Confidence down among top execs BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

E

In the four-county region served by the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, sales of single-family houses, condominiums, cooperatives, and two- to four-family buildings increased 15 percent last year from 2011, with 11,481 residential units sold. The region includes Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Putnam counties. Westchester, which typically accounts for about two-

ntering 2013, CEOs and top executives across New York state show new signs of frustration and more pessimism about business conditions and the state economy. And private-sector leaders in Westchester County and the Hudson Valley are some of the least confident about business prospects in New York this year, second only to the Buffalo region, according to a recent survey. Conducted by the Siena College Research Institute, the annual survey by First Niagara Bank N.A. was expanded in its sixth year to include the eight-county Hudson Valley region, stretching from largely rural Columbia and Greene Counties in the north to suburban Westchester and Rockland counties in the south. First Niagara in 2012 entered that regional market with its conversion of about 100 upstate New York and Fairfield County, Conn. branches acquired from HSBC Bank USA. It operates 24 branches in the Hudson Valley, including 6 branches in northern Westchester and 12 in Rockland. Its regional business banking and mortgage offices are in Nyack. The Siena survey in December drew responses from 199 CEOs, chief financial officers and other senior managers of private businesses in Westchester and the Hudson valley with $5 million to $150 million in annual sales. They represent the service, manufacturing, engineering and construction, retail, wholesale and distribution, financial and food and beverage industries. Statewide, 1,142 corporate leaders were surveyed by Siena researchers. For the first time in three years, the overall confidence index statewide fell well below the 100 mark, the point of equal balance between surveyed leaders’ optimism and pessimism about current and future economic conditions in their industry and across the state. The overall index dropped 12 points from 97.9 near the close of 2011 to 85.9 near the close of 2012.

Cuomo’s energy initiatives meet mixed response BY SAM BARRON sbarron@westfairinc.com

G

ov. Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State address delivered ambitious promises from gun control to storm cleanup. But his proposals on energy have gotten many people talking. In his address, Cuomo vowed to make New York state the leader in the clean tech economy, creating a $1 billion green bank to leverage public dollars with a private sector match. He also announced $150 million in annual funding to increase solar panel installations in homes and businesses. Cuomo also named Richard Kauffman as the state’s energy czar (see sidebar). Kauffman previously served as senior advisor to Steven Chu, the U.S. Secretary of Energy. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy and Tropical Storm Irene, the governor also announced plans to tackle climate change in the state, including lowering the cap on greenhouse gas emissions. New York is one of nine states in the Northeast to participate in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (REGGI), which sets a cap on carbon dioxide throughout the region, with the goal of reducing emissions by 10 percent. New York accounts for 40 percent of the region’s emissions. Cuomo said his energy proposals draw from the work of four commissions he formed after Sandy hit: NYS Respond, NYS Ready, NYS 2100 and the Moreland Commission on Utility Storm Preparation and Response. Jackson Morris, director of strategic engagement for Pace University’s Energy and Climate Center has been working with the governor’s office on the energy platform and praised Cuomo’s ambitious plans. “It was encouraging to see government committed to climate change,” Morris said. “The commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is a huge step forward, not only for New York, but for the eight states that are part of REGGI. It’s huge victory in

New York.” Morris also praised Cuomo for his commitment to solar energy and for trying to increase electric vehicles in New York. Cuomo proposed installing 2,500 charging stations throughout the state. “He recognizes that it’s imperative that we reduce our dependence on oil,” Morris said. “It’s a huge step forward.” While many State of the State addresses include bold proposals that will never see the light of day, Morris said that Cuomo’s record speaks for itself. “If it was any other governor, I would be less excited,” Morris said. “He does not commit unless he has thought through about implementation. He had a big initiative to reduce energy consumption in state buildings and he did that. I am very confident that this governor will work to make all of these ambitious proposals a reality, based on his track record.” The Alliance for Clean Energy New York Inc. (ACE NY) also had praise for Cuomo’s energy platform. “We were quite pleased with what he had to say,” Valerie Strauss, interim executive director for ACE NY. “We need to address climate change, we agree with that. I don’t think his clean energy proposals are hard to do or overreaching.” Strauss said that under Cuomo, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has become a nationwide leader in energy research, with other states following its lead. “The programs are replicated everywhere,” Strauss said. “We’ve made major inroads. Clean energy will be important to combat climate change and development opportunities in the state. Clean energy and a green economy take a lot of investments but the payoffs can be quite large.” Reaction from business groups has been mixed. John Ravitz, executive vice president of The Business Council of Westchester, said that keeping energy costs competitive and relicensing Indian Point should be a priority. “We need to lower energy costs to

spur the economy and benefit consumers,” Ravitz said. Ravitz said he was disappointed that there was no talk of mandate relief in the State of State, and he was curious as to how Albany would pay for its energy platform. “You can’t play the ‘spend and pretend’ game,” Ravitz said. “We need to make sure that if we propose any big ticket items that we have the money to pay for it. Mandate relief has to be put on everyone’s radar screens.” The Business Council of New York State Inc. issued a statement fearing that some of Cuomo’s energy proposals would cost businesses or become a barrier for businesses that want to come to New York. Darren Suarez, director of government affairs for the state Business Council, said that while the council supports Cuomo’s interest in having reliable, affordable and locally generated energy sources, he is concerned by the potential costs of what the governor proposed. “Some of these policies could have an adverse effect on New York’s electric consumers,” Suarez said. “Some of these proposals will cost businesses additional resources and we will see an increase in consumer costs. The expansion of the solar program will result in increased utility costs.” Suarez fears that manufacturers will leave the state and go elsewhere if they can’t meet the cap on greenhouse gases. Morris disagrees and believes that New York’s energy policies will make the state more competitive, citing economic models that have shown there are over $2 billion in macroeconomic benefits from capped emission programs. “That’s reinvested in energy efficiency and renewable energy,” Morris said. “Critics said REGGI would cause blackouts and increase electricity costs, but electricity costs have dropped. We are very excited to implement this agenda; this puts New York on the national state for climate policy. It’s going to be a busy year.”

Kauffman appointed energy czar BY SAM BARRON sbarron@westfairinc.com

Richard Kauffman is the state’s new leader on energy policy and energy finance. Gov. Andrew Cuomo appointed Kauffman to be in his cabinet as chairman of the new Energy Policy and Finance Sub-Cabinet. Kauffman will be involved in establishing the state’s green bank. The bank, run through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), will offer loans and grants to further clean energy deployment, coordinate and leverage the state’s clean energy spending and alleviate financial market barriers that impede clean energy projects. Kauffman was a senior advisor to the U.S. Secretary of Energy, and previously served as CEO of Good Energies Inc., a company that invested in renewable energy projects. He has also worked for Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, and served on the board of the Wildlife Conservation Society. “Richard Kauffman’s extensive private and public sector experience in energy and finance matters will improve coordination of the state’s energy policy and further the establishment of New York as the national leader in the clean energy economy,” Cuomo said in a statement.

Corrections To The Editor: The below clarifies statements attributed to me in the Dec. 24 edition of the Westchester County Business Journal’s report of a Dec. 14 breakfast hosted by the Association for Corporate Growth. At the meeting, I did not suggest that the fear of fracking was irrational. What I said was that EPA is undertaking a study of the impacts on water supplies from fracking and that if done away from watershed areas and with proper engineering and regulatory controls, fracking should not be rejected due to irrational fears. Additionally, the cost of EPA’s new upcoming ozone regulations is not $19 billion, as reported. The cost is $19 billion annually to $90 billion annually, based on EPA’s 2011 proposed rule which is expected to be re-proposed in 2013 and adopted in 2014.

Maloney ‘absolutely committed’ to job growth

BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

F

reshman U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, a Democrat hailing from Cold Spring, was among the youngest people to serve as White House staff secretary, doing so during the Clinton administration. After defeating incumbent Nan Hayworth last November in the state’s 18th Congressional District election, Maloney finds himself just a short walk down Pennsylvania Avenue at the U.S. Capitol. The Business Journal recently sat down with Maloney to discuss his policy goals and the most pressing needs facing the Hudson Valley business community. The following are excerpts from that conversation: Business Journal: What are the biggest needs facing the Hudson Valley? Maloney: “Short-term, we’ve got to finish the job on Sandy disaster relief. … It’s very important to get help to folks who are hurting, but equally important I want to see us do storm damage prevention … “Pulling the lens back, the economy and jobs are my number one priority. … For example, on the west side of the (Hudson

River) in Orange County, there’s a project called Taylor Biomass that will put 300 people to work tomorrow. I think it’s very important that we support that project. I was in Middletown yesterday … where Touro College is opening an osteopathic medical college – great project, going to be 1,000 jobs, it’s going to build off of the health carefocused economy in that part of the district. “On this side of the river, I think it’s very important to work with the governor’s regional economic council in the lower Hudson Valley and Westchester and elsewhere on the priorities they’ve already identified like supporting the biotech industry, like bringing high-tech manufacturing back to the Hudson Valley. So this is where I want to focus, and I’m very happy that I’m on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee where I’ll really be able to sink my teeth into projects like the Tappan Zee Bridge that’ll also be critical to future job growth.” How can Congress help private industry to invest and expand? “I’ve run a business – I spent three years running a software company. I’ve created jobs, I had to meet a payroll, I understand the pressures that particularly small business people

face, and I’m dead serious about trying to make their lives easier. “What does that mean? In nuts and bolts terms, we’ve got to continue to reform the tax code to make ourselves more competitive. I’d like to see us lower rates, broaden the base. I’d like to see us lower the corporate rate. I’d like to see us lower the rate for manufacturing. And I think we can achieve that if we close some loopholes and rationalize the code. I’d like to see us continue to invest in basic research and innovation and education and infrastructure. These are the ways that government really supports and furthers private sector economic development: we know it works, it’s always worked, we need to start doing what makes sense again.” You worked in the Clinton White House – how do you apply those experiences now to Congress? “Politics is all about relationships and I’ve got a large number of relationships with folks who are working in the administration, people who I worked with in the Clinton administration and elsewhere. That’s very important. It’s very important to know how Washington works, it’s very important to have worked at the state level and to understand Albany and how our state government

works, and the reason is because almost every problem we’ve got to fix requires working with all those people, together – across party lines, at the state, local and federal level. I see it as my job to bring people together and to get things done.” You’ve been named to the House Committee on Agriculture. What are your plans to help Hudson Valley farmers? “You get in and you work on that farm bill, as I’m going to do over the next nine months. It’s been extended until September … that gives me an opportunity to work … on ways to focus that bill more on the kind of farms we have here in the Hudson Valley. They tend to be smaller, they tend to be family-owned, specialty crops, a lot of organics, a lot of onions in Orange County. “A lot of the laws are written for big agribusiness – they don’t make sense for our folks. If you look at the crop loss insurance program, if you look at the way we helped people after Hurricane Irene, or didn’t, really, we can do a lot better, and I want to be part of that.” For the full conversation, visit us on the web at westfaironline.com.

Bronxville broker closes two sales

BY SAM BARRON and JOHN GOLDEN sbarron@westfairinc.com jgolden@westfairinc.com

Realtors and village officials are confident that a deal will close this year that puts a tenant in the former Borders store at 162 E. Main St. in Mount Kisco. The 21,500-square-foot property has been vacant since September 2011 when Borders Books and Music declared bankruptcy and closed all of its locations. Borders was a major anchor store in the village’s downtown shopping district and retailers have complained their businesses have suffered in the wake of its closing. Carl Austin, of Austin Properties L.L.C. in Rye Brook, one of two brokers listing the property, said they are in negotiations with a national retail company.

He declined to name the company, but said the retailer would lease the entire space. “There’s been tremendous interest in the property,” Austin said. “It’s a landmark building in Mount Kisco. It’s one of the largest buildings on Main Street. We are hopeful that the present negotiations will result in a long-term lease.” He said he expects a lease to be signed within the next several months. “It would be very appropriate to that space and would fulfill all the zoning requirements,” Austin said. “That’s why we are pursuing it as we are.” Eric Goldschmidt, of Goldschmidt & Associates in Scarsdale, said another party is interested in the space, though Austin said that company would only be con-

sidered if negotiations with the national retailer fell through. Mount Kisco Mayor Michael Cindrich said the village is working with the landlord, New York-based Property Group Partners L.L.C., to fill the space and provide a needed boost to its beleaguered businesses. “As an anchor store, Borders attracted people to Mount Kisco at all hours,” Cindrich said. “Mount Kisco would do well to fill that spot. It’s an attractive site with ample parking. It’s a large space with a unique floor plan.” Cindrich hopes that filling the Borders location could create a domino effect, leading to more downtown vacancies being filled. Property Group Partners did not respond to requests for comment.

Houlihan & O’Malley Real Estate Services in Bronxville brokered two recent sales of commercial properties in Yonkers and Mount Vernon. In Yonkers, Gerry Houlihan was exclusive broker in a $1 million all-cash deal for a 12,200-square-foot warehouse with commercial kitchen at 1-3 Bridge St. in Yonkers. The twostory building sold for $850,000 and the kitchen business sold for $150,000 to Shaun W. Cain. The undisclosed seller was represented by attorney Peter Bassano of Bleakley, Platt & Schmidt L.L.P. in White Plains. Cain was represented by David Gruber of Salamon, Gruber, Blaymore & Strenger P.C. in Roslyn Heights. In Mount Vernon, Alex Tsiros paid $250,000 for 109 S. 4th Ave., a one-story, 3,600- square-foot retail building with four separate units. Houlihan represented both Tsiros and the undisclosed seller in the deal. The seller’s attorney was Hugh Jasne of Jasne & Florio L.L.P. in White Plains. The buyer was represented by attorney Bill Vasiliadis of Astoria, Queens.

Retail tenant signs in Mount Vernon

KZA Realty Group Inc. in the Bronx announced that Dwayne McKinley and Eric Grosse have leased 2,160 square feet of retail space at 128 Gramatan Ave. in downtown Mount Vernon. The 5-year lease was valued at approximately $242,100. Sherry Scanlon of KZA represented both the tenants and the landlord, Anthony Gizzo of G&G Realty Management Corp.


Banking industry remains cautiously optimistic about 2013 BY TARICE L.S. GRAY tgray@westfairinc.com

T

he nation felt relief when talk of falling off the “fiscal cliff” was left behind in 2012. But the recession and slow economic recovery still torments a nation striving for financial health. Talk of managing the debt ceiling has once again demanded the attention of Washington, D.C. lawmakers. It has also impacted a banking industry that suffered tremendous losses during the economic downturn. Michael Smith, president and CEO of the New York Bankers Association, said the industry is looking forward to more assurance from the government. “We strongly support initiatives and policies that would give certainty and move away as much as possible from temporary fixes,” said Smith. Businesses, especially those in New York that help generate a sizable amount of revenue, have to be able to plan, Smith pointed out. But planning has become more of a challenge because of a Congress that struggles to find common ground.

“We all know the political situation in Washington,” he said. “But for the sake of our state, our region and our own constituency, which is banking, we would like the moves made to be permanent not only on the revenue side but on the spending side.” Despite the ripple effects of Washington’s noted struggles, the banking industry has cause to be somewhat optimistic. New laws and regulations are set up to offer more stability. To start the new year, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) released revised rules for qualified mortgages that would presumably strengthen consumer protections for highcost mortgages, as well as better prepare consumers for homeownership through counseling. Among the new rules, the CFPB opted to ban most balloon payments and ban the penalties for paying a mortgage off early. The rules also restrict fees for modifying mortgage loans and they put a cap on late fees for past-due mortgage payments so they don’t exceed 4 percent. The bureau will no longer allow most closing costs to

be rolled into the loan amount, and they placed restrictions on the fees associated with a consumer’s request for a payoff statement. Additionally, the CFPB prohibits controversial practices like encouraging consumers to default on an existing loan so they could be refinanced by a highcost mortgage. The bureau also released new rules that directly impact the DoddFrank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Lenders will be required to provide a list of homeownership counseling organizations to their consumers shortly after they apply for a mortgage. This provision would aid the requirement of providing counseling to would-be homebuyers, to ensure that consumers know where to get help when deciding what loan is best suited for them. Smith welcomes the new the new guidelines and said they “will bring stability to the marketplace in terms of what a lender can use as guidelines, guideposts, and that’s good.” The U.S. Department of the Treasury also recently announced that New York

financial institutions would receive a $300 million boost through the Small Business Lending Fund (SBLF). The Treasury Department released a report showing that SBLF participants have increased lending to small businesses since its inception in 2010 by $7.4 billion overall. The Treasury has invested more than $4 billion in 332 financial institutions through SBLF. The SBLF is a part the Obama’s small business initiatives aimed to help small businesses access the capital they require to invest and hire. It also is a part of the plan to help spur a still slumping economy. “We believe the economy is poised to move forward in a positive way and there should be a new level of confidence so lenders are willing and able to lend,” said Smith. That sets a tone the banking community can positively respond to, he said. “So, on the regulatory side and the public policy side we’re beginning to see some definition, some certainty, and hopefully we get through the next couple of months past this debt ceiling at the federal level, and we should be in a good situation in 2013.”

thirds of sales in the region, had a 14 percent gain from 2011. Realtors in Rockland County saw an 11 percent year-over-year increase in sales, while Putnam and Orange counties each recorded 9 percent gains over 2011 sales activity. In Westchester, the fourth-quarter jump in house closings was led by the condo market, where 1,004 units were sold, a 20.2 percent increase from the fourth quarter of 2011. A total of 4,465 single-family homes were sold in the county, a 16.3 percent increase from the previous year. A total of 7,063 housing sales closed in the country in 2012. House prices in Westchester in 2012 failed to keep pace with the gradual price increases seen throughout the U.S. and in other regions of New York, HGMLS noted in its annual and fourth quarter report. The 2012 median sale price in the county, $587,000, was 2.2 percent below the 2011 median and 6.8 percent below the median sale price in 2010, when Westchester Realtors last saw a slight increase in sales after a steady decline that began in 2005. The co-op market in Westchester saw the steepest price decline last year, with the $148,450 median price of a co-op apartment representing a 7.2 percent drop from 2011. The mean or average sale price of a single-family home in Westchester in 2012 was $800,790, a 1.7 percent decrease from 2011.

Confidence — From page 1

In Westchester and the Hudson Valley, the overall confidence index was 83.5 among company chiefs. That ranked fourth among five upstate regions, with Buffalo’s longailing private sector registering 80.6 on the index, a more than 14-point drop from the previous year. The Albany area, one of the nation’s fastest-growing high-tech job markets, led the 2013 overall confidence index at 96.3. Yet a majority of business leaders there too shifted to pessimism from their optimism at the start of 2012, when the capital area’s confidence index was at 102.8 The Rochester region, another center of high-tech enterprise in the state, was second on the confidence index at 91.8, down 7.8 from a year ago. In Westchester and the Hudson Valley, 27 percent of leaders surveyed said they expect business conditions in the state economy to improve this year, while 35 percent expect conditions to remain about the same

HGMLS analysts said Westchester’s and the Hudson region’s lagging prices reflect buyers’ focus on the middle market, where housing stock “has been heavily discounted since the recession.” Buyers are taking advantage of market conditions “that make the region’s housing as affordable as it has been in a very long time.” Westchester’s high-end market, which historically has made the county’s house prices the highest in New York, has seen less activity since the recession. The listing service reported that fourth-quarter sales of single-family houses priced at more than $1 million accounted for less than 18 percent of total sales volume for the quarter. Five to six years ago, sales of luxury homes accounted for as much as 25 percent to 30 percent of the market. The county’s end-of-year inventory of housing listed on the market totaled 4,822 units, a 12.3 percent decline from 2011. A total of 2,570 single-family homes were listed for sale at year’s end, a 12.7 percent decline from the previous year. Westchester’s condo market, where sales rose markedly in 2012 over the previous three years, ended the year with 539 units for sale, a 23.4 percent decline from 2011. Though the dwindled inventory has not caused a housing shortage in Westchester or the region, an analyst at HGMLS noted that the leaner supply “can be felt in the marketplace. Some Realtors have reported that prospective purchasers have had to speed up their

decision-making process in order to secure a property from competing buyers.” The residential real estate market in 2013 will continue to be favorable to buyers, according to the HGMLS analysis. Barring economic or political catastrophes at the national level

that would shatter consumer confidence, it “will likely accelerate from the momentum of the 2012 market.” Buyers this year should see a market that offers moderate pricing “at least for a time” and record-low mortgage interest rates.

as in 2012. A plurality of leaders, 38 percent, said conditions will worsen. Nearly the same plurality, 37 percent, expects their companies’ profits to decline this year. Another 35 percent predicted they will stay the same, while 27 percent expect to see profits increase in 2013. David Ring, managing director of enterprise banking at First Niagara, said “signs of frustration” seem to have emerged among executives, a good number of whom have “weathered the storm” since the 2007-2008 recession. Though less optimistic now than in the last three years, executives are “still willing to invest in people and fixed assets,” he noted. In this region, nearly one in five, or 19 percent, of corporate leaders said they expect to increase their workforce in 2013, compared with 16 percent who said they will cut employment levels. The great majority, about 64 percent, said their companies’ job numbers will remain the same. About 47 percent of the region’s business leaders surveyed said they plan to invest in fixed asset acquisitions this year to meet growing demand, reduce costs or increase profitability. Of those looking to invest, 45

percent plan to use internally generated funds while 43 percent intend to finance through a financial institution. At First Niagara’s business banking division, “What we’re seeing is basically flat demand for loans, but we’re not seeing that hoarding of cash” by companies, said Ring. “We see borrowing, utilization of our lines, not changing very much.” Ring said he was surprised that Westchester and the Hudson Valley fell on the low end of the confidence index. The region “is a very important growth market for us because through good times and bad it tends to perform better than certain markets we’re in.” “Downstate tends to do better in terms of bouncing back quickly. I’m surprised at the difference in confidence down here compared to up there,” he said. Unlike upstate markets served by First Niagara, this metropolitan area has felt the impact of the real estate bubble, Ring noted. And business leaders’ confidence might also have been shaken by the devastating losses of Hurricane Sandy, he said. Ring said it was also a surprise that top

executives in the region see governmental regulation as the greatest challenge to their companies, with 22 percent ranking it first, ahead of adverse economic conditions at 20 percent, taxation at 13 percent and health care costs and cash flow at 12 percent each. “Consumer confidence seems to be better right now than business owner confidence,” Ring said. As consumers spend more, “Hopefully business owners will pick up that optimism.”

INBRIEF Cuomo signs new gun law

New York now has the strictest gun law in the nation. Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the NY Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act into law Jan. 15, which bans assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and has stricter measures for obtaining a gun. Cuomo signed the bill after it was approved by the Assembly 104-43 on Jan. 15, and by the Senate 43-18 a day prior. New York is the first state to ban magazines that can hold more than seven rounds of ammunition. In addition, background checks will be required on all ammunition purchases. The law also requires background checks for guns bought at gun shows. Pistol permits must be recertified every five years. “The new law will limit gun violence through common sense, reasonable reforms that include addressing the risks posed by mentally ill people who have access to guns and banning high capacity magazines and lethal assault weapons,” Cuomo said in a statement. “This legislation … is about reducing gun violence and making New York

a safer place to live.” The National Rifle Association (NRA) issued a statement calling the law draconian and said they were outraged. “These gun control schemes have failed in the past and will have no impact on public safety and crime,” the NRA statement reads. “While lawmakers could have taken a step toward strengthening mental health reporting and focusing on criminals, they opted for trampling the rights of law-abiding gun owners in New York.” The law comes one month after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., that left 20 children dead.

Boehner’s decision to postpone the vote earned him intense criticism from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Long Island Congressman Peter King, both fellow Republicans. Christie, along with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, issued a joint statement on the passing of the bill: “We are grateful to those members of Congress who today pulled together in a unified, bipartisan coalition to assist millions of their fellow Americans in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut at their greatest time of need.”

House passes Sandy aid bill

Business Council names new board members

It took longer than expected, but the U.S. House of Representatives approved $50.7 billion in aid to the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The bill, approved 241-180, is expected to be approved by the Senate and signed by President Barack Obama. The bill helps distressed homeowners and business owners and repairs public transportation that was damaged during the storm, as well as reimbursing local governments. The aid package was supposed to be voted on in early January, before being yanked from the docket by Speaker of the House John Boehner, as Republicans criticized the pork barrel spending that was in the bill.

The Business Council of Westchester has added four business leaders to its board of directors. The four joining the board are: William Marsillo, a partner in the law firm of Boies, Schiller & Flexner in Armonk; Westchester magazine publisher Ralph Martinelli; Andy Tung, partner at Divney Tung Schwalbe, a land planning firm based in White Plains; and Laura Woznitski, senior director of leasing and development for BioMed Realty Trust, which owns the Landmark at Eastview complex. Marsha Gordon, CEO of The Business Council of Westchester, said she believes the new board members “will help us steward the efforts and direction of the Business Council as we advocate for our current and potential members in the county.”

Region’s businesses among state’s top 50

An Ardsley-based biotechnology company has been named one of the 50 best companies to work for in New York for the third consecutive year. A Mount Kisco-based manufacturer of electric vehicle instruments and controllers also is a repeat recipient in the annual Best Companies to Work for - New York awards announced by the New York State Society for Human Resource Management. Three Hudson Valley companies also made the 2013 list. Acorda Therapeutics Inc. in Ardsley, which develops and markets drugs used to treat patients with multiple sclerosis and other neurological disorders, ranked among 20 top large employers with more than 250 employees in the statewide survey. The survey gauges employee satisfaction and engagement as well as workplace practices and policies. Curtis Instruments, a business founded in Mount Kisco in 1960, also was ranked among the state’s best large employers. Curtis Instruments also was honored with the award in 2011.

Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union in Poughkeepsie and Quick Chek Corp. in Newburgh also placed among the state’s top 50 in the large employer category. Access Physical Therapy and Wellness in Goshen was among 30 small and medium employers with 15 to 249 employees named to the 2013 list. Companies’ order of ranking within the two employer categories will be announced at a public awards dinner in Albany on April 30. The 2013 awards are sponsored by Jackson Lewis L.L.P., a national employment and labor law firm headquartered in White Plains, and Capital District Physicians’ Health Plan. Started in 2007, the annual awards program is a partnership of the state Society for Human Resource Management, Best Companies Group, Journal Multimedia Corp. and The Business Council for New York State.

Hudson Valley home sales rise

Real estate sales in Orange, Putnam, Rockland and Westchester counties increased for the first time in nine years, according to The Hudson Gateway Multiple Listing Service (HGMLS). One contributing factor was the median sale price of single-family homes dropped 2 percent to $587,000 in Westchester County, 3 percent to $380,000 in Rockland County and 8 percent to $300,000 in Putnam County, according to 2012 data. The numbers are based on the 11,481 residential-unit sales of single-family homes, condominiums, cooperatives and multifamily dwellings of two to four families. Hudson Gateway also noted that singlefamily home sales had the most significant increase in Putnam and Rockland counties, increasing 9.7 and 10.7 percent, respectively. Condominiums gained popularity in Westchester County with increased sales of 44.5 percent over 2011.

company officer who is responsible for overseeing his company’s pension plan discovers possible wrongdoing in the management of the pension plan, including an effort to hide the fact that the company had failed to make a required contribuMICHAEL H. HURWITZ tion to the plan. He promptly notifies senior management about his discovery. He then sends a letter to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). How does management react to the news of possible wrongdoing in the pension plan? A few hours after the officer alerts management of the problem, he receives a letter of reprimand from the company’s CEO. A few days later, the CEO orders the company’s lawyer to launch an investigation into whether the officer had failed to report certain payroll problems to management. The CEO also begins stripping the officer of many of his responsibilities. Finally, two months later, the company decides to fire its human resources personnel, including the officer. This is what is charged in a 2011 complaint for wrongful dismissal filed by the officer in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut (Kramer v. Trans-Lux Corp.). While the case is still pending before the court, the judge in this case recently issued an important ruling that sends a strong message to employers who may think about taking retaliatory action against whistleblowing employees. In his lawsuit, the officer sought to take advantage of the new anti-retaliation provision of the federal securities laws enacted in 2010 as part of the major overhaul of the nation’s financial and regulatory systems. This provision declares that it is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee who reports possible wrongdoing to the SEC or assists the agency in its efforts to stop the wrongdoing. The law also prohibits an employer from retaliating against an employee who “make(s) disclosures that are required or protected” under the federal securities laws or the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, regardless of whether the employee contacted the SEC about his suspicions of wrongdoing. The law thus protects an employee of a public company who reports information she reasonably believes constitutes a violation of the securities laws to her supervisor or other senior-level employees even if the

person does not forward the information to the SEC. If the employee proves her case, she is entitled to reinstatement with the same seniority status that she would have had but for the discrimination, as well as two times the amount of back pay (plus interest) otherwise owed to the employee and compensation for her litigation costs and attorney fees. In Kramer v. Trans-Lux, the company argued that the anti-retaliation protections did not apply because the officer had not provided his information to the SEC in the manner prescribed under the agency’s rules. Judge Stefan Underhill rejected this argument, noting that Trans-Lux’s interpretation “would dramatically narrow the available protections available to potential whistleblowers” and that “(s)uch a reading seems inconsistent with the goal of the (law), which was to improve the accountability and transparency of the financial system and create new incentives and protections for whistleblowers (internal citations omitted].” Rather, Underhill ruled that all that is required to obtain the protection of the anti-retaliation provisions is that the employee “possessed a reasonable belief that the information provided relates to a possible securities law violation.” The judge concluded that the anti-retaliation protections applied because the officer had a reasonable belief that wrongdoing was occurring when he reported his suspicions to senior management and to the SEC. When company leadership punishes an employee who reports wrongdoing, whether to senior management or to the SEC, they are not only violating the law, they also are injuring those they have a legal responsibility to protect: the company’s investors and the beneficiaries of its pension and retirement plans. Most companies recognize the critical value of having an internal compliance system where employees can report evidence of possible malfeasance without fear of losing their job or being blacklisted. The anti-retaliation protections merely serve to reinforce a corporate culture that has zero toleration for financial or other misconduct. However, for those companies that place personal interests over those of their investors and pension beneficiaries, the antiretaliation provisions of the new law and Underhill’s ruling in Kramer v. Trans-Lux will serve as a clear warning that the law will not tolerate efforts to silence employees through a culture of intimidation and fear. Michael H. Hurwitz is a Bridgeport, Conn., native and senior counsel in the SEC Office of the Whistleblower, which oversees the agency’s new program to financially reward people who provide evidence of securities fraud.


Get a handle on cost to produce

We need to get a better idea of what it costs to produce what we sell. We don’t do enough to manage those costs. What can you suggest?

Thoughts of the Day: Managing cost to produce is one of the most important activities any organization can decide to tackle. Establish measures to analyze. Assign someone to do the tracking. Figure out industry standards. Your company exists to produce and deliver goods and services that your customers purchase. The goal is to understand and find ways to control and reduce costs while focusing on optimally profitable customers and goods to sell. A good understanding of components can also help the company manage as inflation creeps into an economy recovering from recession. Industry standard measures to track and analyze: • COGS % = Cost of Goods Sold / Revenue; include all costs to produce and deliver, including shipping, labor and materials. I recommend also analyzing sales commissions as a variable cost, but not sales salaries, which are fixed and have no direct relationship to whether the product or service is sold. • Cost of Labor / Revenue and Cost of Materials / Revenue help identify which sub-component is going up or down. • Inventory Turns improves cash flow and reduces risk of obsolete and lost parts. The simplest formula = (COGS total for a year) / (Average Inventory for a year). Establish that formula for a given period and watch how it moves as you add and drop months. • Days to Clear Inventory = Turns / 365 days, gives you an idea of how many days inventory sits before being used. Per unit analysis will help on a more granular level: • Cost / unit produced helps evaluate pricing and production = (COGS including commissions) / (units produced) • Contribution / unit tells about selling margin = (selling price – variable cost to produce) / (units produced). • Transportation / unit, Fuel / unit, Labor / unit, Material / unit, etc. reveal trends that impact overall profit. • Breakeven output = company’s fixed costs (overhead) / cost per unit produced, tells you how many components you have to produce to cover your costs. Profit / customer by product and overall will help direct future sales efforts. Accurate data is key. Tracking data is

usually assigned to finance even though the data is coming from operations. Two groups within the organization, looking at the same data from different points of view, can lead to productive debate, ability to spot more trends and more ideas about what to do when a concern arises. Controlling inventory is challenging for most companies. Inventory is constantly on the move from supplier to storage to installation before being charged to customers. Most accounting systems have modules that allow bar code readers to scan inventory in and out. A policy that suppliers will not be paid without a purchase order and scan provides control over parts. Audit of POs vs. customer invoices reduces missed items. Analyze costs as trends over time to

identify when changes are happening. Graph out the data to make trends easier to see. Meet regularly to review and discuss what the graphs are saying and compare that to issues and obstacles in operations and sales. Look for seasonal variations, as well as overall economic changes. For example, if gas spikes, overall Cost of Goods Sold might not go up a lot because fuel is such a small part of the total. But transportation/unit and fuel/unit would spike indicating that a fuel surcharge is in order. Every industry has benchmarks for standard measures, for example: COGS% total, material, labor; Turns; and Days to Clear Inventory. Get the benchmarks and compare how your company is doing. Once you

Profits take back seat to hiring

either a consumer spending slowdown nor the threat of the fiscal cliff stopped R.C. Bigelow Inc. from selling more than 1.6 billion cups of tea in 2012. It now falls on companies like the familyowned, Fairfield-based tea manufacturer to make up for the economic slack, says Cindi Bigelow, president of R.C. Bigelow, which does business as Bigelow Tea. “We’re very committed to our employees,” she said. “There are areas where we do have

more employees than we need. But I always say if we see that that employee is really dedicated to this organization and to making a difference ... they have a lot of leeway in our company.” Bigelow said the company is currently hiring, after adding employees last year. “We’re having a very good year – luckily, we’re up about 10 percent. But we always try to emphasize that in good times and bad times, you always need to run your business the same; you always need to be fiscally strong,” Bigelow said. “We would be hiring in bad times as well, if we see there’s a need we need to be filling to help drive this company.”

By and large, business owners share Bigelow Tea’s commitment to the employees, but the economy has slowed down the pace of new hires in Fairfield County, said Andrew McGrade, managing director and market investment director of U.S. Trust. “As it relates to the Fairfield County business owner, I think they have been holding back somewhat,” said McGrade, who works out of the Greenwich, Stamford and Westport offices of U.S. Trust, part of the global wealth and investment management unit of Bank of America Corp. “But we think they’re really getting ready to turn the corner.”

A survey of hundreds of high-net earners from across the country conducted by U.S. Trust last year shows a majority of employers feel a responsibility to increase hiring and to keep people employed, even at the expense of profits. Among the business owners who responded to the survey, 72 percent said they feel a responsibility to create jobs and 76 percent said they feel an obligation to keep people employed even if it means lower profits. Slightly more than half of the business owners who responded said they have started, acquired and/or made substantial investments to expand their business since 2008. “Some of the caution over the recent period has probably been driven by the fact that they’re wanting to do very well by and have a paternal attitude almost toward existing employees,” McGrade said. Hiring a new worker, he said, “is like adding someone to the family.” McGrade said he feels business conditions are improving and that the pace of growth in the region will likely be dictated by the markets’ impressions of “how we’re doing on fiscal policy reform.” Addressing the debt ceiling and government spending in a constructive manner “might add a percent to a percent and a half to U.S. (gross domestic product) growth,” McGrade said. He added that a failure to do so could represent a 1 to 2 percent drag on GDP growth. Morgan Stanley is “cautiously optimistic” that equities markets will continue to be bullish in 2013, said Peter Chieco, senior vice president of Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management in Greenwich. “Morgan Stanley feels that you’ll see a slowdown in the first-quarter gross domestic product because of the (2 percent) payroll tax increase ... which we think could bring GDP down in the first quarter closer to the 1 percent area,” Chieco said. “We are still expecting a 2 to 2.5 percent GDP increase for the year.”

German school looks to expand enrollment BY SAM BARRON sbarron@westfairinc.com

T

he German School New York, or Deutsche Schule New York, is looking to add a few good jungen. Or mädchen. The school at 50 Partridge Road in White Plains is in discussions with the city about increasing its enrollment cap of 375 students to 500 incrementally over a five-year period. “We keep bumping up against the cap,” Administrator Edward Schlieben said. “We are the only school between Montreal and Washington, D.C. that offers a German education. We will not be able to accommodate the needs of German families.” The school is also interested in purchasing a five-lot subdivision at 800 North St. that would help mitigate a traffic increase from the expanded enrollment, and had plans to meet with the city’s planning board Jan. 15 to review the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the subdivision and the Special Permit Application for increased enrollment. Elizabeth Chetney, planning commissioner for the city of White Plains, said the

FEIS is being reviewed by city agencies, but could not offer a timetable since the FEIS has not been officially completed. The school is partially funded by the German government and teaches a curriculum that could be found in schools in Berlin, Moosburg or Munich. Students include German, Swiss and Austrian expatriates whose parents work for German corporations in the tristate area. The school also enrolls German students who live in the area and English-speaking students whose parents want them to have a German education. Schlieben said the 375-student cap was applied arbitrarily after a spontaneous negotiation between the city zoning board of appeals and the school in 1988, as the school was expanding to have a full high school and building a gymnasium. Originally the school only had students from first to fourth grade. No traffic studies or environmental impact studies were done before the cap was put in place. Schlieben said that the cap places extra stress on families, as they come to the

United States not knowing if there is space for their child at the school. “When you are bringing your children over, having a school is a very critical piece,” Schlieben said. “Being put on a waiting list does not give them much assurance. These families do their planning six months in advance.” At the German School, one-third of teachers and administrators are sent over by the German government and are fully licensed and certified in German education. The school also has teachers hired locally,and has become more bilingual, with some classes offered in English. The school is accredited and meets the standards of the New York Board of Regents. The primary grades feature American students, whose parents feel they benefit from learning a foreign language and culture before transferring out to an English high school. “It’s really a seamless transition,” Schlieben said. “The residual benefits of those early years can stay with you through college.” The school offers AP classes, American history, and like many typical American schools, a field trip to Washington, D.C.

“It’s really a bicultural experience for students,” Schlieben said. “It allows everyone to feel at home.” Schleiben said that White Plains is an ideal location for German families. Several German companies like BMW and Mercedes-Benz are located in Montvale, N.J., and there are pharmaceutical companies and Swiss banks based in Fairfield County. Parents who work in diplomacy or banking are often in Manhattan. “It’s the one location that is 45 minutes to an hour from everywhere in all directions,” Schlieben said. Another pre-K through 12th grade bilingual school in Westchester County, The Franco-American School of New York (FASNY), with locations in Larchmont, Scarsdale and Mamaroneck, is looking to operate at 400 Ridgeway on the site of a former golf course. Its proposal has been met with protests and an active campaign against the school, citing concerns about increased traffic. The county is also home to a school for Japanese students, Keio Academy, in Purchase. WCBJ • January 21, 2013

New Jewish school offers affordable alternative to rising tuition costs

BY TARICE L.S. GRAY tgray@westfairinc.com

A

solution to the growing problem of educational affordability in Westchester is on the horizon. The Westchester Torah Academy, a modern Orthodox Yeshiva day school, is opening in September in New Rochelle. For many families, it’s about time. Many Jewish parents and grandparents have been suffering from the increasing cost burden of tuition for a Jewish day school. The Orthodox Union (OU), a Jewish religious and service-based organization headquartered in New York City, released a report toward the end of 2011 titled “Summit on the Affordability of Jewish Education.” According to OU, the problem is the average cost of Jewish day school tuition for grades K-12 is $15,000 per year, and in the New York metro area, that number can exceed $20,000. Compare that to the average Catholic school that charges $3,673 in yearly tuition for a primary school student, according to the National Catholic Educational Association. The OU report acknowledged the problem of affordability and shared action steps, such as engaging Jewish federations, foundations

and philanthropists and reaching out to synagogues for support. That’s exactly what the founders of Westchester Torah Academy (WTA) did. They approached the Temple Israel in New Rochelle and found a cost-effective home for the school, which helps them be able to offer tuition at $10,000 per student. Kevin Shacknofsky, WTA president, said the high cost of tuition has been a problem for families for nearly a decade. “The average Orthodox family has three to four kids, so you’re paying sometimes $23,000 for three to four kids. It’s not affordable unless you’re a wealthy person. So we thought there was a need to create a school that the average family could afford.” Shacknofsky and Head of School Rabbi Rami Strosberg worked with a small group of committed members of the Jewish community to launch the school. Strosberg, who currently serves as Head of School at the Hebrew Academy of the Capital District in Albany, said in the moderate Orthodox community, the cost burden doesn’t just have a negative impact on families but the schools as well. “School is so expensive they have to put a lot of burden on financial aid,” said

Strosberg. “And the schools have a hard time operating because of that.” He added that dependency forces institutions into large fundraising campaigns to make ends meet. “You have to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for capital campaign,” he said. That cycle weighs down the system, and families end up losing out on the educational options Jewish day schools provide, said Strosberg. At WTA, Strosberg said, “Torah text will be learned in the original Hebrew Biblical script and Hebrew language will be a spoken language. Half the day the children will be learning Judaic studies in Hebrew such as Torah and Prayer and the other half they will be learning general curriculum like, math, science, and social studies, English literature.” WTA, which is open to Orthodox Jewish families, had a blueprint. The problem of accessibility to sustainable and affordable education within the Jewish community is a national problem, but Shacknofsky and Strosberg didn’t have to venture too far to find a worthy model. The Yeshivat He’Atid in Bergen County, N.J. has been called a great example of a Jewish day school. The school, which opened this past fall, championed the idea of offering lower tuition for families and

promoting a blending learning institution. The WTA offers the same educational setup. Blended learning is a combination of face-toface and online educational instruction. WTA adopted the innovative model because it works best for high-quality, sustainable and affordable education. Shacknofsky said the operating cost of the school will be covered by tuition, “then we have donors who cover the rest.” He said the model is set up so that the school will be self-sustaining once attendance reaches roughly 100 students. As it stands, the school has 70 children enrolled in the pre-K, kindergarten, and first grade classes they currently offer. They hope to add a grade per school year until they can become a K-8 school as interest continues to grow. At an open house last fall, 200 people attended to learn more about the Jewish day school option which makes Shacknofsky optimistic about the school’s future. “Those of us who’ve been chipping away and researching have found this model has shown dramatic improvement in children’s educational performance.” And, he noted, that’s what families ultimately want – “their kids to excel.”

‘Living classroom’ offers undergrads unique environmental studies experience BY TARICE L.S. GRAY tgray@westfairinc.com

A

n environmental education for undergraduate students is emerging as not only a unique educational experience but a “life-changing” one. That’s what students have said about the River University. The Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries, a subsidiary of Clarkson University, offers an interdisciplinary program in ecology, engineering and policy dedicated to the Hudson River,

which they believe is a living classroom. Students have the opportunity to sail for three days onboard the sloop Clearwater, which folksinger Pete Seeger made famous. River University had students from Bard, Bryn Mawr, and Oberlin colleges, RPI and Stony Brook University participate in the summer 2012 program. John Cronin, a course instructor for the living classroom, said, “The Hudson River cannot be rivaled as a living laboratory for ecological discovery, and a multidisci-

plinary classroom for experiential learning.” He added, “Our summer students in River University are leaders-in-training. Through our hands-on courses they learn the innovations in law and policy, science and technology, even culture and art, that make the Hudson, and all rivers, the greatest inspiration for and testimony to modern American environmentalism.” Cronin, the Beacon Institute Fellow at Clarkson University, has earned the title “Hero for the Planet” as designated by

Time Magazine for his work as former Hudson Riverkeeper. As a lecturer, he has been quoted telling students, “If the twentieth century was the era of environmental brawn, the twenty-first century is the era of environmental brains.” Courses at River University are set in the environment to expand student’s minds beyond the classroom walls. They are taught on the banks of the Hudson River in Beacon by Clarkson faculty. In addition to Cronin, Shane Rogers, assistant professor of civil environmental engineering at Clarkson, is an instructor, as well as Tom Langen, associate professor of biology and psychology. The program has two courses, each worth three credits toward a degree: Life of an American River: Ecology, Policy and Place allows students to explore river function and gain familiarity with organisms and natural communities of the Hudson River watershed. It’s designed to help students better understand how humans impact rivers, and how that impact can be diminished. Our Water Future: Sustainable Water Resource Management encourages experiential learning and a hands-on approach for students to focus on engineering and policy as it relates to the relationship between land and water uses and sustainability of water resources. Students are also able to assess and critique water management, planning, and policy on a local scale, and further provide recommendations to improve water sustainability. Students of any major can complete the River University program. The intensity of the schedule coupled with the individual attention each student is poised to receive restricts enrollment: Only 20 students can be allowed into River University at a time. The program premiered last summer with eight students. Some said the opportunity changed their perception of the world and they were encouraged by the information they learned about water quality and the work that could be done to improve it. Timothy F. Sugrue, Beacon Institute’s president and CEO, said, “Students today have a sense of urgency when it comes to protecting the environment. Giving them the tools of ecology, engineering and policy to build an understanding of how humans interact with a living system like the Hudson River, we accelerate the process with experiential learning. That direct connection ignited a fire for students this summer. In 2013, we will build on that success.” Student enrollment for the course is open until March 15. The program will run from June 10-28.

On campus, he’s the nation’s duke of entrepreneurs BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

L

ikely he will not supplant Coach K – the “K” you see but don’t hear in Krzyzewski – and his Blue Devil basketball stars in the idolizing hearts and minds of classmates, but Bryan Silverman returned to his freshman studies at Duke University this month as a certified BEOC. Big Entrepreneur on Campus, that is. The university even gave him a shoutout for his singular national achievement on its Facebook page. Last summer I met 19-year-old Bryan, then a Durham-bound graduate of Blind Brook High School, and his 22-year-old brother Jordan, a recent graduate of the University of Michigan, at their family’s home in Rye Brook. In the basement workout room, they had set up an office workstation for their highly novel startup business. “I was sitting in the bathroom one day,” Jordan told me, describing a moment of entrepreneurial inspiration in Ann Arbor. That is how the story begins when you are a philosophy major gazing upon a blank scroll in the men’s room and your business that has brought a curious journalist to your door is one called Star Toilet Paper. Advertising on toilet paper: it had not been done, or at least not so successfully or so earnestly as to have left a historical record on Google or a patent on file in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, until the Silverman brothers did it. A captive audience of consumers – brilliant! Scrolling through retailers’ discount coupons bar-coded for scanning over that ever-present smartphone and redemption online – brilliant! Ads printed in anatomically and environmentally friendly soy-based ink – what a relief! “Don’t Rush, Look Before You Flush” – what a cheeky company slogan! It translates well to T-shirts for that vast forever-irreverent-youth market. I confess my thirtysomething son wears one now, a walking advertisement and conversation starter for Star Toilet Paper in Chicago. Thanks, Pops, what a great Christmas gift! So it was that the Silvermans rolled out their business in Ann Arbor and here in Westchester among advertisers willing to pay one-half cent per ad on a toilet paper sheet and willing too to gamble on a new medium that might leave many advertisers squeamish. Pita Pit. Smoothie King. Ben & Jerry’s. Just Baked, a chain of Michigan cupcake shops. They dared to go where others would not dare to reach a

literate customer. And so it was that Entrepreneur Magazine in December named Bryan Silverman its College Entrepreneur of 2012. The $5,000 award that came with the honor and a feature profile in the magazine’s December issue likely will be used to improve their company website, Bryan told me while back home in Westchester on semester break. It was a break too from his extracurricular activity: opening a new, ripe market for Star Toilet Paper in another open-minded, venturesome college community. He has placed their recycled paper rolls in a blues and ribs joint and a popular sports bar in Durham. About 15 advertisers in Blue Devil country have signed on for the brothers’ bold experiment in soy-based ink. “When I have to make calls, the dorm isn’t really a good place to do that,” said the BEOC. DUhatch, a student business incu-

bator on campus, “is a good place for that.” There’s little time for beer pong for this freshman. Bryan said he works 30 to 35 hours a week on Star Toilet Paper business. “To me, it’s just my thing,” he said, learning outside the lecture halls and campus library “a business you can’t really learn unless you go out and do it. The more hours I put in, the more enjoyable it is.” All that while starting coursework for his declared major in neuroscience. “Neuroscience is stranger than the toilet paper industry,” Bryan gleefully declared. Don’t rush, think about that before you flush from memory. Their business has grown to about 70 advertisers. Jordan Silverman since October has been commuting from Rye Brook to shared office space for entrepreneurs at Sunshine Suites in Manhattan’s NoHo neighborhood. He has hired two employees. Jordan puts in 12-hour days

there, said his kid brother. “He comes home tired and he comes home exhausted,” Bryan said. “But he loves exactly what we’re doing. He wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.” The brothers are focused now on regional and national retail chains – among them, movie theaters and restaurants – as venues in which to place their ad scrolls. That would help them place larger bulk orders with their paper and print suppliers and reduce operating costs. They are also looking for investors to help cover their manufacturing and printing costs. “Advertisers seem to love it,” he said of their toilet paper medium. In Westchester, you will find their novel product at the Port Chester-Rye Brook Public Library. “People should definitely go check it out,” said the College Entrepreneur of 2012.
