Manhattan College will honor Milo Riverso ’81, Ph.D., P.E., CMM, chief executive officer (CEO) and president of STV Group Inc. with the 2014 De La Salle medal at the college’s annual fundraising dinner on Jan. 23. The event will be held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.
Riverso received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Manhattan College, and has spent his more than 30-year career focusing on program, construction and design management. As president and CEO of STV, Riverso oversees the firm’s five operating divisions — buildings and facilities, construction management, energy services, international, and transportation and infrastructure.
Under his leadership, the firm has continued to grow and prosper, with a focus on expanding its presence in the construction management arena. STV is involved with major projects, such as the program management of One World Trade Center; construction management of the new Delta International Terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport; and design of the recently opened preparatory school at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, among others.
The De La Salle Medal Dinner honors people and corporations that embody the principles of excellence, leadership and service to society. Past honorees include Rudolph Giuliani ’65, former mayor of New York City; Anne Mulcahy, chairman, Xerox Corp.; Sy Sternberg, chairman and chief executive officer, New York Life Insurance Company; and Eugene McGrath ’63, former chairman and chief executive officer, Con Edison.
As Manhattan College’s top fundraising event, proceeds from the De La Salle Medal Dinner are applied to a variety of needs on campus, including student scholarships and financial aid.
