The Building Trades Employers’ Association (BTEA) hosted the 2014 Alfred G. Gerosa Leadership Dinner at Cipriani Wall Street on June 11.
The annual event recognizes the leadership, commitment and vision of outstanding industry professionals and was attended by over 750 guests.
Named for the late construction industry visionary, Alfred G. Gerosa, the dinner honored three eminent men and women for their leadership and service to the industry over the course of their distinguished careers.
The honorees included, Sharon Greenberger, senior vice president of facilities development and engineering at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Lorraine Grillo, president and CEO at School Construction Authority, and David Rothstein, executive vice president of construction at Extell Development.
Greenberger has over 20 years experience in urban planning and development, design, construction and operations management.
At New York-Presbyterian Hospital she oversees the hospital’s Offices of Corporate Engineering, Facilities Operations, Facilities Design and Construction and Capital Asset Planning and Development.
Greenberger previously served as senior vice president at Columbia University Medical Center and held several leadership roles in the Bloomberg Administration.
Lorraine Grillo began her career at the New York City School Construction Authority over 18 years ago as a Community Relations specialist for the borough of Queens.
She was soon promoted to the position of director, then senior director of government and community Relations and again as senior director of real estate services.
In May of 2010, Mayor Bloomberg and Chancellor Klein appointed her acting president and CEO. After successfully opening 26 new schools, the single most successful year in School Construction Authority history, Grillo was appointed president and CEO.
David Rothstein, who has over 26 years of New York City building experience, manages construction activities from conception to completion for Extell Development projects in all locations.
A prior principal and founder of Pierpont Group, Rothstein was also formerly a principal at Millennium Partners and served as director of construction for General Atlantic Realty Corporation.
