Making space for a new work era BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

John Arenas, founder of Serendipity Labs, and Tracey DiBrino, general manager of the company’s first location under construction in Rye.

ith a career that spans more than 20 years in commercial real estate and business workspaces, John Arenas sees a shift in employees’ work habits, especially those of “knowledge workers,” that the corporate office parks of Westchester County are not designed to accommodate. At Serendipity Labs Inc., the third company he has started since 1996, Arenas is launching what he sees as a real estate solution and bridge between home and corporate offices for that new and growing breed of worker. In Rye, Arenas is converting a former Chrysler-Jeep dealership that closed four years ago in the auto industry’s recession-driven crash into a 7,000-square-foot members-only workplace. Due to open in early October in the former Biltmore Motors building at 80 Theodore Fremd Ave., it is the first in a regional network of Serendipity workplaces that Arena plans to open, either as companyowned or franchise operations, from Boston to Washington, D.C. He said he has franchise candidates in five states. In Manhattan, Serendipity Labs soon will close on a lease for its second center within one-half block of Grand Central Terminal.

Bitter pill to swallow

Shareholders say Taro, Sun merger price too low BY JANICE KIRKEL jkirkel@westfairinc.com

M

inority shareholders in Taro Pharmaceutical Industries, an Israeli company with U.S. headquarters in Hawthorne, are rejecting an agreement under which Sun Pharmaceutical Industries of India, which already owns two-thirds of Taro, would have bought the remainder of the shares for $39.50 each and taken the company private. Taro, which makes generic dermatological treatments, and Sun, which is strongest in drugs for heart disease, as well as neurological and psychiatric disorders, have been engaged in a management battle for a number of years. Another deal for Sun’s purchase of most of Taro was held up for several years as Taro’s founders contested the price Sun was paying for their stock. In May 2007, the companies entered into a merger agreement at $7.75 a share and then raised that to $10.25 before Taro rejected the offer. A ruling by the Israeli supreme court in September 2010 gave Sun voting control of Taro, which it maintains to this day. In October 2011, Sun offered $24.50 a share, which was rejected just last month as inadequate. It has now raised the offer to $39.50. At press time, Taro was up 6 cents a share to $39.53. Minority shareholders own one-third of Taro stock. Any Bitter pill, page 6

Customers Bancorp buys CMS Bank BY JANICE KIRKEL jkirkel@westfairinc.com

Customers Bancorp, which currently has a single branch in Rye Brook and is seeking to expand its presence in the New York market, has agreed to buy CMS Bank, a fivebranch bank headquartered in White Plains, for almost $21 million. Customers Bancorp will now have retail banking offices in Eastchester, Greenburgh, Mount Vernon, West Harrison and Mount Kisco, as well as approximately $185 million in loans and $208 million in deposits.

Customers has $2 billion in assets and is considered a “super-community bank.” CMS has almost $250 million in assets. Customers’ CEO is Jay Sidhu, who has been referred to in reports as a “serial dealmaker.” He is the former CEO of Sovereign Bancorp, which he built into the 17th largest bank in the U.S. “We believe that these transactions will allow Customers Bank to better serve small to medium-size businesses, professionals, multifamily projects, commercial real estate projects, individuals and families in Westchester,” he said. The deal is expected to close in the first half of next year. Customers Bancorp, page 6

Startups step into the spotlight

he Business Council of Westchester announced a partnership Aug. 6 with Initiative for a Competitive Inner City in what represents the latest in a series of moves by public and private organizations to stimulate entrepreneurship across the greater New York City region. Advocates and investors say that for the first time since before 2008, there is a strong interest in the Westchester and Fairfield County, Conn., business communities in supporting startups and early stage companies, which have struggled to generate awareness and secure financing in the wake of the financial slowdown. The partnership between the Business Council and Boston-based ICIC extends to Inner City Capital Connections, a training and networking program designed to expose urban businesses to potential investors. Through the Capital Connections program, which was founded in 2005 by ICIC and Bank of America Corp. and is sponsored by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the SJF Institute and Pacific Community Ventures, 275 companies have combined to raise $154 million in equity and $252 million in debt and create 2,790 direct and indirect jobs. The Westchester Coalition for Business Development, launched by the Business Council in late 2010, has said access to capital represents the single biggest impediment to small business and entrepreneurial development in Westchester. Business Council President and CEO Marsha Gordon said her group would act as a bridge between companies seeking financing but in need of guidance and the mentors, resources and investors available through the Capital Connections program. “When you’re talking to finance providers, you have to have your act together. You have one opportunity,” Gordon said. “So we felt that working with small businesses and providing them with links to education and training and those resources was key. And this is a national program that

vent the wheel.” “We have all the assets here, all the components here for a dynamic startup and entrepreneurial environment,” Schwimmer said. “What we really see ourselves as is a catalyst, a provider of services. We really believe that once we establish this, by establishing a nexus around entrepreneurial development … we’re going to breed some really fantastic businesses here.”

Role of government debated Since taking office, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Conn. Gov. Dannel Malloy have aggressively pushed their respective economic development agendas. Cuomo last year orchestrated a regional economic development competition that saw more than $750 million in new or accelerated funds allocated to various job-creating projects across the state, with a second round of funding scheduled for later this year. In January, Malloy committed to deploying $250 million in new funds over five years to promote entrepreneurship, with the state kicking in half the funding and Connecticut Innovations – which generates revenue from its own investments – supplying the remainder. Puro said government involvement should be limited to creating an environment in which businesses can thrive, with private investors then stepping in to fund various companies. “It’ll be interesting to see if the public money can really be put to the right use,” he said. “To me, it depends on the people who are making the choices of which businesses to invest in.” Christopher Bruhl, president and CEO of the Business Council of Fairfield County, said public sector support for entrepreneurship has been “essential.” “While things would have happened, can you accelerate the positive parts of cycles, can you mitigate the negative parts of cycles? I think that’s what’s happening with the public sector’s engagement here,” Bruhl said. “It’s an effort to accelerate something into a pace that will bring more growth, more jobs now rather than it gradually growing over time.”

Back on track Rivertowns project review revived BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

T

My business could always use some extra money T:11.5”

he $150 million Rivertowns Square mixed-use development is back on track in Dobbs Ferry after development partners resolved what one called “internal issues.” Those issues led developers in late July to ask village officials to suspend their staterequired review of the project’s final environmental impact statement. Dobbs Ferry Mayor Hartley Connett announced Aug. 9 that village consultants were resuming their review of the developer’s lengthy document before the village Board of Trustees accepts it as complete and publicly releases it for comments from the community. The residential and retail project would be built on the former Akzo Nobel Chemicals Inc. office campus that adjoins Chauncey Square Shopping Center off Saw Mill River Parkway and Lawrence Street. Los Angeles-based Sundance Cinemas L.L.C. in March announced plans to open an eight-theater, 32,000-square-foot complex at Rivertowns Square, the company’s first East Coast venture. Corey Rabin, a White Plains attorney and managing partner of Dobbs Ferry Capital Partners L.L.C., which two years ago acquired the proposed site from Akzo Nobel for approximately $5.1 million, in a statement said the partners will include several modifications and changes in building uses in the environmental impact statement to “improve the green space and reduce the impact of traffic on local streets.” Traffic congestion has been a major concern of critics of the project. Rabin, who is also a partner in Saber Chauncey, developer of the project’s retail component, said plans still include a hotel and a luxury rental residence. Martin G. Berger, managing principal of Saber Real Estate Advisors in Armonk and a partner in Saber Chauncey, previously said Lincoln Property Co. of Boston would develop a 200-unit residence and that Hilton Hotels and Resorts was expected to acquire a Rivertowns Square parcel as the site of a 123-room extended stay hotel. Rabin said the developers’ goal is to make Rivertowns Square “a top-quality, arts-based destination” that will be “fully integrated within the fabric of the community.” Rabin through a spokesman said the decision to suspend the village’s project review “was to provide time to resolve internal issues.” He did not elaborate.

Being taken for a ride?

Democratic lawmakers seek audit of Playland finances BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

T

hree Democrats on the county Board of Legislators have accused County Executive Rob Astorino of withholding information about the revenues generated by Rye Playland. Flanked by the iconic rides of Kiddyland, legislators Judy Myers of Larchmont, Bill Ryan of White Plains and Catherine Borgia of Ossining said at an Aug. 10 press conference that legislation to authorize an independent audit of the park’s finances would be “forthcoming.” “We are getting a very sad, but a very incomplete story,” Myers said. She said the revenue figures for the 280-acre, countyowned amusement park that have been presented to the Board of Legislators do not include “substantial profit centers” like parking, miniature golf and concessions. Attendance at the park has dropped precipitously, while revenues generated by the park have fallen off. Between July 30, 2011, and July 29, 2012, park attendance was 238,152 and revenues totaled $5.2 million, according to figures provided by the board members.

In contrast, attendance between Aug. 1, 2010, and July 31, 2011, was 259,495 and revenues during the period totaled $5.8 million. Ryan said the park would generate a net profit of $1.6 million in 2012, not including debt service costs. With $3.6 million in debt payments factored in, county taxpayers will be on the hook for $2 million this year, Ryan said. “Playland isn’t making the money that it should be and that failure falls to the county executive,” he said. The trio was also critical of Astorino’s handling of an extensive request for proposals (RFP) process that has sought to determine a suitable – and profitable – future for the debt-ridden park. “We are also taking a vow not to simply hand this beloved park over to private developers,” Myers said. Eleven firms submitted responses to the county’s January 2011 RFP. The proposals, excluding any information deemed to be proprietary, were then vetted by a citizens committee, which issued its recommendations Sept. 22, 2011. In the months since, members of the Astorino administration have been reviewing the proposals and meeting with representa-

tives of the companies behind the various submissions. “To date,” Myers said, “none of these proposals has reached the floor of the Board of Legislators.” She and Ryan were both members of the citizens review committee. Myers said many of the significant financial details of each of the proposals were withheld from the committee members, and demanded that the full proposals be released to the Board of Legislators for review. “We’re ready to take this over,” she said. Republican County Legislator Michael Smith of White Plains, who was present for the press conference, called his colleagues’ statements “political posturing” and “grandstanding.” “The entirety of the books of Westchester County are audited on an annual basis,” Smith said. Astorino spokeswoman Diana Costello said in a statement “it would be foolish to rush into any actions without critically considering all the options.” She rebuffed the legislators’ claims that Astorino was denying the board access to the park’s complete financials. “All of the numbers on Playland are fully

Report: Local governments’ fiscal health at risk

BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

L

ocal governments across the state continue to be in dire financial straits after experiencing an actual decline in revenues of more than $400 million, or 1.5 percent, between 2008 and 2009, a report from the state comptroller concludes. An analysis of data from 4,000 local governments and recent municipal audits conducted by Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office found that “the liquidity of local governments is deteriorating,” according to an Aug. 1 report.

“Difficult choices are ahead, but they start with better longrange planning and an honest conversation about the numbers. By preparing more accurate and realistic budgets, local officials will be better able to deal with these issues without overburdening taxpayers.” — Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli

The report states that nearly 300 local governments had deficits in 2010 or 2011 and more than 100 had inadequate cash on hand to pay their current bills. DiNapoli said the combination of declining revenues and poor financial planning by some local governments could “have a devastating impact on some communities” should any future economic shocks impact the region. “Difficult choices are ahead, but they start with better long-range planning and an honest conversation about the numbers,” DiNapoli said in a statement. “By preparing more accurate and realistic budgets, local officials will be better able to deal with these issues without overburdening taxpayers.” The analysis also revealed various issues in 60 audits released during the 2011-12 fiscal year by the comptroller’s office. Thirty audits included findings that officials adopted inaccurate budgets, resulting in surpluses and retention of excess fund balances and leaving taxpay-

ers on the hook for more than was necessary to fund operations. Thirteen local governments were cited for inadequate recordkeeping that did not provide an accurate portrayal of their true financial conditions and 17 audits identified local governments that, according to the report, had such poor financial systems that they did not know their current financial condition or were unaware of how their actual expenses compared with what they had budgeted for. For the latter category, Rockland County was the chief offender.

The county’s general fund balance deficit increased from $39 million on Dec. 31, 2009, to $52 million just 12 months later. Factors contributing to the higher deficit included operating deficits in various component units of the general fund, the write-off of unpaid real property taxes and penalties owed by a major taxpayer and “questionable budgeting practices,” according to the comptroller’s report. Cities are most likely to be affected by revenue shortfalls, DiNapoli said, but the impact of the recession has filtered down

to all levels of government. County sales tax collections, which dropped 5.9 percent during the recession, took three years to recover to 2008 levels. In Dutchess, Nassau, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Suffolk, Ulster and Westchester counties, property values declined at an average annual rate of 5.3 percent from 2008 to 2011, leading to significantly lower property tax collections. Mortgage recording tax revenues have also dropped significantly, with local governments losing nearly $320 million since 2005, the report states.

Bitter Pill — ­ From page 1

merger must be approved by 75 percent of the shareholders and 50 percent of the minority shareholders. One of those minority shareholders is Mitchell Sacks of Grand Slam Asset Management in Fort Lee, N.J. “The board accepted an offer below market price, at such a low valuation of the cash flow of the business, it’s laughable,” he said. “Two companies that are public that compete with Taro – Glenmark of India and Perrigo of the U.S. – trade at 18 times earnings. So this deal values Taro at 4.8 times earnings, it’s ridiculously low.” Sacks pointed to some recent mergers involving companies similar to Taro. “One involved Bradley Pharmaceuticals, which sold for fifteen times earnings, another was for a company called Fougera. That deal was announced in May, it’s a competitor in some things but also has some lower margin businesses; that’s going for nine times earnings. Then a deal was announced earlier this year in April involving the company Actavis, fourteen times earnings. I haven’t seen a deal anywhere down here, other transactions are much higher.” Sacks said Taro accounts for a third of Sun’s revenues and close to half of its earnings. Taro’s earnings have improved since Sun, which has a reputation for containing costs, took control. Sun has stated publicly that it believes Taro’s improved profitability is unsustainable. Sacks said he believes Sun is trying to talk down the price of the stock so it can buy it for a lower price. Emails to officials at Sun in India and calls to Taro headquarters in Hawthorne were not answered as of press time. Sacks laid out his reasons why he believes Taro’s profitability will continue

in an open letter to Taro shareholders urging them to reject Sun’s offer. “It is our understanding that the formulation and testing of dermatological ointments, creams and gels is much more difficult than the process for pill-based drugs, creating a high barrier to entry. Prescription counts for many of Taro’s products are quite low by prescription drug standards and typically can only economically support a very limited number of competitors; and even if a competitor decided to enter any of Taro’s key markets based on today’s pricing, there is a 32-month average time to receive FDA approval in addition to the time it would take to create the application and conduct testing.” Another minority shareholder, Brian Sheehy of Iszo Capital in New York, agrees. “The generic dermatological industry is attractive for the long term. It’s a little oligopoly in an area that is poised to do well for foreseeable future. It’s a less-competitive niche business, but it has the benefit that generic drugs are the most efficient part of health care delivery,” he said. “And as the health care system realizes it has to save money things will become more genericized.” Sacks points out that in December, Taro changed its bylaws to indemnify the board from lawsuits by shareholders. “This set them up to try to buy with a lowball bid,” Sacks argued. He also contended that all this might put Taro in play. “Perhaps a better course of action would be for Sun to open up the sale process to outside bidders,” Sacks said in his open letter. “We believe that Sun can sell its interest in Taro for significantly more than five times (earnings) to another pharmaceutical manufacturer. Such a process would also allow Taro’s board to fulfill its fiduciary responsibility to obtain the best price for all shareholders.”

Making space — ­ Scheduled for a staggered opening later this year and in January 2013, the midtown office “will actually create a point of connection between Westchester County and the city” for Serendipity members, the Rye resident said. Arenas said 30 percent of the nation’s knowledge workers are no longer tied to the corporate workplace and that percentage is expected to double by 2020. “These knowledge workers are now choosing where they work and how they collaborate, the same way they choose their own mobile devices,” he said. “Real estate really hasn’t caught up with how we work. You’ve got this mismatch of how real estate is and how real estate needs to be. This is a way to meet the demand that’s out there. It’s about collaboration and it’s also about mobility.” Suburban locations such as Serendipity’s in Rye are designed to relieve the isolation and lack of human interaction of working at home, said Arenas, while keeping members within their communities rather than isolated on office campuses such as those along Westchester’s Platinum Mile. The company is looking for “6 by 16” locations where “six days a week, 16 hours a day, there’s something going on.” “It’s not traditional office space,” he said. “It’s designed to be close to home but also accessible to restaurants, shopping. It’s a synthesis” of work and personal life. Though Serendipity Labs offers individual rather than corporate memberships, Arenas said the company could provide managed services for companies that “want to create Serendipity Labs in their own buildings.” Arenas said he does not see the county’s existing office business centers as direct competitors with Serendipity. Five workplace companies operate about 10 office centers in the county, according to Tracey DiBrino. DiBrino in July left one of those compa-

nies, Carr Workplaces in Harrison, to join Serendipity as general manager in Rye. “I think a lot of alternatives (business centers) are about space,” DiBrino said. “We’re about membership.” “Our technology here is really cutting edge and very different from what the business centers offer,” she said. Serendipity members will be served by a proprietary cloud-based technology platform. Knowledge workers today, said Arenas, “are looking for more of a branded experience” in their choice of workplaces. “We’re building more of a branded-hotel brand rather than independent locations.” Joining Serendipity as a strategic partner in that effort is Steelcase Inc., a minority equity investor in the company. Steelcase is providing temporary office space for Serendipity staff in the Rye office of its office furniture dealer, Waldner’s Business Environments. Arenas said Steelcase wants to add hospitality and service components to its office furniture business. “We believe we can help power exceptional experiences in this next generation of workplace-as-a-service solutions,” Steelcase vice president John Malnor said in a statement. “Our involvement with Serendipity Labs is consistent with that goal.” As corporations reduce their headquarters space, Arenas said his new company wants to create for “untethered” knowledge workers “a collaborative environment that’s not their home and not their cars.” This is not the first venture for Arenas as an office workspace provider. In 1996, he established Stratis Business Centers, which grew to be an 11-state network of office centers under his leadership as CEO. Regus plc acquired the company in 2001. Arenas moved to Westchester County to serve as president and general manager of the Regus Americas division. “Some of the same team from Stratis is back on board for this one,” he said. “They want to join another quest. This is the next generation of space.”

is causing many community banks to look for buyers. “CMS, like so many other banks of that size, found that given the regulatory environment it’s hard for them at that size to make money,” he said. “There will be an

extraordinary increase in compliance costs as a result of Dodd-Frank.” In addition to Acacia, Customers has made five acquisitions in three years. “Last year we closed on Berkshire Bank, a community bank in Berks County, Pennsylvania,” Ehst said. “In 2010 we bought two failed banks from the FDIC, USA Bank in Port Chester, we closed it and moved it to Rye, (as the branch that is now in the Rye Ridge Shopping Center), and we bought ISN Bank in Cherry Hill, New Jersey (a one-office bank which conducted most of its deposit business over the Internet).” Ehst said the biggest point of opportunity for Customers right now is to move into markets dominated by major banks, which are not currently served by smaller banks.

In mid-June, Customers Bancorp bought Acacia Savings Bank from Ameritas Mutual Cos. for $65 million. That transaction will add the one branch of Acacia to the Customers Bank franchise and also comes with a regional mortgage banking operation. “We intend to complete our approval process for Acacia, close it and then close the CMS transaction,” Sidhu said in a statement. “After closing the CMS transaction, we hope to gradually continue expanding in the New York market, however, principally through organic growth.” Some reports cited analysts as saying

Sizzling burger chain to open in Pelham Manor

Smashburger, a fast-growing Denverbased restaurant chain, in early September will open its second fast casual eatery in Westchester County at Post Road Plaza in Pelham Manor. A Smashburger franchise operator has leased an approximately 2,300-squarefoot site formerly occupied by Off-Track Betting, said a spokesperson for Levin Management, exclusive leasing and managing agent for the 267,627-square-foot shopping center. The tenant was represented by Peter Levine, broker at the Westport, Conn., office of Charter Realty & Development Corp. Developed and owned by Consumer Capital Partners, a private equity firm, Smashburger has opened 160 restaurants in the U.S., including one in Mamaroneck, since its launch in Denver in 2007. In 2011, it was named America’s Most Promising Company by Forbes magazine. The Smashburger debut at Post Road Plaza will be followed in October by the opening of a Lane Bryant store there. The

women’s fashion apparel retailer recently signed a lease for 5,487 square feet of space in the Fairway Market-anchored shopping center. The Post Road Plaza manager said a 7,500-square-foot retail space formerly occupied by Mandee has been converted into an Annie sez discount store for women’s designer-label apparel and lingerie. Both Mandee and Anne sez are owned by Big M Inc., a family-owned women’s fashions and accessories retailer.

Coleman School, which serves children with multiple disabilities on its White Plains and New York City campuses.

Provident closes on Gotham deal

Provident New York Bancorp, the Montebello-based parent company of Provident Bank, has completed its acquisition of Gotham Bank of New York, a

business-oriented commercial bank in midtown Manhattan. Gotham Bank reported total assets of $424.3 million, total loans of $209.6 million and total deposits of $359.9 million as of July 31. Provident paid $40.5 million in cash for all shares of Gotham’s common stock and an additional $578,000 to settle outstanding stock options. With the acquisition, Provident Bank has $3.6 billion in assets. At the Aug. 10 closing, Gotham Bank was merged into Provident Bank and operates under the Provident Bank name. Jack Kopnisky, president and CEO of Provident Bank in Rockland County, in a press release called the deal “an important milestone for our bank. Gotham Bank built a strong client base and will serve as the cornerstone of our middle market commercial banking strategy in New York City.” David S. Bagatelle, executive vice president of Provident Bank and president of the bank’s New York City metro market, heads the former Gotham Bank operations. Provident Bank was advised in the transaction by Endicott Financial Advisors L.L.C. and was represented by Arnold & Porter L.L.P.

ask andi Making a difference for your employees I’m worried about my employees. Our workforce is loyal and hardworking. Many of them don’t have much put away for retirement. And it seems like living expenses are going up faster than the pay increases we can afford to give out. Am I crazy, or is it getting harder and harder to pay a livable wage? And what can I do about it?

Thoughts of the day: Lots of people have made sacrifices over the past few years to keep their companies afloat. Employees, too, are caught between a rock and a hard place – glad to have a job, but worried about making ends meet. While many of us are living paycheck to paycheck, there are things employers can do to make a difference. In the past few years, as company profits tanked, employee compensation and benefits stalled or declined. In today’s tight economy, demands to rebuild, upgrade and market, along with increased expenses for

transportation, electricity, etc. continue to eat up profits. Planning for employees seems to come last. Meanwhile, employees are stretching to make ends meet. Some households have taken double hits as one spouse gets laid off and the other’s salary flatlines or drops. Real middle-class wages have fallen over the past 30 years when adjusted for inflation. What can a concerned employer do? There are a number of options. It’s time to get creative. Education is a big driver. Companies that continue to do the same old thing are likely to decline. Get smarter about how work is done. Find new niches and ways to compete more profitably. Invest in technology in order to boost profits. Encourage employees to get on the education bandwagon. Start at the bottom of the organization where you’ll have the most impact. Institute training programs that support technology upgrades. Ask local and state agencies for training assistance and funds. Set up workplacetraining sessions. Award certificates and pay increases when people complete milestones.

JOIN THE RUN!

Promote from within as employees build skills. Make sure each employee has an individualized training program that leads to a better economic future. Keep in mind that two-thirds of people in the U.S. don’t complete a college degree, which translates into higher unemployment, lower wages and poorer retirement prospects. Set aside funds for full or partial tuition reimbursement. Break the cycle by driving home the importance of skill building. Budgeting and long-term planning are essential tools for companies as well as individuals. Teach employees about their role in protecting and growing the company’s bottom line. Share information on costs. Ask employees to assist in sourcing quality vendors at reasonable fees. Show people how to build and live within a budget. If you can’t afford to pay the full amount for health care premiums, split the cost with employees. Investigate savings programs that close the gap on out-of-pocket health care. Hold training programs on how to improve physical and mental well-being. Encourage exercise and healthy eating. Offer employees stock in lieu of pay increases. Stock helps everyone focus on what’s good for the company; and distributions are taxed at a lower rate than payroll.

Set up a buying co-op. Ask a farm to visit the company office periodically with produce for sale. Use the company’s purchasing clout to bulk-buy items that employees all need, and then pass the goods along at cost. Negotiate with a local child-care provider for day care and after-school discounts. And as soon as funds are available, put them toward employee retirement plans. Encourage employees at every pay grade to save for the long term. Ask your company’s insurance and investment advisers to come in and educate everyone on why it’s importance to build a nest egg, get debt free and plan for life after work. Looking for a good book?

A contested proposal to build an estimated $7 million sports complex on the grounds of a former nursery was backed by the Greenburgh Town Board when it recently approved a 15-year lease for the developer. Greenburgh voters, though, could halt the forward progress of the Westchester Field House development at the polls this fall. The town board is expected to refer the town’s lease agreement with Tarrytown-based Game On 365 L.L.C. to voters as a ballot item in the Nov. 6 election. The developer plans to build a 94,000-square-foot air dome, 15,000-squarefoot clubhouse and outdoor playing fields on the vacated site of the former Frank’s Nursery on Dobbs Ferry Road, which the town acquired in a foreclosure proceeding. Game On’s annual lease payments would start at $260,000, including about $50,000 in lieu of property taxes, and increase yearly. Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner has esti-

mated the lease deal will bring the town about $5 million in revenue. The sports-bubble project has been opposed by some town residents and by partners in Elm Street Sports Group L.L.C., the developer of House of Sports, an 85,000-square-foot facility due to open by September in Ardsley. An attorney for House of Sports claimed the 15-year lease would result in a net loss of about $737,000 to the town. House of Sports CEO Donald Scherer in May called the town’s transaction with his company’s potential competitor, Game On 365, “a backroom deal” that gave the Westchester Field House developer “an unfair economic advantage” over his company. Feiner after the town board’s unanimous approval of the lease said Game On 365 principals want to immediately start soil testing at the contaminated nursery site to determine the environmental cleanup that would be needed. Feiner said he supported immediate testing ahead of the outcome of the voter referendum in November.

Freshii sets sights on Westchester

F

reshii, a fast casual health food restaurant headquartered in Chicago, will be opening five outlets in Westchester and Fairfield counties, the first by the end of the year. The restaurant, which started in Toronto and now has 50 locations in four countries, signed a deal with EJB Ventures, owned by Jonathan Blob, a former hedge fund portfolio manager who specialized in restaurant investments. Blob said the first eatery would prob-

ably be in Greenwich, Conn., with The Westchester Mall in White Plains a possible second location because the food court there is set to be redone. Other towns in the running are Westport, Fairfield and New Canaan, and Scarsdale, Rye and Rye Brook in Westchester. A Westport outlet would likely be on Post Road and another eatery on Elm Street in New Canaan. In Westchester, the restaurants will probably be in shopping centers, Blob said. In Rye and Rye Brook, he said, he has seen “nothing I’d jump at yet.” Cushman & Wakefield is evaluating sites for the restaurants.

“During my 10 years in the financial industry I met with the management teams and analyzed the vast majority of publicly traded restaurant companies as well as several private concepts,” he said. “It gave me great insight into how the leading management teams run their businesses and interact with their consumers.” Fransmart is Freshii’s franchise development partner. It has launched franchise programs for Five Guys Burgers and Fries and zpizza. “Fast casual sales will continue to outpace the restaurant industry, primarily full-service dining,” Blob said. “Additionally, there (is) a

lack of healthy eating options in Westchester and Fairfield counties, I just haven’t seen a lot of them.” He said Freshii will serve what he called “superfoods,” such as kale- and quinoa-based salads. The menu includes not only salads, but burritos, wraps, rice bowls, yogurts and soups in a “build your own” setting. Freshii refers to the atmosphere in its restaurants as “fast, fun, hip and environmentally sustainable.” Freshii will be opening more outlets in other countries as well – four in Canada and five in Sweden. It already has stores in the United Arab Emirates, Canada and Austria.

Stevens sells Rye Brook marketing company BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

Rye Brook marketing executive Mark Stevens sold his firm, MSCO, to a New Rochelle family, but will remain as CEO for “at least a few years.” The firm, headquartered at 800 Westchester Ave., was acquired by Hilton Soniker, a New York City attorney, and his sons Robert and Jonathan. The financial terms were not disclosed.

Stevens, who founded MSCO 18 years ago, said his decision to sell was based on wanting to bring in new business perspectives and wanting to add liquidity. He retains a share of the company. “It was very important for me to find people I liked and respected. I turned down numerous offers,” Stevens said. “I chose to remain. I’ll be here for at least a few years. I want to be part of the next chapter at MSCO.” Robert Soniker has joined MSCO as

general counsel and senior vice president, and Jonathan Soniker has joined as account executive and senior vice president. Hilton Soniker, of Kamerman & Soniker P.C., will act primarily in an advisory role, Stevens said. Over its history, the firm has served clients including IBM Corp., Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. (MetLife), RE/MAX L.L.C., and restaurateur Wolfgang Puck, among others. Stevens, who made a name for himself with the 2003 publication of the book “Your Marketing Sucks,” said he founded the firm because, in his view, the typical marketing firm was more concerned with winning awards than generating profits for clients. “I started it because I believe that most marketing sucks,” he said. “What I saw was that it was mostly an aesthetic show … I believe the only purpose of a marketing firm, the marketing process, is to generate profitable revenue.” MSCO provides a range of market-

ing and public relations services, including Internet marketing, advertising, market research, social media and web design. Stevens said he and the Soniker family are discussing plans to expand the firm, which currently works primarily for clients based in the tristate region. “You always want to grow,” he said. “We have growth plans that we’re discussing.” While a number of major brands employ MSCO, Stevens said the company’s “sweet spot” is small to mid-size privately held businesses with plans to innovate and grow. “If you do that, you’ll win,” he said. “It’s that complicated and that simple. You need to ask not ‘What do we see’ but ‘What don’t we see?’” Stevens said there is no exact formula for when to sell a company. He said his biggest considerations included finding a partner who could add liquid wealth to the company’s portfolio and who could add a level of expertise that could “take the business up to the next level.”


Alternative energy supporters seek increase in energy credits BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

E

nergy industry advocates called on state officials to increase the limit for a benefit known as net metering that allows homeowners and businesses to earn credits on electric bills when they produce an excess of renewable energy. Through net metering, homeowners and businesses outfitted with solar panels, wind turbines, fuel cells or other renewable energy sources are able to sell any excess electric-

ity they generate back to the state’s major investor-owned utilities, usually in exchange for a credit on their electric bill. The benefit is available on a first-come, first-served basis, with an aggregate limit on net-metered solar, biogas, natural gas, fuel cell and hydroelectric system capacity for any given investor-owned utility set at 1 percent of a utility’s 2005 electric demand. The limit on aggregate wind system capacity is 0.3 percent of 2005 demand. In comparison, New Jersey has a 2.5 percent limit on net metering and California has

a 5 percent limit on net metering for solar systems. Representatives of the New York Solar Energy Industries Association (NYSEIA), The Solar Energy Consortium and Alliance for Clean Energy New York joined U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer Aug. 7 in Kingston, where they urged the state Public Service Commission (PSC) to raise the aggregate limit for net metering as it relates to solargenerated electricity. “For New York to remain competitive with New Jersey, California and other lead-

ing solar producing states, increasing the net metering cap and enabling a longer-term policy is absolutely critical for the future growth and viability of the state’s solar energy industry,” NYSEIA President Ron Kamen said in a statement. In July, Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp. surpassed its 12-megawatt limit on net-metered systems and was forced to issue a brief moratorium on its net metering program, NYSEIA said. The moratorium was lifted Aug. 3 while the utility awaits formal rulemaking by the PSC.

$107M in solar incentives available Under the NY-Sun initiative, property owners looking to install solar systems larger than 50 kilowatts can now submit proposals for a share of $107 million in state incentives available through 2013. The incentives are available through the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s large-scale, customer-sited competitive photovoltaic (PV) program. Through the program, $36.4 million in incentives will be available in 2012 and an additional $70.5 million will be available in 2013. Property owners looking for a share in

the incentive dollars are required to submit a proposal to NYSERDA, with the funding distributed to those who had requested the fewest incentive dollars per kilowatt hour that would be generated by their proposed systems. Funding will be capped at $3 million per project. Bids under the first round of the program are due Nov. 8. The remaining two due dates for this program will be in the first and third quarters of 2013, the governor’s office said in a release. “These investments in photovoltaic systems will allow businesses and municipalities

to put in place green, cost-effective electric generating installations,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement. The $107 million in funding through 2013 represents a significant expansion of NYSERDA’s competitive PV program. Initially, funding had been capped at $150 million for the five-year period starting in 2011. In April, however, the state Public Service Commission approved NYSERDA’s request to increase funding for all customer-sited solar systems to $432 million over four years as part of the NY-Sun initiative. The governor’s office said the NY-Sun

initiative was launched to double the amount of customer-sited solar systems installed annually in New York. On Aug. 8, Cuomo announced $30 million was awarded to 16 developers of largescale solar projects in the downstate area as part of the spring 2012 round of funding. The developers plan to install a combined 34 megawatts of solar by 2013. Companies receiving incentives include Mercury Solar Systems Inc. and the TriState Solar Alliance, both of Port Chester, and Lighthouse Solar, based in Mount Kisco. – Patrick Gallagher

Take accounting. “It is popular and continues to be,” said Donna Grand Pre, dean of admissions at Pace University. “Students see it as stable, and there are a lot of opportunities that come from having that background. When you’re trained to be an accountant, whether an auditor or a private or public accountant, you are analytical, you are trained to have interpersonal and communication skills, you have faceto-face meetings about the control of the organization, and because you’re working with financial statements, you have global insight. The training definitely carries over to other career opportunities.” It’s the part about interpersonal and communication skills that surprises many people. “Accountants have a big image problem,” said Carolyn Christesen, professor and curriculum chair of accounting at Westchester Community College. “The Pathways Commission just released a report on the future of accounting education. They’re trying to get the word out

to high school students to help them understand what accounting is all about. People skills are extremely important. The general public doesn’t understand that accountants deal with clients, deal with people a lot and need very good communication and people skills. They have to speak and write.” She said the number one complaint they hear from companies that are recruiting accounting students is that students’ communication skills need to improve. Christesen said her own daughter went to college to study marketing and “fell in love” with accounting. “Her people skills were key when she interviewed,” she said. Grand Pre said accounting is the most popular major in Pace’s Lubin School of Business, which, she said, should not be too surprising since Pace was founded as an accounting school in 1906. “It’s inherent in the Pace DNA,” she said. “And the one thing that has become very popular are the combined degrees, they offer the ability to do a bachelor’s in public accounting and a master’s in financial management, as well as a BBA/MBA (bachelor’s and master’s in business administration).” The combined degrees, she said, are moneysavers – two degrees for the price of one. “For the BBA/MBA two years ago we had 100 percent employment, and in 2011 it was 95 percent.” Grand Pre said Pace has also increased its online offerings in accounting to meet the needs of students who are

working. In addition, to pave the way for students to be able to move into careers as certified public accountants, she said Pace has adjusted its degrees to meet the 150-credit requirement in New York state to sit for the CPA exam. Pat Healy, chairman of the accounting department at the Lubin School of Business, said there are three programs that allow students to sit for the CPA exam – a bachelor’s degree program, the 5-year BBA/MBA program and the BBA/MS in finance program. “All guarantee that a student will be able to sit for the CPA exam in New York state.” Students also come to Pace to get a master’s in accounting, if they have studied something else as an undergraduate, and then take the CPA exam, Healy said. As for the trends that have developed in the field, “We are seeing a lot of interest in international accounting and are offering more courses in that. We’ve seen 11 percent growth in accounting majors over the past five years. Students see the accounting firms on campus recruiting students and that is attractive to them.” Healy and Christesen say the male-female ratio of students is just about 50-50, but Healy points out that at the partner level in firms, “it’s only 20 percent female.” Christesen said there are usually about 300 to 400 accounting students at WCC, and that “enrollment peaked when the recession peaked. But it’s steady, just like accountants are. There are always jobs, always opportunities. It’s not a fad, it’s not gonna go away.” WCBJ • August 20, 2012

National report strategizes accounting’s future

BY JENNIFER BISSELL jbissell@westfairinc.com

M

embers of the American Accounting Association and the American Institute of CPAs are looking to improve their profession, primarily through educational efforts at the university level. “The Pathways Commission, Charting a National Strategy for the Next Generation of Accountants,” is a compilation of key recommendations by more than 50 accounting professionals and academics from over two years of discussions. Released last month and sponsored by the two national accounting groups, the report’s seven recommendations include: • integrating accounting academics, research and practice, similar to the medical

profession; • solving the shortage of professors by creating multiple career paths; • rewarding high-quality teaching; • adapting curricula to be flexible to changes in technology and practice; • attracting high-quality students; • creating an entity to track information about the field; and • creating a process to easily make future changes to education. Initial implementations will take place over the next three years. “There needs to be a stronger sense of the profession for everyone involved,” said William Ezzell, a co-commissioner and former Deloitte L.L.P. partner. Nearly all information about money is dependent on accounting, which should

hold the profession to a high standard of ethics and obligation to the market, Ezzell said. In light of the many recent financial scandals, accountants could benefit from having a stronger connection to the profession that has a set code of ethics and culture. A key takeaway is that there needs to be a closer link to universities and professionals, Ezzell said. In medical school, students are taught by practicing doctors and medical researchers actually work with, for example, surgeons to improve technical procedures. In accounting, the real world isn’t necessarily brought into the classroom and research isn’t impacting how companies apply accounting. “Communities are changing more today than they have ever have before,” Ezzell said. “The education has to move more quickly to meet those challenges.”

In light of the many recent financial scandals, accountants could benefit from having a stronger connection to the profession that has a set code of ethics and culture.

Many of the recommendations are directed at education, but companies can also give feedback about whether graduates need better critical thinking or communication skills and assist in forging relationships with universities. One idea the commission suggested was taking employees out of firms and swapping them with professors. For a semester, the employee could teach and the professor could work in corporate America to strengthen ties, viewpoints and connectivity. At the University of Connecticut, many of the commission’s recommendations are already followed, said Mohamed Hussein, head of the college’s accounting department. The department has followed the commission’s work from the start and plans to discuss the report further at its fall advisory council meeting. The council includes employees from public accounting firms and companies that review the school’s curricula. The school’s introductory accounting course is one of the most popular in the university and has persuaded many students to change their major to accounting. “I (would) hope accounting education would continue to be adaptive to changes in what society needs from accountants,” Hussein said. “That it provides students with the skills that help them be successful in careers that might span up to five decades.”

O’Connor Davies, an accounting and consulting firm with offices in Harrison and Stamford, one of the top 50 accounting firms in the U.S. and one of the 20 largest in the New York area, has hired Canopy Brand Group, a New York City agency, to develop a marketing campaign. It will include a new website, corporate ads, specialty practice area ads, marketing collateral for specialty practices and recruitment efforts. “This is an important time in our 100plus year history,” said O’Connor managing partner Kevin J. Keane, “We are now focusing on building awareness of the O’Connor Davies name and the unique strengths and practices of the firm. In addition, we are expanding our global reach as an independent member of PKF International’s network of 440 locations in over 125 countries.” PKF is a network of independent accounting firms.

Survey: Parents, kids need to talk about money

When it comes to talking about money with their children, parents are doing a bad job, according to a new survey. Manners, good eating habits, school grades, dangers of drugs and the risks of smoking all beat out financial talk, a national telephone survey conducted for the American Institute of CPAs by Harris Interactive found. The poll found that children are about 10 years old before mom – more likely than dad – talks to them about money. “Based on our findings, parents seem more concerned about the politeness of their children than their financial fitness,” said Ernie Almonte, vice chair of the AICPA’s National CPA Financial Literacy Commission. “Dollars and cents should get the same attention as please and thank you at home. Financial education builds critical skills that help put life goals within reach and strengthen the economy. Parents must make financial lessons a priority in both conversation and action as early as possible.” And while most parents – 67 percent – consider themselves knowledgeable enough

to teach their children about personal finance, Almonte cautioned that they might want to refresh themselves on the basics. “It is not uncommon in my work as a CPA to come across financial misunderstandings that people have held onto for decades.”

SEC wins appeal in Terex CFO case

A federal appeals court reinstated a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission lawsuit against the former CFO of Westport-based

Terex Corp., overturning a previous decision by a district judge in New Haven. Legal experts say the ruling could expand the SEC’s ability to pursue cases involving allegations of accounting fraud against executives who claim they did not play an active role in any deceptive practices. Joseph Apuzzo faced SEC accusations in 2007 that he aided a pair of sale-leaseback transactions with United Rentals Inc., allowing the Greenwich-based company to improperly inflate profits in 2000 and 2001. URI uses Terex construction vehicles and equipment in its fleet.

“To satisfy the ‘substantial assistance’ component of aiding and abetting, the SEC must show that the defendant in some sort associated himself with the venture, that he participated in it as in something that he wished to bring about, and that he sought by his action to make it succeed,” the appeals court wrote in its decision. “Applying that test, we hold that the complaint plausibly alleged that Apuzzo aided and abetted the primary violation.” – Janice Kirkel, Bob Rozycki and Alexander Soule

n recent years, the Internal Revenue Service has engaged in a rigorous series of audits specifically targeting businesses that classify members of their workforce as independent contractors. This initiative, put forth by the Obama administration under the Fair Playing Field of 2010 Act, allows the IRS to investigate the validity of businesses’ application of independent contractor status for their workers and imposes strict financial penalties on companies that have misapplied the status – whether intentionally or unintentionally. Hudson Valley businesses are seeing an increasing number of audits caused by growing staff levels at IRS offices. The problem stems from the fact that there are gray areas when it comes to distinguishing an employee versus a contractor. The financial difference to an employer, however, is tremendous. By designating a worker as an independent contractor as opposed to an employee, a company is no longer obligated to withhold taxes on the worker’s behalf or provide any sort of benefits package. The employer also no longer needs to contribute to Social Security, Medicare or unemployment for that worker. The incentives for an employer to misapply the designation are understandable, but the penalties can be ruinous. Any business that is found to have misapplied the independent contractor status is liable for all taxes that should have been withheld through Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA), as well as Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) taxes on up to $7,000 in earnings for each worker who was incorrectly classified. Special consideration resulting in reduced penalties will be applied in cases where the employer made an honest mistake. However, in cases where the employer knowingly misapplied the designation, the additional penalties can be extreme. The New York State Department of Labor has begun to address the concerns and misinterpretations surrounding contract workers by interpreting the factors that classify independent contractors as opposed to employees. These factors must be addressed precisely, however, because even demonstrated proof that a contractor has an entire portfolio of clients and is a member of the Freelancers Union might not be sufficient to prove employee status. In an effort to create clear designations, New York state agencies have begun to evaluate employee status in much the same way the IRS does. The IRS estimates that more than $7 bil-

lion in tax revenue will be reclaimed through its enforcement methods in just 10 years. Individual states are steadily devising additional financial penalties for misapplication of the independent contractor status. There are also some tangible benefits to this IRS crackdown for both employers and workers. Employers whose competitors have misclassified their employees as independent contractors stand to gain a competitive advantage as competing businesses adjust to the increased cost of operation. In addition, employers who correctly apply the status and have complied by all federal and state regulations have nothing to worry about. Doing things right the first time is a big plus. Workers who are identified as being misclassified stand to gain the benefits to which they are properly entitled. Employers, in response to the crackdown, are less likely to intentionally deprive workers of employee status in order to reap the benefits that are rightly due to their personnel. In order to avoid this legal issue, it is important for businesses to understand the criteria governing employee status and independent contractor status. The IRS issued a 20-point check to determine if an employee warrants independent contractor status. In short, if the employer has the right to control the manner in which a worker executes the tasks of the job, if the employer is in control of all business aspects of the job or if the worker is the subject of employee benefits contracts, the worker should most likely be designated as an employee. Employers who fear that they may have misclassified a worker may be eligible for the IRS’s Voluntary Classification Settlement Program, through which organizations may reclassify workers and self-report in exchange for substantial relief from financial penalties. This must occur prior to contact from the IRS itself, however. In determining eligibility for this program, employers are encouraged to seek advice from financial and legal professionals. Employers that have already been approached by the IRS regarding the classification of their independent contractors are strongly encouraged to seek professional advice, even if it is just to be on the safe side.

Enterprising brothers roll out the rolls

BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

“I

was sitting in the bathroom one day,” says Jordan Silverman, describing how a business – his and his kid brother’s novel business, Star Toilet Paper L.L.C. – begins. We are sitting in the workout room in the basement of his family’s Rye Brook home, where 22-year-old Jordan and 19-year-old Bryan Silverman have set up a low-budget office workstation for their startup enterprise. His seat of inspiration was in Ann Arbor, where Jordan at the time was a sophomore at the University of Michigan. (He recently graduated with a degree in philosophy and a pleasantly virulent “entrepreneurial bug” passed on to his brother.) People are always reading in bathrooms, he mused. Why not give them something to read – guerrilla advertising! retailers’ discount coupons redeemed online! – on those blank scrolls of toilet paper? “I’m the kind of guy where, if I have an idea, I always type it into my phone,” says Jordan. With this idea, he went farther, searching on Google and doing research to find marketing companies that were profiting from like inspiration. “Nobody’s ever done it. We were amazed that nobody had tried this before, and that’s when we thought we were really onto something,” he says. The Silvermans have bootstrapped their startup business, working with little capital and trying to avoid hitting up friends and family for financial investments. “Up to date, we’ve probably invested five to ten thousand,” Jordan says. “That’s just to get us off the ground and running. We’re already at a break-even point.” Their startup effort was boosted by a grant from the state of Michigan through a business incubator in Ann Arbor, a city that nurtures a thriving community of startup entrepreneurs. An executive summary of Jordan’s business plan won a $2,500 second-place prize for new business ideas from the Great Lakes Entrepreneur’s Quest in Michigan. Star Toilet Paper was registered in Michigan as a limited liability company in 2010. Avoiding attorney’s fees, the philosophy major and his younger brother – then a student at Blind Brook High School – first scoured U.S. Patent and Trademark Office databases for filed patents that might dispel their burgeoning business dreams. Finding none, they applied for and obtained a provisional patent for their advertising concept. “We wrote the whole thing ourselves,” says Jordan. “There’s no better way to learn than by experiencing,” Bryan Silverman says. The brothers and co-founders built their own initial website – since replaced with a more professionally produced one – and have designed all toilet-paper ads. After a lengthy hunt, Jordan flushed out a novelty printer in Illinois to produce Star Toilet Paper’s readable scrolls. “It took us about six months to find a printer who can do the bulk at the price we needed,” he says. Manufacturers’ quoted prices ranged from $2 to $10 per roll. “From a cost standpoint long-term, we’ll be able to get down to below a dollar,” he says. The seminal idea was his older brother’s, but their company’s cheeky slogan – “Don’t Rush, Look Before You Flush!” – is Bryan’s creation. “We know it’s a humorous product and we try to embrace

MAKING IT YOUNG

that,” says Jordan. After that first laugh, business owners have begun to embrace their product. While in college, Jordan picked up 30 Ann Arbor advertisers, including a local Ben & Jerry’s shop and a Pita Pit restaurant. Back home this summer, the brothers have signed on 20 diverse advertisers in Westchester County. They include an Allstate insurance agent, athletic training center, trophy shop, flooring company, food mart and pizza parlor. After an initial discount deal, the Silvermans will offer advertisers a price of one-half cent per ad, with 125 of their company’s ads unscrolling on each roll of toilet paper. Companies can target their marketing by venue and by gender for men’s and women’s bathrooms. To reach advertisers, “We do everything from cold calls to emails to door-to-door and networking events,” says Jordan. “The fact that it’s in a bathroom is one strong selling point,” says Bryan. “We’re reaching an audience that’s really captive.” “Most advertisements are seen from two to five seconds. Our advertisements are seen from one to 10 minutes.” In October, the brothers will roll out their product in Westchester in a venue where readers – of books and magazines and, yes, toilet paper – are most welcomed, the Port Chester-Rye Brook Public Library. “We’re both working 10 to 12 hours a day on this,” says Bryan. Since graduating from college, “Jordan is now doing this full time.”

Bryan will return to Duke University this fall for his sophomore year. Thanks to Star Toilet Paper, he is one of five finalists for Entrepreneur magazine’s College Entrepreneur of the Year award. He made the magazine’s finals with the aid of a video produced by Purchase College students hired by the brothers. In September, Jordan will venture into the vast Manhattan advertising market and move his company’s office from the family workout room to co-working space at Sunshine Suites in NoHo. “The plan was law school,” says Jordan. “But once you catch that entrepreneurial bug, it stays with you.” “All you want to do is think up new ideas and work on them,” says his kid brother. “I don’t wake up every day and say, ah, I’ve got to go to work,” says Jordan. “I wake up and say, this is awesome.” Forget law school. Like his company’s advertisers, Jordan Silverman is on a roll. Bryan Silverman seeks support from Westchester County voters in his bid to be named College Entrepreneur of the Year by Entrepreneur Magazine. To vote by phone, text 172381 to the number 22333.
