“We welcome Alaina’s exceptional expertise and strategic approach to navigating priorities that advance the goals of the City’s most critical institutions,” said John LaRow, Senior Vice President, New York. “Alaina’s unparalleled experience in public sector operations and her extensive relationships across leaders in government, business, and mission-driven organizations will be a clear differentiator for our clients in New York and throughout the company’s portfolio.”

Her efforts advanced nationally recognized campaigns to diversify corporate boardrooms and C-Suites of some of the nation’s largest companies, drove a strategic plan to address climate risk in NYC Retirement Systems (NYCRS) portfolios, appointed the city’s first Chief Diversity Officer and overhauled purchasing within the Comptroller’s Office such that 50 cents of every dollar now goes to a minority- or women-owned business.
She previously served as Chief of Staff to the Office of the Manhattan Borough President, which led to successful negotiations for expansions of three major universities (Columbia, Fordham, NYU) during the city’s land-use review process, building engagement and trust with affected communities, preserving neighborhoods and creating thousands of jobs. Early in her career, Ms. Gilligo also managed communications and policy research initiatives in the New York State legislature.
