Seasoned industry veteran will provide value to clients through disciplined management.
NEW YORK, NY, Apr 17, 2015 — Mancini•Duffy is pleased to announce the promotion of Thomas Cavanagh, AIA, LEED AP, to the roles of principal and executive vice president of the firm. Tom joined Mancini•Duffy in early 2014, and has been instrumental in the management of its architectural projects, such as the build-out of the 32-story, 250-room Tommie Hotel in Midtown Manhattan and the building renovation and new building addition at 17 John Street.
“In his new role, Tom will work with our project managers to streamline the delivery process,” explained Christian D. Giordano, Mancini•Duffy’s President. “We’re entering a period of growth, so it’s important that we manage that growth wisely. So as we hire more people and are engaged with ever-more ambitious projects, we’ll be able to meet—and even surpass—our clients’ expectations for quality and reliability.”
Tom excels at complex, multi-teamed efforts and has held a variety of leadership roles throughout his career. He’s been a client: at Barclays Capital and St. John’s University, he directed architectural and interior design work, as well as the development of capital project master plans for real estate holdings. He’s held senior positions at Swanke Hayden Connell, handling large-scale office interior and architectural projects, and at Gensler, where he also managed a studio of professionals. At the real estate firm of Jones Lang LaSalle, Tom led the team responsible for the infrastructure and technology of all critical systems at the Bank of America Tower, currently New York City’s third tallest building.
“Tom is the perfect choice for this role,” added Mancini•Duffy Co-chairman and Chief Operating Officer Ted Hammer, “because his calm, low-key demeanor reassures his clients. Yet he also knows how to motivate his team to perform at its best. And he always works hard to make sure everyone’s on the same page. He embodies the hands-on approach to our projects that Mancini•Duffy clients have come to depend on.”
Mancini•Duffy is a full-service design firm specializing in architecture, planning, interior design, and graphic design services. Founded a hundred years ago, the firm is headquartered in New York City. Also, as a member of IPID, International Partners in Design, Mancini•Duffy serves the diverse needs of its expanding multi-national client base across the U.S. and in Great Britain, Europe, and East Asia.
