Richard Anderson
New York Building Congress

As President of the New York Building Congress since 1994, Mr. Anderson has overseen the re-emergence of the 77-year-old public policy coalition, which represents the design, construction and real estate community. Among his accomplishments, Anderson has helped to increase the organization’s membership, strengthen its financial position, foster industry-wide cooperation, and most importantly, establish the Building Congress and its 300 constituent organizations as an influential coalition, advocating sensible long-term investment in New York City’s physical environment.
