Luis Segarra is the Co-owner and CFO of The Crescent Companies, which he founded in Peekskill in 2001. Since its inception the company has grown to be one of the foremost consulting firms in New York overseeing contract issues in the construction industry related to Minority & Women Owned Business Programs (MWBE), Affirmative Action, Civil Rights, Integrity Monitoring and Prevailing Wage Contract Compliance.

Mr. Segarra is a member of the African American Chamber of Commerce and a Past President of the National Hispanic Business Group. The latter was founded in 1985 by a prominent group of Hispanic entrepreneurs to develop business opportunities for the Hispanic community. Currently he serves as the Secretary of the Peekskill Rotary Club. Without fanfare, Luis gives back to his community over and over by contributing his time and money behind the scenes whenever a deserving need comes to his attention.

Luis, the youngest of 12 children, was raised in The Bronx. He and his wife, Janet, have been Peekskill residents for the past 25 years. Their two children and Granddaughter also reside in the City.

I am a firm believer that everyone should be afforded the most basic needs without it being a burden on them or their way of living. That Community involvement in all issues should be first and foremost. That with great fiscal responsibility and management this city is destined for greatness, fairness, opportunity for all, and prosperity. That every voice is the echo of positive change, and must be heard. I believe that all Peekskill Residents regardless of Race, Gender, Nationality, or Preferences are the only special interest in this city that matter.
