Masiello, Martucci & Associates Managing Partner Victor Martucci has decades of collective experience leveraging political know-how for political action – and the results our clients need.
Vic has built an impressive resume of experience over the last 26 years in both private business and government service. He began his career in government as an intern at the Buffalo District Office of Congressman Jack Kemp. In 1984, at the age of 24, Vic was hired by the director of Field Operations for Reagan/Bush New York, with the responsibility to travel to New York State’s 62 counties coordinating grassroot programs.
In 1985, Vic became a senior executive assistant to then Erie County Executive Edward J. Rutkowski. During his time in the Rutkowski Administration, he worked as a liaison to the New York State Association of Counties and its Medicaid Reform Task Force. He later joined the staff of state Senators Walter J. Floss and his successor, John B. Sheffer. Vic began his private business career in 1989 when he joined a local advertising and public relations firm. He worked with a diverse mix of clients and handled myriad client services including writing press releases and editorial pieces, scheduling and managing news conferences, writing and designing brochures, writing and producing radio and television commercials, writing campaign plans and campaign finance plans and advising clients on strategic planning.
In 1995, Vic began a 14-year career as vice president of The Marrano/Marc Equity Corporation, Upstate New York’s largest home builder. He developed strong, longstanding relationships with elected officials at every level of government, and has demonstrated the ability to be equally effective with both Democrats and Republicans. Vic developed an expertise in zoning and planning laws and regulations, as well as New York state’s complex SEQR requirements. He has successfully managed the development of condominium projects in Boston, Mass., and most recently, Hillsboro Beach, Fla. Vic also played an important role in writing and managing the company’s annual business plan and long-term strategic plan.
Governor George Pataki appointed Vic to serve on the Peace Bridge Authority (1999-2001), a bi-national public authority responsible for operating and maintaining one of the United States busiest border crossings. He became Vice Chairman of the Peace Bridge Authority shortly after his appointment, and was later elected Chairman. Vic was honored by Business First of Buffalo on its “40 Under 40″ list, recognizing Western New York’s distinguished leaders who are under the age of 40. He has also served as chairman of the Town of Tonawanda Republican Committee (1990-1995).
