Mini Bio (1)
Although the walls and shelves of Fred Cerullo's home are lined with hundreds of awards, commendations and certificates of achievement, there still remain three grand trophies out there that hopefully will someday bear his name. They are the Emmy, the Tony and, of course, the Oscar.
Cerullo, one of the most successful, and high profile chief executives on the New York City political and business scene, usually spends his rare spare time pursuing a theatrical acting career, as if he didn't have enough on his plate as things stand. Sharing the TV,legit and film sound stages with such stellar names as Shirley MacLaine, Liza Minelli, Susan Lucci, Keifer Sutherland, Eartha Kitt, Brooke Shields and numerous others, Cerullo gradual progression in trodding the boards stands in unique contrast to his daily bread-and-butter responsibilities as President/CEO of the Grand Central Partnership and as an active Commissioner of the New York City Planning Commission.
While holding down key roles in productions of works by Neil Simon (Rumors, Laughter on the 23rd Floor, California Suite), Wendy Wasserstein (An American Daughter),and Robin Cook (NBC's Invasion), Cerullo has served as a New York City Councilman and Commissioner of both the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs and the NYC Department of Finance, as well as a Board Member of many non-profit organizations. A member of the Bar in New York, New Jersey, California and Washington, DC, Cerullo is constantly striving to make his list of theatrical credits as long and esteemed as his affiliations with countless community-based and charitable organizations in the Greater New York area.
Indeed, his present lifestyle could form the basis for a realistic and adventurous, yet comic, screenplay about a successful chief executive who, while on a first name basis with Presidents, Governors, Mayors and local business leaders, is constantly juggling his schedule to accomodate his presence at both an important Board of Directors meeting and at a Block-Dress-Tape day on a hit daytime drama.
