Karen Franz Chief Executive Officer of AKRF, Inc.

Karen Franz is the Chief Executive Officer of AKRF, Inc., a premier consulting firm based in New York City with over 350 planners, engineers, and scientists serving the needs of real estate, transportation, water, and energy clients. She previously directed the firm's Engineering Department, leading major NYC initiatives to bring coastal resiliency and sustainable infrastructure to local communities.

Putting her dedication and skills to work, Karen has led AKRF in much of its infrastructure planning and design work, which includes East Side Coastal Resiliency, NYCDEP’s Green Infrastructure Program, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Governors Island, and the Cornell Tech Applied Sciences Campus. Karen not only understands what is required technically to complete a project, but believes teamwork is the driving force behind positive change and success. She is truly a motivator and mentor to all around her.

Karen's passion for transforming the local environment stems from her New Jersey roots, where she obtained her B.S. in Bio-Environmental Engineering from Rutgers University. She is a licensed Professional Engineer in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, and a LEED Accredited Professional. With 20+ years as a New Yorker, Karen resides on the Upper West Side with her partner and their 10-year-old daughter.
