Victims of rail crash identi�ied BY JOHN GOLDEN

SIX DISPARATE LIVES — from a museum curator to a financial analyst — ended in a fiery collision on the Metro-North Railroad tracks the night of Feb. 3 just north of the Valhalla station. The accident occurred at the rail crossing on Commerce Street next to the Taconic State Parkway when a Mercedes-Benz SUV was stopped on the tracks and was struck by a northbound commuter train. The SUV driver was Ellen Brody, a 49-year-old Edgemont resident. Her daughter, Danielle Brody, is a reporter at the Westchester County Business Journal. She began work at this » CRASH, page 17

THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF YONKERS-BASED nonprofit Systems and Abilities Inc. was accused by the state attorney general’s office of rigging bids, demanding kickbacks and defrauding Medicaid of more than $50,000. Darlington Odidika, 47, of Poughkeepsie, was released on $25,000 bail Feb. 4 after appearing in Yonkers City Court. The arrest comes nearly four years after a state commission detailed Odidika’s scheme to defraud the Medicaid program at the nonprofit. In that 42-page report, the state Commission on Quality of Care and Advocacy for Persons with Disabilities found that Odidika had submitted inflated costs for reimbursement, manipulated the bidding process through collusion and falsified documents to receive higher reimbursements from Medicaid. The nonprofit was an enrolled provider in the Nursing Home Transition and Diversion Program, specializing in obtaining state-funded service contracts that provide construction and moving services to the elderly and disabled Medicaid recipients to allow them to move from nursing homes back into the community. As part of the program, “the

Cabaret law changes proposed White Plains clubs would have to close at 1 a.m.

BY LEIF SKODNICK lskodnick@westfairinc.com

YOU WON’T BE TWISTIN’ THE night away to the dulcet tones of Sam Cooke – or any other artist – past 1 a.m. in White Plains if new cabaret rules pass the Common Council.

Damon Amadio, the city’s building commissioner, has prepared a proposal to amend the city’s cabaret law. The amendments would force the establishments to close at 1 a.m. and would bar them from charging an admission fee, or cover charge, and busi-

Biz Fed report: Small businesses have trouble getting loans

WESTCHESTER COUNTY

BUSINESS JOURNAL

our branches of the Federal Reserve Bank have jointly released findings from their annual small-business credit surveys. The Joint Small Business Credit Survey Report, produced from data compiled by the Federal Reserve branches in Atlanta, Cleveland, New York and Philadelphia, revealed varied demand for credit across businesses grouped by size, as well as significant difficulty for smaller businesses. The survey split small businesses into four categories. It defined businesses with less than $250,000 in revenue as microbusinesses, while small businesses were defined as having revenues between $250,000 and $1 million. Midsize firms have between $1 million and $10 million in revenue, and commercial firms have revenues greater than $10 million. Funding continues to be difficult to obtain for firms in the microbusiness and small-business categories, with 52 percent of microbusinesses and 50 percent of small businesses surveyed reporting they received none of the financing they had applied for. Another 11 percent of microbusinesses and 10 percent of small businesses got less than half of the financing they sought. “One reason is that these businesses don’t have an established credit history,” said John Tolomer, CEO of The Westchester Bank, about small businesses that get denied loans. “Sometimes these newer businesses aren’t as experienced at telling the whole story.” The whole story, Tolomer said, means a business has to show where primary and secondary sources of funds to repay a loan would come from. From an academic perspective, Matthew Carey, the director of the Center for Financial Market Studies at Iona College in New Rochelle, said he does not find the results surprising. “Nascent businesses always have trouble, and it’s always tougher because it’s not balance sheet or cash-flow lending,” Carey said. Sixty percent of midsize businesses received all the funding they applied for, and 70 percent of commercial businesses got all the funding for which they applied. Just 20 percent of commercial businesses and 14 percent of midsize businesses applied for credit and received no funding. The smaller businesses received funding from small regional and community banks

more often than larger banks. “Online lenders and computerized loan applications use algorithms,” Tolomer said. He noted that small-business customers often had face-to-face relationships with small regional and community banks, better enabling them to “tell the story” and get the funding they sought from those sources. Larger business had greater demand for credit than smaller businesses. While 22 percent of firms overall reported applying for credit in the first half of 2014, there was considerably weaker demand among firms with less revenue. Only 18 percent of microbusinesses applied for credit, while 30 percent each of small businesses and midsize firms applied. In contrast, 58 percent of commercial firms sought credit. The survey, which provides information on the business conditions and financing needs of small businesses from a 10-state coverage area, also showed that more than half of the businesses that applied for credit were looking for less than $100,000, and that 72 percent sought less than $250,000. For firms seeking financing, almost 40 percent of the firms surveyed said the primary purpose for the funding sought was to expand their business. Small firms primarily turn to large national and regional banks for financing, but almost one in five applicants applied to an online lender in the first half of 2014. Approval rates were highest at large and

small regional banks and online lenders. Of firms that applied to a small regional or community bank, 60 percent were approved for at least some of the financing sought. “Banks went through 15 years of consolidation, and that took the focus off the smaller end of the market,” Carey said. “The big banks made the decision that it’s not a profitable segment, so they put their balance sheets to work on the higher end. Lending to that segment takes time, it’s difficult to automate, and they are constantly monitoring the credit.” In the near term, Carey said he sees alternative lenders like OnDeck Capital and Lending Club filling the void for lending options for small businesses. “When you see companies like OnDeck and Lending Club gearing up to go public, they see an opportunity,” Carey said. “They’ll concede the high end market to the banks, because they’re not after that market.”

Con Ed proposes rate hike for businesses, residents

estchester residents and businesses that receive electric and gas service from Consolidated Edison might be paying more for their utilities next year. The utility company, which provides gas and electric service to residents and businesses in New York City and Westchester, has filed with the state Public Service Commission for an average 3.2 percent rate hike that would take effect in 2016. Con

Edison hopes to raise $368 million in revenue with the increased rates. Con Ed would use the revenue raised from higher rates to help support system reliability, better technology and online service enhancements, the company said. It would be the company’s first rate increase since April 1, 2012. “This plan will adequately fund investment for the enhanced security, reliability and resiliency of the electric delivery sys-

tem,” said Craig Ivey, Con Ed president, in a press release announcing the filing. “It also is designed to support better service through an improved website with greater mobile functionality and an expanded menu of self-service transactions, increasing accessibility for customers. We want to implement new programs and technologies while mitigating the impact on customer bills.” According to information released by

Con Ed, a typical bill for a Westchester residential customer using 450 kilowatthours per month would rise from $114.98 to $119.68, a 4.1 percent increase. For a typical commercial customer using 10,800 kilowatt-hours per month with a peak demand of 30 kilowatts, the monthly bill would rise from $2,173.08 to $2,236.71, a 2.9 percent increase. — Leif Skodnick

Anthem targeted by hackers HEALTH INSURER ANTHEM INC. RECENTLY said hackers broke into a database containing personal information for tens of millions of customers and employees in what is considered the largest data breach involving a major U.S. health insurer. The nation’s second largest health insurer said the breach didn’t involve medical information or financial details such as credit card or bank account numbers. But the attackers gained unauthorized access to information such as names, birthdays, medical IDs, social security numbers, street addresses, email addresses and employment information, including income and salary data. Anthem, which offers coverage in Westchester County, said it immediately reported the attacks to the FBI and retained Mandiant, a cybersecurity firm, to evaluate its systems and identify ways to prevent future breaches. The Wall Street Journal reported the number of customers affected could be as many as 80 million. “I want to personally apologize to each of you for what happened, as I know you expect us to protect your information,” said Joseph R. Swedish, Anthem’s president and CEO, in a statement. “We will continue to do everything in our power to make our systems and security processes better and more secure, and hope that we can earn back your trust and confidence in Anthem.” Anthem is offering free credit monitoring and identity protection services for those who have been affected. It reported the impacted brands/plans include Anthem Blue Cross, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Empire Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Amerigroup, Caremore, Unicare, Healthlink and DeCare.

Food Bank for Westchester, hunger coalition join forces BY LEIF SKODNICK lskodnick@westfairinc.com

H

oping to streamline and strengthen their charitable efforts, two of Westchester’s major charities that focus on feeding the hungry have merged. Officials with the Food Bank for Westchester and the Westchester Coalition for the Hungry and Homeless Inc. signed an agreement merging the nonprofit organizations Jan. 30 at a ceremony at Food Bank headquarters in Elmsford. The agency, which was founded in 1988, is one of eight regional food banks in New York state and provides about 6.1 million meals to the hungry in Westchester County each year, according to Food Bank Executive Director Ellen Lynch. “In Westchester in particular, it’s really easy to deny (that people deal with hunger),” Lynch said. The 6 million meals per year only cover about 40 percent of the meals needed to feed the hungry in the county, she said. “The overall gap, after government assistance, is about 15.1 million meals, so we’ve got a ways to go.” The Westchester Coalition for the Hungry and Homeless, also formed in 1988, is moving its operations to Food Bank headquarters. The coalition consists of 141 food providers

throughout the county directly serving residents, including 72 food pantries, 38 soup kitchens and 31 shelters. Its activities include advocating for hunger relief, and working to obtain financial support for programs and providing technical support. “We’re now going to be able to accomplish our missions collectively, to create the economies of scale, make a greater impact, and be more efficient in everything we do from gathering food to rallying community partners and galvanizing people around the county to look at the need and address it,” Jeanne Blum, former executive director of the coalition, told the Business Journal following the ceremony. Blum will serve as vice president of strategic partnerships and advocacy for the Food Bank for Westchester. “My role as an advocate for strategic partnerships will enable us to build our capacity so that we can push for policy change and get more of our government leaders on board with us,” Blum said. As government budgets for social services that help those in need continue to be cut, nonprofit organizations will have to do more to fill the gap, which for the hungry in Westchester County amounts to about 9 million meals a year. “The taxpayers that make government

happen don’t have the wherewithal to just give money out to every well-intentioned organization and well-intentioned idea,” Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino said. “The shrinking government dollars that go out to nonprofits for their efforts, that was a key driver behind the merger,” Blum said. “Why have two operating budgets? Combine it so that we can feed more people, so that we can address the issue.” Rick Rakow, chairman of the Food Bank’s board of directors, said the cost savings of the merger will be significant. “The resources that the county is making available to this merged organization will allow us to serve everybody in our community so much better,” Rakow said at the ceremony. “The funds that were previously dedicated to things like administrative costs are now going to come in and allow us to purchase what’s going to average out to 250,000 meals.” Lynch said the Food Bank’s 2012 move into the Elmsford distribution center, a 37,000-square-foot facility with the county’s largest refrigerator and freezer, has helped the organization provide more food to the nearly 200,000 Westchester residents who are in need over the past few years.

“When you get offered a bulk donation, you have to put it somewhere,” Lynch said, using the example of a truckload of frozen chicken. “If we have to sit around trying to find someone to split the truckload with us because we have no place to put it, by the time we find that guy, the chicken’s gone.” “Now we can take those big donations when the opportunities come up,” she said. “You have to be able to take the help. We want to do more and more of that and leverage the resources that are available, and with the coalition joining us, we have more time and more ability to focus on that.” Winter is the toughest season for the hungry, Lynch said, due to seasonal employment losses, higher utility bills and the holidays, which create financial issues that often put people at risk of hunger. Another measure of need, Lynch said that 25,000 school children in Westchester County get free or reduced-price lunch every day. Blum and Lynch, having joined forces, hope to see that number, along with the 15.1 million meals needed annually to feed Westchester’s hungry, drop significantly. “We live in one of the most affluent counties in America,” Blum said. “We need to make people aware that poverty and hunger exist in Westchester County and can’t go unnoticed.”

nonprofit often arranged for contractors to provide modifications to the homes of qualified Medicaid recipients through a required bid process and then billed Medicaid for the cost of the project, plus an administrative fee, based upon the final costs of the projects,” according to a statement by the attorney general’s office. Between Aug. 31, 2009, and Nov. 30, 2011, Odidika “frequently falsified bids for NHTD program projects and submitted them to agents of the Department of Health. By falsifying these bids, Odidika was able to control which contractor won the bid. He then used the falsified bid to inflate the amount Medicaid paid Systems and Abilities as its share of the project,” according to the office. The 2011 investigation by the state commission came in response to anonymous allegations that the nonprofit misused Medicaid funds and that its services were provided by “unqualified staff.”

Cabaret — From page 1

that have applied for cabaret licenses but have seen the licensing process put on hold since the summer. The Common Council put a moratorium on the issuance of cabaret licenses in July. Shortly after it was enacted, Amadio told the Business Journal the moratorium would give the city time to codify regulations that were typically written into each cabaret’s operating permit. Amadio said that if cabaret law is updated, rules that previously were written into each license will be uniformly applied through the city ordinance. Jenkins, however, thinks the proposed changes go too far. “If the purpose is to run out every nightclub and restaurant on Mamaroneck Avenue, then this legislation is perfectly suited to do that,” Jenkins said. He said he has been in contact with many of the businesses on the avenue and that they are unanimously opposed to the proposed changes to the cabaret law. Daniel Coughlan, the owner of Coughlan Inc., which has operated a cabaret doing business as Coughlan’s, Prophecy and Coliseum for the past 10 years in White Plains, said live bands and DJs will disappear from the city’s nightlife if business owners can no longer charge admission. He said bringing in a DJ can cost a business from $250 to $25,000, and bands draw similar fees. “They have to charge admission to be able to afford to bring in bands or DJs,” Coughlan said. Bars and restaurants are “not going to ring up $50,000 or $15,000 or even $5,000

pockets with monies designated to help our most vulnerable citizens.” According to Schneiderman, Odidika also “demanded and received kickbacks” from an NHTD program project contractor. The kickbacks would ensure the contractor would get the job. With a kickback in hand, Odidika would then falsify any other bids to ensure this contractor won the bid, according to the attorney general. “Finally, Odidika filed claims in the transition program for moving expenses which were either never provided or significantly inflated over the actual costs,” according to Schneiderman. Odidika and Systems and Abilities were each charged with one count of seconddegree grand larceny, five counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, first-degree offering a false instrument for filing and 10 counts of firstdegree falsifying business records, all felonies. Odidika could face up to 15 years in prison if convicted on the top count.

The commission also took the board of directors to task for failing to set a reasonable salary for Odidika by “approving an employment contract with no upper limit on compensation and without regard to reviewing data on salaries and benefits paid to executives of comparable agencies.” In addition, the commission found that the board let Odidika be paid part of his salary as an independent contractor, which allowed required withholdings for social security taxes and disability insurance to be avoided. In its report, the commission made a number of recommendations underscored by the one that said the Health Department “should immediately terminate its contract(s) with Systems and begin to transition consumers to other providers.” In a written response to the report, the Health Department in regard to the termination of the contract said, “DOH has placed Systems and Abilities on Vendor Hold effective May 13, 2011. Further action will be taken if warranted.”

In June 2011, the commission and the state Office for People with Developmental Disabilities met with the nonprofit’s board to go over the findings in the report. The board in turn suspended Odidika until it completed its own investigation. It did not remove him from his position. In the report, the commission stated the board’s “lack of assertiveness raises the question as to what measures the state can take when a board of directors fails to act in the best interest of the corporation and its clients.” In announcing the arrest of Odidika on Feb. 4, Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman said, “Stealing from a program that enables seniors and the disabled to live at home and not in an institutional setting is deplorable. Those individuals who steal from this program not only steal from New York taxpayers but risk depriving others of the opportunity to live among loved ones in the comfort of their own communities. My office will vigorously pursue those individuals and companies who line their

at the bar.” In addition to enabling business owners to bring in entertainers, Coughlan said being able to take a cover charge helps draw a better crowd. “A cover charge draws people who come for more than just drinking, but to enjoy the entertainment,” he said. In Coughlan’s opinion, the 1 a.m. closing time is even more ominous for the city’s food and beverage businesses. “If the city did a 1 a.m. closing, more than half the restaurants on Mamaroneck Avenue would disappear within 24 months,” Coughlan said. “You’d see a drop in young professionals moving to White Plains because of that drop in the nightlife.” Under the current White Plains municipal code, a cabaret is a “place of public resort, accommodation, assemblage, entertainment or amusement, where refreshments of any kind are served for gain or profit, and where dancing, entertainments or exhibitions are given or permitted in connection therewith, or a place of public resort, accommodation, assemblage, entertainment or amusement where exhibitions or other forms of entertainment or amusement are given or conducted for gain or profit and dancing and serving of refreshments of any kind are permitted.” A voicemail left for Karen Pasquale, White Plains Mayor Thomas Roach’s senior adviser, seeking comment from Roach or Amadio about the proposed amendments was not returned. A message left with the White Plains Department of Building seeking comment from Amadio also was not returned.

ArtsWestchester launches ‘50 for 50’ campaign BY GEORGETTE GOUVEIA ggouveia@westfairinc.com

A

rts Westchester is capitalizing on its golden year with what it is calling “50 for 50.” • 50 artists recognized for their accomplishments in and beyond Westchester. • 50 new artist residencies serving the most disadvantaged students. • 50 new arts and business partnerships. Janet T. Langsam, CEO of the White Plains-based nonprofit arts council, launched the campaign Jan. 29 at a breakfast for about 100 of Westchester County’s movers and shakers at The Ritz-Carlton, Westchester. Among the upcoming events will be “ArtSee,” a festival of new work on view from March through July; “Crossing Borders” (March 14 to May 2), an exhibit exploring memory, identity and culture; and the Arts Awards 50 for 50 Luncheon (April 16), saluting 50 selected artists; along with the annual Arts Bash open house (May 15-16), golf tournament at

Wykagyl Country Club in New Rochelle ( June 15), Jazz Fest (Sept. 13-19) and gala fundraiser late in the year. Given the heavy hitters in attendance, however — they included County Executive Rob Astorino and developer Robert Weisz, CEO of the RPW Group — the focus was on ArtsWestchester’s partnership with local government and businesses like BNY Mellon, Consolidated Edison, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals and Wells Fargo. Much of the talk centered on corporate sponsorship of exhibits like last spring’s “STEAM,” which considered the role of the arts in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education with support from related companies such as ConEd and Regeneron. But Jean Marie Connolly, senior director at BNY Mellon, also touched on how her investment firm was able to use ArtsWestchester’s twostory galleries to enhance its corporate events. The tangible and intangible benefits of the arts were on the minds of others as well. “The reason the housing market is

so hot in Westchester — we can’t even get inventory — is that people want to live here,” Robert Weisz said. “We want to keep attracting corporations to the county, and the cultural life of the county is an important part of that.” ArtsWestchester has been an important part of the county’s cultural life — investing more than $35 million in arts and cultural programming, supporting

more than 1,300 artists and 300 cultural institutions and bringing arts into the classroom. And perhaps no one has been more important to Arts Westchester than Langsam. At the breakfast, she was hailed for her visionary leadership, although she took some affectionate ribbing from her “main squeeze,” Astorino. He described her as “a scooch, but in a good way.”

Schneiderman tells retailers to halt herbal supplement sales BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

N

ew York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman has called on four major retailers to stop selling some store-brand herbal supplements after an investigation by his office found the products could not be proven in DNA testing to contain the labeled substance or had ingredients not listed on the labels. Schneiderman in a press release said he sent letters Feb. 2 to GNC, Target, Walmart and Walgreens, calling on them to halt the

sales of popular supplements that include Echinacea, ginseng and St. John’s wort. The companies were asked to provide detailed information relating to the production, processing and testing of herbal supplements sold at their stores and to explain quality control measures in place. As part of an ongoing investigation of deceptive practices and advertising in the multibillion-dollar dietary supplements industry by the attorney general’s office, a Clarkson University professor in upstate New York used DNA barcode technology to identify plant species listed on the products’

labels. Investigators looked at three to four samples of six different store-brand herbal supplements purchased at stores across the state, including ones in Westchester County and Poughkeepsie. Of the tested products, 79 percent either showed no DNA related to the labeled content or were contaminated with other plant material, according to investigators. In many cases, unlisted contaminants were the only plant material found in the samples or no botanical substances of any kind were found. Among the unlisted ingredients were rice, beans, pine, citrus, asparagus, primrose,

wheat, houseplant, and wild carrot. Of the four retailers, Walmart had the poorest results in product testing. Only 4 percent of the big-box giant’s tested herbal products showed DNA from the plants listed on their labels, according to the attorney general’s office. “This investigation makes one thing abundantly clear: the old adage ‘buyer beware’ may be especially true for consumers of herbal supplements,” Schneiderman said in the press release. “The DNA test results seem to confirm long-standing questions about the herbal supplement industry. … At the end of the day, American corporations must step up to the plate and ensure that their customers are getting what they pay for, especially when it involves promises of good health.” David Schardt, senior nutritionist of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, said the test results show “that this loosely regulated industry is urgently in need of reform. Until then, and perhaps even after then, consumers should stop wasting their money.” Schneiderman, he said, “has done what federal regulators should have done a long time ago.” The attorney general’s office cited a 2013 study from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, which estimated there are about 65,000 dietary supplements on the market and more than 150 million Americans consume them.

Challenge 2015: Safe storage of client data

ow can the onslaught of headlines announcing yet another corporate data breach not compound the stress of preparing for another tax season? Thoughts of keeping a client’s sensitive personal information and financial records secure in the months leading up to “T-day” certainly weigh heavily on the minds of those who practice accounting. While firewalls and anti-virus software are starting points, they are no longer enough to ensure that financial data remain safe. As illustrated by data security breaches at national retail and banking giants over the past year, it may be getting harder for consumers to trust any business entity with which they have relationship. Nobody is exempt from a cybersecurity breach. Whether information is mistakenly backed up to an unsecured server, an encryption flaw arises or an internal threat strikes, accountants and their clients can easily find their highly sensitive information exposed. This unfortunate scenario results not only in lost time, income and productivity for the business, but possibly irreparable damage to a heretofore stellar reputation. So, what steps do accountants need to take to ensure that client data remains secure? Risk mitigation is critical. Part of mitigating risk lies is identifying what types of information need to be protected and where they will be stored. Interestingly, a 2013 survey by CPA2Biz, the American Institute of CPAs’ forprofit technology subsidiary, revealed that as cloud adoption rates across the industry continued to rise, 43 percent of firms surveyed were “somewhat confident” or “not confident at all” in cloud vendors’ ability to manage data breaches. That’s a 15 percent increase over 2012. So if you’re outsourcing your IT to a managed services provider, be sure they can meet both your cloud computing and your data security needs. Depending on the size of your firm and the number of clients, you may elect to house your data in an off-site data center. For many financial services companies — banks, accounting firms, mortgage brokers — this approach offers the right blend of redundancy, resiliency and monitoring. If you opt to use a data center, it is important to understand where your data will live and what is being done to protect it. On the physical side, this includes security guards, secure entry and 24/7 monitoring. On the virtual side, it involves intrusion detection, anti-virus applications, firewalls and data pathway security. Regarding physical structure, ask: Is the data center’s address publicly disclosed? Are there redundant power feeds? Is the data center built above the flood plain? Are there other tenants? How is

access monitored? For accounting firms transitioning from on-site to off-site data storage, the change can be nerve-wracking. Thus, it is critical to carefully screen prospective partners and choose the provider that can meet all of your current data storage, compliance and security needs and offer a scalable solution that will continue to meet your business needs well into the future. If an off-site data center solution isn’t TWB right for your firm, there is still plenty that Grant can be done to keep data safe within your WCBJ physical They key 7.375”space. w x 7.125” h is careful planning — starting with “what will be done to keep 2/3/15 data secure” and stemming to “how will we respond if a data breach occurs?” Let’s start with the physical space: Where will your server live? Does the room have

adequate cooling and backup power in place? How is the room secured? Next comes the pathway through which your data will travel: What has been done to secure the pathway? How will you ensure it remains secure? Who will monitor for intrusion? What is the process that will be followed if intrusion is detected? Lastly, in the era of “Bring Your Own Device,” consider how employees’ personal devices used for business will impact policies and processes. Should a data breach be detected, it is important that, by protocol, clients are informed about the incident and its impact in a timely manner and educated about the corrective measures being taken. Regardless of on-site or off-site data storage and security, having a comprehensive and up-to-date data security program in

Faros Properties, a Manhattan-based real estate investment firm that has made its mark as a new player in the Westchester and Fairfield markets in the last few years, has scored another notable deal with its $39.5 million sale of 555 Theodore Fremd Ave., the three-building, approximately 170,000-square-foot International Corporate Center at Rye. The sale price was 30 percent higher than that paid by the Faros team to acquire the property 3½ years ago. Faros with Gould & Co., its Boston-based partner in Faros Corporate Center Rye LLC, paid $30.3 million for the Rye property in 2011. At the time of that sale, the complex was more than 80 percent occupied. Faros Properties, which undertook a renovations project at the corporate center, reportedly had raised the tenant occupancy rate to 98 percent at the time of the recent deal. The identity of the glass-sheathed office center’s new owner has not been disclosed. The purchasing entity, Rye VS LLC, listed a Manhattan attorney, Fabrizio Grasso, as its agent when registering with the state Department of State last October. Grasso on the website of his law firm, Oberdier & Ressmeyer LLP, is said to primarily represent European companies and their U.S. affiliates in transactions. Richard Goldstein, president of Goldstein & Associates Realty Inc. in White Plains, represented the buyer. He did not respond to a request for comment on the deal from the Business Journal. Faros and the buyer reached a sale agreement last November, though the deed was not recorded with the Westchester County Clerk’s office until mid-January. REBusiness Online, a trade publication, first reported the deal in late November. The deal was brokered for Faros Properties by Holliday Fenoglio Fowler LP in New York, which also represented the landlord in its 2011 acquisition.

MIDLAND AVENUE BUILDING SOLD IN RYE Brokers at New York Commercial Realty Group in Harrison reported the sale this winter of 600 Midland Ave., a two-story, 30,000-square-foot office building on a nearly 8-acre site in Rye. The property was purchased by an undisclosed buyer for $6 million. New York Commercial Realty Group

principals Michael P. Rao and Frank M. Rao represented the buyer. The seller was represented by Christopher O’Callaghan, Ed Tonnessen and Mark Jacobs of Jones Lang LaSalle’s Stamford office.

RYE OFFICE BUILDING HITS FULL OCCUPANCY Joint-venture partners from Westchester and Fairfield counties recently announced they have fully leased 411 Theodore Fremd Ave., an approximately 112,000-square-foot office building in Rye. The building was 55 percent leased when purchased for $10.8 million in July 2012 by an ownership group that includes Baywater Properties of Darien, Conn., True North Management Group of White Plains, and WillKen Investments of Rye. The new owners did major renovations and added a new fitness center to the building. The owners signed 14 lease deals with tenants in the last 2½ years, including Regus Business Centers, US Alliance Federal Credit Union and Acadia Realty Trust. Jones Lang LaSalle, led by managing director and Rye resident Chris O’Callaghan, served as leasing adviser to the joint venture.

CBRE NAMED LEASING AGENT FOR ONYX EQUITIES PROPERTY The Westchester/Connecticut office of CBRE Group Inc. has been named exclusive leasing agent for 1311 Mamaroneck Ave. in White Plains, the brokerage company announced Feb. 3. New Jersey-based Onyx Equities LLC, in partnership with Siguler Guff & Co. LP, last August acquired ownership of the four-story, 325,600-square-foot property formerly known as Parker Corporate Center after a previous owner defaulted on a $52 million mortgage loan. Onyx has begun a $4 million renovation project that will include upgrades to common corridors, restrooms, the cafeteria and fitness facility and construction of a new conference facility, in addition to landscaping improvements on the 27-acre campus, according to CBRE. The CBRE team leading leasing of the Class A building includes David Block and Steven Greenbush, senior vice presidents, and Kevin McCarthy, vice president, in CBRE’s Stamford office.

MONROE COLLEGE RENEWS HOUSING LEASE Palladium Management LLC in Manhattan announced that Monroe College has renewed a master lease at Palladium’s apartment building at 21 Fountain Place near the Bronx-based college’s downtown campus in New Rochelle. Though the property has housed fulltime Monroe College students since 2001, the five-year master lease is the college’s first to include all 55 apartments in the building, a Palladium principal said.

ASK ANDI

BY ANDI GRAY

Instill order in sales to gain foresight The part of sales I’ve struggled with is tracking and getting control of what we should be doing. For all intents and purposes, forecasting is nonexistent. How do we start? THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: Knowing what is expected in sales can lead to predictable, profitable growth. Figure out how much of the year’s sales will likely roll in and how much business needs to be created. Tracking proposal priority is part of managing sales activity. A good customer relationship management system can be worth its weight in gold but needs a strong leader to implement. The goal of any well-run company is to

have predictable, profitable growth over a long period of time — years, not months. Revenue that is up some years but down others can destroy profits as the company constantly struggles to get ahead of the next change in direction. Make the goal big enough to stay ahead of inflation. Resist the temptation to take on too much growth at any one time. A good growth rate for most companies is 10 to 20 percent per year. Over time, at that rate, most businesses can double revenue and triple profit. Most companies experience rollover from one year to the next and repeat orders from existing clients that won’t take a lot of effort to bring on. Figure out how much of the annual goal for sales will come

easily, and how much has to be created from scratch. Set separate goals for each category: • Roll over from last year; • Existing clients likely to reorder with little or no prompting; • Existing and new clients with potential that has to be pursued; and • New clients that have to be found. Breaking sales down into these categories will help you scope the amount of effort that has to be put into sales for the upcoming year. Tracking proposal priority Keeping track of sales activity is essential. A spreadsheet to manage proposals can be invaluable. List all active prospects,

using columns and dates to indicate what stage they are at: information gathering, confirming needs, preparing a proposal, negotiating, closed or implemented. Put someone in charge of managing the activity in the proposal spreadsheet. That person needs to watch for a steady flow of prospects at every stage. Additionally, watch that prospects move steadily from one stage to the next. Anything that gets stuck is referred to management to look at why it’s stuck and if they can help get it moving. The person watching the proposal spreadsheet can also predict resources needed because they can see how the volume of activity flows through the sales pipeline. With practice the spreadsheet can turn into a tool to predict future sales, based on historical trends. In addition to a proposal spreadsheet, a customer relationship management, or CRM, system will provide valuable information regarding sales activities. Start simple. Assign someone responsibility for picking and implementing a CRM system. Make sure that person has the time, experience in sales, management skill and clout to get things done. Plan on taking six months to a year to fully implement the system. Learn to do the basics first. Start with scheduling activities and using the system to log all contacts, which can be the most immediately gratifying parts. Users find they can look up history and see an increasingly full calendar going forward. Get people to rely on the system for information on who is/has been contacted. Boost engagement because people see the value of what’s contained within. Give the leader of project authority to compel people to comply. Make sure your project leader has demonstrated ability to lead and train. It’s not the project for a rookie to cut their teeth on — it’s too important to the future of the company.

BY NORMAN G. GRILL

Strategy for getting a good loan

T

he success of your business loans should be no accident. Every financing arrangement you make needs to be a carefully planned strategic move with reasonably predictable results. While a lender must be picky about its borrowers, the same holds true for you choosing a lender. The key is to find the right fit so that external financing can serve a strategic purpose. From afar, the commercial lending process can appear comical. On one side you have the lenders, who want to manage their risk by loaning money to only successful business owners. On the other side, you have the business owners — many of whom believe they can’t truly become successful until they get the money.

To avoid this disconnect, you have to approach business financing as a partnership rather than a provider-customer relationship. If you were going into business with someone, you’d want to clearly understand his or her vision for your venture. It’s the same with lenders. Let’s say you’re asking for money because your company has become so far behind on vendor payments that it needs the working capital to catch up. In this scenario, you’ll need to make a case for how catching up on payments will allow you to get the raw materials needed to make a big push forward on sales. Or you might need the money to open a new location in a city nearby. Here you’ll have to produce some solid market analysis

that explains to the lender why your business stands a good chance of succeeding in a new locale. The bottom line: Before you ask for a loan, devise a clear plan for what you plan to do with the money and how you’ll repay it. You and your top managers should be able to verbally articulate your plan, but craft a written statement, too. The statement doesn’t need to be a 50-page proposal. It can be as short as one page as long as it clearly describes your strategic challenge, your plan for overcoming it, and where and how the lender’s money plays into this solution. As mentioned, every financing arrangement is a partnership. So you should be just as picky with your lender as that lender

is with your financials. If you have a longstanding relationship with a local bank, make that your first call. There’s no understating the importance of good communication and an amicable rapport when negotiating terms, making payments and dealing with whatever business complications may come up. But should your local bank not offer the size or scope of financing needed, or if you’d just like to get an idea of what else is out there, don’t hesitate to shop around. Look for a lender with multiple loan products so you have a better chance at structuring one to your liking. And get some referrals regarding the strength of service and support. If yours is a small business, check into the availability of Small Business Administration or other governmentbacked loan programs. These are often designed to boost local economies, so you may be able to get favorable terms and rates. Last but not least, don’t limit yourself to only traditional lenders. In today’s competitive lending environment, businesses have a variety of alternatives to consider. These include angel investors, online peer-to-peer lending networks and crowdfunding. This is the era of “big data.” Lenders are certainly active participants, keeping a keen eye on metrics that help accurately estimate risk of default. As you look for a loan, determine how each prospective lender will evaluate your default probability. Many lenders do so using spreadsheets that track multiple financial ratios. When one of these key ratios goes askew, a red flag goes up on their end — and should on yours as well. Bear in mind that not every lender may use ratio-based evaluative methods — or use them alone. Some use communitybased scoring, by which a selected group of finance professionals rate and review companies based on their payment histories. Others use proprietary commercial-scoring models that use creditor reports to develop credit scores for businesses. Ideally, you should never view external financing as a reactionary measure. Approach any business loan as a strategic move — not only in the planning stages, but also in the execution of the arrangement and while you’re repaying it.

Life Athletes. She was presented the Paul J. Tagliabue Award of Excellence last year, awarded to an NFL league or team executive who demonstrates the integrity and leadership Tagliabue exhibited in career development opportunities for minority candidates and advocacy for diversity on the league and club levels when he was NFL commissioner. “She loved her family, and all of us were able to spend time with her in these final days,” John Mara said in the statement. “All 11 of her children and our spouses and numerous grandchildren were with her when she passed away.”

NEW PRESIDENT AT AMALGAMATED COMPANY Amalgamated Family of Companies in White Plains announced the promotion of Julie O’Brien to president of AliCare Medical Management, an Amalgamated business that provides group care management programs. O’Brien formerly served as AliCare’s senior vice president and chief operating officer. A registered nurse and Massachusetts resident, O’Brien joined AliCare Medical Management in 2002 as an assistant vice president, rising to the COO post, where she oversaw all company operations at its New

Hampshire and Pennsylvania locations. David J. Walsh, president and CEO of Amalgamated Family of Companies, in the announcement said O’Brien in that role “has been vital to AMM’s impeccable reputation both within the care management field and within the broader markets it serves, from diverse businesses and unions to health care providers and managed care organizations. I expect nothing less than a continuation of her strong leadership as AMM’s new president.” — Leif Skodnick and John Golden

Ann Mara, a Rye resident and the matriarch of the family that founded the NFL’s New York Giants, died Feb. 1 at the age of 85. John Mara, Ann’s son and the team’s president and CEO, announced her death in a statement on the team’s website. “I am sad to say that our mother has passed away,” he said. “She has been the leader of our family in every way, and we will miss her dearly. She slipped in front of her home … during the ice storm two weeks ago. She had been in the hospital since the following day, initially due to a head injury she suffered in her fall. After a few days, we were hopeful for her recovery, although we knew it would be a long road back. Unfortunately, there were complications.” Ann Mara and her 11 children inherited 50 percent ownership of the Giants when her husband, Wellington Mara, died in 2005. The couple met at Mass at St. Ignatius of Loyola Church in Manhattan. The team, which was founded in 1925 by Wellington Mara’s father, Tim, was owned solely by the Mara family until 1991, when Robert Tisch bought 50 percent of the team from Wellington’s nephew, also named Tim. According to the statement on the Giants website, Mara attended nearly every home game for the past 60 years and was an ardent supporter of the team. Following the Giants victory in the 2012 NFC championship game, she famously chided Fox Sports analyst and former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw, telling him pointedly, “You never pick the Giants!” as he tried to interview Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz. As Mara walked away smiling, Bradshaw looked at the camera and smiled, saying, “I’m sorry, ma’am! I’m getting hammered for not picking the Giants!” Ann Mara was born to George and Olive Mumm in Manhattan on June 18, 1929, and was a prominent philanthropist, supporting Convent of the Sacred Heart, Inner-City Scholarship Fund, Boys Hope Girls Hope, the Ronald McDonald House and WCBJ | HV Biz

from Chappaqua to an unfamiliar location in Scarsdale, she got lost and stopped to ask for directions, her friend said. The accident occurred not long after she resumed her trip. Brody would have celebrated her 50th birthday next month, her grief-stricken friend said. Five train passengers died after the track’s electrified third rail, dislodged by the impact of the collision, penetrated the first car of the eight-car Train 659, engulf-

ing it in fire and smoke. They are: • Walter Liedtke, 69, of Bedford Hills, a curator and art historian at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan. • Eric Vandercar, 53, of Bedford, senior managing director and head of municipal funding at Mesirow Financial in Manhattan. • Joseph Nadol, 42, of New Castle, a managing director and aerospace and defense industries analyst at JPMorgan Chase & Co. in Manhattan.

• Robert Dirks, 36, of Chappaqua, a research scientist at D.E. Shaw Research in Manhattan. • Aditya Tomar, 41, of Danbury, Conn., a vice president for technology with JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s asset-management team in Manhattan, according to Bloomberg Business. Members of the National Transportation Safety Board were investigating the crash that is considered the deadliest in the railroad’s history.

OPEN HOUSE / MAR. 16 T H / 6:15 P.M.

A MOUNT VERNON RECYCLING PLANT is closing so its parent company can move the plant’s operations to Kearny, N.J. Twenty-seven workers at the Hugo Neu Recycling LLC plant at 518 Franklin Ave. will lose their jobs as a result of the move. The facility will close April 30, according to a notice filed with the state Department of Labor. The company, which recycles used and obsolete electronics, and reconditions stillusable electronics, recently won a $4.5 million, 10-year Grow New Jersey grant to relocate its operations to Kearny rather than Orangeburg. The new plant will be in the Kearny Point Industrial Park, a property owned by Hugo Neu Recycling’s parent company, and is expected to create 63 full-time jobs and provide a net economic benefit of $9.6 million to New Jersey over the next 20 years, according to the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.

Wellness center supports a passion for living BY GEORGETTE GOUVEIA ggouveia@westfairinc.com

O

nce upon a time, you went to the doctor when you were sick or needed an annual physical. Those days are gone. Now it’s all about taking a proactive approach to aging and preventing disease in a suite of offices that provides all the services needed to support your passion for living. “This is what patients are asking for,” Dr. Timothy Morley said. He’s the medical director of NY Health & Wellness Westchester, a new, 6,000-square-foot center that’s part of a modern white and glass building that stretches out along Mamaroaneck Avenue in Harrison. Morley’s background is in emergency medicine and he’s also certified in pain management. But along the way, he became interested in integrated approaches to antiaging and opened an office in Manhattan. Among his patients was Mitchell Suss, who became an advocate and the founding

CEO of New York Health & Wellness. Suss explained his passion for anti-aging medicine with an automotive analogy: “What the center is about is natural hormone optimization. Think of hormones as premium gas for people. … It’s so easy in today’s society to get in a hormone imbalance. We’re trying to balance the body naturally through stress reduction, fitness, nutrition and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.” Suss knows what you’re thinking: Hormone replacement therapy has been a hot-button issue ever since the 2002 Women’s Health Initiative study of women taking synthetic estrogen and progestin was suspended due to increased risks for breast cancer, heart attacks, strokes and blood clots. But bioidenticals are made from yam and soy extracts. “Molecule for molecule, they’re what your body makes,” Morley said. “They’re extremely safe if you do it right.” And that means proper testing and an extensive blood panel to see what, if any, hormones a perimenopausal or menopausal woman may need. (About 80 percent of

Morley’s patients are women, though he said men also go through the change of life, called andropause.) Hormonal imbalance resulting from the change of life is not the only problem Morley sees. “Many times when we do blood and urine analysis, we find that people have elevated levels of heavy metals, such as mercury, iron, lead or aluminum, among others. Heavy metals in the blood can cause hormone imbalance, extreme fatigue, allergic reactions, brain fog, problems losing weight, headaches, skin problems, frequent colds and low immunity.” Diet is the usual suspect. Morley said the average American eats 4 pounds of pesticides a year, including arsenic, which is present in things like chicken and rice. Supplements — up to 90 percent of which contain fillers — can also be a culprit. “It’s almost impossible to find fish oil that doesn’t contain some amount of mercury,” Morley said. To treat metal toxicity, Morley relies on chelation therapy.

“The therapy includes either oral or IV infusion of binding agents, which allows your body to eliminate the toxins. We continue the chelation until the blood work shows that the toxicity is gone.” Other patients might be exercising in a manner that causes them to gain weight instead of losing it. That’s where Lisa Avellino, the center’s fitness and movement therapist, comes in. Or patients may be gluten or lactose intolerant, which is where nutrition director Jacqui Justice steps in. (The other key members of the team are Nina Chaifetz, a licensed clinical social worker/certified holistic health counselor, and Carol Cummings, practice manager and clinical assistant.) “Everybody has a different specialty,” Avellino said. “We are experts as a team at creating customized programs.” “Our philosophy,” Suss said, “is to give the body what it needs.” This article was �irst published in WAG magazine, the Business Journal’s sister publication.

SPECIAL ECONOMIC REPORT DEVELOPMENT

Tech businesses partner with community colleges BY ANN RUBENZAHL AND JEANNE MALONEY

B

usinesses today are partnering with community colleges to meet their training and education needs. In a November report, the League for Innovation in the Community College wrote, “(As) the skills gap between those seeking employment and those seeking employees seems to be widening, community colleges have become” a resource to train “the local workforce.” Community colleges are helping advanced manufacturing companies, in particular, develop a talented workforce. “Technological developments in the manufacturing sector have outpaced workforce skills, and demographic shifts have combined to create a gap in the workforce the manufacturing sector needs,” concluded an October 2014 report by the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership, a national effort launched by President Barack Obama.

Addressing a need The report went on to recommend the implementation of “a system of nationally recognized, portable and stackable skill certifications that employers utilize in hiring.” A recent U.S. Department of Labor grant, the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grant program, funded such a system. In 2012, 11 proposals were funded across the U.S. through the program, including a $14.6 million consortium award to the State University of New York community colleges (submitted and administered by Monroe Community College in Rochester). The goal of the multiyear grant is to provide access to educational pathways that prepare individuals for industry-recognized credentials and careers in advanced manufacturing. Grant-supported programs leveraged dozens of industry partnerships and are training thousands across New York state. By the end of the second year, a total of 3,098 students had enrolled in a grant-eligible program. There are 13 SUNY campuses participating in the grant program, including Westchester Community College.

Hudson Valley and New York As a partner in the SUNY grant consortium, Westchester Community College created a pathway program to enable people with no manufacturing experience to gain basic

advanced manufacturing skills and multiple industry certifications, including National Institute for Metalworking Skills certificates. Those who complete the program are prepared for entry-level jobs in advanced manufacturing and, if qualified, they can continue their education to prepare for higher-level advanced manufacturing positions. Also in New York, the result of a public/private partnership with SUNY Albany and Hudson Valley Community College as key partners, upstate has given rise to “the site of the most advanced semiconductor manufacturing operations in the world and arguably the nation’s pre-eminent center of nanotechnology R&D,” according to the National Research Council Committee on Competing in the 21st Century. Hudson Valley Community College supports this nanotech initiative and the associated workforce needs by offering programs that provide the specialized knowledge and skills required for entrylevel positions in the semiconductor industry.

National trend San Antonio manufacturers recently partnered with the Alamo Colleges, a community college system, to focus on the workforce of the future by introducing high school juniors and seniors to manufacturing careers and higher education by completing an industrydriven curriculum in manufacturing skills. The program incorporates classroom instruction with hands-on learning in a stateof-the-art facility, and allows participating students to graduate from high school with up to 35 college credits, a National Career Readiness Certificate and the Production Technician Certification from the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council. Local manufacturers provided significant input into program design and curriculum and local industry groups offer paid job internships. San Antonio manufacturers recruit graduates for job opportunities in manufacturing production operations and facilities maintenance. In Virginia, Tidewater and Thomas Nelson community colleges partner with Northrop Grumman “to provide co-op experiences for community college students interested in computer-assisted design. Qualified students at these community colleges receive full tuition for an associate degree in computer-aided drafting and design technology or mechanical engineering technology … and

a paid co-op experience” from Northrop Grumman Corp.’s facilities, according to a Center for American Progress report. “After graduating, students are employed at NGNN with an average starting salary of $31,200.” Nationally, a consortium of 10 community colleges is working to narrow the gap between the skills companies need and those students are learning by developing five new training programs that colleges will be able to customize and replicate. The one-year certificate programs are in the high-demand STEM fields of composites, cybertechnology, electric-vehicle technology, environmental technology and mechatronics. Programs like the National STEM Consortium are considered key to bridging the skills gap as they develop training programs that are responsive to input from key industry partners, community college faculty and national and local governing boards. Best practices in technology education nationally, regionally and locally speak to the

Supporters seek $2.5M to save Bedford Playhouse theater BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

A

grassroots group in Bedford with several marquee names among its volunteers aims to raise $2.5 million by the end of this month to restore and renovate the Bedford Playhouse as a modern cinema complex and save it from conversion to retail space by its landlord. Alchemy Properties, a New York Citybased developer of residential and retail properties that include the Woolworth Tower Residences in Lower Manhattan, in 2013 acquired the brick theater building at 633-647 Old Post Road in the hamlet of Bedford Village. The mixed-use building includes 25 upper-story rental apartments, according to the Alchemy website.

The theater’s looming demise prompted John Farr, an independent film curator and editor and operator of Best Movies by Farr, a movie-content website, to form Friends of Bedford Playhouse last October. Farr, the group’s chairman, in a video introduction to the nonprofit’s mission on its website at friendsofbedordplayhouse. org, said the theater’s conversion to retail space “would be a tragedy.” Farr has proposed a nonprofit Bedford Playhouse modeled after the successful Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville and the Avon Theater in Stamford, a downtown landmark that Farr did much to restore and revive as a cinema showcase and cultural hub when he co-founded another nonprofit theater group, Avon Theater Film Center Inc., more than a

In January, the owner lost its most recent theater tenant, Bow Tie Cinemas, which chose not to renew its lease and closed the doors of the 68-year-old movie house. Bow Tie, based in Ridgefield, Conn., took over the Bedford theater in 2013 when it acquired Cablevision’s Clearview Cinemas, its previous operator. Kenneth Horn, president of Alchemy Properties, in published reports has said he wants to bring another cinema operator to Bedford Village, but will adapt the theater space for retail tenants if no cinema operator is found early this year. The town of Bedford Planning Board in November reportedly approved Alchemy’s use of the theater’s approximately 2,200 square feet of ground-level and mezzanine space as retail space.

decade ago. The Bedford building’s existing dual-screen theater would be replaced by a large-screen theater showing firstrun films and a smaller, more intimate second-screen theater would be built, both with state-of-the-art digital projectors. The renovated theater, envisioned as a cultural center for the community, also would have space for small gatherings, special events and educational programs relating to film and the arts, along with a high-end lobby cafe. Farr said the group must raise $2 million for renovations and about $500,000 for equipment upgrades. The $2.5 million must be raised by March 1 to save the theater from conversion to retail uses, he said. A spokesperson for the nonprofit in a press release said the group has raised more than $500,000 in pledges from residents in the four months since its formation. Friends of Bedford Playhouse received a major boost this month when the Thompson Family Foundation, a New York City-based charity, pledged $200,000 toward the fundraising goal. The foundation pledged an additional $300,000 contribution if Friends of Bedford Playhouse secures matching funds for that gift by March 1. “This leadership donation comes at just the right moment,” Farr said in a press release announcing the pledge. “We will do all we can to leverage this exceptional gift to achieve our ultimate goal — to transform this historic theater into a vital cultural and community hub.” The grassroots group has attracted several luminaries of cinema to its cause. Its advisory board includes documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger, comedian Chevy Chase, film director and screenwriter J.C. Chandor, and Swedish film director Lasse Hallstrom and his wife, actress Lena Olin.


INBRIEF YORKTOWN OFFICE PARK GETS $6M OVERHAUL

2649 Strang Blvd., a medical office building in Northern Westchester Executive Park.

Already given a new name, a 26-acre, twobuilding office campus in Yorktown Heights is being renovated this winter by its new owner in a $6 million capital project. GHP Office Realty LLC last fall acquired the former Taconic Corporate Park from a special servicer for Bank of America at a reported price of approximately $11 million after the previous owner defaulted on a $14.5 million mortgage. Renamed the Northern Westchester Executive Park, the complex includes 2649 Strang Blvd., a threestory, 68,000-square-foot medical office building, and 2651 Strang Blvd., a one-story, 150,000-square-foot building with technology, medical, laboratory and call center space. The mixed-use building also houses the Yorktown campus of Mercy College. About two-thirds of the building has sat vacant since Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield relocated its northern Westchester office to Orange County a few years ago. GHP in a press release said the renovation project includes demolition of 100,000 square feet of space in the largely vacant building and the addition of Energy Starrated windows and a state-of-the-art heating and ventilating system that is expected to result in utility costs for tenants that are approximately 30 percent lower than similar buildings in the market. At 2649 Strang Blvd., renovations will include a new fitness center and café and refurbished common areas. New signage will be added throughout the park. Health care tenants at 2649 Strang include ENT & Allergy Associates, Hudson Valley Hematology, North Shore-LIJ Health System, Northern Westchester County Dental, Hudson Valley Oral Surgery and Dialysis Clinic Inc.

Social media for small business

W

hen leveraged strategically, social media can help businesses strengthen relationships with existing clients and attract qualified prospects and leads. With so many platforms to choose from, businesses are tasked with determining not only which are best-suited to meet their business’ needs, but identifying how best to allocate resources among the platforms they choose.

Know your audience

How do you know which platforms your clients would be open to receiving information from you on? Just ask. Something as simple as deploying a three-to-five question electronic survey can help identify the social media platforms best-suited to your business. Now, let’s focus on prospects. While some will have similar communication preferences to your existing clients, demographic data

also come into play. Whether it’s Pinterest and Instagram or Twitter and Facebook, take the time to research who is using the platforms and then identify if you should/how best to leverage them. While the data you collect will be invaluable, it’s important to be realistic about whether your content and resources can sustain an effective social media marketing program on the platforms your research has identified as the strongest contenders. Which leads me to:

Know your content

Some businesses are inherently visual and others are highly technical. Thus, the company that will thrive on Instagram isn’t necessarily the same business that can sustain a dynamic, lead-generation blog. With your primary and secondary research in hand, audit your existing bank of content — sell sheets, case studies, whitepapers, sales kits,

etc. — and identify what could be potentially repurposed for your chosen social media platforms. Further, assess the skills across your marketing team and determine how best to leverage your team’s talents to populate your chosen social channels. Lastly, know your content generation bandwidth. Can you commit to a weekly blog post? Twice-daily tweets? Resources are limited and the last thing any company wants is to start off their social media marketing program with a bang only to have it die off due to lack of resources.

Here’s a social snapshot

So, which platforms are best for which businesses? The answers are far from universal, but here are some tips to help you get started. Facebook is good for short-format copy, photos and videos. It also lends itself nicely

to contests — so long as you comply with the company’s contest and prizing guidelines. Know that a lot of Facebook users access the platform from mobile devices, so the shorter your updates, the better. Think about it — are you likely to click “read more” as you scroll swiftly through your news feed while waiting in line for coffee or catching up on news between meetings? Twitter is a great tool for driving traffic to your website and other online content hubs. With its 140-character limit, succinct updates reign supreme. It’s also a great tool for businesses to engage with media. If you choose Twitter to be part of your social media toolkit, plan for time to engage with other users, be it by retweeting, favoriting or engaging in conversation. Pinterest remains popular for lifestyle brands. Clothing companies, interior design firms, bakeries and destinations alike have successfully leveraged this visual marketing platform to help their clients and prospects imagine themselves buying these clothes, decorating their homes with these products, eating these cookies and relaxing at these resorts. Pinterest’s user base is predominantly female (to the tune of 80 percent), an important demographic consideration for every brand. Instagram has gained attention for offering an opportunity to communicate through compelling photographs. Consumer brands such as Nike have mastered this newer social media marketing channel and been commended for their use of the tool. As with Pinterest, Instagram is built on visuals. It also tends to attract a younger demographic. LinkedIn is a great business-to-business social media marketing tool. Through a company profile, you can share thought leadership such as media coverage and blog posts. The beauty of LinkedIn is, with some carefully-crafted company policies, you can harness an entire sales team or workforce to spread your brand’s message to a bigger, broader audience. Blogs are for dialogues and Twitter is for snippets. Companies that require a longer format to effectively spread the word can achieve great success by blogging. Coupled with premium content offers such as whitepapers, tool kits and e-books, blogs can serve as online lead-generation hubs that generate measurable results. Regardless of the social media marketing channels you choose to augment the reach of your business, be consistent, be creative and remain audience-centric. Danielle M. Cyr is vice president of integrated marketing for Co-Communications, a marketing and public relations agency with of�ices in Mount Kisco, Manhattan and Farmington.

Proposed Sing Sing museum gets $250K grant BY LEIF SKODNICK lskodnick@westfairinc.com

T

he vision of a museum inside the walls of New York state’s most famous prison is one step closer to being a reality. A $250,000 grant has been awarded by the Empire State Development Corp. and the Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council to Historic Hudson River Towns, which wants to build a museum focusing on the history of Sing Sing Correctional Facility, a still-operational maximum security prison in the village of Ossining. The museum would be inside the prison’s walls. The grant money will be used by Historic Hudson River Towns, a nonprofit consortium of riverfront communities, to update feasibility and marketing studies on the proposed museum which local officials expect to be a major tourist attraction. “We’re excited, we think the museum would be a great attraction for the city, the region, and the county,” said Jerry Faiella, the executive director of Historic Hudson, who thinks that 200,000 or more people could visit the museum annually. “We’ve got great brand recognition,” Faiella said, with a hint of a laugh, noting that a lot of slang terms for incarceration came

from Sing Sing. “We’ve got ‘up the river,’ ‘the big house,’ there’s several of them.” The history of the prison spans nearly 200 years. Bought by New York state in 1825 for $20,100, the 135-acre site has been a working prison since the first 100 inmates arrived from Auburn Prison in May of that year. When the prisoners arrived, there was no prison to speak of — they built the walls of their own confinement after quarrying the building stones on site. With 800 cells on four tiers, the original prison took nearly three years to build. When it was finished, Sing Sing’s prisoners continued to quarry marble. Stone quarried at Sing Sing was used to construct, among other buildings, the New York State Capitol in Albany and Grace Church in Manhattan. The original cellblock was closed in 1940 and in 1943 the bars were stripped from the building and donated to the war effort. A 1984 fire destroyed the roof, leaving the cellblock in its current state. Over the years, Sing Sing has housed some of New York’s most notorious prisoners, including Albert Fish, Ruth Brown Snyder, Gary Evans and Eddie Lee Mays, all convicted of murder. David Berkowitz did time at Sing Sing immediately following his sentencing for

the “Son of Sam” murders. But Sing Sing is perhaps best known as the home of “Old Sparky,” the electric chair that was used in the execution of 614 convicts in the prison’s death house. Among those whose death sentences were carried out at the prison were Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, the spies who transmitted secret atomic bomb information to the Soviet Union. Building the museum inside the prison isn’t a new idea. “I think it started back in the 14th cen-

tury,” former Ossining Mayor Bill Hanauer told the Business Journal when the grant application was announced last summer. Hanauer has been involved in the effort since 2005. “(Former Westchester County Executive) Andy Spano reignited the effort, which goes back a long way, well into the 1990s, I believe.” Currently, there is a small exhibit about the history of Sing Sing at the Joseph G. Caputo Community Center at 95 Broadway in Ossining.

yPublisher, considered a pioneer of the personalized photo book industry, is letting go of 47 workers at its printing plant in Elmsford. According to a notice filed with the state Department of Labor, the company at 8 Westchester Plaza is citing “economic reasons” for the layoffs, which are set to begin May 1 and continue through July 31. MyPublisher was founded in 1994 by Carl Navarre, publisher and CEO of Atlantic Monthly Press. It began selling “the first photo book kits to retailers like Barnes and Noble, Fox Photo, and Moto Photo, in addition to cataloguers including Exposures, Orvis and Neiman Marcus,” according to its website. It subsequently expanded its distribution and in 1999 it phased out its offline business and started its digital online application at MyPublisher. com. As digital photography continued to grow, the company became a leader in creating photo apps and proprietary book-design features that enabled amateurs and professional photographers to customize photo books, as well as share and print their images. In 2001, MyPublisher entered into an exclusive five-year partnership with Apple Inc. to supply all printed photo book products for the computer company’s iPhoto software application. The company prints and ships more than 120 million photos per year — all done in-house, according to its website. In April 2013, Redwood City, Calif.based Shutterfly, also an image publishing service, bought MyPublisher for an undisclosed amount. At the time of the buyout, Shutterfly CEO Jeffrey Housenbold said, “By combining MyPublisher’s best-in-class software client with Shutterfly’s industry leading cloud based platform, we will continue to drive growth and set the standard for design, choice and quality in the personal publishing and social expression category.” Attempts to reach Shutterfly for comment were unsuccessful. — Bob Rozycki
