ne of the two companies that wanted to buy the former Frank’s Nursery from the town of Greenburgh has instead set its sites on the 32-acre golf range next door. Game On 365 L.L.C. is planning to buy the Westchester Golf Range on Dobbs Ferry Road, next door to the 7-acre former Frank’s Nursery, an environmentally-blighted parcel that the town was set to sell before getting cold feet last year. Greenburgh announced it had agreed to a deal to sell the Frank’s property to Game On last year amid some community opposition over the terms of the deal, which would have paid $1.7 million up front and another $1.3 million over 13 years. A competing company, Ardsley-based House of Sports jumped in to offer a $3.5 million cash offer to take the property “as is.” The town accepted the Game, page 6

modern wedding mashup: site serves moms, businesses By CrySTaL kang ckang@westfairinc.com

hen Erica Laudon, a Croton-onHudson entrepreneur, married in 2007, she said her mother, Jane Laudon, couldn’t decide what dress to wear or how to do her makeup for her daughter’s wedding day. Erica realized not only was it important for her to find the right accessories and hairstylist, but it was equally important that her mother have a pressure-free preparation for her daughter’s big day. “The wedding day is the bride’s day, but moms feel they’re on display as well,” said Erica. “They want to look good in front of their relatives, too.” With that in mind, Erica did some research. She found that not many wedding magazines and online resources provided wedding day tips for mothers looking for age-appropriate makeup and fashion tips. “What’s frustrating about the wedding industry is that it’s highly fragmented when it comes to finding a makeup artist and fashion stylist that can come in and help moms,” said Erica. But one thing was clear. With the expansion of digital media and growth of social media platforms, more women are consulting online resources rather than magazines and books to guide their wedding preparation journey. Daughters are helping mothers navigate popular wedding websites such as theknot.com and lover.ly and the wedding section of pinterest.com. “Social, local and mobile is very effective in the wedding industry,” Erica said. “More mothers of brides are starting to embrace the technology of wedding planning and researching everything from the wedding venue and wedding cakes to wedding trends and wedding dresses online.” With Jane’s background in information systems and Erica’s certificate in digital media marketing and social media from New York University and MBA earned at Cornell University’s Johnson School of Management, the pair decided to launch a one-stop shop for all the latest wedding preparation advice on fashion, etiquette,

budgeting and planning. In December 2012, Erica and Jane created the website ModernWeddingMom.com, which provides reviews on hair and makeup products and showcases popular dresses. They even created a blogtalkradio.com channel featuring interviews with celebrity makeup artists, reality TV-show stars and local business owners in Westchester. The duo found that 30 percent of its 30,000 unique monthly online visitors use mobile devices. About 60 percent of their visitors are women between ages 18 and 34, while 25 percent are women between ages 45 and 64. Nearly 25 percent are from Westchester. After running the website for more than a year, Erica and Jane plan to build content by providing advertisement space for local businesses that want to publicize their products and services. “Our next step is monetizing the site by building a vendor network,” Erica said.

“We hope to create a vendor directory that promotes vendors in Westchester County to the audience on our website. The goal is to work on getting at least 200 vendors listed.” Erica added that they plan to draw additional revenue by releasing an eBook on how to dress for specific body shapes based on interviews with celebrity stylists, which customers will be able to download on an iPad, Kindle or other tablets. While keeping the website accessible to mothers of brides and grooms across the nation, Erica and Jane remain particularly interested in catering to mothers in Westchester and their

specific needs. “A lot of moms in Westchester are interested in what to wear to casual rustic weddings,” Erica said. “There’s a lot of interest on how to use makeup to look younger, especially with high resolution cameras that pick up makeup that’s not well applied. They’re also interested in hairstyling, where to go to get their hair blown out, what hair products to use, what products to bring when traveling to a destination wedding.” Erica said based on her conversations with mothers in Westchester, popular wed-

ding venues include Tappan Hill Mansion in Tarrytown, the American Yacht Club in Rye, Larchmont Yacht Club, Peter Pratt’s Inn in Yorktown Heights and Lyndhurst in Tarrytown. A wedding in Westchester could cost anywhere from $100 to $300 per person, Erica said. Currently, ModernWeddingMom.com is profitable through sponsoring content for brands including Elizabeth Arden and Match.com and through publishing stories about wedding business services and products on their website. “Many vendors are looking for companies with strong social networks to talk about why their products or services are excellent,” said Erica, who believes the selling point of her website is how affordable it is for small businesses to advertise their products and showcase their services on their social media channel through videos and radio segments. “The fees are incredibly high for advertising, and that creates a barrier to entry,” said Erica. “Some of the smaller and local vendors don’t have that kind of budget and are looking for a more affordable media outlet to get their services out to the mothers of brides and grooms.” ModernWeddingMom.com’s office is based in Croton-on-Hudson, and the staff includes Erica, Jane, a publicist and fulltime social media community manager. It plan to hire an account executive to sell its vendor networking system and anticipate hiring five to 10 more people within the next three to four months. “We’re starting our business close to home,” said Erica. “But we want to expand to New York City, Chicago, L.A., San Francisco, Boston and D.C. further down the road.”

New Rochelle mulls redevelopment as finances improve By Mark Lungariello mlungariello@westfairinc.com

M

oody’s Investors Services removed a negative financial outlook designation for New Rochelle, strengthening the city’s borrowing power at a time when officials are envisioning several major downtown development projects. Moody’s, in its analysis released Feb. 13, gave the city an Aa3 rating, a highquality ranking that could translate into better interest rates when New Rochelle issues bonds. The removal of the designation, which was in place since 2011, came in part due to improved financial operations, manageable debt burden and New Rochelle’s sizable tax base. The firm noted challenges for the city that include decreasing tax income caused by deflating assessments and large back tax settlements. Municipal costs such as ballooning contributions to the state pension fund are also viewed as hurdles to predictable budget lines. City Finance Commissioner Howard Rattner said that New Rochelle’s financial practices offered stability going forward year to year. “The removal of the nega-

tive outlook is a major achievement and indicates that we have successfully met the fiscal challenges caused by the global economic recession beginning in late 2007,” he said. News of the improved outlook came just as the city plans to update its Comprehensive Plan, a document that municipalities adopt to serve as a zoning guidebook for future land use and governmental boards. It has been nearly 20 years since the last plan update. The city netted a $198,000 grant from the state for the update and costs associated with potential rezoning efforts. New Rochelle’s Department of Development also received a $79,200 grant to update the city’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program. That program, last updated in 1999, aims to guide waterfront development and incorporate a land use plan for the long vacant Davids Island on the bay. Mayor Noam Bramson, a Democrat, said in a recent interview that redevelopment in the downtown would have to be coordinated with both long- and shortterm projects. Any proposal, particularly one of a grand scale, could also be swayed by the level of interest from potential private companies.

“There’s always an interplay with what we’d want in an ideal world and what’s supportable in the market,” Bramson said. New Rochelle recently accepted a consultant’s report for transit-oriented development that suggested several projects around the train station. TOD has become a buzz word for municipalities, with many communities sparking economic development with mixed use clusters, condos and foot-traffic-focused storefronts built in close proximity to their rail stations. Such a development in New Rochelle could stabilize the city’s tax base, create jobs and help improve the local economy, the mayor said. “My personal belief is that residential growth is an important component of an overall transit-oriented development,” he said. The mayor said the city and school district could jointly commission studies to understand “tipping points” that might require the expansion of existing schools or even construction of new facilities. Westchester County has as many as 5 million square feet of vacant office space, according to the estimates of some commercial real estate firms. But building new competitive office space with modern amenities is also essential to the city’s long-

term fiscal health, according to officials. The recent TOD report suggested new developments that would include 1.4 million square feet of research and development space – the type of space used for medical or biotech companies. That space would replace a little more than 1 million square feet of office space. Additionally, the report suggests seeking out 483,415 square feet of retail space. Aside from the TOD analysis, there are two other studies that could have ramifications for future redevelopment. Columbia University is reviewing specific sites and will offer suggestions on how they can be utilized more creatively. Also, a recent traffic analysis identified several suggestions to change traffic patterns or reroute local thoroughfares to create a more centralized downtown area. Although most of the proposed construction or redevelopment is now in its earliest stages, one of the short-term projects may be modifying the North Avenue traffic pattern near the train station this year. The state has already committed to reconstructing the North Avenue bridge over Interstate 95 and city officials believe any work to the traffic triangle or surrounding roadways can coincide with the bridge construction.

Astorino appears likely to run for governor By Mark LungarieLLo mlungariello@westfairinc.com

A

n announcement from Republican Robert P. Astorino that he is running for governor appears imminent, even as rumors of Donald Trump’s interest in the seat continue to linger. Astorino, Westchester’s county executive, has said he would make a decision whether or not to run by the end of this month. As February comes to a close, there has been no official announcement, but Astorino has already formed an “Astorino for Governor” committee and hired Michael Lawler, a highranking state GOP executive, to head his team. Astorino’s website, robastorino.com, is now geared for the state race, showing current Gov. Andrew Cuomo with the question “Is New York winning or losing?” The site says it is “Paid for by Astorino for Governor.” The

candidate even sent his first official fundraising plea to supporters this month and has regularly taken to Twitter to bash his likely opponent. “No matter how many millions Gov. Cuomo spends trying to convince people NY is open 4 business,” Astorino wrote last week, “the truth is: we are a state that is losing.” But Trump, the real estate developer and reality TV tycoon, continues to fuel speculation of a gubernatorial run himself, most notably as keynote speaker at a Feb. 12 Manhattan Republican Committee dinner commemorating Lincoln’s birthday. The dinner came just a week after the state party announced it would hold its May nominating convention at the Hilton Westchester, formerly the Rye Town Hilton, in Westchester on Astorino’s turf. Trump also reportedly met in private in Trump Tower with the leaders of several state Republican committees who think the mil-

lionaire’s name recognition and pocketbook make him the party’s best option to try to unseat Cuomo, who has $33 million in the bank. Astorino, by comparison, had a little more than $1 million on hand as of last filing. Trump, who has often flirted with running for office, is not expected by most critics or political insiders to follow through with a campaign. His reality TV series, “The Apprentice,” is scheduled to begin its next season in spring. Trump has welcomed rumors and circled the 2010 gubernatorial race as well as several presidential races. (Under equal time laws, a presidential campaign would have forced Trump to give up his television show.) Still, Trump told party leaders he’d accept the state GOP’s nomination so long as Republicans were unified in their choice for a candidate. “The last thing you need is a primary,” he said, according to The New York Times. That unified slate is a longshot at best, with

Astorino saying his decision will not be affected by whether or not Trump runs. State GOP Chairman Ed Cox has been vocally supportive of Astorino and donated $27,000 to the county executive in January. Astorino also has the backing of the state Senate’s Republican leader, Dean Skelos, and Conservative Party Chairman Mike Long, according to the New York Post. The GOP hasn’t won a statewide election since the election of former Gov. George Pataki. The party faces a nearly two-to-one registered voter disadvantage to Democrats statewide. Astorino faced similarl numbers in Westchester County, where he won reelection last year by a convincing margin despite the Democratic advantage. Cuomo has had strong polling numbers, with 50 point advantages over potential Republican opponents, according to pollsters at upstate’s Siena College and Connecticut’s Quinnipiac University. Siena’s poll in January said 66 percent of New York voters polled viewed Cuomo favorably. In addition 54 percent gave him a positive job performance rating and 57 percent said they were prepared to re-elect him. The more recent Quinnipiac poll, released Feb. 13, showed Cuomo with a 63 percent job approval rating. He led Trump, 63 percent to 26 percent, and Astorino, 58 percent to 24 percent, according to that poll. Even though Astorino’s campaign hasn’t officially begun, he’s already taken heat from some Democrats who said the state race has distracted him from his day job. County Clerk Tim Idoni and county legislators Ken Jenkins and Peter Harckham held a Feb. 17 press conference where the trio said Astorino had spent 14 of 67 business days outside of the county since his reelection last November. Jenkins, who lost his seat as Board of Legislators chairman this year, has often clashed with the county executive. “While Mr. Astorino has been racking up frequent flier miles, Westchester County has been left out to dry,” Jenkins said. The three said that by focusing on state office, Astorino was breaking an implicit promise to serve out his four-year term. But Bill O’Reilly, a spokesman for Astorino, said in an email that Astorino has maintained his focus on cutting taxes and spending in the county. He fired back at the trio, particularly the legislators, who in 2012 were part of a Democratic majority walkout during a Board of Legislators meeting where a coalition approved the 2013 budget. “Whether it’s flipping off light switches and storming from the county board chambers, filing ridiculous annoyance lawsuits or holding nonstop political conferences, Messrs. Jenkins and Harckham have exhausted their credibility,” he said.


mrs. Green’s accused of anti-union actions Nine fired due to attempts to unionize, protesters say

By Mark LungarieLLo mlungariello@westfairinc.com

S

hoppers this month at Mrs. Green’s Natural Market in Mount Kisco were met by pickets in front of the store calling for a boycott of the market. Some of the protesters might have been familiar to regular customers of the market – they were longtime employees of the grocery chain that had recently been fired. The market fired nine employees in January for according to poor customer service, protest organizers, although a local labor group said the firings were part of a union-busting effort by the store’s owners. The store had previously been accused of unfair labor practices by employees who were trying to unionize. Westchester County Legislator Peter Harckham, a North Salem Democrat, said on his Facebook page he had joined a rally outside of the Mount Kisco Mrs. Green’s, one of about 20 locations in the U.S. and Canada focused on organic and sustainable products. “I call on all fair-minded people in Westchester to boycott all Mrs. Green’s

locations in Westchester until they hire back the fired workers, and respect their workers lawful right to organize,” Harckham said. So far, representatives of Mrs. Green’s have yet to speak specifically on the matter, but Local 1500 of the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union said it has filed federal charges with the National Labor Relations Board on behalf of the fired workers. “Mrs. Green’s mission statement says they are ‘dedicated to health sustainability,’” Harckham said, “yet they have a double standard when it comes to their workers’ right to earn a sustainable wage and collectively bargain.” Mrs. Green’s opened in 1990, started in Briarcliff Manor by Harold and June Hochberger. It grew to 11 locations by 2007 when it was bought by Planet Organic Corp., a Canadian company and owner of several supermarket chains looking to break into the U.S. organic market. Planet declared bankruptcy in 2010, according to a November 2013 Chicago Tribune report on Mrs. Green’s expansion into the Midwest. After the bankruptcy,

GO... or stay

Planet was acquired by a private equity group called Catalyst Capital Group, the Tribune said. Tony Speelman, secretary-treasurer of Local 1500, said in a blog posting that new management took over at the Mount Kisco location in December 2012, after a former manager had been fired. Speelman wrote that employees filed for a union election in May, but lost by three votes. Accusations were flung that ownership had illegally met with employees prior to the vote. Charges were filed with the labor board and employees met with local elected officials and state Assemblywoman Sandy Galef about their treatment, Speelman said. In a settlement last November, Mrs. Green’s agreed to post for 60 days a notice of employees’ federal labor rights. During that posting period, according to protest organizers, the nine employees were fired. “The fired workers were not only leading supporters of the union in the election, but were the same workers who met with politicians in the Mount Kisco area for help,” Speelman wrote in his blog posting.

Local 1500, which represents workers at Pathmark, D’Agostino’s, Fairway, and Stop and Shop grocery stores, said it will continue to rally its membership in picket lines outside of the store until the fired

“Mrs. Green’s mission statement says they are ‘dedicated to health sustainability,’ yet they have a double standard when it comes to their workers’ right to earn a sustainable wage and collectively bargain.” — Westchester County Legislator Peter Harckham workers are reinstated. Several of the fired workers had been on the job for several years, with three of the ousted workers having spent more than 10 years each at the company.

offer, then both companies threatened lawsuits if the Frank’s property were to be sold to the other. The town delayed indefinitely an auction of the property scheduled for December 2013. “When House of Sports decided to compete in the bidding and there were warnings of lawsuits, we realized the sale of Frank’s Nursery would be difficult,” said Martin Hewitt, CEO of Game On 365. “We had a discussion with the people next door and came to an agreement that we would purchase the golf range. That would give us an opportunity to build our project faster instead of having to go through the lawsuits.” House of Sports CEO Donald Scherer said Game On’s building at the golf range would change the equation. “There’s no possible way that the roads and other infrastructure could handle two projects on Dobbs Ferry because it’s a twolane road that raises questions about traffic and other environmental concerns,” Scherer said. “If the golf range project goes forward, Frank’s Nursery will most likely not be sold to us.” The town acquired the Frank’s property in a 2011 tax foreclosure. Scherer said his company would still be interested in bidding on the property, which has environmental concerns due to leaking fuel tanks formerly on the property, if the golf range construction doesn’t go forward. “We remain interested in learning more

Cameras ­— From page 1

the new city video camera systems ordinance unanimously adopted this month by the White Plains Common Council. The law, said to be the first of its kind among communities in the lower Hudson Valley, takes effect in February 2015. Expected to affect about 250 retail businesses in the city, the law applies to pharmacies; alcohol-serving or alcohol-selling restaurants, bars, convenience stores, liquor stores, groceries and delis; businesses regularly open between midnight and 4 a.m.; checkcashing businesses; second-hand dealers that buy and sell precious metals and pawn shops. Those businesses are required to install digital video cameras at or near each entrance or exit regularly used by customers or employees. The camera must be positioned to capture in full frame the faces of persons entering the establishment and, “to the extent practicable,” must scope activity within 15 feet of each entrance and exit.

about the bidding process,” said Scherer. “We made attempts to purchase Frank’s Nursery, and at this point the town is not doing anything.” If the golf range is sold to Game On, the company will need the town to approve a rezoning of the property to construct a sports facility. The corridor is currently zoned for residential, but Game On is requesting a “recreation-open space” overlay district. Game On’s CEO, partners and lawyers met with the town board at work session meetings these to discuss the proposal. The town board discussed ways to revise the proposal to specify the buffer distance between residential areas and the sports facility and the maximum height for the dome that would cover a proposed field house. The Westchester Field House would include indoor sports facilities with an AstroTurf track, multi-use courts, sportsrelated businesses, and health practitioners and an outdoor recreational space for sports teams. The next step is for the town to vote on whether to be the lead agency on the state environmental review process at its Feb. 26 board meeting. If the town board agrees, the next step is for Game On to submit site plans to the town planning board. It could take another two months before Game On submits a site plan, Hewitt said. After that, Game On must go through an extensive environmental review process and multiple hearings before any zoning change can take place. “We’re excited to move the process forward,” Hewitt said. “We have the right part-

ners to be management facilitators and run the sports programs, and as we bring on new partners in the sports field, we’ll provide tre-

mendous opportunities for the community of Greenburgh and Westchester. We hope to have our doors open in 18 months or less.”

The video cameras must record at a minimum speed of eight frames per second and produce “easily discernible images recorded at all times.” The cameras must operate nonstop during business hours and for two hours after the business closes. They must be maintained in good working condition. But no audio with the camera images: sound capability in systems is not allowed by the new law. Businesses must index video recordings by dates and times and save them for at least seven days. The saved recordings must be kept in a locked receptacle, preferably in an area of the store accessible only to authorized personnel. The camera recordings must be turned over to city’s public safety department or building department for official investigations or when approved by commissioners of those departments or their designees. White Plains Commissioner of Public Safety David E. Chong, in a statement supporting its adoption by the Common Council, said the law was “carefully crafted” by the city law department and was proposed “to improve public safety and security by

deterring persons from committing crimes and/or acts of disorder and to assist with the identification of violators.” Common Council member John Kirkpatrick, an attorney, said the ordinance was developed in an “extended process” that included input from merchants through the White Plains Business Improvement District. Kevin Nunn, executive director of the city’s downtown BID, could not be reached for comment on the impact of the law and the BID’s role in drafting it. Kirkpatrick said public safety department staff plans to visit affected stores over the next year to review requirements for the camera systems. “I think that’s an excellent idea,” he said. At Aries Wines & Sprits, Tony Russo and business partner Andrey Russo said they received no formal notice from the city that the law was being considered, but rather had learned about it in a television news segment. “I’m on both sides of the issue,” Tony Russo said. “On one hand, I need surveillance cameras here…We’re in a high-risk business” for thefts. “Look around. There’s money all over the place – and it’s liquid.” Russo said he was shopping for a video

camera system before the law was introduced. “We’re a perennial target” and a camera “is a deterrent,” he said. For his business, “To install a system is a couple of grand at least,” he said, in addition to maintenance costs. An owner’s investment of $2,000 or more “will be a substantial outlay” in an economy in which many retail merchants still struggle, he said. “It’s something I wanted to do, but why should I be forced to do it? I think it’s an infringement on personal rights,” Russo said. “It smacks of Big Brother, it really does. That’s the part that bothers me.” “Is this (law) necessary?” Andrey Russo said. “I think it’s an extra pain in the ass and extra expense.” At Saxon Pharmacy on Mamaroneck Avenue, owner Atul Modi is among the city merchants who won’t need to budget an additional expense to comply with the new ordinance. “We already have a camera,” said Modi, who has owned the drug store at 460 Mamaroneck Ave. for about 15 years. “It’s for our own safety.” “It is very useful” in surveillance of both employees and customers for thefts, he said.

Where’s your social road map?

I

t seems that every week a new social media site or tool is released. While some of these tools are useful, many of them are reincarnations (with different formats) of existing tools that perform largely the same function. Nevertheless, they usually attract users and enough media attention that they are often – and surprisingly – bought for wildly inflated prices by companies seeking to assemble a digital marketing product suite. IBM and Salesforce.com are two recent examples of companies following this purchase-and-assemble strategy. This leads to the obvious question: How important is a social media suite? It can offer many services and insights that can improve your marketing effectiveness and grow your company. It can also be expensive and often time consuming. Many suites include the following capabilities: • Scheduling and management of posts and campaigns; • Analytics; • Competitor tracking; • Content curation, sharing and promotion;

• Relationship nurturing; and • Brand watch and conversation monitoring. What these social suites overlook are the many small businesses that need social media marketing, but have neither the time nor money to effectively utilize them. While some of these businesses can – and do – hire a marketing company (like mine) that might utilize these tools on their behalf and achieve a high ROI that usually exceeds 200 percent, for many companies this might still be construed as overkill for several reasons. Instead, what they need to do is to construct a road map. A road map is an essential part of any social media campaign. In its most simplistic form, think of it as a big calendar in which you schedule the date and time for your social media posts, comments and the like. While this sounds very similar to Hootsuite or one of many similar products, it is only one part – albeit an important part – of what you need to for a successful campaign. Your road map should include an editorial channel for the strategic placement of

content on the handful of social platforms most frequented by your target market, escalation processes for customer service and complaints, the frequency that you check your analytics, conversation monitoring and additional tracking and management of any marketing or sales campaigns you are currently executing. While this sounds like a lot, once mapped out, it becomes quite straightforward. Best of all, it only requires a handful of easily managed programs. Underperforming social campaigns in many companies are often due to the lack of a road map and the necessary support it requires. In many cases, social media functions are relegated to a single individual with additional responsibilities and haphazard results. Without the knowledge, time and planning to produce an effective strategy and road map, this unfortunate person is often reduced to merely producing updates and (sometimes) tweets on Facebook and Twitter, at best. Successful social media campaigns require consistent postings and attentiveness. The creation and implementation of

a road map that requires participation from many of the company’s employees and the management and tracking by that single employee who is tasked with the company’s social media strategy is far more likely to be successful. This creation and management can also be done by an outside company with the majority of the work still be performed by the company. As Yogi Berra once said, “If you don’t know where you’re going, chances are you will end up somewhere else.” Without a social media road map, you will do a lot of traveling while likely never reaching your destination.

State tech exports down

N

ew York’s global exports of technology merchandise dropped nearly 5 percent in 2012, though the state retained its ranking as the fifth largest exporting state in the U.S., according to a recent report by TechAmerica Foundation. Technology merchandise exports from New York totaled $6.6 billion in 2012, decreasing by $320 million or 4.6 percent from 2011, according to “Tech Trade in the States 2014.” The report looks at tech trade flows at the national level and tech goods exports for all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Technology exports accounted for 8.1 percent of New York’s $81 billion in total exports in 2012, placing the state 29th in percentage share of technology exports. New York ranked fourth in communications equipment exports at $1.4 billion; fifth in computer equipment exports at $1.8 billion, and sixth in measuring and control exports at $1.9 billion. Canada was New York’s largest technology trading partner, importing nearly $967 million in tech products. The United Kingdom was a distant second as techtrading partner, with $467 million in

imports from the U.S. Tech exports to Hong Kong totaled $458 million. Tech exports supported 48,600 jobs in New York in 2012, according to the report, which draws on government statistics. Matthew Kazmierczak, vice president of research at the nonprofit TechAmerica Foundation, in a press release said the report “identifies the clear role that technology trade plays in the New York economy, supporting thousands of New Yorkers. ...Strengthening and expanding trade agreements around the world will help protect and expand the reach of our technology industry.” While New York’s technology sector exports declined in 2012, national exports of tech goods grew by 1.3 percent or $2.7 billion, totaling $204 billion. Those exports accounted for more than 13 percent of all U.S. exports and supported 1.5 million jobs, according to the report. The U.S., though, still was left with a tech trade deficit of $151 billion in 2012, according to the report, with technology imports totaling $355 billion. That was an increase of 3.2 percent or $11 billion from 2011. – John Golden

Study says child care benefits businesses By CrySTaL kang ckang@westfairinc.com

W

ith child care costs on the rise, a recent study compiled by the Child Care Council of Westchester Inc. examined how making child care accessible and affordable to parents can benefit businesses and increase productivity. Nationally, 45 percent of working parents miss at least one day of work every six months because of child care problems, the study said. Each parent/employee without child care costs employers $650 to $1,000 annually for unplanned absences at work. Employees without stable child care cost employers $3 billion annually, the report said. Conversely, employers who invested in child care support for employees benefitted from reduced turnover and absenteeism, increased productivity and better retention and recruitment, according to the report, which cross-referenced a Cornell University study. When employers provided subsidies for child care, employees were more productive. Nationally, about 68 percent of the participants who reported using their sick days for child care emergencies do so less frequently if they receive child care subsidies. In the same Cornell study, when working parents must handle child care on their own, there was an increase in tardiness and work-family conflicts. The report showed work performance and productivity level decreased by nearly 45 percent and 35 percent, respectively. Nearly half of Westchester residents are in the labor force, according to the website for Child Care Council of Westchester. More than 41,000 Westchester children under 6 years old have working parents, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. The council, a nonprofit resource and referral agency that helps families with early care and education programs, provides free services that can help parents compare prices and decide which provider best suits them. “There are 760 regulated child care businesses in Westchester, and that doesn’t include unlicensed programs,” said Kathleen Halas, executive director of the council. “We’re advocating more assistance in child care benefits for families supporting themselves financially.” The study, which is a compilation of the council’s data from 2012, said that the agency responded to more than 3,500

calls and inquiries from parents working in 1,700 Westchester businesses in major companies, including PepsiCo Inc., IBM Corp., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Westchester Medical Center and Yonkers Public Schools. The majority of parents in Westchester who call the council work for the New York City Department of Education or Montefiore Medical Center. “What we heard all across the board is that child care is very expensive, and it’s a financial burden,” Halas said. In Westchester, the average cost of fulltime child care for a 3-year-old is more than $13,000 a year, said Halas. New York is second most expensive state for child care, and Westchester is near the top of the most expensive counties for child care, she added.

Sweat the details when setting goals I’m struggling with prioritizing the short term (1-3 years) and the long term (4-5 years or more). Seems like one gets our attention, gets on track and we forget to look at the other one. My fear is that people will get discouraged if they think nothing is getting done. And I’m concerned about what we’re trying to accomplish, is that realistic. Sometimes it feels like we’re all over the place.

THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: Make a list of goals to help you stay on point while looking toward the business’ future. Work the plan. Draw on past successes when things get tough. Build a culture of plan, execute, follow through and deliver. Be a role model for the people around you. Bring employees and managers together. Get everyone on the same page by involving them in a companywide planning process. Teach everyone about the value of building and working a plan. Set both short- and long-term goals. Check that short term leads to long term. Turn goals into actions by planning out details. Ask people to build individual and department plans consistent with the company’s overall goals. Relate goals to personal needs and objectives. For example if the goal is to build sales, ask individuals to brainstorm how increased sales will make their lives better. What is it that they want if the company’s revenue and profits go up? Differences of opinion will inevitably arise about which goals to pursue and how to achieve those goals. Embrace differences rather than avoiding them. Include voices in the company that normally aren’t heard. The quiet ones may have key points to make that can help to insure a plan’s success. Build ways to measure how things are going. Use the results of actions taken, positive or negative, to boost motivation. Avoid getting mired in a moment of failure by focusing on where to go next while simultaneously dealing with immediate roadblocks. Willingly face challenges. For example, more sales might mean more work developing and delivering products or services. Stress points might blow up. Ask people to brainstorm what could go wrong. Face obstacles by planning out

how to avoid or deal with them. That kind of exercise will help everyone be more prepared and confident when problems inevitably do crop up. When things do go wrong, put energy towards figuring out solutions. Avoid tearing the company apart trying to figure out who did what wrong. Of course it’s important to break down problems in order to understand them and not repeat mistakes. But when the focus is on moving forward to a better place, it’s more likely that the team will use breakdowns as opportunities to learn and grow. Teach your people about the value of working together, that there is strength in numbers. When one person gets tired or frustrated, another can pick up the slack. A team can accomplish geometrically more than any one person. Use that team concept to keep up momentum. Show employees that you are concerned about their welfare. Express caring by focusing on individual development and security. Use the company as a vehicle to help people achieve their individual dreams. Remember that people are always watching what you do as much as, or more than, what you say. If you want people to be enthusiastically engaged, you’ll have to wear that enthusiasm like a mantle as you face the difficult times in the business. That said, it is also important that you let people see the vulnerabilities – your concerns that the plan may not work – so that they can assist with building the solutions. Inspire others by acknowledging the truth of where things stand and then focusing everyone’s energy on going forward to achieve the possibilities of where you, and they, want to be.

INBRIEF

UNITED WAY BEGINS SEARCH FOR NEW CEO

Naomi Adler, CEO and president of United Way of Westchester and Putnam, will leave the organization in April after more than a decade with the group. ADLER Adler served as the president of United Way of Rockland for nearly seven years before she became the CEO and president of the United Way of Westchester and Putnam six years ago. She has been an advocate for emergency food and shelter assistance and bolstered the 2-1-1 help line for residents in the lower Hudson Valley, which took 25,000 calls during and after Hurricane Sandy. She has worked with volunteers and staff to create programs for underprivileged children and single mothers, according to the group. Adler will step into her new role as the CEO of Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia in May. The United Way of Westchester and Putnam, which invests more than $12 million annually into communities, established a board-led search committee to fill Adler’s position. “We are looking for a very strong candidate who will be a passionate advocate for critical programs such as United Way’s 2-1-1 and make strides in our education, income and health initiatives,” said Gregory D. Bassuk, chair of the organization’s board of directors and COO of IndexIQ. Candidates can view the full job description and application process online.

The new partners also have launched a school nurse education program in which nurse practitioners from the Montefiore children’s hospital will lead educational programs and give practical, hands-on guidance to school nurses throughout the 33 school districts in the county. The full-day programs provide in-depth training on how to check blood sugar levels, operate pump devices and manage care for children with diabetes in the school environment. Type 1 diabetes “impacts thousands of people throughout Westchester,” Margie Ostrower, executive director of the Westchester County Chapter of JDRF, said in a press release. “Working with CHAM clinicians will allow us to target the disease on a local level, reinforcing our commitment to improving the lives of people with T1D and emphasizing our position as a leading global

organization focused on T1D research.” The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation provides $530 million in support for Type 1 diabetes research projects worldwide.

Think Tank or Shark Tank? Actually, on Day One of Health Tech ’14, “Entrepreneurs’ Edge” is a little bit of both! CALLING ALL ENTREPRENEURS!

Among those participating in “Entrepreneurs’ Edge” are: • Stephen M. Davis, Partner, Goodwin Procter LLP, a law firm that represents companies in the biotech and health tech sectors

On Day One of the May 7–8 conference Health Tech ‘14: Fueling Innovation in Westchester, all startups, growth companies and the investors and financiers who fund them, will have the rare opportunity to meet and discover new market and investing opportunities. Davis

• Andy DiSimone, Digital Director, Start Up Health, which provides entrepreneurs with resources and access to capital • Alex Fair, Co-founder, MedStartr, a crowdfunding site • Jack Kopnisky, President & CEO, Sterling National Bank, a financial services firm that offers commercial, business, and consumer banking products and services; Chairman, WCA BLUEPRINT Accelerator Network • Tracy Warren, General Partner, Battelle Ventures, a venture capital fund focusing on health and life sciences, energy and environment, and security

Day One of the conference features panelists who will share the hottest trends and news in the innovation sector. Then, attendees will have the chance to meet with the panelists, financiers, and others who can offer great advice, leads, and maybe even a post-conference meeting.

DiSimone

On Day Two (May 8), participants meet and network with leaders from America’s most innovative health and technology companies, and learn about their latest breakthroughs. We’ll take you from IBM’s Watson and Regeneron’s discoveries, to innovations in healthcare delivery, apps for mobile health, technology transfer, and infrastructure.

Fair

• Entrepreneurs: find out the best strategies to attract investor attention, then network with business development leaders and financiers, and get feedback on your ideas. • Investors: meet the next generation of innovators. • Connections!

Innovation Conference Highlights Westchester’s Place in the Northeast’s Growing Health Tech Economy Experts agree: Considering Westchester County— where space is affordable and plentiful—as a home for health and tech companies absolutely makes sense. “Start-ups will have to look outside of Manhattan,” notes Stephen M. Davis, a partner at the New York City law firm of Goodwin Procter LLP, which represents companies in the biotech and life sciences sectors. “California, particularly the Bay Area, has seen huge growth in digital health and biotech, and a large amount of venture capital is invested there. But New York and Westchester have a huge advantage compared to that area and Silicon Valley—mass transit. And Westchester is affordable for companies. You can’t beat Metro

North, proximity to international markets, or walking to work.” Davis adds, “Attracting and keeping human capital is key to startup success and lifestyle issues, such as affordability and the ease of commuting, can play a major role in winning this battle.” The BLUEPRINT for Westchester/Westchester County Association’s spring conference, Health Tech ’14: Fueling Innovation in Westchester will showcase the county’s leading innovators in biotech and health tech in Westchester; identify new areas of opportunity and invention; consider the county’s assets to support entrepreneurs; and provide networking and collaboration opportunities for scientists, start ups, business leaders and business mentors.

Antitrust fears steer bankrupt hospital to Westchester savior BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

W

ith state and federal regulators ready to block a sale to a competing Hudson Valley hospital system, officials at bankrupt St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie this month accepted a purchase offer from Westchester Medical Center that would keep the 100-year-old hospital campus operating with what St. Francis officials called “minimal disruption” to existing services. A late shift in the 2-month-old Bankruptcy Court proceeding left the first-year CEO of Health Quest Systems Inc., an apparent loser in the deal, critical of regulators who effectively thwarted the sale of St. Francis Hospital to Health Quest. Health Quest operates Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie as well as Northern Dutchess Hospital in Rhinebeck and Putnam Hospital Center in Carmel. Critics of the proposed sale to Health Quest, led by physicians affiliated with St. Francis, claimed the takeover would give Health Quest a monopoly on hospital services in Dutchess and Putnam counties and overburden emergency and other medical care staff in consolidated facilities at Vassar Brothers. Although Health Quest officials said they were committed to maintaining jobs at St. Francis and hiring all qualified employees, Physician Friends of St. Francis Hospital in a letter to the Bankruptcy Court claimed more than 1,000 jobs would be lost in a Health Quest takeover. St. Francis employs about 2,000 full-time and part-time employees. Unsaddled as stalking horse bidder in the bankruptcy sale by antitrust rumblings, Health Quest recently withdrew the $24.15 million purchase offer it made as sole prospective bidder in mid-December, when St. Francis filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. St. Francis officials on Feb. 10 canceled a scheduled auction of hospital assets and struck an alternative deal with Westchester County Health Care Corp., the public-benefit corporation that operates Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla. U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Cecelia G. Morris is expected to set a May 9 closing date for the sale. Health Quest’s stated disappointment

over the pending sale to a rival bidder might be somewhat salved by the $1 million breakup fee that Health Quest will be paid by debtor St. Francis when the sale closes. Health Quest and Westchester Medical Center were the only bidders for the 333-bed hospital, known for its mental health and addiction services and Level II trauma center for emergency care. Arthur A. Nizza, who has served as president and CEO of St. Francis Hospital since last August, in court documents said the hospital and affiliate entities had an operating loss of $7.7 million in 2012 and gross revenues of nearly $150 million. An attorney for St. Francis reportedly said the offer by Westchester Medical Center was $18 million to $19 million better than Health Quest’s stalking horse bid. The asset purchase agreement entered in Bankruptcy Court on Feb. 10 calls for a $3.5 million cash payment at closing by Westchester Medical Center, which also will assume an unstated amount of debtor liabilities. St. Francis in its first-day bankruptcy filings listed approximately $137.7 million in liabilities as of last July 31 and net assets totaling approximately $17.2 million. As part of the purchase deal, Westchester Medical Center also would issue exchange bonds to buyers of the approximately $37.47 million in bonds obtained by St. Francis Hospital since 2004. The hospital defaulted on those bonds in late 2012 and early 2013, which led to the decision to explore a possible sale or merger to another health care provider and other potential uses for the St. Francis campus, Nizza said in a court document. Westchester Medical Center is expected to operate the Poughkeepsie hospital under a management services agreement prior to the sale closing. In response to the Business Journal, a spokesman for Westchester Medical Center issued this statement regarding the St. Francis Hospital takeover: “Following the entry of a final order by the court, we will be communicating more broadly about the plans and process over the coming weeks and months. We appreciate the hard work that has gone into developing a plan to continue and expand the quality

and breadth of health care services offered in the mid-Hudson Valley region. We are excited about the future and thankful for the outpouring of support and enthusiasm we have received from the Saint Francis and Westchester Medical Center families and the community at large.” The Valhalla corporation in court documents this month said it planned to “enhance and strengthen” all current services at St. Francis “while introducing additional advanced-care offerings locally to more patients in areas such as orthopedics, cancer, neurosciences, trauma and critical care, and cardiovascular.” At Health Quest, CEO Luke McGuinness in a statement released after the WMC purchase offer said “intervention” by state and federal regulatory authorities forced Health Quest trustees to drop out of the bidding process, although its stalking horse bid “would have provided the best outcome for those seeking local access to affordable, high-quality care.” Letters from state and federal attorneys to lawyers representing St. Francis in the bankruptcy proceeding indicate regulators were prepared to let the Health Quest purchase go through as long as no other bidders surfaced for the severely financially distressed hospital, where officials were seeking a quick transfer of assets in order to continue operations. Attorney Susan Raitt, an attorney in the Northeast regional office of the Federal Trade Commission, in a letter written one month before the hospital filed for bankruptcy, requested information from a St. Francis attorney for a joint, “non-public” preliminary investigation by the FTC and the New York Office of the Attorney General to determine whether the proposed deal with Health Quest might violate antitrust laws by substantially reducing competition. On Dec. 17, the day St. Francis filed its Chapter 11 petition, Raitt wrote in an email to the same attorney for St. Francis: “Based upon the current information we have on St. Francis’ financial situation, and assuming there is no alternative purchaser, FTC staff would not recommend a challenge to the acquisition by Health Quest of St. Francis.” On Feb. 10, when Westchester Medical Center submitted its purchase offer, Raitt

notified the St. Francis attorney that FTC staff “has significant concerns” that Health Quest’s acquisition of St. Francis “could result in a substantial loss of competition in acute care inpatient services” in the Poughkeepsie area and could result in “higher prices and reduced quality and access.” Raitt said the FTC would ask St. Francis and Health Quest to delay closing on the deal until the investigation was completed. She said it was “highly likely” the FTC would go to court to block the purchase or overturn the sale or Health Quest’s ownership if it went through. On Feb. 11, the state attorney general’s office weighed in with the same opinion heard from federal regulators by the St. Francis attorney. Eric J. Stock, chief of the state’s antitrust bureau, said his office’s preliminary investigation raised “significant concern” that the proposed deal with Health Quest “would combine two significant and direct competitors” and leave Health Quest as sole provider of inpatient hospital services in Dutchess and Putnam counties. Both Raitt at the FTC and Stock said the alternative bid by Westchester Medical Center did not raise antitrust concerns. Raitt assured the St. Francis attorney that a WMC purchase would not run the risk of extended delays or legal challenges by the federal agency. McGuinness, though, in the wake of Health Quest’s withdrawal said officials there were convinced that making St. Francis part of Vassar Brothers and the Health Quest system “would have helped drive down medical costs for our entire region and would lead to better access to enhanced medical services for the entire service area.” The Health Quest CEO added that the position of FTC and state antitrust regulators “runs counter to the goals of the Affordable Care Act, the New York State Berger Commission recommendations, the public policy declared by the state legislature in recent statutory enactments, and the overall goal of state and federal policy makers to reduce duplication, promote preventative care and improve patient outcomes.” McGuinness declined to comment further on those views to the Business Journal.

Investing in customers and banking on their support

C

HV

hristina McCoy oversees operations at a bank on the top of a hill, but the M&T Bank manager in Cold Spring feels like she is on top of the entire world. Bursting with energy and enthusiasm, McCoy can be seen rushing across the bank floor to procure an investment document for a customer or hurrying to assist a departing senior citizen on a cane. The bank at 40 Chestnut St. sits on a peak directly across from the Foodtown strip mall, which houses several businesses, including the community’s only other bank. “Our location allows us plenty of parking spaces for customers without the hassle

of dodging vehicles driving through a busy shopping center,” McCoy says. The location also provides for a drive-through window equipped with a semi-automatic transaction drawer, a tube transaction carrier and an intercom system. The six employees reporting to McCoy share her people-oriented skills and greet customers by name. Their congeniality is contagious, McCoy says. “It’s a friendly atmosphere where customers talk to one another,” she says. “I’ve seen one business owner get to know another and exchange business cards. It’s a wonderful experience.” Networking is built into McCoy’s nature. If a customer chances to mention a need for a particular business or personal service, she is quick to say, “We have a customer that does

that very thing.” And, a connection ensues. Although raised in the Bronx as one of two children, she qualified for Brooklyn Technical High School and emerged from the arduous curriculum to enter Dowling College in Suffolk County, where she earned a Bachelor of Business Arts degree. Clutching her new degree, she met with recruiters from Barclay’s Bank, which had a management development program. “It involved a lot of travel,” she says of the two years during which she earned an American Institute of Banking Certificate and an American Banking Association Certificate. But, yearning to be near home, she settled in Yonkers and spent 17 years with The Bank of New York, remaining when Chase bought that bank.

Networking on behalf of customers is an art form for Christina McCoy, manager of the M&T Bank in Cold Spring.

From retail she moved into middle market, dealing with relationships with clients having a minimum of $20 million in sales. “But I missed having customer contact and a team of people to develop,” she says. “A number of people I knew had come to M&T. The bank had a community feel.” She has been in her present position for five and a half years. McCoy speaks enthusiastically about the quality of her bank employees. “They will go out into the parking lot to do transactions for seniors with difficulty coming in,” she says. She recalls the new customer who came to the bank on behalf of his 95-year-old father who could not get out of the house. “Multiple employees offered to go to the man’s distant house to take the required signature in the presence of a bank employee,” she says. She credits an alert teller for rescuing a senior citizen from fraud. “She noted that this customer was seeking new checkbooks frequently and writing, for him, an unprecedented 200 checks a month,” she says. “We located his power of attorney, who looked into it and found he was receiving bills for items he had never ordered and was paying them to these questionable sources.” The M&T Bank was founded in 1856 as the Manufacturers and Traders Bank. Today it numbers 725 branches and 1,700 ATMs and has selected a green waving flag as its emblem. Its locations are primarily along the East coast. McCoy commutes from Pawling. Her son, Jason, and three grandchildren reside in Danbury, Conn. Challenging Careers focuses on the exciting and unusual business lives of Hudson Valley residents.

VASSAR AWARDED $750,000 FOR ARTS PROGRAm VASSAR COLLEGE has been awarded a $750,000 grant for a multiyear initiative titled “The Creative Arts Across Disciplines”

to enhance integration of the creative arts across the college curriculum from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The program builds on the college’s Mellon-supported Visiting Artists at Vassar pilot project of 2010-11. That project featured residencies by a playwright and a visual artist working with non-arts departments and programs. Thousands of people from the campus and Poughkeepsie communities became involved as well through outreach activities, performances and a memorable installation of white flags representing all the member states of the U.N. suspended from cables on the college chapel lawn. The new effort will utilize artist residencies as well, but will also feature thematic programming, faculty and curricular development initiatives and student creative projects to accomplish these goals: • Enhance the impact of curricular tie-ins of visiting artist programs; • Broaden collaboration within the arts, as well as between arts and other disciplines; • Foster opportunities for boundary-crossing artistic inquiry and creation; and • Deepen the engagement of Vassar students across the curriculum with methods and ideas from the arts The grant will run from 2014-17 and each year will focus on a particular theme. “This grant presents an exciting opportunity for us to reinforce the integral role of the creative arts among the liberal arts,” said Jonathan Chenette, dean of the faculty.
