Christy Cavataio

Principal | President | Chief Operating Officer

Christy is inspired by acts of kindness and taking the time to listen to others. Since becoming Cuningham’s President and COO in early 2020, Christy has reflected these values in all aspects of her leadership approach, helping us become an even more welcoming, inclusive firm. In her role, Christy oversees and closely collaborates with leaders in each of Cuningham’s studios and works alongside CEO Tim Dufault to guide the firm’s strategic vision. She was honored by Globe Street’s 2020 Women of Influence and was selected for her “reputation as a trailblazer and innovator in commercial design.”

“I love creating an environment that enables our design team to make magic occur. They literally start with nothing but ideas and words, and design a responsive and timeless solution that is built for the world to experience.”
