"Seasoned communications professional and manager, with over twenty years of experience in corporate/public affairs, relationship management and crisis communications. Published writer and author. Self-motivated team player who seeks to continue to grow in a dynamic organization..." That's Terrence McCauley, according to his LinkedIn Profile.

"Today is my first day as RIOC’s Public Information Officer," McCauley told The Daily in a Tuesday email. "I will be working with RIOC staff in our ongoing efforts to keep residents and stakeholders informed about the many exciting events and important capital projects taking place on Roosevelt Island."

Although Jessica Murray's done an outstanding job filling in for the departed Alonza Robertson since February, even improving communications somewhat with her straightforward style, she's been wearing two professional hats.

Murray needed the help, and this week, she got it.

Terrence McCauley arrives at 591 Main Street with excellent credentials. 

For 15 years, ending earlier this year, McCauley served as Manager, Government and Community Relations at Metro North, an MTA hot spot job with an agency frequently under fire from transit critics and media. Robertson, his predecessor and first in the position, struggled with the political aspects of the job, not having had extensive government experience before coming to Roosevelt Island.

But there's more to McCauley.

"A professional writer and marketing communications leader," according to his online bio, he's been a subject matter expert at numerous conferences. 

More intriguing is his second career line as a well-regarded novelist and short story writer. And, it's not just a hobby or sideline. This year saw his book Where The Bullets Fly become a finalist for the 2019 Western Writers of America’s Silver Spur Award.

We look forward to getting to know RIOC's newest critical hire and developing a communications channel that will well-serve the community.
