NICHOLAS A. PANUZIO is the Senior Partner of Panuzio & Giordano Public Affairs, LLC.  Mr. Panuzio brings to the Company over thirty five years of Washington and Connecticut political and corporate experience.  Mr. Panuzio has a reputation for providing clients strategic counsel that not only considers the dynamics of the public policy issue, but also the political ramifications of any action that will be taken.

Since founding Panuzio & Giordano Public Affairs with partner David Giordano in 2003, Mr. Panuzio has worked with a wide variety of clients including private developers, public sector clients, and trade associations on a wide range of issues including transportation funding, telecommunications, financial services and legislation.  He has provided strategic planning on urban issues to several Mayors, commissions, and private sector corporations on dealing with the Federal government and the State of Connecticut.

From 1981 to 1996, Mr. Panuzio was the Chairman and CEO of Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly Public Affairs Company, one of the premier public affairs firms in the nation and one of the leading political firms in Washington, D. C.   During that time, Mr. Panuzio served as an advisor to President Ronald W. Reagan and President George H. W. Bush on urban affairs, and served on several political committees during that period.

Mr. Panuzio was the founder and manager of The Management Link and Panuzio Business Strategies.  Mr. Panuzio foresaw a major and continuing shift in power from the Federal government to state and local governments.  To assist companies, associations, governmental entities, and individuals in meeting the challenges of this impact, he created and developed The Management Link, a national link of companies whose goal was to develop business for a diverse client base.

Mr. Panuzio came to Washington after being appointed Deputy Administrator of the General Services Administration and Commissioner of Public Buildings by President Gerald R. Ford.  He was responsible for construction, leasing, management and protection of all federal buildings. As United States Commissioner of Public Buildings, he was responsible for overseeing the national program for the United States General Services Administration (GSA) including the utilization and re-utilization of government-owned real property as well as the disposal of excess properties.  He was also responsible for the design and construction of federal facilities, and for all major facility repair and alteration programs; property management, safety and security; and leasing and lease administration.

In 1971, Mr. Panuzio was the first Republican elected Mayor of Bridgeport in forty four years and served two terms.  He was a candidate for Governor of Connecticut in 1974 and served in the Connecticut Legislature.

Mr. Panuzio has received two Honorary Doctorate degrees in Law and Humane Letters, and served as an administrator and professor at the University of Bridgeport.
