New quarters for New Rochelle MDs BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

L

ooking to keep its current physicians and attract new ones in the nation’s changing health care landscape, Sound Shore Medical Center has turned to a private partner to develop an approximately $35 million medical office building that would also house some hospital services on its New Rochelle campus. Landmark Healthcare Facilities L.L.C., based in Milwaukee, plans to build, own and manage the class-A office building proposed to be built on existing hospital parking lot space. The facility would be connected to the main hospital building. Physicians leasing space in the fivestory, 100,000-square-foot building would be offered a share in a 30 percent ownership stake that Landmark provides staff physicians at no initial cost to the doctors. Anthony Lampasona, president of Landmark Healthcare, said the ownership interest is a

financial incentive for doctors to lease space in the office building, lowering their occupancy costs by 25 to 30 percent. Physicians can choose to sell their ownership interest to Landmark or other tenants. Landmark, which has developed about 25 outpatient buildings across the country, will put up $8.2 million in cash equity for the construction project. The developer also plans to build a 530-space parking structure on the campus at an estimated cost of $15 million to $16 million, Lampasona said. Annual parking revenue is projected to almost evenly match debt service on the hospital-owned structure, he said. As a private, for-profit developer, Landmark will sign a ground lease for the building site and pay real estate taxes on what is now tax-exempt property. Lampasona said his company hopes to begin construction by December after receiving required site plan and environmental approvals from city officials. “We’re ready to New quarters, page 6

he Hudson Valley construction industry, pummeled by job losses since the recession, could be in for yet another blow if Congress fails to pass a long-term transportation funding measure that could create 113,000 jobs in New York state. Talks under way since May between the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives

over a long-term extension of the federal transportation appropriations bill have stalled over a disagreement on how the measure should be funded. With the current bill set to expire June 30, Senate and House leaders have set a mid-June deadline for any long-term agreement to be reached.

An American comeback for manufacturing BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

F

rom his vantage point in Westchester County’s business community, Leonard “Len” Vallender saw his industry neglected for years and all but disappear as the county remade its economy in an office-park sprawl of corporate headquarters. At Fenbar Precision Machinists Inc. in Thornwood, Vallender, the company’s president and sole owner, saw small manufacturing neighbors close up on Commerce Street in the ’80s and ’90s. Local customers for Fenbar’s machined products and machinery repairs, such as IBM, General Foods and Nestle, relocated or reduced production operations in the county. “A lot of our customers moved away,” he said. Watching Westchester business leaders and politicians promote economic development, “They don’t do anything for manufacturing,” he said. “They do it for restaurants, they do it for medical. I guess it’s harder with manufacturing.” Having served for about nine years on the Westchester-Putnam Workforce Investment Board, Vallender watched as job training programs and federal grant funds were directed to various industries. “We did hospitality. We did biotech. We’re going to make all the buildings green,” he said. But manufacturing was largely ignored as an area of the economy that could spur job growth here. “I’m saying, ‘You’re not putting 20 million people back to work in this country. The jobs aren’t there. There’s no manufacturing.’” “If you want jobs, you’re not getting them all cutting grass. You’ve got to go back to manufacturing.” Now Vallender sees signs that Westchester leaders increasingly share his view. And some of Fenbar’s globally distributed customers are bringing back their outsourced manufacturing operations to the U.S. Manufacturing has begun to get the attention it deserves as the historical mainstay of the Hudson Valley and national economy, in Vallender’s view.

Trained as an engineer and the son of an immigrant tool and die maker in Mount Vernon, Vallender was 26 when he bought an interest in Fenbar in 1968. He moved the company from Valhalla, where it started in 1954, to its current location in Thornwood in 1979. The company has grown from a two-man or three-man shop to one with 13 employees and dozens of manually operated and computercontrolled machines that span a roughly 40-year history of declining employment and rising productivity in American manufacturing. On one of Fenbar’s $180,000 computerized machines, “The work we do today, if we did that with the old equipment of the ‘80s and before, you would need 30 or 40 employees” to operate, Vallender said. For a part that would have taken three machinists working 11 minutes to make, “We make the part completely in 45 seconds today” with computerized equipment. “It turns all day, through lunch, doesn’t take breaks.” The conversion to computer-controlled machine tools in the ’80s “really changed the whole industry,” he said. “Through the ’80s and ’90s, we had a complete technological change. The technology from 1990 to today has just exploded.” With that explosion, “What we did was we took all the (manufacturing) work and sent it out of the country.” Vallender said the U.S. has lost more than 40,000 machine shops in roughly the last decade. In his early years at Fenbar, “We worked just locally, right around here,” he said. Though corporate giants in Westchester such as PepsiCo and IBM remain customers, “Now we ship parts all over the world. No more factories are here.” Duracell, a metal-stamping customer with which Fenbar worked in the ’70s to develop the first lithium batteries, relocated and later sold off its manufacturing division in North Carolina. At his Thornwood business, though, Vallender recently has seen what industry analysts and investors also have observed. “Right now, a lot of my customers are bringing everything back into the coun-

try” after outsourcing to China and other low-cost countries. President Obama and industry insiders have called it the start of a manufacturing renaissance in America. Vallender said customers are returning to the U.S. because their foreign production costs have gone up and the quality of outsourced production “is far from stellar.” Delivery times are another factor in the reverse exodus of manufacturers. “If he’s going to China” to place an order, “he has to do it six months before,” Vallender said. “I can do it in two to three weeks, hopefully.” “The textile industry is not coming back here,” he said. But the aircraft and gun industries and heavy equipment manufacturers such as Caterpillar are again opening

College advisory committee, “I’ve been fighting for years that math, design and materials and safety be taught in school,” Vallender said. “But they weren’t getting the students, because in Westchester everyone wants to work on Wall Street.” That has changed in the four years since the worst recession in U.S. history left millions of both white-collar and bluecollar workers unemployed. Now college graduates are applying for machinist jobs at Fenbar, he said. The recession left $500,000 of customers’ finished products on shelves in the Thornwood plant, but the debt-free business survived, and without layoffs, doing repair work when “nobody was buying new.” As for the unclaimed customer

plants in America. A resurgence of manufacturing will require government and private companies to invest in employee training, he said. That has been absent since the federal government eliminated a four-year apprenticeship program that combined academic and factory training for manufacturing employees. “I can’t take a kid off the street and put him in here” on a machine, Vallender said. “OSHA (the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration) kills me” if a worker is injured or does not wear proper safety equipment on the job.

orders, “Now I’m selling it to them again,” Vallender said. Representing the manufacturing sector on the bi-county workforce investment board, he is overseeing a $33,600 federal grant awarded this year for training in advanced manufacturing. Fenbar and two of its customers in the county, Curtis Instruments and BASF Corp., will send employees to Westchester Community College for courses that start this summer. Vallender has sent letters offering the training to 40 other companies in the area. “That’s what we’ve got to do,” he said. “We’ve got to retrain the people who want to come into this.”

Reversal of fortune

Manufacturing returning to U.S. BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

A

t Saw Mill Capital L.L.C., a middlemarket private equity firm in Briarcliff Manor, partner Scott Budoff sees “a budding renaissance” in American manufacturing. Shifting trade winds have begun to bring back manufacturing operations from China to America in a reversal of the outsourcing trend that has cost the U.S. about 6 million factory jobs in the past decade. In the next decade, that shift could create an estimated 1 million jobs in the reinvigorated U.S. industry and another 2 million support jobs. At his 15-year-old firm, a control investor in manufacturing, specialty distribution and industrial service companies valued at $25 million to $200 million, “Our activity level is off the chart,” Budoff told an audience of manufacturing and finance professionals in Rye, where he was keynote speaker at the fifth annual manufacturing and logistics conference of the Association for Corporate Growth New York. In the first half of 2012, “The quality of deals is as good as I’ve seen it in six, seven years,” he said. Manufacturing profits reached a historic high in the U.S. in 2011, he said. President Obama pointed to the creation of 334,000 industry jobs since 2010 as signaling a “manufacturing renaissance,” and nearly 500,000 manufacturing jobs have been created in the last 2 1/2 years, Budoff said. Those hiring gains, though, are dwarfed by the approximately 8 million manufacturing jobs that have been shed in the U.S. since the late 1970s. Despite a 37 percent employment decline in manufacturing since 1980, manufacturing output in the same period grew by 84 percent, Budoff said. The U.S. has more than tripled its manufacturing productivity since 1979 and remains second only to China in it global production share. “In the last year, there’s been a tremendous amount of change going on in manufacturing,” Budoff said. The change is driven by China and the U.S. and is expected to accelerate. Budoff in his remarks referred to a 2011 report by the Boston Consulting Group, “Made in America, Again.” Analysts in that report said the cost gap between the U.S. and China will virtually close within five years for many goods consumed in North America. That cost leveling is due to a combination of rising Chinese wages, higher U.S. productivity, a weaker dollar and shipping and inventory factors. Southern states, rather than New York and the Northeast, will be among the least expensive production sites in the industrialized world. Analysts expect companies to be building more capacity in the U.S. to supply North America, especially for production with rela-

tively small labor costs and modest volumes, such as auto parts, construction equipment and appliances. China, according to the BCG report, will remain an important manufacturing platform for Asia and Europe and for textiles and other goods with relatively high labor content and produced in high volumes. During this decade, manufacturing will shift from “low-cost country” to “local production for local consumption,” Budoff told his Rye audience. Companies heavily vested in manufacturing in China might be putting excessive risk on their supply chain, he said. For some companies, a long-term strategy of Chinese manufacturing for export here is “a failed strategy,” he said. Boston Consulting Group analysts said companies should do a “rigorous, productby-product analysis of their global supply networks that fully accounts for total costs, rather than just factory wages,” as the U.S. becomes a more attractive manufacturing option. Analysts cautioned that the reallocation of global manufacturing is in its very early phases and will vary from industry to industry. “But we believe that it will become more pronounced over the next five years, especially as companies face decisions about where to add future capacity.” For manufacturing investors such as Saw Mill Capital, “The competitive environment is fierce” in middle-market acquisitions, Budoff said. Private equity investors are sitting on $425 billion of “dry powder,” he said, while financing only 13 percent of middle-market mergers and acquisitions. With “lots and lots of buyers” looking to make deals, properties are trading at “about 1½ times of what they would in normal times,” Budoff said. While lenders are looking to work with private equity companies on deals, lending remains “a very choppy market where things very quickly change from positive to negative,” Budoff said. The budding manufacturing renaissance in the U.S. does face potential obstacles in its way. “Technology transfer to China is a central trend,” Budoff said. “Protecting that intellectual property is critical” for U.S. companies. “The single biggest challenge the U.S. manufacturing market will face over the next 10 years is the skills gap,” he said. With a shortage of qualified workers, companies must change their attitude and improve their training programs for skilled positions. “Finding skilled workers will be difficult and competition will be stiff,” he said. In a 2011 survey of workforce talent by the Manpower Group, 52 percent of U.S employers reported difficulty filling open positions.

he chairman and chief executive of the country’s biggest bank sidestepped questions from Congress last week about the events that led to more than $2 billion in losses for a London-based trading unit of JPMorgan Chase & Co. Jamie Dimon told the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs that traders belonging to the bank’s Chief Investment Office “did not have the requisite understanding of the risks they took” as they strove to reduce the unit’s synthetic credit portfolio in advance of new Basel capital requirements. Dimon said CIO’s strategy for reducing its synthetic credit portfolio – which was originally intended to protect, or hedge, the bank against a systemic event such as the European debt crisis – was “poorly conceived and vetted.” “The strategy was not carefully analyzed or subjected to rigorous stress testing within CIO and was not reviewed outside CIO,” Dimon said in prepared statements. However, when questioned by senators over the distinction between hedging and engaging in proprietary trading, and whether JPMorgan’s traders crossed from the former to the latter, Dimon did not answer directly, expressing his belief that the CIO trades were engineered to protect the firm but adding that it is not always possible to distinguish between hedging and proprietary trading. During a recent speach at Columbia Law School, Paul A. Volcker, former chairman of the Federal Reserve and of President Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, raised the question of whether JPMorgan was using the CIO as a means of engaging in proprietary trading. “Were they in fact using this unit that they had as a kind of speculative trading vehicle? Were they in fact trading in derivatives in a way that was not a protection against loss but a proprietary guess as to which way the market is going to go?” Volcker said. He left his questions unanswered, but said the distinction between hedging and proprietary trading – a practice by which investment banks conduct trades for their own profit rather than on the behalf of their clients – “is the area outside of the ordinary trading desk that probably presents the biggest challenge.” Volcker gave the keynote speech at a June 7 symposium on competition and consumer protection in the financial services sector. The event, co-sponsored by Columbia Law School and the American Bar Association

Section of Antitrust Law, featured representatives from the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and the New York Federal Reserve Bank, among others. The previous day, Federal Reserve Governor Daniel Tarullo told the Senate Banking Committee that if the Volcker Rule, which prohibits proprietary trading by U.S. banks, had been in place sooner, regulators might have known earlier of JPMorgan’s hedging strategy. “If a firm said, ‘We are doing this as a hedge,’ they would be required to explain to themselves internally as well as to the primary supervisor, what the hedging strategy was ... and how they would make sure it didn’t give rise to new exposures,” Tarullo told the Senate Banking Committee, according to Reuters. While the Volcker Rule has yet to be implemented by Congress, banks have largely already abandoned what they admit is pure proprietary trading, Volcker said. However, he predicted banking regulators would continue to struggle as they seek to protect consumers and guard against the types of risky investments that contributed to the economic downturn. While the phrase “too big to fail” is frequently cited, Volcker said the real distinction should be “too big to manage.” “Maybe this JPMorgan thing is an illustration that these things are really hard to manage,” Volcker said. He added that seeking to effectively regulate some of the country’s biggest banks “can be difficulty squared.” Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) echoed Volcker’s concerns, saying at last week’s hearing on JPMorgan’s trading activities that “executives and regulators simply can’t understand what’s happening” in many of the larger banking institutions. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created by Dodd-Frank as a means of attempting to centralize those government agencies that regulate the financial industry. In creating the CFPB, Congress did not fully accomplish that goal, though, said William E. Kovacic, former chairman of the Federal Trade Commission and one of the speakers at the June 7 symposium. “One of the most important issues today among competition and consumer protection bodies globally is the identification of the right regulatory design,” Kovacic said. “Dodd-Frank doesn’t solve that – it only went partway … It doesn’t go all the way in achieving unification of responsibility and everything that might come from that.”

Sound Shore Medical Center’s Proposed Medical Office Building Renderings—6/2012

Confidence up slightly among Westchester businesses BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

W

estchester County business owners are expecting increased revenues over the next six months to result in more hiring, according to the Westchester Business Confidence Index for the second quarter of 2012.

roll up our sleeves and get working on this,” he said. Construction will be completed in one year. Lampasona and John Spicer, president and CEO of Sound Shore Medical Center, heard a chorus of support for the project at a recent committee meeting of the New Rochelle City Council. Mayor Noam Bramson called it “a very positive proposal.” As recommended by the city’s development commissioner, Michael W. Freimuth, the City Council is expected to create a local development corporation that would issue tax-exempt bonds to finance construction of the hospital’s parking facility. Councilman Albert Tarantino, co-owner of Talner Jewelers in New Rochelle, said the city has been looking for “an economic engine to turn around the downtown. A project like this could start that.” Lampasona said the medical building will

last week proposed a six-month extension of the current bill if the stalemate drags on, which would effectively make transportation funding a non-issue until after the November election. Several New York Democrats and transportation and construction industry advocates have said such a short-term extension is not adequate. “Traditionally, the way to get an economy going and jump-started is to get our roads and bridges built, and they need repairs here and everywhere else,” said Sen. Charles Schumer at a June 4 breakfast hosted by the Business Council of Westchester. “This is close to happening,” Schumer said. “We just need the House leadership to stand up to the small but very ideologically fervent group that says we shouldn’t have a highway bill.” Schumer is on the 47-member conference

The index is scaled from one to 100, with any number above 50 indicating more optimism than pessimism, and it takes into account revenue, income, capital expenditures, hiring plans and other data across a broad swath of industries and businesses.

be a “one-stop health care destination for the community.” In addition to doctors’ offices, about 50,000 square feet of space would be used by the medical center for diagnostic imaging services and as the new location of its inpatient maternity labor and delivery unit and birthing center. Spicer said the office project is important “for the future of the institution and for the medical community in New Rochelle.” No class-A or class-B office space now is available for doctors in the immediate area around the hospital, he said. Spicer and Landmark executives have been encouraged by the initial response from physicians interested in leasing space in the planned campus building. About 80 percent of the available space already is committed, they said. Spicer said the office building optimally could accommodate 30 to 40 medical practices. Sound Shore also expects to start an approximately $6 million renovation and expansion project in its emergency room in the next two months, Spicer said. committee tasked with reconciling separate versions of the surface transportation bill that have been passed by the House and Senate. In March, the Senate passed an 18-month extension of the highway bill by a bipartisan 74-22 majority that would maintain current funding for highway and mass transit projects that are eligible for federal aid. Additionally, the bill prescribes a funding level of at least $1 billion under the Transportation Infrastructure, Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA), which provides for direct loans and loan guarantees to vital national infrastructure projects such as a new Tappan Zee Bridge. Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey of Harrison said it is “absolutely vital” for a long-term agreement, and called on Boehner to bring the Senate measure to a vote should the conference committee fail to come to a consensus. Lowey is co-sponsor of a House version that mirrors the Senate-passed legislation that would support the creation of 113,000 jobs in New York state without adding to the

fourth quarter of 2008. There was a 50 percent jump in the number of companies reporting new openings this past quarter, said Ted Miller, founder and president of DataKey Consulting. “The fact that they are opening up ... is a pretty strong indicator that they’ve got confidence in the near term, otherwise they wouldn’t be hiring,” Miller said. In all, 87 percent of the companies said they either have the same number of openings or

An architect’s rendering of the medical office building planned at Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle.

A likely competitor for outpatient business, Westmed Medical Group, Westchester County’s second largest multispecialty physician group practice, this spring opened a 28,000-square-foot medical office and urgent care center in downtown New Rochelle. Spicer, though, said Westmed doctors could benefit Sound Shore by referring patients to the hospital. “I think at the end of the day, having them here will probably help to some degree,” he said. federal deficit, she said in an email. Thirteen members of New York’s congressional delegation, plus Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, addressed a letter to the members of the conference committee in May requesting that TIFIA funding be preserved should Congress resort to a short-term extension. Republican Rep. Nan Hayworth of Mount Kisco, one of the 14 signers, said she supports the conference committee’s efforts and said she would like to see the Keystone Pipeline – sought by many members of her caucus – accounted for in any long-term bill. New York state transportation officials and industry advocates are concerned about how another short-term extension – which would be the 10th consecutive temporary measure – would affect ongoing and future transportation projects. “It’s not a good situation right now because the state is actually breathing on fumes when it comes to federal funds,” said Ross J. Pepe, president of the Construction Industry Council of Westchester & Hudson

more openings than they did three months ago. The expectation of increased hiring is likely the result of higher revenue expectations across the board, the data suggested. Revenue projections were up, with 79 percent of the companies expecting increased revenue compared with the second quarter of 2011. That number represents a significant jump from just one quarter ago, when 59 percent of respondents said they expected higher quarterly revenue than one year prior. Likewise, profit expectations were higher, with the number of companies expecting higher profits up 14 percent from the first quarter 2012 survey. John Ravitz, executive vice president and COO of the Business Council, said the indication is that businesses are moving from a period of very limited expansion to one of tentative – but accelerating – growth. “We’re seeing a little more breathing room for folks to be able to say, ‘We can now start looking at this project and start bringing on more people,’” he said. Confidence among the county’s business owners appears to have made a complete recovery since the index tumbled from 66.3 to 41.6 in the third quarter of last year on concerns about the national deficit and the European debt crisis. Nearly two-thirds of respondents said they were more confident than they had been one year ago, and 44 percent said they were more confident than they had been just three months ago. “We need to keep that momentum going and keep that confidence level up,” Ravitz said.

Valley Inc. “It’s a serious problem and New York is very vulnerable – not only on the transportation, highway and bridge side but also on the mass transit side of the equation.” “We’re hoping Congress can pull it together, but at the moment it doesn’t appear they will,” Pepe said. While most of the New York State Thruway Authority’s budget is funded through toll revenue, the state Department of Transportation depends largely on federal funding for capital projects. Additionally, plans to finance a new Tappan Zee Bridge, which is estimated to cost $5.2 billion, stand to be affected by whichever route Congress takes. New York state had sought a $2 billion federal TIFIA loan for the bridge’s development, but the state was not invited by the U.S. Department of Transportation to apply for such a loan under the current round of funding. State transportation officials have said they would continue to seek federal assistance during the next round of TIFIA disbursements.

T:11.5”

artners in Shell gas-station businesses in Westchester County are free to oust a managing partner with whom they are locked in lawsuits for control of the business, after a state Supreme Court judge recently lifted a court injunction. The June 7 decision by Justice Bruce E. Tolbert allows investors Leon Silverman and James A. Weil to seek to remove Sammy El Jamal as managing member of their NY Fuel Holdings L.L.C. and related companies. El Jamal, who also owns Wholesale Fuels in Thornwood, in 2011 went to court to prevent his partners from removing him from the gas-station business venture, which began in 2010 with the partners’ $43 million purchase of Shell gas station properties and leases in Westchester and metropolitan New York. Supreme Court Justice William Giacomo in January granted a preliminary injunction that blocked company meetings to remove El Jamal as managing member. El Jamal, though, never posted a $1 million undertaking required by the judge that was due in March. Giacomo this month recused himself from the case. El Jamal’s attorneys argued his removal as manager of the service-station business will put the partners in default on a $33 million bank loan for which only El Jamal is personally liable. Tolbert, though, in his decision, said his opponents have letters from the seller and the lender, M & T Bank, which list conditions for waiving their requirement that El Jamal remain as manager.

Back to school for corporate governance BY JANICE KIRKEL jkirkel@westfairinc.com

S

ummer session is beginning at colleges and universities, and management experts say one of the offerings should be Corporate Governance 101. First in line to sign up, they say, should be Facebook Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. In the matter of Facebook, one of the more significant recent developments involves the Nasdaq Stock Market, which stated June 6 that it would offer $40 million in cash and rebates to clients who may have sufJohn Alan James fered financially in the company’s initial public offering. On the first day of trading in Facebook shares, there were complaints that orders were not confirmed quickly enough, as well as shares being offered at too high a price. Lawsuits have since been filed, charging the Nasdaq with botching the sale of stock and alleging that Morgan Stanley and other underwriters did not share reduced earnings forecasts with small investors before the offering. The New York Stock Exchange objects to the plan, saying it would set a dangerous precedent. Facebook stock was down almost 30 percent from the offering price of $38 at

presstime. Meanwhile, JPMorgan Chase last month admitted that its London office had suffered a trading loss of at least $2 billion because of a hedging strategy that failed. The revelation raised a new set of questions about risk-taking by banks in the wake of the financial crisis that began in 2008. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker said the loss may be a sign that banks are simply too big and complex. The Volcker rule, still under construction by regulators, would prohibit banks from attempting to profit by making trades with their own money if they get federal guarantees. JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon last week appeared before Congress about the trading losses, which were first disclosed by the bank on May 10. He has called them “sloppy” and “stupid.” With regard to Facebook, “These events signal problems with the effectiveness of internal governance, controls and the role of the chief compliance officer at Facebook and their financial adviser, Morgan Stanley,” said John Alan James, executive director of the Center for Global Governance, Reporting and Regulation at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business. “Long ago they should have developed a mission statement, and codes of conduct. A statement of governance, policies, procedures and programs,” James said. “A chief risk officer reporting to the CEO or the CEO and the board. He would have had to

be on top of the chief compliance officer. They didn’t have their internal governance set up adequately.” James said he “can feel a little bit sorry for Morgan Stanley, they’re pros. This won’t be insider trading though, unless the SEC wants to make it so. But giving some investors advantages can involve very heavy fines. It cost Goldman Sachs $550 million,” he said, referring to the firm’s agreement in July 2010 to pay a fine to settle federal claims that it misled investors in a subprime mortgage product as the housing market began to collapse. He said the Facebook episode will probably be investigated for the possibility of criminal charges, but stressed that “criminal charges have to be errors of commission, not omission, and that gets into conspiracy to defraud, to withhold information, and that gets into criminal intent.” Turning to JPMorgan, James said, “One of the investors in JPMorgan went to them in 2011 and said, ‘We don’t think your risk organization is paying enough attention to the chief investment officer. They were forewarned that the chief risk officer was being complacent.” He said the system breaks down “if the compliance officer doesn’t carry weight in the organization. People just tell him to go away. It happens in every organization when staff get involved in line functions. “All of these events clearly indicate that a major rethink in the relationship between

boards of directors, CEOs and oversight of risk management and its relationship to compliance management is long overdue,” James said. Rick Hyland, head of the Global Business Program at Westchester Community College, said the Volcker

“A major rethink in the relationship between boards of directors, CEOs and oversight of risk management and its relationship to compliance management is long overdue.” – John Alan James

rule would certainly help prevent future JPMorgan-type incidents. “You can throw all the legislation you want at the industry, but without a watchdog and guiding principles” it won’t be effective, he said. “But you can’t legislate ethics. And regulatory reform is fine, but if the people making the decisions aren’t held accountable, this will happen.”

Burke rewards achievement in rehabilitation

he Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and the Burke Medical Research Institute honored Lauren Manning, Dr. Ron Cohen and David Carmel with the 2012 Burke Award, in ceremonies held at the Ritz-Carlton of Westchester earlier this month. The Burke Award is the highest honor given by Burke’s board of directors. It recognizes significant contributions to the field of rehabilitation – someLauren Manning one’s exceptional strength in overcoming a physical disability, the development of research or the establishment of facilities to assist disabled individuals.

of her body during the September 11th attacks. “I remember getting out of [my elevator] cab and hearing an incredibly loud whistle,” Manning explained in an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2002. “I plunged through the doors wondering what the noise was… a fireball exploded through the bottom of the elevator shaft, and it caught me from behind and spun me toward the doors. I grabbed the handles…I just Ron Cohen plunged out, knowing I was on fire,” she explained. After her miraculous recovery, Manning’s story was chronicled in the media, as well as in bestselling books written by her and her husband. Her New York Times bestsell-

ing memoir, “Unmeasured Strength,” was published in 2011. Her husband’s book, “Love, Greg and Lauren,” came out in 2002. Glamour magazine, Biography magazine, CNN, the American Occupational Therapy Association, the Blanton Peale Institute and the Anti-Defamation League have also honored her. She is now a motivational speaker. David Carmel is co-founder of Carmel Asset Management, a private investment partnership in New David Carmel York City. He has worked on several medical projects focusing on stem cell and spinal injury research, including the California Stem Cell and Cure Initiative. He is a former member of the New York State Spinal Injury Research Board and

a founding board member of the New York Stem Cell Foundation. In 2002, President George W. Bush named him one of 13 nonpartisan White House Fellows and awarded him the Secretary’s Honor Award, the Treasury Department’s highest honor. Carmel earned a bachelor’s degree with high honors, from Harvard and an MBA from the Stanford University Graduate School of Business. Ron Cohen, M.D., is founder, president and CEO of Acorda Therapeutics Inc., a company that develops therapies for multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries and other neurological conditions. Acorda’s drug Ampyra was the first medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration to improve walking in multiple sclerosis patients. He has been named NeuroInvestment’s CEO of the Year and was inducted into the National Spinal Cord Injury Association’s Spinal Cord Injury Hall of Fame.

You can’t do it all by yourself My Achilles heel is that I have a low tolerance for people who don’t quickly get things that seem obvious to me. I am sure it gets me in trouble with clients, prospects and employees. Any suggestions? Thoughts of the day: Entrepreneurs can be very demanding. Build skills as an executive by learning to deal with people for who they are rather than who they should be. Tap into the potential of the individuals around you. Build a diverse organization, made up of complementary skills and talents. Entrepreneurs can be high-intensity people focused on what they want to achieve. Their “I’ll make it happen” attitude is both a strength and a weakness. Knowing the risks that are on the line, they tend to be impatient and demanding. If someone else doesn’t quickly step up to the plate, the entrepreneur will be tempted to move in and take over just to get work done. Some entrepreneurs find it hard to acknowledge the help they receive from those around them. They concentrate on the challenge, the effort, what still has to be done. There’s little time left to reflect on what’s already been accomplished. They overlook the need to build confidence by reviewing what’s been achieved before charging ahead to master the next set of obstacles. The result of a forceful entrepreneur overriding everyone around them? • Limited communication. • People become trained to hold back and wait for the owner to take the lead. • Lack of action if the owner doesn’t initiate it. Entrepreneurs would do well to remind themselves that they can’t do it all. Sooner or later, if they are going to grow their companies, they need help. And that means they have to step back, gather input and let others learn to take over. It also means building strongly collaborative teams that can take initiative in the owner’s absence. Start with a realistic assessment. How often does the owner cut people off? What are people capable of without the owner’s input? If the owner weren’t around, would people eventually figure out what to do? (The answer to this last question is probably “yes,” but hard for many owners to admit to.) Owners are well-advised to practice lis-

tening instead of doing. Learn to sit still and take notes in a meeting. Give people time to talk, work through issues and share ideas. Suspend judgment about what “should” be. Deal with reality. Either things are, or aren’t, progressing. Either tasks are done, or they’re still pending. Stop wasting time complaining that “They should be doing x, y and z.” Create opportunity for people to communicate, gather ideas, process, formulate and evaluate. Recognize that part of building collaborative teams means encouraging participants to discuss, disagree and then build consensus – or at least agreement to disagree as things move forward. Don’t rush ahead with a half-baked plan only to wish you could undo mistakes later on. Deal with reality by asking the people to address the current situation. Start with a status update. Ask people to go through a list of options, next steps and possible obstacles. Encourage debate. Conclude by asking participants to come together with a set of recommendations on how best to move forward. Recognize that each person has individual strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for growth. Learn how best to tap into individual assets. Just because someone approaches a situation differently doesn’t make it wrong. In fact, looking at situations from multiple points of view can increase objectivity and lead to more robust solutions. There is a great deal of value in diversity as long as it can be channeled into a collaborative approach. Use goals to provide direction on where everyone is headed. Set up key measures against which to benchmark progress. Make discussions about business issues rather than personal concerns. Increase the quality of outcomes by giving people a mission. Remind people to stay focused on overall objectives while allowing them room to chart their own paths. Looking for a good book?

Job-boosting projects wanted BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

T

he state’s Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council seeks proposals for economic development projects in the area that it will then recommend as priorities for state funding this year. The projects will be included in the second round of Gov. Cuomo’s regional initiative to spur job creation and economic growth throughout the state. In tandem with regional planning led by the state’s Empire State Development Corp. and Lieut. Gov. Robert Duffy, state agencies last year adopted a consolidated funding application (CFA) to streamline the selection and awards process in Albany for proposed projects. The 21-member Mid-Hudson council represents Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Rockland, Orange, Sullivan and Ulster counties. Priority projects will be chosen for their potential to stimulate job creation, private sector investment and transformational economic

Earnings jump for Neiman BY JANICE KIRKEL jkirkel@westfairinc.com

T

he economy and the job market may be rocky, but Neiman Marcus enjoyed a strong April quarter, with earnings up 35 percent and comparable store sales – sales at stores open at least a year – up 6.7 percent. The first quarter was good for retailers. Research from Retail Metrics showed earnings up the most in two years, and that the number of retailers who beat earnings estimates was up 5 percent from last year. The 12-year average gain is 3.2 percent. Neiman, though, far outperformed that average and the industry, although store executives have been quoted as saying that the quarter had a strong start and a not-so-strong finish. It is among the world’s most productive retailers, in terms of the amount of sales generated per square foot. Selling luxury goods to consumers with more discretionary income helps, too. But is there something Neiman does that other retailers don’t? “What Neiman has done so well is that they have been able to leverage their in-circle rewards program,” said Britt Beemer, founder of America’s Research Group, a consumer behavior research and strategic consulting firm. “That’s where you get so many points based on dollars. They’re good at leveraging those points, with merchandise, incredible trips. They match what the customer would like to do with what they’re offering.” There is talk that Neiman may go public. Beemer said he hopes that doesn’t happen. “When you’re publicly owned all efforts shift from long-term planning to quarterly reports. It’s a death knell for companies that are long- term thinkers. The shareholder wants results now.”

growth in keeping with the goals of the council’s strategic plan for the seven-county region. That plan includes a focus on growth industries such as biotechnology, high-tech manufacturing and information technology, as well as more established industries such as health care, financial and professional services and the food and beverage sector. Business and organizations wishing to respond to the council’s call for proposals should fill out a priority project worksheet and submit it by 5 p.m. June 29 along with any supporting documentation. The strategic plan and the proj-

ect worksheet can be found at www.nyworks. ny.gov/content/mid-hudson. Applicants must complete a CFA for each project submitted. The deadline for CFA submissions is 4 p.m. July 16. Application materials are available online at https://apps.cio.ny.gov/ apps/cfa/index.cfm. The regional councils this year will vie for shares of $150 million in capital and $70 million in tax credits from the Excelsior Jobs Program to support their projects and advance their regional strategies. An additional $530 million is available from 21 state agency programs for projects

selected in the consolidated funding application process. Empire State Development officials in a press release said the CFA this year is “an even more business-friendly and productive tool for economic development. It will remain the primary portal for businesses to apply for state agency resources, including resources for community development, direct assistance to business, waterfront revitalization, energy and environmental improvements, sustainability, workforce development, agricultural economic development and low-cost financing.”

BY DAVID MENKEN

he explosive growth of social media sites and mobile applications has been accompanied by an equally explosive growth in the volume of personal information disclosed by users, most of whom are not clued in as to how their information is being used. Our computers and smartphones record what we search, where we go, what we buy, who we like, and who our friends like. Take the iPhone app “Girls Around Me,” recently pulled off the market by its Russianbased developer i-Free Innovations after concerns arose about stalking. The app, according to its developer, “scans your surroundings and helps you find out where girls or guys are hanging out…. This foursquare-based tool helps you see where nearby girls are checking in, and shows you what they look like and how to get in touch!” Unknown to them, people who permitted Foursquare to log in their whereabouts were also disclosing their Facebook pages and, as a result, their names, profiles, photos and friends. That seemed like an invasion of privacy to many, especially since there was no disclosure that personally identifiable information was being collected, stored and disseminated. Where privacy is concerned, social media and app developers are increasingly coming under the watchful eye and regulatory control of federal and state governments, as three recent events indicate. MySpace case Recently the social networking service MySpace agreed to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that it misrepresented its protection of users’ personal information. The settlement is quite severe, and is indicative of the U.S. government’s ongoing and increasing efforts to make sure that companies live up to the privacy promises they make to consumers. Under the settlement, MySpace must implement a comprehensive privacy program, submit to regular, independent privacy assessments for 20 years, and refrain from making future privacy misrepresentations. A violation of the settlement could cost it millions in penalties. MySpace has millions of users who create substantial online profiles. The company’s privacy policy promised that it would not share the information provided by users without first giving notice, and promised that the information used to customize ads would not individually identify users to third parties. Yet MySpace did in fact share users’ private information. Privacy bill of rights The MySpace settlement follows a White House announcement of a proposed Privacy

Bill of Rights, released as part of a white paper, “Consumer Data Privacy in a Networked World.” The bill of rights declares that consumers have the right to control the data that is collected about them and proposes to give them more control over how information about them is collected, stored, disclosed and corrected. It has seven principles, all of which are essentially already in place in the European Union. The Obama administration’s intent is to enact a comprehensive personal privacy policy that applies to all consumer transactions, not only those regulated pursuant to the U.S.’s current sector-based approach. In the U.S., we regulate privacy in specific sectors, such as health care, financial services, communications, and the collection of data from children. California takes the lead Not too surprisingly, California leads the rest of the country in protecting privacy. And when companies agree to California’s standards, they generally apply the standards to all of their users, and so consumers in the rest of the country benefit. Such was the case this past February, when California Atty. General Kamala Harris reached a voluntary agreement with Amazon, Apple, Google, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft and Research In Motion - collectors of big data - to strengthen privacy protections for smartphone owners who download mobile applications. The agreement specifically applies to California, but it will benefit users everywhere. It requires developers collecting personal information on California residents to post conspicuous privacy policies that detail what personal information they will collect and how they will use and share it. Consistent rules clear the way Consistent, albeit tougher rules make it easier for developers to build social media sites and apps that comply with new regulatory requirements. “I’m very happy about it,” D.K. Smith, CEO of WPinHouse.com, a Word Press consulting and training site, said of uniform standards for collection and disclosure of personally identifiable information. “It makes it easier for me to get my clients to understand they must have privacy policies and terms and conditions, and what disclosures they have to make.” According to Smith, disclosure, control, and transparency are good for business, and clearly defined rules that everyone must comply with level the playing field.

State aids youth jobs in Yonkers The new squash center at Sleepy Hollow Country Club

The century-old Sleepy Hollow Country Club has opened a $4 million, 10,000-squarefoot squash center on the site of a former squash facility that was demolished after more than seven decades of use. The center includes three new singles courts and one doubles court, a fitness center and a lounge for adjacent paddle tennis courts. Dan Jenson, a former world-ranked squash champion from Australia, has been appointed head squash professional at the club. Competing on the pro squash tour from 1993 to 2007, he at one time was ranked the top player in Australia and fifth in the world.

The Yonkers Workforce Investment Board has been awarded $297,600 in grant funds by the state Labor Department for youth work training and job placement. Part of the New York Youth Works program, the funding will be used to train and hire about 200 unemployed Yonkers residents between the ages of 16 and 24. The New York Youth Works program offers $25 million in tax credits for businesses that hire unemployed and disadvantaged youth within the next year, with the ultimate goal of permanent, unsubsidized employment. The new law also includes $62 million to support training programs. Four Yearsjob Old

Ann Marie Grew, catering and sales director of Overlook Lodge, takes a seat in the facility’s lobby.

A (meeting) room with a view BY MARY SHUSTACK mshustack@westfairinc.com

T

he meeting facilities of Overlook Lodge at Bear Mountain just might prove true the old adage of “location is everything.” The lodge is a full-service hotel that combines rustic charm with modern-day amenities. And it offers a retreat-like setting for corporations and organizations looking to gather in an easily accessible off-site venue. Overlook Lodge is nestled within Bear Mountain State Park, which straddles Orange and Rockland counties in New York and boasts some 5,000 acres. Walking across the circular drive to the entrance, one is immediately captivated – a pair of glass doors provides a peek all the way across the lobby, yielding a dramatic glimpse of the Hudson River beyond. “This is like our little hidden secret up here, for sure,” said Ann Marie Grew, the facility’s catering and sales manager. She settles into that evocative lobby, a warm space filled with classic wing chairs, a stone fireplace and tables fashioned out of rough-hewn wood, to discuss how Overlook Lodge is poised to accommodate business events of all kinds. Grew said though the lodge is best known as a wedding

destination, she is responding to a growing demand from businesses, both within and outside the region. “I’ve been getting a lot more phone calls in the past month or so,” she said. “I feel like people are probably tired of the standard hotel. This is like a totally different getaway.” And that, she said, is perhaps the venue’s greatest strength – the way Overlook Lodge offers companies the chance to combine their business meetings, seminars or conventions with the attractions of one of the Hudson Valley’s most picturesque destinations. “The park is at your disposal,” she adds. “We are all in one. Once you’re here, you’re here.” Set out on a morning hike before a day of seminars. Follow a strategy session with a paddle around Hessian Lake. End a day working on the annual report with a gourmet meal, prepared by award-winning Executive Chef Michael Matarazzo, a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America. “Food is very important to us,” Grew adds with a laugh. Overlook Lodge and the other facilities at Bear Mountain are administered by Guest Services Inc., a hospitality management firm based in Fairfax, Va.

Having been through an update of its lodging and event spaces three years ago, Overlook Lodge now features 24 guest rooms, meeting facilities and meals for those booking business events. “We’re flexible as far as what their needs are,” Grew said, adding groups of 20 to 200 can be accommodated for business functions. “We have so many different options to work with.” The lodge’s Hudson Salon, a ballroom with a wall of windows again offering sweeping views, is part of some 30,000 square feet of available event space throughout the park buildings. As to overnight accommodations, nearby stone cottages offer 24 more rooms, with the historic, newly renovated Bear Mountain Inn offering 15 luxury suites. There are, as expected, the basic services, from Wi-Fi to audio-visual capabilities to a business center with copier and fax machines. In total, Grew said, Overlook Lodge offers a company the chance to provide its employees with a meeting or convention in a setting both practical and memorable. “It’s calming up here, too.” For more details on Overlook Lodge, sign on to visitbearmountain.com or call (845) 786-2731.

MEETINGS AND CONVENTIONS

Thayer Hotel taps into a long tradition of leadership BY MARY SHUSTACK mshustack@westfairinc.com

L

eadership – what it means and what it takes – is never far from thought at the historic Thayer Hotel at West Point. The 151-room hotel, built in 1926 and just unveiling its refurbished executive suites, is a stately brick venue perched over the Hudson River’s western shore. Maintaining and honoring its storied history is as important as keeping it moving vitally forward. That approach not only echoes the best qualities of a leader but makes the hotel the perfect host for the Thayer Leadership Development Group, which offers programs for corporations and individuals from around the world. Karen Kuhla, the director of education for the TLDG, said it’s more than fitting. “So much of what we do is grounded in where we are,” Kuhla said. The Thayer, a separate entity physically residing on the grounds of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, is owned by a group of partners who are all West Point graduates. The ties to the academy, from the class flags that majestically flank a ballroom to the way the rooms are being named in honor of graduates of distinction, are atmospheric reference points. Since its debut in 2010, the leadership group has offered 100 programs to some 90 companies, Kuhla said. “We’ve already had repeat business,” she said. Testimonials from executives at Proctor & Gamble, Mercedes-Benz and 7-Eleven are proudly shared. The group also has been recognized in its

16 June 18, 2012 • WCBJ

field; Leadership Excellence magazine named the TLDG as one of the top 50 large consulting groups on its 2011 Best in Leadership Development list. At the Thayer, groups of anywhere from six to 150 can be accommodated through the customized or open-enrollment programs. “What’s the right number is what the client is trying to accomplish,” Kuhla said, although noting for many programs that 30 to 50 is the “optimum” number. And those attending programs find themselves in the midst of surroundings that combine contemporary amenities – enjoy a post-meeting pause at the dramatic ZuluTime Rooftop Bar & Lounge – with that sense of tradition. “Everything we’re doing, we’re trying to provide a five-star service in a five-star location,” says Rick Minicozzi, the hotel’s managing general partner and a 1986 West Point graduate. The group draws on the lessons and methods that have trained leaders for more than 200 years. Nearly all faculty members are West Point graduates with experience both in the military and civilian sectors. “They are living, breathing examples of our leadership principles,” said Kuhla, who came to the Thayer group from GE, where she led global leadership development programs. “They share the stories.” The group teaches leadership and ethics based on the U.S. Army’s leadership philosophy of “Be, Know, Do” coupled with the academy’s own code, “Duty, Honor, Country.” Whether a company is trying to develop a new strategy or simply reinvigorate its

longtime methods, the TLDG can offer the proper training, Kuhla said. “We don’t have a ‘Leadership 101’ program,” she said. Instead, TLDG staff work closely with representatives from the incoming groups. “Together we create an experience that meets their intent.” The TLDG takes a “4-Pronged Approach,” Kuhla said. This well-defined system includes the offering of applied academic sessions, which are both interactive and grounded in military practice; of experiential learning and team-building sessions that take advantage of the surroundings; of working with senior course advisers that are retired general officers and serve as coaches and mentors; and finally, of providing keynote speakers who are chosen for their ability to be both inspirational and motivational. The work takes place throughout the Thayer, where meeting spaces fill some 15,000 square feet in total. All facilities are state-of-the-art with projection systems and high-speed Internet access. Amenities on site also include executive suites with mahogany sleigh beds, separate living rooms and in several, private conference rooms. Participants also have access to a fitness center and restaurant with a terrace overlooking the Hudson. For those looking for individual training, a number of open-enrollment programs are also offered. For example, “Women Leading From The Frontlines: Core Leadership Principles From The Army and West Point,” designed for mid- and senior-level females, will be presented in August. Kuhla says that all, at first, might not embrace the strong association with the mili-

tary but the TLDG strives to demonstrate how the lessons imparted indeed apply to corporate, nonprofit and educational environments. “Candidly, some people are going to come in (asking) ‘What can I learn from an Army officer?’” she asked. “There are some clients who say, ‘We don’t want all the war stories.’”

The Thayer Leadership Development Group offers leadership training at the historic Thayer Hotel at West Point.

Again, Kuhla said, all the wants of a client are discussed as a program is being developed. But, she added, participants do seem to take away the key, underlying elements that transcend any literal examples. Everyone, she said, can benefit from learning about “leading in times of crisis.” In today’s challenging economy, companies are also coming to realize the importance of staff development as a way to retain top employees, pump up morale and increase productivity, she said. “If you put money into your people, you will grow your business,” she said.

estchester’s hotels still have the “For Rent” sign hanging from the doors of their business meeting rooms. They say bookings of business meetings are running at about the same pace as last year, but events are shorter in duration, booked closer to the start date and contain fewer meals, coffee breaks and attendees. “I recently attended a webinar from one of our vendors,” said Ana Barreto, director of sales and marketing at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Tarrytown. “They said there are more meetings going on, but they are spending less money, less time and having fewer people. We see the same thing.” Barreto also said the booking window – the number of days from the initial request to the day of the meeting – is down. “It used to be 250 days, now it’s 150. For large meetings of 100 people or more, they used to book six months out, now it’s four months out.” She said companies are much more budget-conscious than they used to be. “They’re cutting breaks in the afternoon, coming in at lunch instead of in the morning, then starting the next day.” But most importantly, said Barreto, concessions are driving event planners’ decisions. “The top meeting planners say their decisions are made based on flexibility, especially on dates.” She said at one time, before the recession, the hotel would not book a meeting to start on Wednesday, because it would displace transient business. “But now, since it is so competitive, at slow times of the year, like January and February, we will make a concession.” Another big issue, she said, is attrition, that if a company books a meeting for a certain number of people, it has to supply, or pay for, a minimum number of people. And rates on Wednesday were traditionally higher, she said, but now that is flexible too at slower times of the year. Other offerings include complimentary rooms – one room free per 50 paid, for instance – and free Internet service. She also said being on top of your email is where it’s at right now. At the webinar, she said it was noted that 33 percent of the leads generated went to the hotels that answered within six hours of the request. As for how all this works out financially, “We are ahead on corporate meetings in terms of profit and revenue from it. But we are flat in this hotel because the social market – weddings – is not as strong as last year.” She said revenue from the corporate business from January to May 2012 is up 7 or 8 percent from the same period last year. Dan Conte, general manager of the

Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown, said the year started out a little stronger, then slowed down, mimicking the fortunes of the economy. “The economy was pumped up a little, showing some stability, but as concerns about Europe started picking up bookings slowed down as well,” he said. “Our industry suffers the same as many industries from a lack of confidence. Companies hold back on travel. Year over year in general terms we’re equal to last year. We’re crawling back, but it’s certainly of no significance.” One statistic that is significant is the average hotel room rate in Westchester. According to statistics from Natasha Caputo, the coun-

Dan Conte, president, Westchester Hotel Association, general manager, Westchester Marriott.

ty’s director of tourism and film, the rate is $143.16 so far in 2012. In 2008, it was $167.59. “That’s a $24 drop, a 15 percent decline. Even one or two dollars is big to a hotel. This is huge, it’s unheard of. If a hotel has 30,000 room rentals a year for groups that’s $735,000 in profit lost on group rooms,” Conte said. Business meetings, he said, are 30 to 40 percent of the business to many hotels. At the Tarrytown House Estate and Conference Center, Joe Santore, the general manager and former president of the Westchester Hotel Association, said, “We saw a modest rebound in 2011 and are still seeing improvement this year. And for the second half of the year, we’re seeing about a 6 percent increase in bookings over what we had last year.” He confirmed the meeting trends mentioned by other hotel managers, but said, “We’re also seeing longer days during meetings. Sessions are starting at 7 to 7:30 a.m. and continuing until after dinner. Companies are trying to get as much productivity out of their meeting time as they can since the recession.”


County tourism office pushes business travel BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

W

hat do Walt Disney World and the Platinum Mile along Interstate 287 have in common? Obvious differences aside, both play a vital role in helping to drive their respective region’s tourism industry. What mega-amusement parks are to Orlando, office parks are to Westchester – and since being named director of tourism for Westchester County last July, Natasha Caputo has acted accordingly. Tourism is a $1.5 billion industry in Westchester, with an estimated seven in 10 visitors to the county coming for business rather than pleasure. “That’s new money coming into the economy,” Caputo said. Over the past 12 months, she has sought to build partnerships with organizations ranging from Amtrak to individual hotels to various concert series, with the end goal of drawing more business travelers. “The idea of partnering with the iconic events and institutions and the different areas that make up Westchester is so we can add more for that business traveler who may just be here for a meeting,” Caputo said, “so they can enjoy the great city of White Plains or a hike in one of our trails or the robust and vibrant arts and cultural community that’s here.” Complementing efforts at promoting the county’s various attractions, Westchester County Tourism has established partnerships with Amtrak and the MTA Metro-North Railroad, in addition to working with the Westchester County Airport, as a means of increasing accessibility. In addition to those new partnerships, Caputo said Westchester County Tourism is on the verge of announcing a new campaign and is also in the process of rebuilding its website to boost its marketing capabilities. The results have been mixed so far. Occupancy at county hotels is unchanged compared with this time last year, which Caputo said reflects a national economy that has yet to rebound. “The good news is we didn’t go down,” she said. “This is very reflective of the slowdown in the economy. We’re not immune to what’s going on around us.” She said a number of local hotels and venues are currently undergoing or have recently completed renovations that will make them more competitive as venues for trade shows and larger gatherings. However, regional officials have recent-

ly drawn attention to the lack of a major, modern event space in Westchester. The county’s largest venue, the Westchester County Center, was last renovated in 1988 and fits up to 4,500 people in its 26,000-square-foot main hall. There likely isn’t the demand or the financial resources for a larger facility or convention center in Westchester, Caputo

12-4194 - NYCWE - WCBJ Campaign 2012_7.375x8.5.indd 1

said. “We would welcome more convention space but…we are in the midst of a very volatile time in the economy,” she said. Traditional trade shows and sporting events scheduled at the County Center this year are “on par” with previous years, said Peter Tartaglia, deputy commissioner of the Westchester County Department of

Parks, Recreation and Conservation, which operates the facility. The County Center will be slightly busier than last year due to performances by Disney’s “Phineas and Ferb Live!” and a new concert series that recently featured the Beach Boys and includes future performances by Boston and the Edgar Winter Band, among others, Tartaglia said.

Chelsea Piers sees gold on Connecticut coast BY ALEXANDER SOULE casoule@westfairinc.com

20 June 18, 2012 • WCBJ

n Tuesday evening, June 19, Chelsea Piers Connecticut scheduled a job fair as it continues to sort through its roster for everything from a water polo coach to a payroll coordinator. As for the position of vice president of corporate sponsorships? That post is already functional. In just over a year’s time under codevelopers Clayton Fowler, Steven Wise and Kevin Segalla, one of the largest abandoned industrial sites in Connecticut has been converted into the state’s most comprehensive athletic facility – not to mention the new home of NBC Sports and the NHL Network – with an anticipated July 9 opening date. Chelsea Piers is not the only game in town, so to speak, for companies and organizations wanting to schedule an event at an athletic venue, but none have the buzz and broad options of Chelsea Piers, with soccer legend Kristine Lilly and tennis champion Gigi Fernandez – not to mention its enviable location in the heart of Connecticut’s “gold coast.” Chelsea Piers estimates its facility, programs and stars will result in 1 million visits annually – largely people who are active, affluent, early adopters and influencers. Chelsea Piers’ cha-ching factor is not lost on the local business scene – most recently illustrated by the Sheraton Stamford Hotel’s deal to be the “official hotel” of the new Chelsea Piers Connecticut sports facility. Expect a lot of that kind of thing in the coming months. Chelsea Piers is actively trolling for such corporate sponsorships. At its flagship New York City facility it boasts deals with Coca-Cola, Capital One Bank and Under Armour, among others. In its sponsorship brochure, the company offers sponsors access to its database for email and direct mail purposes; use of Chelsea Piers passes for gift-withpurchase programs; sponsor customer discounts; and perks as simple as interior signs. In addition to hosting year-round tournaments for hockey, lacrosse, swimming, squash, gymnastics, tennis, basketball and volleyball, Chelsea Piers will also offer corporate leagues and opportunities for company events and says it will partner with Sheraton to host off-site company getaways with team-building options. On site, Chelsea Piers will have its


own space for meetings and receptions, both for corporate events as well as social gatherings ranging from birthday parties and bar mitzvahs to bachelor parties.

SECTION : TITLE

Experience leadership and ethics education based on the Army’s leadership framework of “Be, Know, Do” by bringing your team to the inspirational venue of The Historic Thayer Hotel at West Point The Thayer Leader Development Group (TLDG) was founded in 2010 and is based at the Historic Thayer Hotel at West Point. Dr. Karen Kuhla, Executive Director of Education, joined TLGD from GE, where she led global leadership development programs. Dr. Kuhla has assembled a world-class faculty to teach leadership and ethics based on the Army's leadership framework of “Be, Know, Do” to help develop full-time leaders of character. Almost all faculty are West Point graduates, have deep military experience and Ph.Ds, and are well-known authors and experts in their respective disciplines.

“The training and development conducted by TLDG was truly outstanding. All of us came away energized by what we learned and ready to take on the next leadership challenge. The topics taught were impactful, and the instructors were inspiring. I highly recommend this program for anyone looking to invest in the leadership development of their team.” –Joe DePinto, Ceo, 7-Eleven

The combined efforts of Dr. Kuhla and her world-class team have earned TLDG the honor of being ranked as one of the top 50 large leader development consulting companies, along with such organizations as Korn/Ferry, Ken Blanchard, Deloitte/ Leadership, Goldman Sachs Group, IBM, and Accenture. TLDG has hosted over 100 corporate, non-profit, and educational organizations, by offering both customized and open-enrollment programs to over 3,500 leaders and students of leadership, at all levels. Many clients have limited military experience and most have preconceived opinions of what leadership is like in the military. Feedback from after-action reviews and assessments have shown that the training is consistently considered the best they have ever received, and they have a newly gained perspective and respect for our U.S. military and its leadership.

“I cannot tell you enough how much I support TLDG. The lessons, fully grounded in the latest leadership research and combat-tested, are lessons not only relevant but desperately needed in corporate America! Values-based leadership...it is sorely lacking and in my opinion only one institution can credibly deliver that message.” –Stephen Cannon, CEO, Mercedes-Benz, USA

All groups receive a customized experience, based on a unique 4-pronged approach to development. Programs can include any combination of the offerings. You may experience academic excellence in the classroom, around topics one would expect to hear about developing leaders of character, along with experiential learning activities such as crewing on the Hudson River, staff rides of the Battle of Stony Point, and orienteering. Clients are offered the opportunity to have retired General Officers (West Point graduates) serve as full-time mentors/facilitators through the Senior Advisor Program. Also available is a stellar cadre of Keynote Speakers who provide compelling, inspirational addresses, with messaging specific to your objectives. Programs can range from 1 day to 1 week or more, over the course of multiple months. The decision is yours.

“There is nothing more important to P&G’s continued success than the development of strong leaders with character, values, and capabilities required to lead. And your team’s personal commitment to tailoring this event to our unique needs is what made it work...Thank you for a truly outstanding experience.” –Robert McDonald, Chairman & CEO, Procter & Gamble

West Point, referred to as the “Key to the Continent” by General George Washington, is where you will find the Historic Thayer Hotel. The Hotel and its views of the majestic Hudson are inspirational. The Hotel has recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation including world-class conference facilities, and remains one of the most inspirational properties in the United States. In addition to tapping into this venue for a one-of-a-kind leader development experience, many companies also choose to host their corporate meetings there. Bring your team to West Point and share with them the lessons that have helped shape leaders for 210 years. This experience will have positive cascading effects throughout your organization for years to come. Please contact TLDG at your convenience, so you can discuss your objectives and explore how TLDG can be of value to your team.
