Cuomo targets foreign investment in 2014 By JohN GoLDeN jgolden@westfairinc.com

SPECIAL REPORT: HOSPITALITY • 11

January 13, 2014 | VOL. 50, No. 2

I

n his fourth State of the State Address in Albany, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo outlined a broad agenda that builds on the achievements of his first three years in office and includes a legislative package that would provide more than $2 billion in tax relief to New

York businesses and residents. The governor announced the launch this year of “Global NY,” an effort to attract international investment, grow exports and create jobs upstate using his Start-Up NY program, a plan launched last year to build partnerships between business and academia by offering eligible companies taxfree space on or around state and private college campuses.

The state’s 10 regional economic development councils, created by Cuomo in his first year in office, this year will look to incorporate global marketing and export strategies in their economic development plans as they compete in a fourth round of state funding. The governor said he would host a Global NY Summit on World Trade and Investment this year Cuomo, page 6

Not just green, certifiably green By CRystaL KaNG ckang@westfairinc.com

The WesTChesTer green business Challenge, a partnership that helps businesses move toward a path of environmental sustainability, plans to create a green business certification program. The pilot program, which launches Jan. 28,

invites all businesses to network with other greenminded companies, take advantage of its resources and guidelines that help companies achieve a higher level of environmental sustainability and attend webinars and training sessions. “There are companies out there that are already incorporating environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility into their core business,” said Green, page 6

Foreclosure filings in Westchester County by mortgage lenders and servicers rose nearly 49 percent in 2013 from the previous year and court judgments against defaulting homeowners rose 77 percent last year from 2012, as banks began clearing a backlog of sold and resold mortgage loans dating from the housing market boom. The Westchester County Clerk’s office reported 2,694 foreclosure actions started in 2012, up from 1,813 in 2012. The lenders’ filings last year were the highest since 2009, when 3,123 foreclosure actions were started in the Great Recession. The 369 foreclosure judgments entered in the state Supreme Court in Westchester County last year were the highest in three years, but well below the numbers of defaulting homeowners who lost their homes to lenders from 2006 to 2010, according to county clerk records. Foreclosure judgments in the county peaked at 1,034 in 2008. Attorneys and real estate brokers have said they expect the surge in filings to continue in 2014 and that it could be another two to three years before the backlog of mortgage loans in default is cleared. Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni noted that stricter mortgage financing rules take effect this month “which will no doubt curb foreclosures down the road. But it is hard to predict the immediate impact these rules will have on the Westchester housing market and the current foreclosure burden.”

Weather puts chill on retail sales Snow slows in-store holiday shopping

By CRystaL KaNG ckang@westfairinc.com

A

rctic temperatures limited holiday foot traffic in Westchester’s shopping districts, while a snowstorm served as icing on the cake, marooning potential lastminute shoppers in their homes. Claudia Baker, owner of All Paws Gourmet Pet Boutique in Rye, said she relied on some old, out-of-town visitors to counterbalance the cool pace of customers on Purchase Street, usually one of the county’s premier shopping destinations. Part of the problem may have been that while some were visiting Westchester, many locals were visiting elsewhere. “We have people visiting family who always stop in every year when they come to town,” said Baker, who has run the store for the past seven years. “But other than that, our regular customers are just away.” Although the weather reduced the pet shop’s holiday foot traffic, it also boosted interest in some winter items. That business could carry over after more snow and the socalled polar vortex this month. “What I’m selling now are the booties that protect dogs’ paws from rock salt and freeze burns while keeping their paws warm,” Baker said. “Given the way the temperature has been so far, these are really crucial for them.” Across the nation, retail sales showed a 2.3 percent growth during the holiday shopping season period between Nov. 1 and Dec. 24, 2013 compared with 2012, according to MasterCard Advisors, the professional services arm of MasterCard Worldwide Inc. that provides consumer-spending data based on credit card transactions. A recent report released by MasterCard SpendingPulse provided market data by tracking customer spending during the holidays on apparel, electronics, jewelry, luxury and home furniture and furnishing categories. Jewelry saw the biggest increase in sales year to year. However, small jewelry store owners in Westchester say their experiences don’t mesh with the statistics.

on Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains, said small jewelry stores are hurting as more consumers shop online. According to MasterCard’s SpendingPulse, e-commerce sales rose by double digits. Soares said the holiday weather paired with a lack of an online presence for his store hurt his revenue. John Silver, an employee at Cressida Jewelers, said the Mamaroneck Avenue corridor near the city center and a strip of restaurants and bars does not regularly attract luxury-goods customers. “Business is not too good for jewelry stores on this avenue,” Silver said. “The only people who come here are our regulars who come for the holidays…But this street is not the place people come to shop.” During the last three years, Cressida has bought gold from customers and then melted jewelry down for resale. The recent holiday didn’t see a lot of action in the gold exchange because of the plummeting price of metal, Smith said. Nationwide, the apparel sector saw slight growth during the holidays, while luxury and electronics remained flat, according to the MasterCard SpendingPulse. A separate analysis by MasterCard Advisors showed that large retailers performed better than smaller retailers because of increased sales and pro-

motions that started early in the holiday season. Robert Bernstein, owner of Mount Kisco Sports at 7 S. Moger Ave., said his business “could’ve been better for the holidays.” Not only did the snow keep Bernstein’s store closed for four days during the holiday rush, but he said foot traffic is scarce due to a number of empty storefronts, businesses turning over and a difficult parking situation. Holiday shoppers in his store would often run out of the store due to expiring meters. “It’s so depressing and nasty when they get a ticket,” Bernstein said. Phillip Sohn, owner of Thomson’s Art Supply Inc. on Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains, said the Christmas shopping season was slower in 2013 than 2012 because of the weather. Sohn’s father, Young Sohn, who handed down the business to his son

three years ago, said he was optimistic business will pick up with increased demand from schools reopening after winter break. Thomson’s, a retail remnant of the city’s downtown prior to its influx of bars and banks, relies on architects, engineers, designers and art students to keep them open. Thomson’s provides specialized services: customized glass cuts, dry mounts and frames. That uptick in business is usually expected in January and February, the Sohns said. But Silver, the employee at Cressida, was doubtful that the next big jewelry holiday, Valentine’s Day, would fare much better than 2013’s holiday season. “It’s more about flowers and chocolates than rings and necklaces for couples,” Silver said. “And dads are getting their daughters iPads and iPhones instead of sterling silver necklaces.”

Mercy College names new president

By JohN GoLDeN jgolden@westfairinc.com

A

Tennessee state university president and former law professor and litigator has been named the 12th president of Mercy College. Timothy L. Hall, president of Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tenn., will assume duties on the Dobbs Ferry campus May 13, Mercy College officials recently announced. He will replace Concetta M. Stewart, the college’s interim president, who will return to her position as provost and vice president of academic affairs. Stewart took over interim duties last July after Kimberly R. Cline resigned as Mercy president to become the first female president of Long Island University. Edward B. Dunn, the former Mercy College board chairman who co-chaired the college’s presidential search committee, called Hall’s “passion for student and faculty success” a hallmark of his professional career. Austin Peay under his leadership had significant increases in enrollment and funding and was named one of the Great Colleges to Work For

in 2012 and 2013 by The Chronicle of Higher Education. Hall previously was associate provost at the University of Mississippi and executive director of a capital campaign to raise $50 million for a new law school facility there. He was a professor at the University of Mississippi School of Law and visiting professor at the University of Texas School of Law, as well as a private-practice litigation associate and a judicial clerk to a U.S. Court of Appeals judge. During his presidency, Austin Peay gained national attention for Degree Compass, a software program that uses predictive analytics to inform students and their faculty advisors about courses in which they are most likely to be successful. Hall in October testified before a U.S. Senate committee about steps the university has taken to help more students succeed. “Mercy College’s mission and commitment to student success will remain a priority for me,” Hall said in the announcement. “I look forward to collaborating with faculty, staff and students to continue the college’s increasing stature and strength.”

kaplowitz elected county board chairman By MaRK LUNGaRieLLo mlungariello@westfairinc.com

M

ichael Kaplowitz, a Somers Democrat, has been elected chairman of the Westchester County Board of Legislators in a 15-2 vote. Kaplowitz, the sole nominee, had the backing of a coalition majority made up of Yonkers Democrat Virginia Perez and the seven Republicans on the board. But most board Democrats also supported his leadership, with the only no votes coming from former Chairman Ken Jenkins of Yonkers, and Greenburgh’s Alfreda Williams, a failed nominee for vice chairwoman. Kaplowitz said the board would focus on a cooperative spirit. “That’s a very high ideal because we’re not going to agree on every issue,” he said after being sworn in Jan. 6. “That’s not who we are as people.” Since 1998, Kaplowitz has represented District 4, which encompasses parts of Somers, Yorktown and New Castle. He told legislators it was a “gift” to be named chairman. “Whether it’s your first term or it’s your nth term, please always remember, as of course you always will, that we are sent here

to be a representative, to do our people’s bidding,” he said. New Rochelle Republican Jim Maisano became vice chairman in a much tighter 9-8 vote, with no Democrats outside of the coalition members supporting his candidacy. Maisano, like Kaplowitz, came into office as a member of the so-called “Class of

1998” and has represented District 11 which includes part of New Rochelle and Pelham. Maisano said the board was committed to legislative oversight of the county executive, Robert P. Astorino, a Republican who is exploring a gubernatorial run this year. “And we look forward to working with all legislators together to make sure that we’re

a board of legislators that works together to write a check and balance on the county executive,” he said. That came after some criticisms from former chairman Jenkins, who in a letter to north county Democrats opposing the coalition leadership said Kaplowitz was “carrying Astorino’s water” during negotiations for the 2013 budget. Jenkins’ four years as chairman were marked by static between the board’s Democratic majority and the county executive, leading to Jenkins suing Astorino over what Jenkins felt were procedural decisions that overstepped the authority of the executive branch. Jenkins sought to run as the Democratic candidate for county executive against Astorino last year, but lost the nomination to New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson. Astorino defeated Bramson in November, grabbing 56 percent of the total vote. The Jan. 6 meeting of the board was the first for the new two-year legislative term, at which two new legislators joined the 17-member board for the first time. Rye’s Catherine Parker and White Plains’ Benjamin Boykin II, both Democrats, were sworn in, replacing Judy Myers and William Ryan, respectively. Both retiring legislators decided not to seek re-election in 2013.

union oks strike at indian point By MaRK LUNGaRieLLo mlungariello@westfairinc.com

A

union that represents 400 workers at Indian Point Energy Center voted to allow a strike if a new labor deal isn’t reached by Jan. 17, when the union’s current contract expires. Utility Workers Union of America Local 1-2 announced that its members, which include 400 employees at the Buchanan nuclear facility, agreed to authorize a strike, if necessary, against Entergy Corp, which owns Indian Point. Union members were scheduled to hold a “practice picket” Jan. 9 on Broadway and Bleakly Avenue, in front of the plant.

“We are continuing negotiations and working hard to reach an agreement that will satisfy all parties.”

— Jerry Nappi

“A strike authorization is a powerful tool to have when we enter talks with any employer and Entergy is no different,” said James Slevin, president of Local 1-2. “Entergy is a large, profitable corporation and we look forward to productive discussions. But make no mistake; our members want a fair share of the fruits of their labor, nothing more, nothing less.” Entergy remains optimistic that a potential strike could be averted based on an email to the Business Journal from Jerry Nappi, a spokesman for Indian Point. “We respect the vote that was taken and recognize that is only an authorization to strike, not a call to strike,” Nappi said. “We are continuing negotiations and working hard to reach an agreement that will satisfy all parties.” New Orleans-based Entergy Corp., which owns Indian Point, is looking to relicense the plant’s dual reactors for another 20 years amid opposition from environmental groups and politicians including Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The current relicensing is the lengthiest process of its kind in U.S. history and no plant in history has closed due to an expiring license. Supporters have noted that Indian Point employs roughly 1,600 in total and produces 25 percent of electricity consumed in New York City and Westchester County. The Business Council of Westchester, of which

Entergy is a member, conducted a study in 2012 that said closing the power plant would drain $11.5 billion from the local economy, cause electric rates to jump 6.3 percent, increase the likelihood of blackouts by 280 percent and cause an uptick in carbon emissions from a shift to other forms of power. The power plant first went into operation in 1962. Entergy, a national company with annual revenues of more than $10 billion, bought Indian Point unit 2 from Con Edison in 2001, one year after it purchased unit 3 from the New York Power Authority. Unit 2’s permit expired last year, but has been extended until the NRC decides whether or not to relicense the reactor. Unit 3’s permit expires in December 2015. Indian Point 1 is no longer in use.

Cuomo ­— From page 1

to reach foreign investors and create a peer learning network among local and regional leaders. Cuomo’s tax relief proposal includes several hundred million dollars in estimated cumulative savings for the state’s business sector. The governor proposed to merge the bank tax into the corporate franchise tax and reduce that tax on corporations from 7.1 percent to 6.5 percent, the lowest rate in 46 years, at an estimated savings of $346 million annually for businesses. For manufacturers, Cuomo proposed a refundable credit against corporate and personal income taxes equal to 20 percent of a company’s annual real property taxes. The credit would provide $136 million in tax relief to the sector and stimulate growth among manufacturers currently operating in the state while attracting new businesses to upstate regions and metropolitan New York, he said. He further proposed to eliminate the corporate income tax rate for upstate manufacturers, saving an additional $25 million in tax payments for those businesses. Cuomo wants legislators to immediately eliminate the 2 percent temporary utility assessment levied on commercial utility bills for industries and accelerate the assessment’s phase-out for other customers. The measure would save businesses and residents $600 million on energy bills over the next three years, he said. For residents, the governor proposed state tax rebates to homeowners to freeze their property tax levels for two years. The first-year rebates would be available only to

residents of a taxing jurisdiction that stays within the state’s 2 percent property tax cap. In the second year, rebates would be provided only to homeowners in municipalities that stay within the cap on annual property tax increases and also agree to implement a shared services or administrative consolidation plan with other taxing authorities. Cuomo said the rebate program when fully implemented would provide nearly $1 billion in relief with an average benefit of about $350 for each of nearly 2.8 million homeowners. The current average residential property tax bill statewide is $5,040, the highest in the nation, he said. Legislators also will be asked to approve a property tax “circuit breaker” measure for low- and middle-income taxpayers that would provide refundable tax credits when those taxpayers’ real property tax rate relative to income exceeds their income tax rate. Households earning up to $200,000 and within municipalities that adhere to the 2 percent property tax cap would be eligible for the benefit. The governor’s proposal also calls for more than $400 million in refundable personal income tax credits for 2.6 million renters with annual incomes below $100,000 and reforms to the New York estate tax that would exempt nearly 90 percent of all estates from the tax. Cuomo said the tax relief measures would be funded by an expected $2 billion state budget surplus. Cuomo in his address laid out several other proposals to spur business growth and investment in the state. They include: • Creating a joint executive-legislative commission to identify ways to reduce regulatory barriers to business. • A new Upstate-Downstate Food-toTable Agriculture Summit this year to con-

nect the state’s agriculture industry to downstate consumers and markets. • Appointing a Gaming Facility Location Board to select developers bidding to build casino resorts in the Catskills and other upstate areas. • Build on the number of minority- and women-owned business enterprises in state contracting by adding 2,000 MWBE-certified firms in 2014. • Establish a 5 percent goal in the awarding of state contracts to small businesses owned by military veterans disabled in service. The governor also will convene a Veterans and Military Families Summit to address issues unique to those New Yorkers. Westchester County Association President William M. Mooney Jr. in a statement said the governor’s effort to reduce local government spending by limiting the proposed two-year freeze on residential property taxes to municipalities that stay within the tax cap and agree to cut costs by consolidating or sharing services with other municipalities is “a good thing” but not enough without relief from unfunded state mandates for local governments. Unfunded mandates, such as pensions and health care coverage for public employees, are “the real driver of property tax increases,” he said. “Without mandate relief, the governor’s property tax proposal can only go so far.” Mooney said Cuomo’s Global NY initiative, which will be led by former Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack and overseen by Empire State Development, should support the growth of foreign trade in Westchester as well as upstate. The governor in his address expressed his hope that foreign offices will take root in economically distressed upstate communities. “We like much of what Gov. Cuomo has

put on his agenda, and we will actively support the initiatives that hold the most promise for Westchester and our region,” Mooney said. Marsha Gordon, president and CEO of The Business Council of Westchester, in a statement said she is encouraged by the governor’s efforts to make New York more business-friendly by cutting taxes, investing in workforce development – particularly his proposals for women and minority-owned businesses, disabled veterans and youth – and for his continued work with the regional economic development councils. “The Business Council supports serious efforts to reduce the tax burden on New York businesses and property owners and stands ready to work with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and state lawmakers on this very important priority,” Gordon said. “Whether it’s lowering corporate, income, estate, property and energy taxes, reducing regulatory barriers on businesses, addressing state-mandated costs on local governments, modernizing our infrastructure or investing in innovative businesses, achieving these goals must be a priority in the state Capitol so that businesses all across New York can expand, thrive and succeed in the years to come.” Heather C. Briccetti, president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State Inc., in a statement called Cuomo’s tax relief proposal “big news for the state’s economy, especially upstate, as this package will provide broad-based business tax relief and support key business sectors across New York.” “The importance of the tax relief component for manufacturers cannot be overstated,” she said. The loss of manufacturing jobs is one of the main reasons the upstate economy has struggled. This is an important step in the right direction for upstate, and New York as a whole.”

Inc., a supplier of virgin and recycled aggregate, asphalt products and brownfield fill for the construction industry, joined the pilot program with the intent of increasing its visibility a leader in green business practices. The company has been reusing its asphalt material and has its own recycling center in Elmsford. Although Thalle feels its efforts to go green have gone unnoticed, the company hopes its certification will spark conversations in other asphalt production companies about ways to be more environmentally conscious. Glenn Pacchiana, CEO and president of Thalle, said he is aware of the increasingly rigorous environmental standards the state is setting on commercial industries that pollute. He said he wants to keep his company ahead of the curve, especially at a time when companies run the risk of being shut down for violating environmental codes. “We now burn waste oil to heat our plants,” Pacchiana said about the company’s

asphalt plant and quarry in Fishkill. “We also have large equipment loaders, excavators, trucks and crushing equipment. They all burn a lot of fuel, so we try to get the most fuel-efficient equipment out there. It pays to buy new equipment instead of hanging onto the old stuff that’s polluting the air.” Lisa Moir, who opened The Blue Pig Ice Cream in 2010, was passionate about sustainability from the very beginning. She threw out the Styrofoam cups and plastic spoons and instead brought out paper cups and compostable spoons made of corn fiber. Not only does she serve her products with eco-friendly tools, but the ice cream store in Croton-onHudson makes homegrown products from the store’s rooftop garden and local farms. The maple syrup topping comes from White Oak Farm in Yorktown Heights, the honey from Croton beekeepers, the eggs from chickens on Moir’s own farm, and the milk from Hudson Valley Fresh, a local dairy co-op

in Dutchess County. With the green business certification, Moir plans to take her business to the next level. She has already reduced her electricity bill by turning off the air conditioning in the summer and using a drip irrigation system to conserve water. But she wants to do more. “We’re looking into using alternative energy sources like solar,” she said. Other companies are looking into similar practices. Dennis Noskin, principal of Dennis Noskin Architects L.L.C. in Tarrytown, is participating in the green business certification pilot program with plans to install solar panels on the roof of his company’s building at 100 White Plains Road. “We’re lucky our building has a 600-square-foot flat roof,” Noskin said. “We’re working with Dani to install photovoltaic solar panels that feed into our electricity and diminish the cost on our electric bills. It’s a long-term goal we hope to get done in 2014.”


Westchester job market posts strong December By David Lewis

D

ecember was a strong month for the Westchester County job market, recording a 17 percent increase in job posting activity vs. November, across multiple industries and towns. That followed a month that showed a 5 percent increase in job market activity. This news follows national reports that indicated a stronger than expected level of hiring for December, all of which leads the county in a positive direction to start 2014. Some key items of note regarding December: • White Plains continues to show itself as the hub of job market activity, followed by Yonkers and Tarrytown. • The industries most actively hiring this past month were retail, services and health care. • Top job categories were sales, health services and accounting. A closer look at the data suggests no real surprises here, with retail’s typical December surge tied to the holiday season, along with ongoing sustained strength in the services and health care sectors. The national unemployment figures released in early January suggest a continued level of modest improvement and therefore somewhat of a trend toward recovery. Westchester continues to demonstrate strength and cause for optimism as we enter January, which historically has been a strong month for county employ-

ment activity. So what should we expect in 2014? To start, this is an election year for the governor’s office, which suggests that any major changes or initiatives are likely to not arrive until 2015. That being said the state has recently embarked on an aggressive public marketing campaign to lure businesses to New York from out of state, as well as promote new business development, by offering huge tax incentives for up to 10 years. Pair that with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s plans to announce a program of tax cuts aimed at property and business-related taxes and optimism for the market can and likely will flow. With no clear opponent on the horizon, the usual distraction an election year holds for an incumbent may in fact be far less of an issue this year. In short, the area seems poised to continue to show modest to more sustainable gains into the first quarter of 2014, benefiting perhaps from the job market activity levels in the tech sector in NYC and anticipated spillover of businesses looking for less expensive rents and talent into the county overall. Established area businesses look to also continue on the slow and steady growth path, leading to greater employment activity. Time will tell.

Funeral home pays penalty for practices A Harrison funeral home owner will pay a $32,000 civil penalty to settle federal charges of unfair and deceptive practices when providing funeral services. Preet Bharara, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, said the consent decree approved by a federal judge in White Plains Jan. 2 settles a complaint brought in May 2012 against Harrison Funeral Home Inc. and its owner and president John Balsamo. The complaint alleged the defendants violated the Federal Trade Commission’s rule regulating funeral industry practices by failing to provide required price lists on four occasions to persons inquiring about funeral services.

Although the funeral home and Balsamo were given the option of enrolling in a voluntary program to prevent future violations, they failed to enroll employees in the program’s required training and continued to violate the FTC rule, according to the U.S. attorney’s office. Balsamo and the corporation in the consent decree admitted it violated the funeral rule. In addition to the financial penalty, the consent order requires the defendants to submit compliance notices to the FTC for the next 20 years, maintain certain records and submit to compliance reviews. – John Golden

An imbalanced workload can cost you profits We have a real imbalance between the workload carried by junior and senior people. Our senior people are doing too much work, carrying too much of the workload, which is costing us profits. Our junior people are not stepping up to the plate enough to take on additional work and challenges, which is also costing us profits and opportunity. Not sure how to get this straightened out.

Thought of the day: Talk with managers about their goals and responsibilities. Check to see who needs management training. Check on employee motivation. Look at your service delivery model. Make sure managers have their goals in front of them all the time. Ask them to check their list of completed tasks against their goal list – is there a match, or are they spending time on things that don’t lead to goal accomplishment. Make sure key performance indicators (KPI) are in place for each depart-

ment. Get everyone aligned around the outcomes. When it comes to meeting or beating KPIs make sure people know their roles and are ready to deliver at or above standard. Check on how well managers delegate work. Do they need help training and coaching people under them? If managers keep trying to do the work instead of delegating, they become barriers to progress. Analyze department performance. Ask to see how tasks are organized. Look for suggestions on how reorganizing might lead to increases in productivity. Model systems based on the most productive employees. Check on workload vs. skill balancing. Do you have enough of the right kinds of skills for the work on hand? Sometimes the mix of work shifts and employees who used to be essential are now redundant. Find out if redundant employees are willing to retrain for more essential tasks, otherwise show them the door. Make it clear that people have to constantly learn and grow. Look into what drives employee behavior. Some people come to the table self-

driven. Others require outside motivators. Some people could self motivate, but they first need to understand how their actions fit into the company’s bigger picture. Work through motivation issues by asking each person what is their reason for doing something. Get people to think about how personal and business goals are aligned. Focusing on quality and making work as routine as possible will help to reduce re-dos, which can be real budget killers. When errors do happen, use them as teaching opportunities. Show people who were involved what went wrong and brainstorm, then document, the best solution to use in similar situations in the future. Budget time for general training in order to insure employees at each level in the organization are prepared to handle their work assignments. Be on the lookout for ways to streamline work. Fewer steps may translate into fewer errors. Ask: • Is our service delivery model efficient, profitable and well documented so that everyone can follow along? Check on the hours worked by each level of staff. • Are some people working harder than others? • Is there a process for moving simpler parts of a job down to a less skilled, lower level? Rather than assigning a job start-tofinish to one person, break it into essential elements. Assign primary do-ers or supplemental assistance to move work along at

the fastest rate and lowest possible cost. Look for early warning signs of trouble. Calls from customers can prevent problems down the road, if only people will listen carefully. Someone behind on their work is likely to make mistakes as they try to cover too much ground too quickly. A seemingly minor issue can become magnified as a job progresses. Make it everyone’s job to find better ways to get work done more profitably. Explain to people that in order for the company to be profitable, each employee needs to help generate revenue worth three to four times their cost. If they don’t know how to do that, help them figure it out.

Report: Rail chief to step down Howard Permut, president of the MetroNorth Railroad, is expected to retire at the end of the month, according to The New York Times. The report comes after a tumultuous stretch for Metro-North that included two train derailments. In the past year, five people have died on and along the tracks and more than 100 passengers have been injured. During a staff meeting, Permut reportedly told colleagues he planned to step down from his position. Joseph Giulietti, the executive director of the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority, is expected to replace him. Prior to serving as the Tri-Rail director, Giulietti was a superintendent of New York Railroad. Permut, a member of the charter Metro-North team in 1983, spent his career

contributing to what became known as one of the safest commuter rail lines in the United States. But two major train derailments last year shook the confidence of some passengers and drew the scrutiny of official agencies. In May, 73 passengers were injured in Fairfield County, Conn., after a train derailed and collided with another train. In December, four passengers died and 70 more were injured after a Hudson Line train jumped the tracks after speeding too quickly around a curve near the Spuyten Duyvil stop. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the derailments. A loose rail joint from a faulty repair is thought to be the cause of the May derailment, while a train engineer’s inattention likely caused the December derailment. – Jennifer Bissell

Super Bowl won’t bring super profits to Westchester BY CRYSTAL KANG ckang@westfairinc.com

W

estchester County’s hospitality sector expects to score some business from next month’s Super Bowl XLVIII although the bulk of visitors to one of the world’s premier sporting events is expected to touch down elsewhere in the metropolitan region. With the National Football League championship game only three weeks away in New Jersey’s Meadowlands, the Westchester County tourism department has teamed with the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee on a Super Bowl website that features a tourist’s guide to the main attractions, accommodations and restaurants in the county. “We have a close proximity to the city and stadium,” said Natasha Caputo, director of Westchester County Tourism and Film. “We’re going to be enthusiastic and welcoming, and we’re working with the Super Bowl Host Committee to create this portal” at escapes. visitwestchesterny.com/football. “We can’t discount the fact that we have lots of hotels, restaurants and transportation companies.” Westchester’s hotel industry is less sanguine about catching much of a spike in trade from Super Bowl fans and revelers. While Manhattan and New Jersey hoteliers have seen a rush of reservations, most hotel managers here expect business to remain at its relatively slow winter pace. Richard Friedman, general manager of DoubleTree by Hilton in Tarrytown, said most Super Bowl visitors already have booked hotels in Manhattan or in New Jersey near MetLife Stadium, on whose frozen turf the game will be played Feb. 2. “Westchester is pretty far off the beaten paths,” said Friedman, whose hotel is a member of the Westchester Hotel Association. “We may get some push from people who couldn’t get rooms in the city or near the stadium. But as of now, I’m not seeing anything yet.” At a recent meeting of the 33-member Westchester Hotel Association, hotel managers agreed the hospitality business will stay at normal levels during Super Bowl week, said Dan Conte, Westchester Hotel Association president and general manager

LSW Limo expects business to boom as its Super Bowl clientele book car services at the Westchester County Airport.

of the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown. They have been cautious about spending on marketing and advertising for the event. “We’re going to save our marketing and resource dollars for things that will make sense for us,” said Conte. “Advertising and marketing tens of thousands of dollars to try and attract a Super Bowl clientele is a high-risk initiative. There’s bigger fish for us to fry.” Few hotel managers in Westchester are putting together Super Bowl packages or hosting any events prior to the game. Castle Hotel and Spa in Tarrytown is an exception. Spokeswoman Brittney Baeriswil said CEOs and CFOs in Westchester have booked eight of its 30 guest rooms for Super Bowl weekend. With limited parking at the stadium and a snowstorm in the forecast, the hotel will host an indoor tailgating event open to the public on Super Bowl Sunday. “Before the game, people can ‘tailgate’ at the Tapestry Lounge in the castle,” Baeriswil said. “We’ll have finger foods, such as spicy tuna rolls, organic chicken sauté and lobster salad sliders. We’ll also have local beers, champagne, scotch and a full bar open.” While LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy, Newark, Morristown and Teterboro airports expect heavy traffic in corporate and private jets for the Super Bowl, the Westchester County Airport won’t see as much, said

airport manager Peter Scherrer. He said about three dozen private and corporate jets have made reservations for landings there, although some that have booked space might instead fly into another airport in the region. The county airport can accommodate up to 65 private jets, depending on the size of the aircraft. Scherrer said Westchester also may get the overflow if private-plane traffic is too heavy at other airports. The county does not offer any coach bus services to MetLife Stadium from the airport. “Most people here make reservations to take limos or personal service vehicles into NYC and New Jersey to spend time there before the Super Bowl,” Scherrer said. Limousine Service of Westchester Chauffeured Transportation, based in West Harrison near the county airport, is more optimistic about its Super Bowl profits than the county’s hotel industry. The private car service company has been taking advanced reservations and about a dozen customers have confirmed plans to use its services to get to MetLife Stadium. “Things will start picking up a couple of weeks before the event,” said Melissa Thornton, CEO of LSW. “Ground transportation is the last thing people think about, believe it or not, and there will be a lot of last-minute requests for vehicles.”

Thornton said her company will also provide taxis for customers needing rides to and from Super Bowl after-parties in Manhattan and throughout Westchester. Andrew Stoppelmann, CEO of Red Oak Transportation in Port Chester, said the Super Bowl week will be a busy time for his company’s 55-vehicle fleet. He expects even more business if the New England Patriots advance to the Super Bowl. Stoppelmann said Red Oak will charge its normal hourly rates for Super Bowl clients. The company did make one service change for the sport and entertainment extravaganza: customers are required to use its services for a minimum of 12 hours. “We’re looking to be sold out shortly,” Stoppelmann said. “We still have our business clients to juggle with the Super Bowl-related activities. All seven of our large vehicles, which don’t handle corporate transportation, are booked.” Stoppelmann said 70 percent of Red Oak Transportation’s fleet will carry Super Bowl-related clientele, with 30 of its 55 vehicles stationed in the MetLife Stadium parking lot while customers attend the game. Stoppelmann is wary of the snowstorm predicted for Super Bowl weekend. “We’re at the mercy of the weather and roads,” he said. “As long as the roads are clear, we will be operating.” HV Biz • WCBJ • January 13, 2014

Angel network chief hangs up his wings BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

orporate Angel Network, the organization based at Westchester County Airport that arranges free flights for cancer patients to treatment centers using empty seats on corporate jets, announced that Peter H. Fleiss will resign as its executive director this month.

Dick Koenig, former publisher of Flying magazine, will succeed Fleiss, who as director emeritus will remain actively involved during the leadership transition. “For 14 years, Peter’s leadership has been key to CAN’s growth,” Corporate Angel Network Chairman Randall Greene said in a press release. “During his tenure, CAN has tripled the annual number of cancer patients flown, expanded corporate participation and

increased financial contributions.” A 21-year Army and Air Guard veteran with combat tours as an aviator in Viet Nam and Korea, Koenig joins CAN after 37 years with Flying magazine, including 26 years as its vice president and publisher. He has served on the boards of all of the aviation industry’s learn-to-fly programs and currently is on the boards of Women in Aviation, Sun-n-Fun, the Lindbergh Foundation and the National Aeronautic Association. He is a former Corporate Angel Network board member. “My involvement with Corporate Angel Network has been extremely rewarding from both a humanitarian and business stand-

point,” said Fleiss, whose retirement takes effect Jan. 20. “I continue to be impressed by the generosity of business aviation and by the ever-increasing number of cancer patients we fly who, after their treatment, become cancer-free.” Since its first flight in 1981, the charitable organization has provided nearly 45,000 flights to adults and children whose best treatment options are often hundreds or even thousands of miles from home. Volunteers and a small office staff coordinate the medical travel needs of patients with the scheduled flight activity of more than 500 participating corporations, resulting in about 250 patient flights each month.

Wi-Fi with one’s room key BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

The DoubleTree by Hilton Tarrytown rang in the new year with a new amenity for today’s traveler – free high-speed wireless Internet access in all of its 247 guest rooms. The hotel at 455 S. Broadway is the first full-service hotel in Westchester County to provide free Wi-Fi access in all guest rooms and one among a minority of full-service hotels nationwide to do so. The DoubleTree’s general manager, Rich Friedman, in a press release said the new service is a result of the hotel’s continuing commitment to meet the needs of its guests. “We learned from listening to them that the number-one amenity they want is free access to the online world from the convenience of their rooms where they can stay connected anytime via their mobile devices – smartphones, tablets and laptops.” According to a Hotels.com amenities survey, “Free Wi-Fi trumps both free parking

and complimentary breakfast when it comes to choosing a hotel for both leisure and business travel, showing that access to the online world is a necessity for modern-day travelers with over a third still looking to stay connected while on vacation.” Another independent survey last year from Smith Travel Research Inc. found that 84 percent of luxury hotel chains and 76 percent of upper-upscale hotel chains still charge for Wi-Fi or offer free Wi-Fi on a limited basis such as in the lobby. “Compared to other full-service hotels in our league, the DoubleTree by Hilton Tarrytown is ahead of the curve,” Friedman said. “Today, small and medium-size firms account for the majority of businesses in Westchester and provide us with opportunities to tailor our services to this highly dynamic market,” Friedman said. “Providing free Wi-Fi access will be especially attractive and convenient to both the local business community and to business travelers.”

NEWSMAKERS plus awards and events Leadership changes at land trust CANDACE SCHAFER, the Westchester Land Trust (WLT) executive director since 2010, has stepped down from her professional position and will join the organization’s board of directors, said Jonathan Wiesner, chairman of the WLT board. Replacing Schafer as WLT president is LORI J. ENSINGER. Schafer led the land conservation organization through its 25th anniversary this year and successfully forged public and private partnerships to protect and enhance the natural resources in the Westchester and eastern Putnam County communities. She came to the WLT with experience as an architect and real estate developer having served as senior vice president at Marcus Partners in Norwalk, Conn. Her experience in the development community gave Schafer a unique and valuable perspective on land preservation, which she utilized to foster collaborations in support of protecting open space. In addition she served as the district chairwoman for the Westchester-Fairfield District Counsel of the Urban Land Institute. “Candace is truly a dedicated professional, and has led the Westchester Land Trust’s efforts to permanently protect environmentally valuable land throughout the region so as to enhance and preserve the quality of life in our communities for generations to come. While we are truly sorry to see Candace step down from her professional role with the organization, we are delighted that she will continue to advance the cause of land conservation as a member of our board of Directors,” said Wiesner. Prior to accepting the WLT presidency, Ensinger was a member of the board of directors of the WLT from 2004 through 2013 and served as chairwoman of both the organization’s investment committee and gov-

DATES jan

ernance and nominating committee. She was also a past chairwoman of the Board of Directors of Teatown Lake Reservation and a co-founder of the Community Land Trust of New Castle. In addition to her nonprofit work and commitment to the environment and conservation issues, Ensinger has a strong background in finance having worked as an investment manager for the past 30 years. She served most recently as managing director, head of value strategies at Columbia Management Investment Advisors in New York City where she led a team responsible for the management of $17 billion in assets. She is a Westchester native and lives in Katonah with her husband, William Kuebler. Speaking on behalf of his fellow directors, Wiesner said, “Lori is the perfect person to lead the Westchester Land Trust during the next phase of our conservation efforts as we continue to identify and preserve important parcels of land, as well as steward those properties that we have already protected to ensure that the public has access and the opportunity to engage with the land.”

New exec at TD Bank TD BANK has named PATRICK M. TRASK as vice president, senior loan officer in commercial lending. He is based in Purchase and is responsible for managing existing relationships and growing a commercial loan portfolio serving middle-market companies throughout Westchester County. Trask has 25 years of experience in banking and lending. Prior to joining TD Bank, he served in commercial lending at HSBC in Buffalo, Yonkers and Poughkeepsie; The Bank of New York in White Plains and Newburgh; and JPMorgan Chase in Newburgh, White Plains and Manhattan.

A helping hand

Cold Spring gallery owner puts spotlight on emerging talent

By MaRy shUstaCK mshustack@westfairinc.com

F

used-glass artist Barbara Galazzo knows one thing for sure. “It’s so hard to break into the art field,” she said. That’s why the owner of Gallery 66 NY in Cold Spring is helping spotlight some of the Hudson Valley’s youngest talent. “To show in your high school is one thing, and you take classes… that’s nice,” she said. But to be a teenage artist who has already had his or her work as part of a juried exhibition at a commercial gallery? Galazzo said that’s a credit bound to not only boost confidence but will likely also help when students apply for art schools or colleges. This month, Galazzo is featuring multimedia works from 20 young artists in “Roots and Pathways” at Gallery 66 NY. The works reflect the show’s themes, as they relate to the artists’ personal lives, histories and visions for the future. Back in the autumn, Galazzo put out a call to several high schools in Putnam, Westchester, Dutchess and Orange counties, seeking emerging artists to submit work for the show she hopes to make an annual event. Students selected represent five high schools. Galazzo said the exhibition was also designed, in part, to benefit her gallery. It both furthers the element of her mission that’s dedicated to introducing talented newcomers – of

all ages – from the Hudson Valley, but will also introduce the gallery to a new audience. “I don’t want to say it was totally a business decision, but it was a part of it.” The Jan. 3 opening reception proved her point with the space filled with dozens of people who formed a network of potential new customers. “It was (the artists’) parents, their grandparents, their aunts, their friends,” she said. The opening weekend, she said, continued to witness an increase in foot traffic, including a number of young art lovers who were there to support their friends and take in the talent of their peers. “Saturday and Sunday we had quite a few young kids,” Galazzo said. The featured work, Galazzo said, is more than just on exhibit. “They all have a price on them. They’re all being sold.” Works start at $70, a price point Galazzo says encourages new art lovers and collectors to pick up “totally affordable” work. Several, she added, have already sold. And, Galazzo added, some sales might even prove a wise investment, as she noted there are a few young artists definitely worth “keeping an eye on.” “Roots and Pathways” continues through Feb. 2 at Gallery 66 NY, at 66 Main St. in Cold Spring. For more, call (845) 8095838 or visit gallery66ny.com.

My 2014 predictions

I

normally eschew making predictions. At best, they’re a best guess. At worst, they really miss the mark. However, this year I decided to put aside my hesitations and go on the record with my 2014 predictions. But first, I want to ask a few questions. Which online platform has the second-highest number of advertisements after Google? The answer is Facebook, which in 2013 has overtaken Microsoft and Yahoo to generate $3.17 billion in U.S. advertising revenue. (Google generated $17 billion, nearly 40 percent of all U.S. ad revenue dollars.) A significant and increasing portion of Facebook’s generated income is from mobile advertising that is now also second to Google. Globally, digital advertising rose to $119.52 billion with 62.45 percent of the revenue derived from platforms other than Google and Facebook.

HV

Which two platforms grabbed the highest share of worldwide mobile advertisements? Not surprisingly, the answer is Google (48.76 percent) and Facebook (16.91 percent). Facebook had the largest increase, rising from 5.34 percent to 16.91 percent in one year. Total mobile ad spending grew 105.9 percent in 2013, rising from $8.82 billion to $18.15 billion, denoting amazingly rapid growth. What element should most local social media campaigns now include? Mobile search. We just starting working with a dental practice and one of the areas we addressed involved mobile. In fact, if you are a local company and do not have a mobile site, I strongly recommend you get one soon. They range in price from free to usually no more than $30 a month. Amazingly, for many websites you can be mobile in a matter of minutes. If you want some recommendations, please send me an email with a request. What continues to be the most important part of any online campaign?

social media trends

By BRUCe NewMaN

Content creation. Google and other search engines along with most online users have placed increasing importance on content. Most successful digital marketing campaigns rely on a foundation built on consistent and high-quality content. Whether the campaign involves social media, webinars, email marketing or paid advertising, it still depends on well-crafted content to successfully drive it. What is the common theme of my questions (which incidentally comprises my 2014 prediction)? That companies will continue to increase the amount of money they spend on online advertising to drive their campaigns and promote their products and services. Despite the presence of the Big Two – Facebook and Google – ad revenue spending on many other platforms including Twitter, LinkedIn, Yahoo and mobile will continue to grow. Expect the number of platforms to grow since a multiplatform approach is increasingly important in being able to reach a company’s target audience; spreading the

wealth for both content and advertising is essential. Remember that mobile can realistically account for at least 30 percent of your views. As online platforms develop new capabilities and reach, marketing strategies will also continue to evolve. And finally, that regardless of the platform, great content that’s both informative and original is essential because after all, content is still king. I hope you have a great 2014. It will certainly be exciting. Bruce Newman is the vice president at The Productivity Institute L.L.C. He specializes in content creation and digital marketing.

These specialized rides are not just for the golf course

hen is a golf cart not a golf cart? Ask Bruno and Diane Ferretti that question and they will tell you, “When it is used as an ambulance on stand-by for crowded events; as a road vehicle in senior citizen communities like The Villages in Florida; even when decorated to transport bridal parties.” The Ferrettis are entering their second decade as owners of Orange County Golf Carts, based in Port Jervis. They sell and rent golf carts. Last year’s sales numbered about 200 carts, with rentals several times that number. “We had a Russian client who found our website, www.orangecountygolfcarts.com, and ordered five carts in one day for a resort,” Diane said. “They had to be electric. That’s all that is allowed.” The Ferrettis offer gas, diesel and electric-powered vehicles. The couple does tailor-made designs for their clientele. They order the chassis and Bruno does the construction work while Diane works on designs, assisting customers in selection of paint and fabrics. A model bearing the name “Diane” guarantees each customer a one-of-a-kind vehicle. The couple agreed the happiest aspect of their business is making senior citizens mobile. “Some live on farms and couldn’t get around otherwise,” Diane said. “In many states, carts are allowed on roadways having a 35 miles per hour speed limit. The lowspeed vehicles are popular at senior-citizen condominiums. “Golf cart rentals are in demand for tournaments, where time is a factor,” she said. As for individual golfing, “Some people walk the course for exercise, but others have time restraints.” One rental in particular stands out in the couple’s memory. “We had a wedding booked six months in advance,” Diane said. “A l929 Ford Golden White eight-passenger limo was rented for the bride and groom, and others for guests, with our drivers. While transporting party members from a cocktail hour at one part of the resort to the reception at another, it began to pour. Planned outdoor photos could not be taken in the rain. So, the next day we had nothing booked for those carts. We dried off the decorations, and Bruno went back with the photographer and got the desired shots.” The business was born after Diane retired from a horse enterprise on a family farm in Greenville. An avid gardener and golfer, she

was emerging from the golf course one day when a truck pulled up to deliver golf carts. “I thought that one of those would be perfect for carrying around my gardening tools,” she said. “I asked the driver how I

could get one. Friends began to ask me where they could get these for themselves and the manufacturer suggested that I become a retailer.” The world of motors was no stranger to

her husband, who for 40 years operated an automotive business in Pine Island, which the pair still owns, now managed by their sons, Eric and Bruno. He joined Diane in ownership of the golf cart business. The Ferrettis attended the same grammar school in Vernon, N.J., but not at the same time. They met when she was a carhop and he was employed in a silk mill, custom designing clothing labels. That was in l964. They married the following year. Then it was off to Germany for both while Bruno served in the U.S. Army. Once back home he went to work for a company that made windows for the space shuttles. His introduction to the automotive business came through part-time work for a friend. So, for both Ferrettis retirement meant only embarking on a new career venture. Challenging Careers focuses on the exciting and unusual business lives of Hudson Valley residents. Comments or suggestions may be emailed to Catherine Portman-Laux at cplaux@optonline.net.

Devine Design, a website and graphic design company in Chester, recently donated its professional web design services to create a website and logo for the nonprofit Orange County Land Trust (OCLT). Devine Design was founded in 1985 by husband and wife team, Susannah and Don Devine. The couple has worked with many local, regional and international clients, building a solid reputation among the business community, as well as nonprofit, government and educational institutions. “Susannah and Don were a pleasure to work with and we were delighted to learn of their decision to donate all of their creative time and professional web hosting services to Orange County Land Trust,” said Jim Delaune, executive director of the OCLT. “Our previous website needed a major overhaul and major updating to help us get our message and news out to more people,” he said. “We teach our clients to update their own sites,” Susannah Devine said. “If you can type an email, you can update your Wordpress site. The staff at OCLT took right to it and they are doing a great job with changes, news posts and regular updates. This ability to change their own site helps save them time, money, emails and phone calls. Plus, the frequent updates help improve their search rankings.” Devine said, “We donated this website facelift for OCLT because we appreciate all they do to keep Orange County green. OCLT works to create interest and involvement with the local environment, with numerous programs, projects and more. We hope the new website will help the Orange County Land Trust continue to spread the word about their important work.” For more information, as well as to become a member of Orange County Land Trust, visit the website at oclt.org for a downloadable and printable membership form.

pACkinG A WAllop At 50

Garrison Art Center launched its 50th anniversary with an exhibition in The Riverside Galleries titled “Ivan Chermayeff 50 Collages.” Although Chermayeff may be best known throughout the world for his iconographic designs, his equally brilliant talent as a fine artist is the focus of the first 50th anniversary celebration at the center. An exhibition of 50 small collages by Chermayeff will run through Feb. 9. The Riverside Galleries are open Tuesdays through Sundays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The exhibition will feature collages Chermayeff created to help celebrate this significant milestone in the history of the center. In each of these small pieces, it is apparent that cast-off items have taken on a new and larger existence. The perfect juxtaposition of shape, color and texture create a dynamic composition that, with just the right touch of wit, combine to create a small package that packs a giant wallop. Chermayeff, a student of Harvard and Yale, is a man of multiple talents and inclinations. Design, architecture,


illustration and fine art are all vital areas of his professional life. His art work has been exhibited throughout the world, and in galleries, including The Corcoran Museum of Art, Washington, D.C.; The Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, Mass.; Jacksonville Art Museum, Jacksonville, Fla.; and Visual Arts Museum at the School of Visual Arts, New York City. Elected to the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame, he served for two decades as a trustee of the Museum of Modern Art.

Since 2005 the hudson Valley MeChaniCal ConTraCTors assoCiaTion (MCA) has chosen a charitable organization with a local presence as its golf outing beneficiary. This year the association donated $30,000 to The Danny Fund, headquartered in Pelham, bringing its total golf outing donations to $250,000. The Danny Fund is a not-for-profit children’s charity providing financial, emotional and advocacy support for the families of children with catastrophic illness or injury. The Fund was founded in 1993 when a four-year

old named Danny was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia, and friends, family and community groups responded with offers of emotional support. Danny responded to the treatment, and today is leading a full, active and normal life. See www.thedannyfund.org The Hudson Valley MCA serves the leading heating, cooling and plumbing firms in Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess and Ulster counties, and has been dedicated for more than 60 years to promoting professional standards and quality service to the industry.
