Samara Barend
Strategic Development Director for Public-Private Partnerships and Alternative Delivery for AECOM
Samara Barend is the Strategic Development Director for Public-Private Partnerships and Alternative Delivery for AECOM. Prior to her position at AECOM, Samara Barend served as Executive Director of Governor Paterson's Commission on State Asset Maximization. The SAM Commission, created from a gubernatorial Executive Order in 2008, was charged with exploring public-private opportunities in New York State. The Commission released a preliminary report in 2008 and a final report in June 2009 which identified 26 specific public-private opportunities and proposed a transparent process for undertaking those ventures through the creation of a State Asset Maximization Board.
Ms. Barend has served as Vice President and Government Affairs Director for STV, and was responsible for overseeing, and often leading, industry-wide policy initiatives. In 2004, she ran as the Democratic candidate in New York's 29th U.S. Congressional district race, holding her opponent to 50.8% of the vote and becoming one of the youngest women to run for federal office. She has also worked as the Statewide Neighborhood Program Director for Hillary Clinton's U.S. Senate campaign and as Upstate Director for the New York Democratic State Committee. Further, from 1996-2000 Ms. Barend spearheaded the successful effort to convert New York State's Route 17 into Interstate 86. This interstate campaign resulted in the passage of the Interstate 86 Act, a bill which she drafted for Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan that was included in the 1998 Federal Transportation Reauthorization. Ms. Barend graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and received her Master's Degree in Public Policy at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government.
