Meet Cindy Bambini

Cindy Bambini is the Business Development Leader for CannonDesign, where she has worked for the last three years. CannonDesign is a global firm that specializes in the design of transformational places, plans and strategies that improve life. Recent, local examples of CannonDesign’s project work include Square’s new headquarters in the old St. Louis Post-Dispatch building downtown, BJC HealthCare’s new inpatient tower on the site of the former Queeny Tower and I-64 and Kingshighway and Mercy Hospital’s Multidisciplinary Building at the corner of Ballas and Conway in St. Louis County.

As a Business Development Leader, Cindy is responsible for cultivating relationships that bring new work into CannonDesign, as well as creating the relationship between CannonDesign and the St. Louis community. Cindy loves building new relationships, learning what makes people tick, and connecting people with others who can help them achieve their goals. Connection is at the core of everything she does—connecting people and organizations to the resources that they need to succeed. She attributes networking and connections to many of her successes in her career, as well as the successes of the people that she works with.

Diversity and inclusion are very important to Cindy. In fact, Cindy created an entirely new platform to promote diversity and inclusion for CannonDesign pursuit teams: The Inclusive Partnership Program (IPP). The IPP is based on the idea that diverse teams lead to better design and is focused on the relationship building and partnering necessary to help organizations and the people and communities they serve flourish.

Cindy is a mother of four and enjoys time with her children, especially at their cabin in Ste Genevieve County. She’s passionate about sustainability and practices an eco-friendly lifestyle. She is a certified Pilates instructor and teaches classes weekly.

She recommends Ted Lasso, a brilliantly crafted comedy with lessons in leadership and kindness throughout.
