Pierre Gedeon

Vice President of Diversity and Outreach

Pierre Gedeon is a child of two cultures who was born in Haiti but later moved to New York City at a young age.

While living in New York he attended elementary, junior high school, and high school where during his senior year he became involved in the revitalize Winthrop Street New Generation Block Association with its then president and members. With continued interest in community engagement and politics he became more active during his time at New York City College of Technology (where he obtained a bachelor of science in Computer Engineering Technology & Associate in Applied Science).

While in college he began to volunteer for an Assemblymember who represents an AD Brooklyn, while learning more about the political arena from her. The mentorship of the Assemblymember and her colleagues helped shed light in the political arena. Pierre went on to work (and still does) on many local political races including a few state assembly, city council, judicial, and mayoral races holding positions such as volunteer coordinator, data specialist and analyst, and others. During that time he has held the position of county committee and judicial delegate (and alternate) many times. And most recently he held a full time position at a New York State Assemblymember’s office as Director of Operations.
