Anne Trenkle serves as the Executive Director of New York Helmets to Hardhats. Anne began her career in the industry working for the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York. She joined the National Helmets to Hardhats Program as New York State Director in July of 2003.
Anne’s initial undertaking was focused on developing innovative methods of incorporating the Helmets to Hardhats Program into apprenticeship programs throughout New York, including implementing direct entry for returning veterans as well as establishing a 20% veteran population in all participating NYS apprenticeship programs. In the Fall of 2013, Anne achieved a long time goal of establishing New York City Helmets to Hardhats, Inc., an independent 501c3 Labor-Management Initiative, dedicated to assisting the transition of a diverse NYC Veteran population into careers in the NYC union construction industry. Anne has since built a New York team to expand those services across the state of New York.
Anne is a native New Yorker, currently living in Rockland County, NY.
