply advocate for more construction.
Feniosky A. Peña-Mora is now an academic at Columbia University, but he hasn’t left government and policy work behind. The former commissioner of the New York City Department of Design and Construction serves on the board of NYC Health + Hospitals, chairing its capital committee, and recently joined the board of the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure. At Columbia, he is a professor focusing on civil engineering, engineering mechanics, earth and environmental engineering and computer science – and also runs the school’s Center for Buildings, Infrastructure and Public Space.
