Gary Brennen, PE, and Cyrus Izzo, PE, will replace Magliano as co-CEOs of the firm.

A founding member of the ACE Mentor program, a non-profit group that provides high school students with mentoring in the fields of architecture, construction, and engineering, Magliano serves as chairman of the ACE Mentor program of New York board of directors. Magliano has served on a number of committees for the Town of Eastchester, including the Town Zoning Board of Appeals.

Magliano authored numerous technical articles and served as an adjunct professor at the NYU School. Since 2006, Magliano has been a contributing member of the Consulting-Specifying Engineer editorial advisory board and wrote “Planning for Perfection,” an article about the development and maintenance of the “perfect” office building.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
