Eatontown, New Jersey—Earlier this month Ken Sisk, a National Client Manager for Partner Engineering and Science, Inc. (Partner), was named one of the Governors of the New York Building Foundation (NYBF), an organization addressing issues concerning all aspects of the City’s built design and construction industry.
As a Governor, Mr. Sisk joins as an esteemed group of building professionals in an advisory role to help further NYBF’s commitment to promote the long-term growth and well being of the industry through a program of research, educational and philanthropic activities. “It’s a great honor to be named a Governor by the NYBF. The long-term sustainability of this area’s construction industry is critical to overall economic success and I hope to be able to contribute to that in this role.”
At Partner, a national engineering, environmental and energy consulting firm, Mr. Sisk oversees the company’s expansion into New York City. Holding a Professional Engineering license in three states and degrees in both Civil Engineering and Management and Finance, Mr. Sisk’s background is impressive in both depth and diversity. In his career of 25+ years, he has specialized in real estate development, civil engineering, mergers and acquisitions, project management, and business development.
In recent months, Mr. Sisk has worked on a number of key construction and development projects in New York City, including projects in Manhattan and The Bronx. In his new role as a NYBF Governor, Mr. Sisk hopes his expertise in civil engineering and environmental remediation will be valuable in furthering the city’s site cleanup and redevelopment initiatives.
“As the real estate development industry continues to pick up steam, an increasing number of inner-city projects will involve infill on sites with long histories and a high potential for environmental impacts. Understanding the interplay between engineering and environmental disciplines, and being able to apply innovative solutions, is critical to the successful and sustainable execution of these projects.”
Since its inception in 1998, NYBF has provided significant support to the development of New York City through grants and contributions to community building projects, promotion of safer worksites, and by providing public information on the impact of building activity and the need for continued infrastructure investment.
