About the Speaker:

Cathy DeFrances-Vittorio, CPSM

It's not surprising that Cathy loves marketing and business development in the engineering, design, and construction industry. Putting a successful project together is like completing a complex puzzle, and after more than 25 years, no two puzzles have been alike. Over the course of her career, she has held various positions with property management firms, real estate developers, architects, engineers, construction companies, and ultimately landed at Fuss & O’Neill where her reputation for integrity and honesty, as well as her down-to-earth and collaborative manner, has been instrumental in her success.

Professional accomplishments include a lifetime achievement award from the Connecticut Society for Marketing Professionals (SMPS) where she has been a member since 2001 and a past-president (twice). She serves on the advisory board of the ACE Mentor Program in Hartford, is co-chair of the allied committee for the Connecticut AIA, the programs committee for Professional Women in Construction, and although her game is hardly noteworthy, the golf committee for Connecticut Building Congress.
