Former assistant New Jersey Commissioner of Transportation Anthony J. Attanasio has launched a new consulting firm, Hawk Strategies, to provide strategic and government affairs services in the business and trade association sectors.
A seasoned political operative and infrastructure expert, Attanasio served as deputy chief of staff at New Jersey Transit before assistant DOT commissioner at age 30. He began his political career working for Senate President Donald DiFrancesco.
Attanasio spent four years as the executive director of the New Jersey Utility & Transportation Contractors Association, and was a vice president at AECOM, one of the world’s largest engineering firms.
“Hawk Strategies puts into practice first-rate institutional knowledge, strategic thinking and a vast network of relationships across a range of services to deliver superior results,” Attanasio said. “Our strategic thinking and execution are ingrained in all of the services we offer and the work we do.”
In addition to government affairs and transportation advocacy, Hawk Strategies will also focus on political and community relations, grassroots organizing, and event planning.
“Finally, we pride ourselves on the energy and passion we bring to every task. Being a strategic extension of our clients, their goals become our goals,” said Attanasio. “I am humbled for this opportunity and am grateful for my family, friends and mentors for all of their love and support. Without it, I wouldn’t be in a position to take this leap.”Hawk Strategies Announcement Press Release 4-16-19
