ur intentions are to expand north and provide care to a larger patient population,” Dr. Steven M. Safyer, president and CEO of Montefiore Health System, told the Business Journal in a wide-ranging interview at his Bronx office in late December. That northern expansion already was well underway and focused on southern Westchester County as he spoke. Yet little more than a month later, with the recent announcement that White Plains Hospital has agreed to a partnership with Montefiore at the center of a regional network of hospitals and physicians with a service area of nearly 3 million people, it seems that northward advance by the Bronx-based academic medical center had only just begun. In July last year, in an $8.75 million deal more noted by real estate brokers than by the press, Montefiore closed on its purchase of 250-270 East Sandford Boulevard in Mount Vernon, a vacant Montefiore, page 6

Developer seeks $2M for scrapped echo bay project BY MARK LUNGARiELLO mlungariello@westfairinc.com

THE WOULD-BE DEVELOPER of an aborted project on New Rochelle’s Echo Bay is asking the city to reimburse the company $2 million for its out of pocket expenses. Mark P. Weingarten, an attorney for Forest City Residential Group Inc., sent the city a letter

dated Feb. 5 demanding payment and saying the company had spent $3.1 million in municipal expenses. Weingarten said in the letter that Forest City was entitled to reimbursement up to $2 million for “municipal expenses” such as legal fees and costs associated with the design of the project and review of the proposal under state environmental laws. A lawsuit may follow whether or not the city

decides to pay, based on the language of the letter and an email from Abe Naparstek, a Forest City spokesman who was asked to elaborate on what the company was seeking. “I can’t comment on pending litigation,” he said. The developer, an affiliate of Clevelandbased Forest City Enterprises, was looking to Echo Bay, page 6


companies hiring foreign pros prepare for annual visa draw BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

“I

did my first DOMA case yesterday,” immigration lawyer Susan B. Henner said with a smile one recent morning at the small South Broadway office she shares with two associate attorneys and her husband’s criminal defense practice in downtown White Plains. Her client, a naturalized U.S. citizen, is seeking a green card for his samesex spouse overseas since a key section of the federal Defense of Marriage Act that kept the couple apart was declared unconstitutional last year. Henner, who is co-chairperson of the Westchester County Bar Association’s Committee on Immigration and Nationality Law, also does pro bono work on behalf of unaccompanied minors who illegally entered the U.S. and need legal representation here in the Safe Passage Project at her alma mater, New York Law School. About one-third of her work at the solo practice she opened in White Plains in 2001 involves individuals looking to bring family members into the U.S, she said. Corporate clients account for another one-third of her work in the tristate area. Some of those clients want to retain or recruit foreign employees whose stay in the U.S. requires nonimmigrant visas, which grant temporary residence without the permanence and security, for both employer and employee, of a green card. The paperwork for those clients takes on special urgency this winter as an April 1 filing deadline approaches. On that date, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services begins accepting petitions for a limited number of H-1B visas – 65,000 randomly selected from a general pool of applicants. Those visas allow foreign professionals to stay up to six years in the U.S. to work for specific employers. Applicants must possess at least a bachelor’s degree and must be sponsored by their U.S. employer. The H-1B visa regulations also require employers to file a Labor Condition

Application with the U.S. Department of Labor, whereby the employer agrees to pay the foreign worker a designated prevailing wage for the professional position. Henner has seen the aftereffects of the federal government shutdown last fall in her filings for clients this winter. The Labor Department applications, which normally took four to five days to process, are taking four to five weeks to go through the agency’s backlogged system, she said. Unable to access the federal agency’s website during normal business hours last month, “At one point we were going on in the middle of the night because we thought there would be less traffic,” Henner said. For the H-1B visas, “Now is the time that businesses really need to start working on them to be ready by April 1,” she said. In 2013, immigration officials, using a computer-generated selection system, reached the 65,000-visa cap in within the first week of April, Henner said. The agency sets a separate lottery cap of 20,000 visas for persons with master’s degrees. A total of 124,000 petitions for H-1B visas were filed last year, Henner said. “The numbers (of H-1B applications) were down for a few years because of the recession, but now they’re going back up,” she said. In her practice, “We’re starting to see an upswing again,” with about 15 applications to be filed this spring, compared with 12 in 2013 and 50 more than a decade ago. “We’re starting to see people recognizing the need and they’re hiring again. Which is good – it’s good for our clients.” Henner steers through the visa process both foreign workers and the companies hiring them for a range of occupations. “We see a lot in the computer field, obviously,” she said. “I have a lot in the engineering field and a lot in the accounting field.” The attorney also works with many bilingual speech therapists from Colombia and other countries who will be placed in U.S. schools with Spanishspeaking students by speech therapy agencies.

level of training that a lot of engineers here don’t have. So they’ll recruit in India, in Israel.” In Rye Brook, a company with about 120 employees wants to secure an H-1B visa and hire as an account manager a foreign student who has been working at the company on an Optional Practical Training visa. That visa allows foreign students to remain in the country to work for one year after receiving a bachelor’s degree. “The problem a lot of companies have is they don’t contact you on time” to meet the April 1 deadline and lottery for the longer-term H-1B visa for employees, Henner said. OPT visas run from June to June. At Maid Brigade, a roughly 40-employee house cleaning business in Valhalla, office worker Petra Juraskova has retained Henner to handle her H-1B application this year, when her OPT visa expires. Maid Bridge owners Robin and Gary Murphy will create a position as human resources specialist for their valued employee if she is selected for a visa in the April lottery. A native of the Czech Republic, where her family owns a plumbing contracting business, Juraskova came to the U.S. and Westchester County on a tourist visa in 2005. “That was the last time I was home,” she said. Should she leave, U.S. immigration officials have advised her that she might be denied re-entry here “even if I followed the immigration law,” she said. Once in the U.S., she obtained an F-1 student visa that had been difficult to obtain in the Czech Republic. She took English as a second language classes at Westchester Community College and earned an associate’s degree in marketing. In 2012, she received a bachelor’s degree

from Iona College, majoring in business administration in international business at the college’s Hagan School of Business. “It was always my dream to come to America,” Juraskova said at her desk at Maid Brigade, where her bookkeeping, payroll records and human resources work have expanded since her hiring nine months ago. It is her dream now to eventually obtain a green card and stay here permanently. To get that, she must first obtain the H-1B visa, she said. “We were really impressed with her performance,” Gary Murphy, the company’s operations director, said. “In a small business, we always need someone who can handle a lot of things thrown at them… She has the mindset for small business… In small business we’re always looking for talent. We want Petra to have a future here.” “It just blows me away that at the end of the day it comes down to a lottery,” Murphy said of the visa selection system. “It’s a matter of luck. It comes down to some broken immigration policy in the country that really needs to be addressed.” “It’s excruciating for Petra,” he added. For those who do not emerge a winner in the H-1B lottery, “You’ve got to be creative,” Henner said. “A large law firm will just be like, ‘Too bad, too bad, go home.’” But there are several other options for obtaining nonimmigrant visas. “That’s what people fail to realize,” she said. Juraskova has plans if she obtains her H-1B visa this year: a return visit and reunion with her family in the Czech Republic. “After nine years, yes,” she said.

Mamaroneck knocks down condo plan at Hampshire With rezoning off the table, club may pursue single-family subdivision

BY MARK LUNGARiELLO mlungariello@westfairinc.com

T

he village of Mamaroneck knocked down a proposed rezoning of Hampshire Country Club that would have paved the way for the development of 121 luxury condominiums at the club. Hampshire Recreation L.L.C. is now likely to pursue its Plan B, a larger-scale development that would subdivide Hampshire’s 18-hole golf course into 106 single-family homes. That project does not require that the property be rezoned. The Mamaroneck Board of Trustees voted against the proposed rezoning at its Feb. 10 meeting, where Mayor Norman Rosenblum and the five trustees voted in sync. “I think that this proposal, as presented, is not one that I’m willing to consider,” he said. The club had floated two plans for residential development amid opposition from some members of the community who said either project would increase traffic in the surrounding coastal neighborhoods, add students to the public school district and be an

environmental concern in an area prone to flooding. Hampshire, which occupies 121 acres on the harbor, had said it favored the rezoning, which would have built a 290,000-squarefoot condo cluster and 200-space underground garage. But, noting the possibility that the village might not grant the rezoning, club representatives had a Plan B ready that showed Hampshire was committed to residential construction on its property either way. Plan B is to build single family homes sized between 6,000 square feet and 7,000 square feet. Although the golf course would be turned into yards, the club said it would maintain the clubhouse, tennis court and swimming pool. Some critics took Plan B as a threat. Celia Felsher, president of the Mamaroneck Coastal Environmental Coalition, a civic group, said she believed the club owners knew building “McMansions” on the golf course would be “distasteful.” “We believe the subdivision plan is designed to threaten the board and community so Hampshire can move ahead with the much more lucrative condo development,”

she said. “The board should not be taken in by the threat.” George Mgrdichian, speaking on behalf of the Orienta Point Association, a civic group representing adjacent neighborhoods, said he wasn’t opposed to development but was against the rezoning. The subdivision plan would have to go to the village’s Planning Board, where some critics believe it will not pass muster in terms of compliance with environmental impact reviews. “This is not a matter that the Board of Trustees should debate at this time,” Mgrdichian said. “Issues of infrastructure, environment, traffic, flooding and residential values must all be taken into consideration.” If the Board of Trustees similarly viewed Plan B as a threat, the rejection of the rezoning serves as a calling of the bluff. If the club follows through on filing its Plan B with the Planning Board, it would have to comply with environmental reviews and local zoning, but the board would legally be compelled to judge the application on its own merits. Of the 120-acre property, roughly 9 acres are actually within the town of Mamaroneck and that acreage if targeted for development is subject to the town’s and not the village’s

zoning codes. The relationship between village and the club has been strained since new owners purchased the property in 2010. Many expected residential development proposals from the new club owners, who bought the distressed property for $12.1 million. With rumors of condo developments in the air, the village and town of Mamaroneck had combined to put in a $10.1 million bid on the property before ownership changed hands. Since then, residents opposing development have also accused the club of illegally hosting nonmember events on its premises. Some potential residents of the condominiums are sure to view the knocking down of Plan A as a defeat, not a victory. Stuart Gilbert, a Mamaroneck resident and member of Hampshire, said in a letter to the club ownership that the condos would have offered a full-service option for the aging population that might have no other option to continue to live in the village. “After speaking with my wife and many other people in my age group, we see absolutely no other alternative but Hampshire’s proposal for building condominiums on its grounds,” Gilbert said.

Westchester County job market mostly flat for January

J

anuary was a somewhat surprisingly weak month for the Westchester County job market, posting only a 1 percent increase in job posting activity vs. December, across multiple industries and towns. That followed a December surge that showed a 17 percent increase in job market activity. This news follows in the footsteps of national reports that indicated a weaker than expected level of hiring leading into year end, all of which leaves the county with a shaky start for 2014.

Some key items of note regarding January: • White Plains continues to show itself as the hub of job market activity, followed by Yonkers and Tarrytown. • The industries most actively hiring this past month continued to be retail, services and health care. • Top job categories were sales, health services and IT. A closer look at the data suggests that much of the positive activity in Q4 2013

All these numbers tell is that the market in the county overall is strong and perhaps continuing to strengthen.

The county posted a 5.2 percent unemployment rate for December (January numbers were not available at the time this article went to press), which is far better than the national numbers reported for January of 6.6 percent. When also compared with state unemployment for December at 7.1 percent and New York City unemployment at 8.1 percent, the county is doing quite well. Overall for 2013 the numbers dropped dramatically from an 8 percent high in January 2013. All these numbers tell is that the market in the county overall is strong and perhaps continuing to strengthen. The introduction of aggressively marketed tax incentive programs targeted at businesses in the state and those open to coming into the state also set the right foundation for further county job market improvement. Factors like the Affordable Care Act and its predicted negative impact on the hiring behavior of businesses, especially smaller ones, is likely not to be felt until Q3 2014 at the soonest. In the interim the hope is that the county continues to make small strides and show overall stability. Stay tuned.

Montefiore — From page 1

107,000-square-foot industrial building on a 2.5 acre site. Safyer in December said the building will reopen in about one year as the new central laboratory for Montefiore Health System, which performs 12 million laboratory tests annually at its current Bronx location. The laboratory complex will employ about 300 workers. That Mount Vernon purchase came about a month before a U.S. Bankruptcy Court judge approved Montefiore’s acquisition of assets of Sound Shore Health System in Mount Vernon and New Rochelle. Sound Shore in May last year filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition as a condition of its negotiated deal with Montefiore. That first venture north by Montefiore into southern Westchester’s community hospital operations came shortly after Westchester Medical Center officials tersely announced the Valhalla institution had broken off exclusive talks with Sound Shore Health System over a possible alliance or takeover. In November, Safyer was greeted in New Rochelle by what he called “ecstatic” hospital workers at the opening of Montefiore New Rochelle, the former Sound Shore Medical Center facility acquired in the $54 million

build 285 luxury apartments, 25,000 square feet of retail space and a waterfront park on a 9-acre parcel that includes an unused armory building and a city public works yard. A City Council vote in November 2013 effectively scrapped the project and severed ties with the developer after simmering community resistance boiled over at several community meetings last year. Despite the council’s decision, New Rochelle and Forest City had already signed a memorandum of understanding, or MOU, in May 2008, then signed a “restated” memo in April 2012. The provisions of restated memorandum that are the focus of the letter to the city from Forest City’s attorney. The City Council voted in May 2012 to accept a scoping document for the project, and accepted a final environmental impact statement in July 2013. The council was set to vote on several items related to the project last November, the centerpiece of which was a land disposition agreement. The agreement was a necessary first step that would have transferred the city-owned

bankruptcy deal that also rescued the former Mount Vernon Hospital and Schaffer Extended Care Center in New Rochelle from imminent closing.“People were trembling. They were crying. They were hugging each other,” Safyer recalled. “Every one of those people was about a week away from not having a job,” he said. “It was a $200 million enterprise that was on a burn rate of about $50 million a year. They had no cash, no liquidity. It was about to die.” Sound Shore’s dire financial situation “was partially an artifact of the changing nature of health care,” he said. Small independent hospitals lack the scale to survive in the emerging new era of more cost-efficient and coordinated care. “The scale and size of the organization with the medicine is the future,” Safyer said. “That’s why you’re seeing consolidations in health care. It’s not just institutions that are failing. Institutions that are successful will connect with larger systems.” That process is “inevitable,” he said. The CEO’s prediction was borne out in the joint announcement this month that White Plains Hospital directors agreed to enter into a partnership with Montefiore. White Plains Hospital CEO Jon Schandler, who plans to retire in 2015, said the hospital will operate under its own state certificate and keep its own board of directors and

land to the developer. But the council changed course and voted against the agreement by a vote of 6-1, after several months of council debates and fierce community opposition, which included a civic group formed with the singular purpose of stopping the project. Provisions of the restated memo said the city would act in “good faith to diligently and reasonably perform its obligations under the MOU” and also follow through on the land disposition within 60 days of necessary City Council approvals associated with the project. Despite it being the same project described in the MOU and other documents, Weingarten said, and despite the fair dealings provision, the City Council voted down the land disposition deal “peremptorily, willfully, arbitrarily, and without any rational basis whatsoever.” Kathy Gilwit, a spokeswoman for New Rochelle, is a written statement Feb. 12 said “the city’s position is that there is simply no legal contractual or other basis for its claims.” “While it is unfortunate that the parties were not able to reach full agreement on the project, there is no question that the city diligently and in good faith performed

management under Montefiore’s sponsorship. The 292-bed community hospital on East Post Road and three other community hospitals in the county in 2013 received approval from the state Department of Health to break ties with Armonk-based Health Star Network Inc. – which does business as Stellaris Health Network – as their parent company. That allowed the hospitals to seek new partners on the shifting health care landscape. One former Stellaris member, Lawrence Hospital Center in Bronxville, in January asked the state health department to approve its takeover by New York-Presbyterian Hospital, with which it currently has an affiliate agreement. Schandler said White Plain Hospital’s broad affiliation with New York-Presbyterian ended at the close of 2013. “They had made a commitment to Lawrence,” he said. Some medical services agreements between the two hospitals will terminate during this year, he said. Schandler said both his institution and Montefiore will do their due diligence in the pending deal over the next six to eight weeks and seek state approval of their partnership. He said he hoped to complete the deal by summer. As sponsor of White Plains Hospital,

Montefiore will make “a very substantial capital contribution” to its new partner, Schandler said. He declined to disclose the amount. Safyer in the recent announcement noted the “tremendous synergy between our two institutions and our people” and their shared fundamental values. “Our vision is to build a regional network of hospitals and community physicians closely aligned in an integrated system of care,” Safyer said. “White Plains Hospital will be the center of that network to strengthen and expand our position as a health care leader in Westchester and the Hudson Valley.” Schandler said the partnership with Montefiore will add “clinical sophistication, scale sophistication, care management sophistication” to White Plains Hospital. “Our goal is to continue building sophistication,” he said. Safyer in his December interview suggested there is more to come in Montefiore’s northern expansion. He acknowledged that Montefiore has had talks with St. Joseph’s Hospital officials in Yonkers. It had declined an invitation to enter discussions with Lawrence Hospital officials in Bronxville, he said. “It’s a competitive market,” said Safyer. “I like competition.”

all its obligations in accordance with the relevant agreements,” the statement said. The letter and the looming potential of a lawsuit is the latest chapter in a tumultuous, decade-long process. The city had viewed the Echo Bay area as ripe for development and officially solicited proposals in 2006. Forest City was the chosen developer, initially conceiving a larger, 26-acre mixeduse project that would have included 710 residences, 150,000 square feet of retail and two 150-room hotels. The original proposal called for knocking down the former armory building and replacing it with a community center, an idea that drew protests from veterans and other city residents

who wanted the building preserved. A pared-down proposal followed in 2010 after the market was changed by the economic recession. That new plan focused more centrally on the public works yard and spared the armory. But the reduced scope of the project was cause for concern for many critics who felt the city wasn’t getting enough of a return while giving away too much in terms of the land and expected tax breaks. Today, the fate of the armory remains unclear and the City Council has yet to decide whether or not to proceed with relocating the city yard now that the Echo Bay project has been rejected.


Going national is as easy as sweet potato pie Super Bowl boosts market for local pie maker

BY CRYSTAL KANG ckang@westfairinc.com

A

small Peekskill-based sweet potato pie maker is looking to gobble up a slice of the national market after some Super Bowl baking introduced the company to a wider audience. G&K Sweet Foods L.L.C. catered its pies at a post-Super Bowl VIP tailgating party at MetLife Stadium. There, the company’s sweet potato tarts and pies reached some high profile dessert plates – and not just the family and friends of NFL players. “Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child even came and tasted our pies,” CEO Gay Wheeler-Smith, a New Rochelle resident, said. “She said the pies reminded her of the home cooked food she grew up with.”

“Our goal is to eventually get into airports, colleges and any large institution because we have a commercial kitchen space that can bake everything and expand our offerings.” — Gay Wheeler-Smith

Wheeler-Smith and her partner, chief operating officer Kecia Palmer-Cousins became friends at book club in New Rochelle in 1997 and realized both were raised in the south eating sweet potato pies at every family meal, and they wanted to bring back their favorite childhood dessert. Wheeler-Smith, armed with her great grandmother’s sweet potato pie recipe, asked Palmer-Cousins to become her business partner. With Wheeler-Smith’s baking experience and Palmer-Cousins’ business knowledge, which comes from having entrepreneurs in her immediate and extended families, the two formed the company in 2007 and have been selling to restaurants and bakeries ever since. “You have so many people who were raised with southern recipes and ate sweet potato pies every Sunday when their grandmas, aunts and moms used to make them, and people still crave those desserts,” said Palmer-Cousins, who received a bachelor of science degree in manufacturing engi-

neering from Boston University, an MBA in marketing from Long Island University and a master certificate in project management from George Washington University. Palmer-Cousins, former senior information technology project manager at Verizon Business, said she was thrilled the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee selected them as one of the vendors for the tailgating party after a year-long vetting process. TWB “When we were first asked to particiDevine/Healy Electric pate, the Super Bowl Host Committee sent WCBJ outNEWSPRINT lots of invites,” said Palmer-Cousins, a Peekskill resident. “We 7.375” w x 7.125” h weren’t sure if we would be selected because everyone was 3-4-13 invited to attend the same workshops, and we had to prepare desserts for taste tastings Sweet, page 9

Gay Wheeler-Smith and Kecia Palmer-Cousins regularly distribute their sweet potato pies to C-Town Supermarkets in Mount Vernon.

INBRIEF

PLaN WouLD sTeeR sTaTe BusINess To DIsaBLeD VeTs

Gov. andrew M. Cuomo has proposed legislation that would set a 5 percent goal in the awarding of state contracts to small businesses owned by military veterans disabled in service. The bill would create a Division of ServiceDisabled Veterans’ Business Development

within the state Office of General Services to administer the program and coordinate with state agencies to help meet the contract goal. “Supporting small businesses owned by New York’s service-disabled veterans is just one way that we can honor the tremendous sacrifice that these brave individuals have made for our state and nation,” Cuomo said in a press release. State Sen. greg ball, the Putnam County Republican who chairs the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, in a statement expressed his support of and cooperation with the governor in the effort to secure a share of state contracts for disabled veterans. Ball said 44 other states

and the federal government have already successfully implemented the program. New York is home to more than 900,000 veterans, of whom 72 percent have served during periods of conflict, according to state officials. The state is also home to approximately 30,000 active duty military personnel and 30,000 National Guard and Reserve personnel.

The New York Department of State has launched a streamlined online filing system for businesses forming domestic business corporations and domestic limited liability companies. The electronic filing of certificates of incorporation and articles of organization will reduce the filing process for businesses from more than a week to a matter of minutes and eliminate any expedited processing fees, Gov.

Their experience with the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee has given them the confidence to apply for contracts with more government agencies and major institutions. “We’re hoping the Super Bowl will maintain a long-term relationship with us,” Wheeler-Smith said. “Our goal is to eventually get into airports, colleges and any large institution because we have a commercial kitchen space that can bake everything and expand our offerings.” G&K started packaging their sweet potato pies and selling them frozen to extend the product’s shelf life.

Foreigners keep arriving, but New York exodus leads nation BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

N

ew York’s high numbers of arriving foreign immigrants in recent years offset much of the continued exodus of residents from New York to other states – the largest domestic migration in the nation – according to recent estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau. The census migration data from 2010-13 was first reported last month by the Empire Center for Public Policy Inc., an independent nonprofit think tank in Albany that advocates for government policy reforms based on free-market principles. Over a one-year period ending July 1 last year, New York saw a net loss of 104,470 residents to other states, the Census Bureau estimated. That number far exceeded states with the next highest net population losses for the year – Illinois with 67,313 residents and California with 49,259 residents. Over a three-year period starting in 2010, the exodus of residents from New York to other states was the largest in numbers in the nation, amounting to a net migration loss of 328,538 persons, the Census Bureau estimated. That was a 1.7 percent decline from New York’s population in the 2010 census. Illinois over the same three-year peri-

od sustained the largest percentage loss in population, 1.75 percent, with an estimated 224,704 residents migrating to other states. New York’s three-year loss followed a decade in which nearly 1.6 million New Yorkers moved to other states, Empire Center president Edmund J. McMahon noted in a report last month. McMahon said that Florida, which is about to pass New York as the nation’s third most populous state behind California and Texas, gained an estimated 308,152 residents from 2010 through July 2013, a 1.64 percent increase. The Sunshine State, a popular destination for relocating New Yorkers, in the year ending last July received 91,484 migrants from other states. Florida’s ascent in the country’s population rankings was aided too by a three-year influx of foreign immigrants estimated at 310,822 persons. The state’s net migration over the three-year period totaled 618,974 persons, a 14.3 percent increase. New York attracted an estimated 318,132 foreign immigrants during the three-year span, a 1.64 percent increase from the 2010 population. Only California received more foreign immigrants, 389,166, during the same period. Foreign immigration reduced New York’s net migration loss for the three-year period

to an estimated 10,406 persons. New York had an estimated net migration of 2,672 residents from 2012 to 2013. New Jersey lost an estimated 148,150 residents from 2010 to 2013. a 1.69 percent decrease that closely rivaled New York’s second lowest ranking in percentage decline. Its losses too were offset by foreign immigration, with an estimated 145,374 persons planting

new roots in the Garden State during the three-year period. Connecticut lost an estimated 50,500 residents to other states over the three-year period, ranking it 47th among the 50 states and District of Columbia in percentage decline. Connecticut, though, gained 49,186 foreign immigrants in those three years, reducing its net migration loss to 1,314 residents.

Insurer pays for health exchange fumbles Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield will reimburse three weeks of premium payments to an estimated 15,000 to 20,000 New Yorkers who enrolled in Empire health insurance plans in the state’s new online health insurance marketplace, New York State of Health. The insurer’s action followed a probe by the state Department of Financial Services into complaints about Empire’s handling of enrollments on the exchange, including sending out member identification cards late, failing to send out bills on time and failing to properly transfer direct-pay enrollees into their new plans.

Empire agreed to make cash payments to consumers who paid premium amounts for January, but did not receive care during that period. State officials said Empire has also committed $2 million to consumer education to encourage enrollment of the uninsured and others in health care coverage through the state exchange. “We’re pleased that the company stepped up to acknowledge the issue and move to make progress toward fixing it,” state Superintendent of Financial Services Benjamin M. Lawsky said. – John Golden

Barbara Hart: Fighting the good fight BY FRANK pAGANi

A

year ago, she made the headlines in a major securities litigation fraud case. This year, she’s making news in an equally big way in antitrust litigation. The newsmaker is Barbara Hart, chief operating officer and head of the securities litigation practice of White Plains-based Lowey Dannenberg Cohen & Hart. As reported in these pages in December 2012, she as lead counsel and her colleague, attorney Thomas Skelton, recovered in a landmark case $219 million for class-action from so-called “feeder funds” that invested money in Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi scheme. Not only did Hart help client Plumbers & Steamfitters Local 267 recover the lion’s share (70 percent) of the stolen money but virtually 100 percent of it had been paid within one month after federal judge Colleen McMahon awarded the settlement, calling it an “unprecedented global settlement.” She added, “Rarely has there been a more transparent settlement negotiation. It could serve as a prototype for the resolution of securities-related class actions. I have never seen this level of response to a class-action notice of settlement and I do not expect to see anything like it again.” Continuing on the news-making path, Hart was recently named chair of the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) antitrust section. She attributes her success as an antitrust litigator to the mentorship early in her career of noted litigator Bernard Persky, who played a key role in numerous high-profile cases. Among her numerous antitrust cases, she cites a recent one against a major pharmaceutical company. Her firm represented several union funds including the New York State Teachers Health and Welfare Fund, Local 237 Health & Welfare Fund and Health & Welfare Benefit Fund of Suffolk County to recover money from GlaxoSmithKline for inflated prices on its penicillin antibiotic, Augmentin. Hart’s firm recovered $29 million for the union funds. Hart cites mergers as one area that is likely to get special focus, explaining, “Significantsized mergers like those in the airline and beer industries require antitrust approval by the government and the federal and state courts are hearing increased number of suits relating to mergers.” She noted from past experience that there will be strong disagreements voiced by members over antitrust issues. “But, the key to our section’s success is that these disagreements are respectful and productive. I think respect-

ful disagreement is so important and relevant not only in the practice of law but to families, politics and society in general.”

Hart says that respectful disagreement, listening and hearing the validity of others’ points have been instrumental to her in “achieving the best outcomes for our clients.” It has also played a part as well in the success she had in pushing for reform to both New York Donnelly and Martin Acts governing, respectively, antitrust and financial fraud. Her efforts in the Donnelly Act, the state’s primary antirust law, came early in her career when she met with legislators to amend the measure, allowing private parties the right to sue companies or individuals participating in anti-competitive activity. “The change in the Donnelly Act in New York had a ripple effect across the country as 26 other states adopted similar reforms.” More recently, her efforts as a friend of the court on behalf of state teacher retirement and pension funds against J.P. Morgan Investment Management Inc. resulted in a judgment by the New York State Court of Appeals that the Martin Law did not bar

institutional investors the right of legal action when the state’s securities laws are violated. Previously, the Martin Act, legislation dating to 1921, restricted to the attorney general the right to fight financial fraud. “Essentially, the court’s ruling on the relevance of the Martin Act opened the way for investors to pursue claims. But we worked with the attorney general to make this outcome happen. Can you imagine if the AG had to pursue every fraud case?” And one can only imagine what the future headlines will read like regarding the impact that Hart will make on her clients and the general public as a result of her expertise and collaborative skills – in and out of the courtroom.

MARSHA’S MEMO One of the great benefits of being a member of the Business Council of Westchester are the many opportunities for networking with other members to help build your business. Throughout the year, the Business Council offers many events where members can network including Business After Business, Speed Networking and Power Breakfasts as well as our signature events – the Annual Dinner, Hall of Fame and Rising Stars. But the biggest networking event of the year is just around the corner – the Westchester Business Expo. Formerly called the Mega Mixer, the Westchester Business Expo is the largest and most anticipated trade show in the Hudson Valley. This year’s Expo, which is being held March 20th at the Hilton Westchester in Rye Brook, is being expanded to include many new activities designed to create an exciting interactive business experience. In addition to some 180 display booths, there will also be “Experience Exchanges” that will provide an opportunity to interact with an industry expert, share success stories and ideas with other participants and walk away with fantastic new information to incorporate into your business. Last year’s Expo drew nearly 2,000 business people from Westchester and the Hudson Valley region. This year we anticipate an even bigger turnout. For more information about participating in this year's Business Expo including sponsorship opportunities, please contact Allison Calvert at 914-948-2110. In addition to providing members with ever expanding venues for networking and building their businesses, the Business Council is also working tirelessly to advocate for business with elected officials on the local, county and state level. This month a delegation of Business Council members will join with me and BCW Executive Vice President John Ravitz for our Annual Lobbying Day in Albany where we will personally meet with key legislators and state officials. Among the issues on our agenda will be taxes, economic development, healthcare reform and relief from unfunded mandates. I’ll have more to report about our trip to Albany in future issues of The Buzz.

Computer Crime Fighters Find a Home in Westchester In a world loaded with cyber-sleuths, “hacktivists” and seemingly endless amounts of data and threats, the truth will set you free. Not a believer? Just ask Eric Friedberg, Executive Chairman and one of the founders of Stroz Friedberg, a global leader in digital intelligence, investigations and risk management with offices in 13 locations – including Westchester County – on three continents. “Seek truth” is the guiding principle for a firm that boasts having the brightest minds in digital forensics, forensic accounting, security and other facets of what can best be described as “computer crime.” The truth, as Friedberg sees it, can expose any number of vulnerabilities to an organization including cyber threats and criminal behavior – from outside or from within a company. Identifying them can protect and fortify a company. “We really predicate our whole approach on the science and business ethics of what the facts are and responding to those facts,” Friedberg says. “We find that we can provide assurances to all parties. Eventually, the truth is going to come out.”

MEMBER PROFILE

The need has exploded with the proliferation of data and digital storage, particularly when you consider that a “cyber-attack” – from organized crime, foreign governments or competitors -- can affect markets, siphon millions from bank accounts or steal valuable patents and trade secrets from companies. From left, Stroz Friedberg’s eDiscovery Group: Ron Essig, Technical Director; Barbara Dunn, Managing Director; Erica Browne, Assistant Director; Matthew McAuley, Project Manager and Jacek Taper, Technical Project Manager

Their roster of clients includes Google, Facebook, top tier U.S. law firms and Fortune 100 companies, but they also work with government agencies, including attorneys general for all over the country. Friedberg founded the company in 2000 with business partner Edward Stroz. Stroz built a career as Special Agent for the FBI, while Friedberg was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of New York where he was a lead computer crimes prosecutor. The two saw the proverbial coding on the hard drive. They knew there was a growing need for this type of service.

Stroz Friedberg offers solutions and services that involve both technical assistance and strategic advice, while navigating a complex of law, technology, compliance, investigations and behavioral science. The company, headquartered in Manhattan, in 2012 opened up state-of-the-art electronic discovery, or “eDiscovery” operations in Purchase. There, dozens of employees review, manage and analyze vast amounts of electronic data that is used for litigations, regulatory actions and internal investigations.

ask andi

Do I really need a marketing person? Administrative help we can find, but marketing seems a little more difficult. How do we know who to look for and how to know if they’re any good at it? Do I really need someone on staff? Or should I hire people to work on projects? If I don’t manage marketing, who will? When it comes to marketing, it seems like I have more questions than answers. Help!

Thoughts of the Day: Marketing is the most diverse of all of the company’s core functions, as well as the least well understood or measured. Marketing is essential to the company’s future. Building a team to work on marketing is the way to go. Figure out what it is that you plan to measure before you hire. Grow into marketing over time. Most business owners are very good at what they do. But unless the services they provide fall into the marketing arena or they’ve had a past job in marketing, the whole field of marketing seems pretty foreign and uncomfortable to them. And we all know that we are less likely to jump on tasks that are unfamiliar. Combine unfamiliarity with uncertainty – as in lack of clarity around expected results – and you’ll find most business owners will go out of their way to avoid the subject. Why work on something they don’t understand when instead, they could immerse themselves in something more comfortable, such as the work the company does to keep its current customers satisfied? The breadth of marketing can be intimidating. There’s print, telecommunications and online venues through which to approach potential customers. Advertising, direct mail, social media, networking and phone campaigns are just some of the tools to use to attract attention. Just because people pay attention doesn’t mean that they’re the right targets – that’s where research comes into play. Focus on online presence with a website that lacks good design and programming and you could do more harm than damage. And of course, today’s customers may or may not be the customers your company needs in the future. There are so many unknowns in marketing. Of course business owners choose to avoid the subject. But avoiding the subject can lead to big problems down the road when there aren’t enough of the right kinds of leads to keep the business growing profit-

ably. So, the solution is to learn enough to be able to engage with the subject, learn about what does and doesn’t work and build a robust marketing function. Get some experience with marketing by joining a club or taking a course devoted to the subject. There are national associations devoted to marketing. Schools provide semester and weekend courses. Look online for seminars available from business trainers. Start by learning about the subject and picking one or two topic areas to focus on. A strong, well-rounded marketing function will help to ensure that your company is working on both today and the future. That’s your long-term goal. In the meantime you have to start somewhere. Build your confidence by starting small and getting a couple wins under your belt.

by andi gray

Interview people who provide various marketing services. For each area of marketing that you want to focus on, always interview at least three candidates. Use the interview process to learn about the topic. Use common sense. Don’t get intimidated. If it appeals to you, give it a try. It’s hard to stay committed to any activity unless it shows measurable results. Unfortunately in marketing you have to give things time to gel. And it may be hard to compare the costs of a marketing activity to actual results. In addition, marketing is a multiplier function. Typically the more activities you engage in, the more likely you are to see a result. Build your confidence. Make a list of things to work on in marketing. Then get one or two of the items checked off. Put together

a timetable and a budget for marketing activities. That will help you see marketing as a process rather than an event. Looking for a good book?

FEBRUARY SPOTLIGHT

MUSIC CONSERVATORY OF WESTCHESTER

85 YEARS AND COUNTING…

Music Conservatory of Westchester was founded in 1929 by a group of musicians, including the legendary cellist Pablo Casals. Among its former students are internationally acclaimed concert pianist Garrick Ohlsson, New York Philharmonic flutist Mindy Kaufman, and noted composer Todd Machover who has written significant works for Yo-Yo Ma

WHY GIVE?

and Joshua Bell. For more than 80 years, the Conservatory has offered high-quality music education to students of all ages, abilities and ambitions, regardless of background or fi nancial means. Instruction is offered in classical, jazz, rock and pop music and includes private instrumental and vocal lessons, performing ensembles, theory, composition, Suzuki program and young children’s classes, programs for adults, summer programs for children and teens, and more than 100 student and faculty performances each year. Our students and teachers work together in a warm and welcoming music community. Our teachers are distinguished artists and educators who inspire, motivate and nurture their students and have performed with the New York Philharmonic, Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Jazz at Lincoln Center, among many others. The Conservatory Scholarship Program provides more than $100,000 in tu-

ition assistance each year for students with fi nancial need. Our acclaimed Music Therapy Institute offers music therapy and adapted instruction for those with special needs, serving more than 1,500 individuals in partnership with 30 schools and agencies. Located in the heart of Westchester, our beautiful 36,000-square-foot fully renovated building features 43 teaching studios, two dance studios and a state-of-the-art recital hall. The Steffi Nossen Dance School and Westchester Choral Society are in residence in the building. Since its founding, it is estimated that the Conservatory has trained more than 80,000 students, many of whom have become professional musicians, teachers at universities and public schools, as well as regular concertgoers, thus contributing to the vitality for the field of music in Westchester, the Northeast region of the United States and beyond. For more information visit: www.musicconservatory.org or call 761-3900

“I joined the Board of Trustees because I was impressed with the array of services the Conservatory provides to the community. The music therapy program especially has a profound impact. My children were already Conservatory students and my good friend Harry Bright was an adult student who spoke very highly of the school. My wife, Judy, chose the Conservatory for our kids and when I got here I found it was full of pleasant surprises both challenging and encouraging for students. Children at every level will find the ability to gain confidence and grow through music in ways that affect every aspect of their lives.” — Mayo Bartlett Law Offices of Mayo Barlett, PLLC

SPECIAL Travel: REPORT Spring getaways

Hotels, agencies optimistic about business travel BY CRYSTAL KANG ckang@westfairinc.com

B

lame the snow, ice and arctic temperatures for a winter dip in corporate bookings at local hotels and through local travel agents. And even though cold weather should mean more bookings from companies sending their employees to conventions in warmer climates, a couple of polar vortices may have cooled things off a bit too much for travel the last few months. “The colder it is, the better it’s for travel,” said Renato Grussu, owner of White Plainsbased Arriva Travel American Express, a franchise of American Express Co. “But if it’s too stormy then it becomes a problem because people are afraid of getting stuck in the storm.” But despite bookings being put on ice in recent years, bookings for travel agents and local hotels are showing a broader post-recession recovery, according to officials. When the worst of the economic downturn took hold, many companies got gun-shy about booking corporate conferences, attending out-of-area conventions and traveling for businesses purposes in general. There is evidence the corporate gatherings are making a comeback though. And Westchester businesses are optimistic that when things thaw out this spring, they’ll make up for any short-term drop off with a warm-weather spike that should contribute to a larger, longer-term upswing. Travel agencies are noticing an influx of corporations booking trips to the “warmest destinations possible,” said Mari Hawkins, owner of Gemini Travel Inc. in Mount Kisco. The most popular corporate destinations for Westchester-based companies this spring look to be Florida and Puerto Rico, she said. Both Grussu and Hawkins agreed that the financial and medical sectors, both which have had recent local surges, have shown the strongest and most consistent interest in booking corporate spring trips in recent years. Corporate retreats and conferences in Westchester hotels have been growing each year since the recession eased up in 2009, said Joe Santore, vice president and general manager of the Tarrytown House Estate & Conference Center. Corporate bookings at

Mari Hawkins, owner of Gemini Travel Inc. in Mount Kisco

the center increased 20 percent from spring 2012 to last spring, he said. Corporate bookings at the hotel are expected to grow 9 percent this year. “What’s interesting is that corporate meetings are becoming smaller in size but meeting more frequently,” Santore said. “We used to host a few 200-to-300 person conferences a year. In the last three years, we’ve seen smaller conference meetings of 25 to 40 people.” Spring and fall are typically the most popular seasons for business meetings and conferences, said Dana Cooper, director of sales and marketing at the Ritz-Carlton, Westchester in White Plains. “Last year was our best corporate meetings and group year and in 2014 we’re expecting the same results,” said Cooper, who noted

the Ritz-Carlton experienced a 7 percent increase in bookings from 2012 to 2013. With corporate travel picking back up, Cooper said companies are realizing the value of moving teams into work spaces conducive for strategizing and streamlining ideas. “People are in a place where they’re recognizing the importance of escaping with their team in order to streamline their ideas in an area removed from the office,” Cooper said. The Ritz-Carlton offers a “Spring Forward” package, which includes small perks such as seasonal décor and continental breakfast items. “We’ll provide seasonal inspirations with the springtime in mind: lemonade on your break or lemon cookies or something to do

with the fun, vibrant citrus flavors,” Cooper said. “We also have housekeepers turn down the sheets in the bedrooms and add amenities like bath salts in the bathrooms or lemon in water pitchers.” As corporate bookings bounce back, hotels and travel agencies are looking for more than just an attractive price, said Grussu. “Before, it was about looking at how much discount we can offer on a trip, but now it’s how many added amenities can we give them as they pay the full price,” Grussu said. Grussu said incentives such as upgrading a deluxe room to a suite, providing free breakfasts and offering credit for food and beverage will boost business travel this spring.

armonk day camp sold in multimillion-dollar deal BY CRYSTAL KANG ckang@westfairinc.com

T

hree Westchester camp directors recently bought Breezemont Day Camp Inc., a 15-acre property in Armonk, in a multimillion-dollar transaction. The day camp, which serves about 300 children ages 3 to 14 each year, will undergo a $300,000 to $400,000 facelift. The plan is to add new programs and choices of activities including a zip line and an aerial ropes course. New tennis courts and renovations to the basketball courts, playgrounds, dining room and visitor and health centers will take place before this summer. The summer camp includes six pools, a lake, and outdoor adventure and aquatics programs. During the off season, the camp serves as a wedding venue and hosts other events. “We’re the only day camp in Westchester with its own lake,” said

Gordon Josey, one of the three buyers. “As a result, we want to enhance our sports, arts, outdoor adventure and aquatics programs.” In addition to Josey, the other two partners are Tony Stein and Mark Newfield. The property on Cox Avenue was bought from JR Tesone. The exact price was not disclosed. The day camp is in the process of hiring activity specialists, general counselors and group leaders for the summer. In the past, the vast majority of its staff has been full-time educators or teachers, who can take the summers off to work at the day camps. Josey said Breezemont is looking to hire 30 to 40 people for the summer. “We want to keep the same traditions where children come and feel safe and welcomed,” Josey said. “What we want to do is to create a marriage of fun with nice facilities. Now with the availability of online enrollments and new menu options, we’re taking the old tradition of the camp but presenting it with a newer

and fresher perspective.” Since 1936, the day camp has served as an educational and recreational center for children. About 50 years ago, the New York Rangers ice hockey team used the lake inside the day camp as a training facility. Long before that, the camp grounds served as a summer vacation home for middle- and upper-class immigrants from New York City, Josey said. Josey, a native of Scotland, started working at summer camps in America in 1990. In 1998, he became the director of a camp in Maine. Then in year 2000, he bought Camp Twin Creeks, an overnight camp in West Virginia. The three partners each own summer camps. Stein owns Camp Echo Lake, an overnight camp in the Adirondack Mountains; and Newfield owns Iroquois Springs, a co-ed overnight camp in Rock Hill, Sullivan County. “We’ve got lot of experience operating a camp, and we know the potential is fantastic,” Josey said. “But like any other

new business, it takes three to five years to turn it around and get it to where we have to financially, with infrastructure and staffing.”

Gordon Josey is the new owner and director of Camp Breezemont in Armonk.
