Mike Elmendorf President & Chief Executive Officer
Mike Elmendorf Mike Elmendorf was named President and CEO of the Associated General Contractors of New York State (AGC NYS), New York's leading construction industry association, in February 2011.
Previously, Elmendorf had served as New York State Director of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), New York's largest small business advocacy association, where he lead a resurgence of the organization, establishing it as one of the Empire State's most powerful and effective business organizations.
Prior to joining NFIB, Elmendorf spent 11 years in the administration of New York Governor George E. Pataki.
Elmendorf has extensive experience in government, having served as Special Assistant to the Governor and Director of Intergovernmental Affairs. In that role, he was a member of the Governor's senior staff and served as the Governor's advisor on state-federal, regional, state-to-state and international relations. He was responsible for a broad range of policy initiatives, and worked with officials from across New York on the local, state and federal levels. Elmendorf was also the lead negotiator for New York State on the historic Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Water Resources Compact, which was approved by all eight Great Lakes states' governors and legislatures, the United States Congress and the President of the United States, protecting the water resources of the Great Lakes region while balancing the need for economic development and growth.
A longtime community leader, Elmendorf serves on a number of boards and is a founder of the nationally recognized Colonie Youth Court program.
Small business roots run deep for Mike Elmendorf. He grew up in a family of small businesspeople and saw firsthand the challenges and rewards of running your own business. His mother and stepfather own and operate Fritze Jewelers in Colonie, New York, a family business that has been in operation in New York's Capital District for more than 60 years. His father spent many years in the bar and restaurant business in the Albany area.

Yet another good sign is the multibillion-dollar programs planned or under way for some of New York City's major bridges, says Mike Elmendorf, president and CEO of the Associated General Contractors of New York State. However, he adds that while these projects are greatly needed, they are focused in only one region of the state.
"There are hundreds of other bridges in the rest of the state that don't do the volume that the Tappan Zee Bridge does, but that are still vital to their communities" yet are not getting the necessary funding for repairs or replacements, Elmendorf says. There are also miles of highways that need funding for repairs.
"Long term, we need to find a different way to pay for this stuff," he adds.
