Chrissy is a proud, third-generation member of the Clarence Rotary Club. She is currently serving as Past-President of the Club and was the youngest President in the Club’s history. She has previously served as the Club’s Secretary, Treasurer, and President-Elect. She is also the Public Relations Chair for theU.S. region of Rotary District 7090.

Chrissy is a frequent guest speaker at various business workshops and local colleges, where she speaks about social media, marketing, brand building, and public relations. Balancing business, public service, and family is a generations-old family tradition. Chrissy’s grandfather, the late Pat Casilio, founded one of Western New York’s leading real estate and development firms and instilled the importance of giving back to the community. That spirit lives on at Casilio Companies, which is now led by Chrissy’s father, Pat Casilio, Junior, and is something Chrissy hopes to instill at Casilio Communications.
Through her work with Casilio Communications and her work in the community, Chrissy strives to maintain Pat, Sr’s high standards and balance of work, family, and philanthropy, making the Casilio name a trusted one in Western New York for over 50 years.
