Scheiner is H2M’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. A longtime resident of Commack, he joined the firm in 1986 and was tasked with starting its architectural division, which now employs more than 50 architects. He previously served as the Director of Community Development and Planning for the Town of Riverhead and was ultimately appointed Deputy Supervisor, overseeing the Town’s Building and Recreation departments as well as the water and sewer districts.
Throughout his career, Scheiner has served his community in a variety of ways and has held numerous leadership roles. As Vice Chairman of the Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce, he serves on its Executive, Government Relations, Green/Sustainable, and Huntington Village Parking Improvements committees. He is a former Chair of the Leadership Huntington Foundation and is currently a member of its President’s Advisory Committee. In addition, he is a board member for Vision Long Island and the Community Development Corporation of Long Island.
A former Rotarian in both Riverhead and Huntington, Scheiner was presented with the Paul Harris Fellowship by the Huntington Station Rotary. He is an active member of several business organizations, including the Hauppauge Industrial Association, the Long Island Association, and Action Long Island. Closer to home, he served as President of the Hamlet Homeowner’s Association from 1993 through 2009.
“It’s been a privilege to spend my career serving the people of Huntington and contributing to our community’s quality of life,” said Scheiner. “I’m honored to have earned this distinction.”
The John Klaber Memorial Award is awarded by the Huntington Chamber in recognition of an individual’s devotion to the community. It is presented to a citizen, at least 60 years of age, who has a record of exceptional voluntary service to the community for 15 years or more and has held key leadership roles with diversified town-wide organizations.
Scheiner will receive the award during a November 13th reception at the Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum.
