Frank developed an uncanny ability to facilitate these public-private partnerships, forging enduring relationships rooted in finding effective solutions to complicated issues.


Over the course of his career in government, banking and law, Frank Carone began to see a problem few fully grasped. Government and business needed to work together a lot, but that wasn’t something that happened naturally.

When Frank was named chief of staff to Mayor Eric Adams, he implemented this strategy at City Hall, bringing together unlikely allies to get things done and managing several legacy projects that indelibly transformed the city.

These experiences cohered into a practical philosophy: When you help others achieve their goals, they succeed—and you do too. This led Frank to co-author the book Everyone Wins!, which dives into the core principles of his approach.
