Samara Barend, senior VP and public private partnership - PPP- development director with AECOM Capital, called her work on obtaining private investment in public infrastructure, "not a job, but a passion. PPPs, she noted, are hugely efficient and cost-effective and capable of project delivery in a fraction of the time and cost. The Goethals Bridge modernization, for example, will produce a savings of $150M.

"Changes at the federal level would speed financing to open the doors for private investment and create a flowing economy," said Barend.
Though traditional funding is still needed, she urged all to "put your collective influence together to make PPPs a reality in NY."

Samara Barend - Class of 1995

One of the youngest women to run for Congress, Samara Barend received the democratic nomination for New York State's 29th District in 2004. Just a year out of high school she worked as an aide to NYS Senator Moynihan, and while in college she formed the I-86 Coalition, which mobilized support to redesignate Route 17 as Interstate 86.
In the area of community support, Ms. Barend founded and directed the non-profit organization Minds of Steel in 2002 with the goal of promoting healthy habits to alleviate the effects of mental illness in children. Most recently she created and is leading a national nonprofit coalition, the Performance-based Building Coalition, which is focused on advancing the delivery of public/private partnerships (PPPs) for public buildings. Currently, Ms Barend is senior vice president and director of public/private partnerships at AECOM Capital.
