Religious order shedding trophy properties

F

Downed live wires and flooding whipped up by winds of up to 100 miles per hour off Long Island Sound and the Hudson River reportedly left more than 800 roads closed across the county at the start of the recovery. Westchester residents bore the brunt of property damage in the storm as uprooted trees crashed onto houses and parked cars and gusting winds ripped away roof shingles and house siding. Business districts that historically have sustained the most severe and costly flood damage in

inancially overextended and looking to shed substantial debt, a conservative Roman Catholic religious order that once had ambitious plans in Westchester County is selling its two properties on about 365 acres that could be returned to the tax rolls with a change of ownership. The Legionaries of Christ, a 71-year-old congregation founded in Mexico and numbering about 800 priests worldwide, will vacate its headquarters at the Thornwood Conference Center in the town of Mount Pleasant once a buyer for the approximately 265-acre property off Columbus Avenue is found, said Legionaries director of operations Oscar Marroquin. The former IBM property at 582-590 Columbus Ave. went on the market in late October. In the town of New Castle, the priestly order, shaken in recent years by revelations of its late founder’s history of sexual abuse of boys and fathering of children, has a purchase agreement with a potential residential developer for its nearly 100-acre property at 773 Armonk Road. The religious nonprofit, incorporated as Legion of Christ Inc., in 1994 paid $3.13 million to acquire the Route 128 property outside Mount Kisco from the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity, commonly known as the Unification Church of the late Sun Myung Moon. The red brick mansion on the secluded estate was built for the celebrated songwriter and theatrical producer Billy Rose. Though the Legionaries originally envisioned the former showman’s mansion as a seminary training men for the priesthood, the rezoning proposal was opposed by neighboring residents, Marroquin said. The property, operating as Our Lady of Mount Kisco Retreat Center,

estchester has the Hudson Valley. Fairfield County has its Gold Coast. The two counties are home to a collection of some of the most powerful public and private companies in the world, from General Electric Co. to IBM Corp., PepsiCo Inc. to Xerox Corp., and Bridgewater Associates L.P. to GAMCO Investors Inc. However, with many of the region’s largest employers facing a dearth of qualified and interested recruits, businesses are increasingly opting to relocate all or parts of their operations to more lucrative locations, such as New York City, or to cheaper sites, such as Jersey City or Hoboken. Highlighting the lack of affordable workforce housing in Westchester and Fairfield counties, panelists at an Oct. 25 roundtable discussion called for better coordination between businesses and government entities. “Everybody needs to get more involved because unfortunately, when we look through the list or recommend for friends where to live, where to rent, where to buy – it’s very expensive,” said Kevin McCarthy, of White Plains, a senior associate of CBRE Inc.’s Stamford, Conn. office. “We haven’t had a lot of product that’s come on the market recently that is structured to the professional housing that I can recommend to my friends who want to spend $1,200 to $1,500 a month in rent.” The panel, “Stop the Flight,” was held at

Morton’s The Steakhouse in White Plains, and hosted by the Westchester County Business Journal and sister publication Fairfield County Business Journal. The discussion featured McCarthy, Denise Duca, senior vice president of human resources of Acorda Therapeutics Inc., based in Ardsley; Andi Gray, president of Strategy Leaders Inc., based in Chappaqua; Brendan Meyer, chairman of the Westchester County Association’s Young Professionals Group, based in White Plains; and Arthur Parkos, vice president of the Strategic Technology and Innovation Center at Pitney Bowes Inc., based in Stamford. The event was moderated by Chris Dessi, CEO of Silverback Social, based in Chappaqua. A failure to address the housing issue could jeopardize businesses’ abilities to recruit new employees and could pose a significant risk to the towns and cities that depend on corporate tenants for tax revenues and on locally based employees to drive spending, Gray said. “Go to your towns. Find out what’s happening in your towns and get behind those initiatives,” said Gray, in reference to a county-wide mandate in Westchester to develop workplace, or affordable, housing units in each municipality. “Because as employers, if we don’t do that, we’re not going to have a workforce left.” The key is not just housing, but developing hubs that feature a number of diverse attractions, Meyer said.

“What draws people to a space is more people, not just a good restaurant or a movie theater but a lot of different things going on,” he said. While several towns and cities in both counties, such as Stamford and Harrison, have placed an emphasis on allowing property owners to repurpose unoccupied or underused facilities, there are few true social centerpieces north of New York City, McCarthy said. “From working in Stamford you see what they’ve built down there,” he said. “They’re building something that’s two blocks from the train, they have parks, they have waterways, they have restaurants … and they’re building 4,000 units of housing.” On the contrary, he said, in Westchester “there really is a lack of a centerpiece.” “I know White Plains, everyone likes to congregate there … but there are no parks. You go to the downtown White Plains train station after 6:00 and it’s a ghost town. There’s no retail down there. … We need a centerpiece to hit on all levels, whether its recreation or housing or restaurants.” The primary roadblock is prohibitive zoning practices, Meyer said. White Plains’ West Moreland neighborhood is one of the areas the Young Professionals Group has targeted as an area that could benefit from redevelopment efforts. “We go through there, we have this company Public for Public Spaces that shows us what it could be, and I have a conversation with somebody who’s pretty well plugged in who says, ‘Brendan, that’s great, but it’s not

zoned for that,’” Meyer said. “If we’re not in the conversation (with municipal officials), the only projects that are ever going to come across the boards in the different towns are going to be over-55 communities, because that doesn’t add any kids to the school districts, and luxury.” Focus on employee development Duca said it is critical for employers to be aware of the types of benefits and the general work climate sought by young professionals. She said it’s important to offer employees a compensation structure that they have a stake in. “They want a component where they have some control over their bonuses – setting goals and being able to show their achievements,” Duca said. “What I’ve found also to be important is the environment: what is the culture like, what is the climate like, how much flexibility will I have in this organization, where can I go, is it growing?” Added Parkos, “It’s that notion of being adaptable.” Parkos said Pitney Bowes has been successful in providing young, up-and-coming employees as well as external startups partnering with Pitney Bowes through its entrepreneurial competition with leadership opportunities and exposure to the various technologies pioneered by Pitney Bowes. Through those development and mentoring-oriented programs, “We’re creating an ecosystem of new applications around the things that we do,” Parkos said.

PepsiCo to invest $243 million in Purchase campus BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

P

epsiCo Inc. officials recently announced the global food and beverage giant will extend its 42-year commitment to Westchester County with an approximately $243 million investment in a major renovations project at its corporate headquarters in Purchase. The company’s decision, which will keep 1,100 jobs on its 152-acre Anderson Hill Road campus, came after PepsiCo officials considered relocation options in Connecticut, Texas and North Carolina. Scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2013, the 30-month project will employ about 500 construction workers a year, for a total of 1,250 jobs, said Kathy Alfano, PepsiCo director of economic development. Alfano told Westchester County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) officials that PepsiCo explored many alternatives to staying in Purchase, where it opened its 440,000-square-foot headquarters in 1970. To make the renovations project financially competitive with relocation offers outside New York, the company needed a sales tax exemption on project purchases and a property tax abatement, she said.

The IDA board unanimously approved a straight-lease transaction with the company that allows for the sales tax exemption and a 15-year PILOT agreement that reduces the company’s annual payments in property taxes. County IDA Executive Director Eileen Mildenberger said the specific value of the sales tax exemption has not been determined. The property tax abatement will amount to “several million dollars,” she said. Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the state will award $4 million in Excelsior tax credits to PepsiCo through Empire State Development for retaining jobs in Purchase. “This is about the biggest IDA project we’ve had in 10 years,” said Westchester County Director of Economic Development Laurence Gottlieb. He said county officials worked for about three years with PepsiCo officials to keep the company in Purchase. Town of Harrison officials in 2010 approved PepsiCo’s “Project Renew” master plan to improve its Purchase office space to accommodate future operations while maintaining its parklike natural setting and publicly accessible sculpture garden. PepsiCo officials at the time said there was no timetable for the planned three-phase project, which in the first phase will add a 15,000-square-foot

welcome center on Anderson Hill Road and a 45,000-sqaure-foot glass atrium at the center of PepsiCo’s interconnected office buildings. The project will involve major interior renovations to all seven office buildings on the campus, attorney Frank S. McCullough Jr. told IDA officials. McCullough’s White Plains firm, McCullough, Goldberger & Staudt L.L.P., has long represented PepsiCo in the county. “This is a recommitment to Westchester, Harrison and New York for this term of 15 years,” McCullough said. The project will upgrade the facility’s outdated technology and increase office space capacity by 15 percent. New building infrastructure is expected to reduce energy use by 22 percent, water use by 57 percent and greenhouse gas emissions by 57 percent. The “green” project is expected to meet silver-certification standards of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design program. Employees displaced during construction will work from swing space at PepsiCo’s bottling division headquarters in Somers and at an unannounced location in lower Westchester. One location considered by PepsiCo officials is the former headquarters building of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc.

at 1111 Westchester Ave. in White Plains. In early 2011, PepsiCo’s bottling division, Pepsi Beverages Company, signed a fiveyear lease at One Pepsi Way in Somers that keeps the company’s headquarters and about 900 jobs in Westchester through 2015. The bottler expanded its space there by 50 percent and now fully occupies the nine-story, 540,000-square-foot building. In a message to PepsiCo employees, CEO Indra Nooyi said the $243 million investment will “create a modern headquarters for generations to come” that will foster innovation and help the company keep and attract top talent. The Purchase campus “truly is a special place where we’ve enjoyed incredible successes and formed relationships that will last us a lifetime. It is this deep and personal foundation that allows us to launch an exciting new future here,” she said. Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino in a statement called the company’s decision “a sign of faith in the county’s future, a shot in the arm to the local economy and the extension of a 50-year relationship that’s been a model of civic-corporate partnerships.” IDA officials thanked PepsiCo with an early-morning toast. Cans of Pepsi were raised in place of flutes of champagne.

arialisa Zywotchenko showed her enterprising side in 2009 when she was laid off her job in high-end retail construction at Structure Tone in New York City. “I put up signs around the neighborhood: ‘Professional painter available,’” said the Tuckahoe resident. “It sustained me for about a year.” In 2010, she and her husband, Alexander A. Zywotchenko, decided to partner as well in the small business he had started in Yonkers, Cyrus Contracting Corp. With their separate backgrounds in the industry, “We complemented each other very well,” he said. Two years later, the couple is looking to expand their residential contracting business into commercial markets. With Marialisa as president and majority owner of their company, they have applied to be certified as a minority and women-owned business enterprise (MWBE) by New York state, New York City and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. With general contractors required to award a percentage of subcontractor work to MWBE companies on most commercial projects, “It opens up a whole new world to us,” she said. Their business plan and early-stage growth would not have happened without the training and support of the Women’s Enterprise Development Center in White Plains, the couple agreed. “It’s just been a tremendous resource,” Marialisa said. “WEDC was so integral in us envisioning what we could be instead of us just trucking along.” Zywotchenko last spring was among 40 women who enrolled in WEDC’s 15-week entrepreneurial training program. She was one of three female veterans in the group awarded scholarships for the modestly priced course. The Walmart Foundation this year awarded WEDC a grant to provide a limited

number of full scholarships to female veterans in the entrepreneurial training program. From 2000 to 2006, Zywotchenko served in a New Jersey-based Reserve unit of the Seabees, the U.S. Naval Construction Force. “It was a great sense of camaraderie. I learned the practical side of construction,” she said. That Seabee training complemented her academic studies at New York University, where she completed a one-year construction management program and received a bachelor’s degree in NYU’s real estate management program. Her husband, a graduate of Amherst College, had worked a series of construction jobs in the region as a carpenter – including the restoration of the PATH train station at Ground Zero by Yonkers Contracting Corp. – before starting Cyrus Contracting Corp. in 2009. “My father was a builder, so I was in it my whole life,” he said. But the couple lacked a business plan and their business lacked some elements that WEDC helped supply. “We really needed to hone in and establish the business model,” Alexander said. The entrepreneurship program “takes you from soup to nuts, what you need to do to run a successful business.” “It was just so beneficial in so many ways,” said Marialisa. “We had never done any marketing. We had never done any advertising. …We didn’t have our website in place.” In June, Zywotchenko was awarded a $5,000 LEAP grant from WEDC’s Lanza Enterprise Awards Program to help grow her business. She said it will be used to purchase a second work vehicle for their company. More recently, the enterprising female veteran was chosen by the Westchester County Association to receive its 2012 Apex Award for Young Professionals/Small Business. Before finding WEDC, “I think maybe we were just trucking along doing this residential thing one thing at a time.” Now Cyrus Contracting is running simultaneous projects “and bidding on all kinds of projects,” she said. Her partner said their company is looking to do construction consulting as an owner representative and expand into institutional work at hospitals and universities in the metropolitan area. “It’s going to complement that residential side,” he said. “In this economy and this market, if you’re able to be part of a lot of different projects and a lot of different products, it’s going to help your sustainability much more.” “I told my husband,” said the Apex Award winner, “if we’re going down, we’re going down big now. No guts, no glory.”


Chefs showcase fall’s bounty BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

T

he first fall staging of Hudson Valley Restaurant Week will kick off Nov. 5 and continue through Nov. 18 in Westchester County and five other counties in the region. The 14-day celebration of fine dining and culinary artists features three-course meals priced at $20.95 for lunch and $29.95 for dinner. More than 150 restaurants throughout the region will participate. “There’s been an explosion of great local food in the Hudson Valley,” Janet Crawshaw, publisher of The Valley Table magazine and founder of Hudson Valley Restaurant Week, said in a press release. “From casual neighborhood eateries to eighteenth-century inns, luxury hotel restaurants with sweeping views to stylish riverfront hot spots, the Hudson Valley has it all.” Westchester, with nearly 90 restaurants participating in the fall event, is the first stop on a 100-mile stretch of eateries in the valley. “Restaurant Week is really a celebration of the Hudson Valley” and its farmers, growers, winemakers and chefs,” said Peter Kelly, chef and owner of Xaviars Restaurant Group and co-chair of the restaurant week advisory board. “It’s a collaborative effort.” Now in its sixth year, the event has been successful for restaurants and diners alike, according to restaurateurs. “It’s been wildly successful for the Kittle House and for just about every restaurant that I know that participates,” said Glenn Vogt, managing partner of Crabtree’s Kittle House in Chappaqua. “The opportunity to get new customers through the door, to show off and hope they can come back again, that’s really the benefit for us.” For diners, it’s an opportunity to taste the best the Hudson Valley has to offer. Chef Vincent Barcelona of Harvest on Hudson Restaurant in Hastings said a bounty of squash, pumpkin, apples and pears from farms in the valley will be on his menu and prepared in new ways for Restaurant Week’s fall debut. “It’s what the harvest is all about,” he said. Spearheaded by The Valley Table, Hudson Valley Restaurant Week is sponsored by M&T Bank, WHUD Radio, Millbrook Vineyards, The Gold Standard, Crown Maple, Irving Farm Coffee Co., The Journal News, Dutchess County Tourism, Westchester County Tourism and Hudson Valley Bounty. In Westchester County, diners’ options range from classic Italian, French, steak and seafood houses to Eclectic American, Nuevo Latino, Moroccan, Portuguese or Greek cuisine.

Citrin Cooperman Corner

LLC, Partnership, “S” Corp—Which One Is Right For You? BY NEIL BAYER, CPA AND MICHAEL A. TOLLA, CPA CITRIN COOPERMAN

So you have decided to go into business. You have your business plan and have arranged for the necessary financing. So what Neil Bayer kind of entity are you going to use to operate this business? There are several choices: sole proprietorship, limited liability company (LLC), partnerMichael A. Tolla ship, corporation or “S” corporation. Before the advent of the LLC, almost all new businesses were either corporations or partnerships. The corporation was utilized principally to shield shareholders from creditor liabilities. Unfortunately, tax law makes corporations inflexible for small to mid-size businesses, including the fact that net operating losses are carried forward at the corporation level and cannot be used to offset a shareholder’s personal income. In this structure, corporate profits are taxed at the entity level and are then subject to a second layer of tax when distributed to the shareholders in the form of a dividend. To alleviate some of the potential pitfalls, a tax election (subchapter S) can be made by a corporation to provide that the corporation’s income be taxed to the shareholders rather than the corporation, which generally alleviates the double taxation. One of the few lingering benefits of an S-corporation is that distributions are not subject to FICA or Medicare tax. In an S-corporation shareholders can receive money in two ways: a salary subject to FICA and Medicare, or distributions that are not subject to these employment taxes. Regulations state that of the total amount that shareholders take out of their business, a reasonable amount must be treated as salary, and profits in excess of that reasonable salary can be treated as distributions not subject to FICA or Medicare. This rule has been under constant scrutiny and may eventually be changed. Until then, with Medicare rates rising to 3.8% in 2013, this could still be a significant benefit to a taxpayer. General partnerships offer no liability protection but can offer great flexibility in determining how income is divided between the partners. In addition, they don’t have many of the negative tax rami-

fications of corporations. Unfortunately, all of the net earnings of a partnership are subject to FICA and Medicare tax. Today, the entity of choice is the LLC. It combines the operating flexibility of a partnership with the liability protection of a corporation. A substantial advantage for most owners is that there is generally no tax paid at the entity level; the entity’s income is subject to tax only at the individual level, and losses may be used to offset an owner’s personal income. An LLC has the flexibility to enable owners to allocate income amongst themselves in any logical economic manner, and in certain circumstances the transfer of ownership interests may avoid being taxed. There are various additional forms of limited liability entities, such as a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), Professional Limited Liability Company (PLLC) and Professional Limited Liability Partnership (PLLP). All of these entities have some differences in the extent of the liability protection for members or partners depending upon the particular laws of the state in which they are formed. Generally, licensed professionals remain personally liable for claims arising in connection with their profession. Be careful, the state in which the entity is formed can have an impact on the liability protection and, in some cases, on the rights of minority shareholders and members. An entity can be formed in one state and operate in another state, but it must register in all the states in which it operates as an entity doing business in the state. As you can see, there are choices and differences in liability protection and tax consequences that need to be balanced to provide the proper amount of protection and maximize the tax aspects when determining what type of business entity to form.

A MESSAGE FROM CITRIN COOPERMAN WCBJ • November 5, 2012

ing the commercial real estate brokerage in 2009. Oder’s initial development proposal for the site included a 30-room boutique hotel, a restaurant and 20,000-square-foot spa and gym. But in October, after talks with town officials, potential development partners and financiers, he presented to New Castle officials a revised concept for an 80-unit residential development with 37 three-story villas and 43 condominiums. The hotel, restaurant and spa are not included in the new design. Oder’s attorney, David S. Steinmetz of Zarin & Steinmetz in White Plains, told town officials that portions of the main building would be preserved through adaptive reuse and redevelopment as residential and recreational space and new

wings constructed. The development also would include eight additional buildings. In Thornwood, CBRE Group Inc. is newly marketing the Legionaries’ corporate conference center, a two-building, 410,000-square-foot facility built by IBM Corp. The property, which includes an administrative office building and dormitory and classroom space for seminarians, is being offered for sale as a single site or divided with a 97-acre developed parcel and 167-acre undeveloped tract. Legion of Christ in 1996 acquired the property from IBM for $33.7 million and took out a $25 million mortgage. In 2009, a year after the death of the order’s disgraced founder, the Rev. Marcial Maciel Degollado, the Legion mortgaged both its Mount Pleasant and New Castle properties with Allied Irish Banks p.l.c. for $37.3 million. The Legionaries had proposed to develop their larger Thornwood parcel as the site of Westchester University, a Roman Catholic liberal arts institution. Though the owner did extensive environmental studies required for the project in 2008, that plan has been dropped, said Legionaries spokesman Jim Fair. “It was something on the books that we had hoped to do but the demand hasn’t developed for it,” he said. Fair said the order’s decision to sell its valuable Westchester real estate “is primarily financial. We’re a relatively young religious order. We grew very, very quickly and probably expanded our footprint a little bigger than we needed.” The order also wanted to pay down its debt through the sale of its properties here, he said. Fair said the sale “probably would have happened anyway” without the scandal that led Pope Benedict XVI two years ago

to initiate a Vatican-directed reform of the Legionaries. The scandal did cause “a little bit of a drop in (priestly) vocations” and “exacerbated the financial problems,” he said. William V. Cuddy Jr., executive vice president at CBRE Group’s Stamford, Conn. office, said the Legionaries completed about 75 percent of the environmental review statement required by the state for the abandoned university project. Those studies could be used by academic institutions to develop the site, he said. Cuddy said one of the engineering schools that was a runner-up when New York City officials selected Cornell University to develop an engineering and applied science graduate school on Roosevelt Island might be drawn to the existing Thornwood Conference Center as a metropolitan location. “This could be a very interesting solution for them,” said Cuddy, who is overseeing the property sale with CBRE vice president Budd Wiesenberg. Cuddy said the undeveloped land currently is zoned for single-family homes. “We’re marketing broadly and to a multitude of uses,” he said. CBRE brokers expect the property to attract interest as well for use as a corporate conference center, senior living and assisted care facility, research and development center and suburban home to film studios.

governments in disaster-stricken counties. The governor’s request was made as New York City and Nassau and Suffolk counties responded to “the continued impacts of multi-building fires, tunnel closures, power losses to hospitals and other critical infrastructure, destroyed homes and sheltered populations, all in the midst of historic flooding that has complicated emergency response operations exponentially,” Cuomo said in his letter to the White House. FEMA’S designation of Westchester as a disaster area would make business owners eligible for federal aid that includes: - Unemployment payments up to 26 weeks for self-employed persons who do not qualify for state benefits. - Loans up to $2 million for business property losses not fully compensated by insurance. - Loans up to $2 million for small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives

and most private, nonprofit organizations that have suffered disaster-related cash flow problems and need funds for working capital to recover from the disaster’s adverse economic impact. This loan in combination with a property loss loan cannot exceed a total of $2 million. - Loans up to $500,000 for farmers and aquaculture operators to cover production and property losses, excluding one’s primary residence. As Hurricane Sandy moved slowly up the Atlantic coast toward the metropolitan New York, the Business Council of Westchester, the county’s largest business membership and advocacy group, urged owners to be prepared. John Ravitz, the Business Council’s executive vice president, said businesses were advised to review their continuity of operations plans. “We wanted to ensure that they would be able to move forward if

a natural disaster did occur,” he said. As the former CEO of the American Red Cross in Westchester, Ravitz knows well the importance of being prepared. “You have to keep updating your continuity of operations,” he said. “Make sure it doesn’t sit in a binder. It takes time and commitment to have a plan in place. If there is ever a natural disaster, employees and employers will have a sense of empowerment because they know what to do.” While many businesses in the county remained without power through the week, some benefited from Hurricane Sandy’s savage disruption of business as usual. The AMC movie theatre in Port Chester, a village where most residents were without power, was packed on Halloween night, usually one of the slowest nights of the year at the cinema box office. Restaurants that were able to open were deluged with customers.

previous storm disasters – among them, Mamaroneck, Rye and Hartsdale – were largely spared the damage caused in the past by fast-rising rivers and creeks. As the Business Journal went to press Thursday, county officials in White Plains expected the Federal Emergency Management Agency to add Westchester to the federal disaster area declared for New York state. President Obama’s initial declaration made federal funding available only to storm-battered residents and business owners on Long Island and in the five boroughs of New York City. Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Oct. 31 called on President Obama and New York’s congressional delegation to allow the federal government to fully reimburse the cleanup and restoration costs for state and local

Students descend on job fair BY SAM BARRON sbarron@westfairinc.com

M

ore than 3,000 students came to the Tarrytown Marriot looking for work. The Westchester County Association (WCA) recently hosted Recruit Westchester, where more than 3,000 students and alumni from 14 local colleges and universities met 100 potential employers with more than 1,500 employment opportunities, ranging from Entergy to CVS. The WCA called this its first step in its Blueprint for Westchester, designed to keep young people living and working in the county. “Through our collaboration, we are helping streamline the process for employers and jobseekers to fill over 1,000 jobs and internship opportunities,” said Marissa

Brett, WCA’s Executive Director of Economic Development. Students were bused from institutions like Sarah Lawrence College and Mercy College, all looking for employment, which has become increasingly difficult for graduates in the recession. John Tolomer, president and CEO of Westchester Bank in Yonkers, said they were looking for entry-level teller positions. “We want to recruit people here from Westchester,” Tolomer said. “They understand our customers and their concerns. We have local people reviewing local applications, while other places send it off to Chicago.” Tolomer said that Westchester has a tremendous pool of talent and said that the event was fabulous. “I have met a lot of different people and taken a lot of applications,” Tolomer said.

Westchester residents have put their trust in us to provide the very best home care services, now, Putnam residents can too. Providing hospice and licensed homecare services in Putnam for over 20 years, the VNA of Hudson Valley now provides certified homecare services offering the most comprehensive continuum of homecare programs available to residents of both counties.

Diana Centeno from Iona College speaks to John Tolomer, Westchester Bank.

Verna Cason, a regional recruiter for Entergy, said an event like this is a way to find great talent. Cason said Entergy was looking for a variety of positions, from engineering to marketing to security. “It’s important to keep young people and young talent in Westchester,” Cason said. “They can keep their options open.”

Roger Perez, district manager for CVS in Westchester, said that finding people jobs in Westchester is a way to stimulate the local economy. CVS was looking for store managers and shift supervisors. “We want to reach out to the community and get people working again,” Perez said. Kevin Joyce, executive director of student life and career services at Mercy College, said he is always looking to help match his students with prospective employers. He was impressed with the turnout and the demeanor of the jobseekers. “This is a collaborative event among Westchester colleges,” Joyce said. “Look at how well dressed and articulate our students are. I saw some resumes and was very impressed. There is such a high energy level here. The big winner is Westchester County.” The big spotlight was on the jobseekers, hoping a day like this could help them avoid being a statistic in unemployment reports. Aside from booths with employer after employer, Careerbuilder.com had a room where jobseekers could have their resumes reviewed by a resume expert. John Perri, a retired fire captain for the Scarsdale Fire Department and Mercy graduate, said he was attending the fair with his son to see what was out there. He said the resume review was very helpful. “They gave me very good suggestions on how to format my resume,” Perri said. “I am looking for something to do post-retirement. The job fair is very helpful and productive.” Perri said that resume tips included listing objectives and making sure to use the same font. Tori Gibbs, who is graduating from Sarah Lawrence University in May, said that she wants to remain in the area and that she found the job fair productive. “It helped me narrow what I want to highlight about myself and what I might want to do after I graduate,” Gibbs said. Gibbs said she would like to work in a humanities-centered career, particularly at a nonprofit. She said she was nervous about life after graduation. “This fair showed me that there are positions available,” Gibbs said. “It’s good to see what’s out there. It was a big help.” Jennifer Colon, who is graduating from Manhattanville College, said her first career fair was a good experience. Like other graduating seniors, Colon is nervous about leaving the confines of college. “I know where I stand right now,” Colon said. “But after college, I don’t know where my life is headed. I want to stay in Westchester, but it depends where I get a job.” Both Gibbs and Colon said that their schools were very aggressive in getting the word out about the job fair and making sure there was transportation to and from the event.


in brief AmeriCares assisting in storm relief effort

AmeriCares is on the scene to help people devastated by Tropical Storm Sandy. The Stamford, Conn.- based disaster relief organization announced that it is delivering supplies and bottled water to those impacted by the storm across the tri-state area. AmeriCares is sending 5,000 Johnson & Johnson hygiene kits with soap, shampoo and toothpaste to emergency shelters, and is also working with The Salvation Army and World Cares Center to distribute the kits. Relief workers have visited shelters in Fairfield and Westchester, and expect additional aid in the coming days. “This is just the beginning of what is sure to be a large-scale response with dozens of aid deliveries,” said Garrett Ingoglia, AmeriCares vice president of emergency response in a press release. “Sandy is the worst storm the East Coast has experienced in a generation. We are working to help thousands of families who have been displaced, lost power or have trouble accessing health care due to the storm.”

Westchester Medical Center also did not return funds it received from the Medicaid program despite knowing it had been substantially overpaid as a result of having billed for services for which it lacked proper documentation. As a result of this billing fraud, Westchester Medical Center was paid millions of dollars by the Medicaid program to which it was not entitled. According to published reports, Cathy Ciavarello, the administrator of the outpatient department, brought her concerns to her bosses after a 2008 audit, and her bosses stripped of her administrative responsibilities as administrator of the outpatient department.

Job cuts surged in October

Downsizing is at its highest level in five months. According to a report by global outplacement consultancy Challenger, Gray and Christmas Inc., planned job cuts by employers surged 41 percent in October to 47,724. The surge was blamed on weak quarterly earnings reports. The numbers were up 12 percent from October 2011. September saw only 33,816 job cuts, one of the lowest totals in two years. Layoffs are still 17 percent lower than at this point in last year. “The final three months of the year tend to see heavier downsizing activity as companies make year-end adjustments to meet earnings goals and to prepare for the New Year,” said John Challenger, CEO of Challenger, Gray and Christmas in a press release. “Certainly, the deluge of weak third-quarter earnings reports that resulted from declining sales here and abroad does not bode well for workers as 2013 approaches.”

We have absolutely no tolerance for those who fail to comply with the program,” US Attorney Preet Bhara said. “We will continue to work with our federal and state partners to protect the Medicaid program against waste, fraud and abuse.” From August 2001 through June 2010, the US Attorney’s office claims that Westchester Medical Center repeatedly billed Medicaid for outpatient mental health services without having the core documentation required by the Medicaid regulations in order to bill for those services.

Thoughts of the Day: Let’s start with defining VUCA, where it comes from and then get around to how it relates to management and charting a path for success in business. VUCA is an acronym: Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous. It comes from the U.S. military, the Army War College. The term is relevant to the business world as well. In today’s world, conditions change quickly in unpredictable ways, with myriad impacts that aren’t clear as to how they’ll play out. In other words, VUCA. Learning to deal well with VUCA can result in a paradox: Be prepared by learning to live with not being prepared. In a stable, constant world, it is possible to prepare through static examples: if “a” happens, we do “b;” if “c” happens, we do “d.” When the world becomes volatile, those who can think their way through ambiguity without getting lost in the complexity of information or hung up on uncertainty, win the game. Winners are more likely to be those who can craft a flexible strategy, and constantly adjust tactics – and who recognize that sometimes it pays to be lucky. The survivors must quickly get moving, set their eye on the horizon, and take steps to figure out a new game plan. What does that mean for management? It means educating your workforce. It’s about teaching people how to take action, which is more than memorizing what to do next. And for many business owners, stuck in the command and control of “do it because I told you to,” that means significant, personal behavior changes. Owners must learn to step back and allow their employees to practice dealing with uncertainty. Instead of giving people answers, ask them what they would do, and encourage them to take chances. By experimenting with options and learning to make corrections, individuals build skill and confidence. Over time they learn that

they can handle more complex situations without relying on someone else to tell them what to do. Owners must let go of control and instead look for ways to involve employees in situations that are ambiguous. Teach employees that it is okay not to have all the answers. Help employees to hone their judgment skills, while teaching them to take action even when they’re not clear about how things will come out. Find the leaders in your group of employees. Encourage them to test their skills at building confidence in the people who work with them. Develop a matrix environment, where no one relies on just one person to lead or take action. Build team decision-making and action-taking skills, such that a group can function effectively even when there are multiple opinions for how to proceed. Expose your company to VUCA. Help your people to trust what they learn from experience while also growing their ability to embrace change and try new things. Encourage risk taking – within limits – and help people develop critical thinking skills. Be sure to embed ethics in everything you teach and do. Stress can tend to bring out the worst in all of us. Teach your people about the importance of integrity. Help everyone who works for you to build a strong, positive character to sustain themselves in difficult times. Keep in mind that unstable conditions often result in breakthrough opportunities. Instead of putting your head down trying to solve today’s problems, look up and anticipate what the world will need tomorrow. Involve employees, customers and suppliers in brainstorming sessions about the future. Teach everyone around you to see the world as full of opportunity. Looking for a good book?

Regeneron sales boom with drug launch BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

T

he year-old launch of a drug product used to treat eye disease continued to drive sales and earnings growth at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. in the third quarter this year. The company reported third-quarter revenue of $428 million that far exceeded analysts’ projections, compared with $103 million of revenue in the third quarter of 2011, as the Greenburgh-based drug developer and manufacturer again raised expectations for 2012 sales of its drug Eylea. The company’s net product sales in the third quarter were $249 million, compared with $5 million in the third quarter of 2011. Regeneron’s Eylea, launched last November, accounted for most of that quarterly sales increase of $244 million. The drug has been approved for use in the treatment of age-related macular degeneration, or wet AMD. Third-quarter sales of Eylea were up 26 percent from the second quarter. Leonard S. Schleifer, founding president and CEO of Regeneron, said Eylea is expected to continue to drive growth through 2013

and beyond, following its recent approval in the U.S. for the treatment of macular edema after central retinal vein occlusion and the drug’s expected launch by the end of this year in Japan, Australia and Europe as a treatment for wet AMD. Schleifer said the company is forecasting 2012 U.S. Eylea sales of $790 million to $815 million, surpassing a July estimate of $700 million to $750 million in total sales. For the nine months ending Sept. 30, the company reported $963.9 million in revenue, compared with $322.8 million in revenue for the first nine months of 2011. Sanofi, the French biotech company partnering with Regeneron in the global development and marketing of Zaltrap, made a third-quarter milestone payment of $50 million following the drug’s approval in August for patients in the U.S. with metastatic colorectal cancer. Sanofi reported $8 million in net sales of Zaltrap in the third quarter. Regeneron’s collaborator for Eylea, Bayer Healthcare, made a third-quarter milestone payment of $15 million for the drug’s marketing approval in Japan.

MS drug sales rise, income drops at Acorda BY JOHN GOLDEN jgolden@westfairinc.com

A

corda Therapeutics Inc. in Ardsley reported a 5 percent quarter-toquarter increase in net sales of Ampyra, its leading drug product used to improve walking in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, and a 28 percent increase in net sales of the drug in the third quarter over third-quarter sales in 2011. Net sales of Ampyra from July through September totaled $69.8 million. The company reiterated its 2012 Ampyra net sales guidance of $255 million to $275 million. Acorda’s third-quarter net income, including share-based compensation charges, totaled $9.6 million, a 49 percent decrease from the third quarter of 2011, when the company reported net income of $18.9 million following a $23.3 million milestone payment from its marketing partner, Biogen Idec, for conditional approval in Europe for sales of Fampyra, Acorda’s MS drug brand outside the U.S. Before share-based compensation charges, the company’s third-quarter net income was $15.2 million, a $1 million decrease from the third quarter last year. The company has seen a sharp drop in shipments of Zanaflex, used to relieve spasms and increase muscle tone in MS

patients, since the launch of generic versions of the drug in the first quarter this year. Third-quarter shipments of Zanaflex capsules and tablets totaled $3 million, compared with $14.1 million in the third quarter of 2011. Acorda continues to expect combined Zanaflex revenue and sales royalties for Fampyra to amount to at least $25 million for 2012. Dr. Ronald Cohen, Acorda Therapeutics’ founding president and CEO, in the thirdquarter earnings report said the company is “pleased” with Ampyra’s performance. “Our top priority is to continue to maximize the Ampyra franchise” both in its existing use for MS patients as well as potential uses in the treatment of other diseases. The company is in an early phase of trials for Ampyra’s use in treating cerebral palsy patients. “We also have established an exciting pipeline behind Ampyra, through disciplined investment in both our existing assets and inlicensing of promising neurological agents,” Cohen said. That pipeline includes drugs being studied or clinically tried for use in the treatment of heart failure, spinal cord injury, MS and erectile dysfunction. Acorda Therapeutics in October was added to the S&P SmallCap 600 Index. WCBJ • November 5, 2012

Bayer acquires Schiff for $1.2B

Tarrytown-based Bayer HealthCare L.L.C. announced on Tuesday that it has acquired Schiff Nutrition International for $1.2 billion. Bayer said it expects the deal, made for $34 a share, to close by year’s end. Schiff, based out of Salt Lake City, is known for supplements MegaRed, Move Free and Airborne. “This transaction represents an excellent strategic fit for our health care business,” said Dr. Marijn Dekkers, CEO of parent company Bayer AG, in a press release. “The Schiff business significantly enhances our presence and position in the United States, which accounts for more over-the-counter and nutritional products sales than any other country in the world.” Schiff employs 400 people between its headquarters in Salt Lake City and an office in Emeryville. Dr. Jörg Reinhardt, CEO of Bayer HealthCare, said they will use their expertise to further develop Schiff’s brand name. “We

Sustainability grows as consumers up standards BY PATRICK GALLAGHER pgallagher@westfairinc.com

C

orporations across the U.S. have raced to bolster their sustainability initiatives around environmental, social and governance-related issues to meet market expectations that are higher than ever before, according to a new report. But investors, suppliers and even potential recruits have a message for corporate America: We’re not impressed. Brandlogic’s 2012 Sustainability Leadership Report, published last month, shows a dramatic increase in interest among the 100 companies surveyed in raising corporate sustainability standards and increasing third party monitoring and analysis. However, data collected by the Wilton, Conn.-based branding consultant for the 2012 report indicate that the market perception of the surveyed companies’ efforts actually decreased on average compared to Brandlogic’s 2011 report. James Cerruti, senior partner of Brandlogic and the report’s author, said most of the companies’ actual performances have apparently exceeded their respective abilities to communicate the higher standards to

consumers, investors and business partners and recent graduates. “There is a lot more communication around these issues and companies are taking it much more seriously,” Cerruti said. Given the increased emphasis companies are placing on sustainability and on communicating the changes to the public and to investors, “there was a surprise change yearover-year in that the average perceived performance actually went down,” Cerruti said. Cerruti said that between 12 and 14 percent of consumers base purchasing decisions on perceived corporate sustainability practices. In contrast, 88 percent of institutional investors rate corporate sustainability as being either “extremely important” or “somewhat important” when making investment decisions. “We know that institutional investors are increasingly factoring these issues into their investment decisions,” Cerruti said. “Many look to sustainability and performance in that area as a kind of proxy for overall leadership in companies today. There’s a whole segment that is called the responsible investing community. They alone represent 15 to 20 percent of investment today.”

Cupcakes ... she makes them. Delicious enough that she thought she may be able to make a business of it. There’s just something about gutsy people with exceptional skills. It’s the life blood of the entrepreneur. It makes our mouths water, too. Your small business banking can be as unique as you are. With a truly personal approach - the difference is one-on-one. It’s great to invest in the best cupcake you’ve ever had; even better to make sure you get the chance to taste it. Do Great Things.

Former Xerox CEO talks work-life balance BY JENNIFER BISSELL jbissell@westfairinc.com

H

er career forced her to put her personal life on hold, but former Xerox Corp. CEO Anne Mulcahy told a group of women at an Oct. 24 event that her work ultimately didn’t stop her from having a family. The hotly debated question of whether or not women can “have it all” was at the crux of the first working women’s luncheon held by the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce at the Westport Inn in Connecticut. “No one can have it all,” Mulcahy said. “Make no mistake. You can have a serious career and a life. And that life gets defined in a lot of different ways. I call it work and other.” Mulcahy, who has been a resident of Fairfield County for 30 years, served as CEO of Xerox from 2001 to 2009. Currently she serves as chairwoman of Save the Children, a nonprofit organization serving children around the world in need. “I wanted a career and I wanted a family and I was willing to eliminate just about everything else in life,” Mulcahy said. “Hobbies, personal time, social life; it all

took a hiatus for a couple decades. It was tough but it’s doable.” At the time Mulcahy took over the document management company, it was “unraveling,” she said. Revenue was on the decline, the company was running out of cash on hand for the first time and competition from Asia was charging less for their products than Xerox spent producing their products, Mulcahy said. “I didn’t actually get promoted, I got drafted into the war,” she said, quoting Warren Buffett. By investing in innovation and shifting the company’s focus onto services, Mulcahy was able to leave the company in strong financial health after she stepped down as chairman and a director of the board in 2010. In addition to Save the Children, Mulcahy also currently serves on the board of directors for Johnson & Johnson, Target Corp. and The Washington Post Co. Speaking passionately about female leadership, Mulcahy noted the high number of women leading nonprofits and prestigious academic institutions. But with only a couple dozen women currently CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, Mulcahy said there was further progress to be made. “Women represent half the talent,” she

Anne Mulcahy

said. “Last time I looked, 500 CEOs in the Fortune 500, we shouldn’t be satisfied until there’s 250 (female) CEOs in the Fortune 500.” Recalling a speech she made to females at Princeton University, Mulcahy said she knew there will be an abundance of opportunities for young women in the future. But it will be up to them to figure out how to balance working and their lives. “They’re going to fall off the corporate ladder faster than their male counterparts,” she said. “They’re going to struggle.”

“The most important thing is to define your priorities,” she added. “Companies don’t do that for you … you want to do that for you.” Since retiring, Mulcahy has worked extensively with Save the Children, which she said was the next logical step in her career. “It’s time to give back,” she said. “It’s what that next life should be – taking all that you’ve learned and finding a mission that fits. Spending your time, hopefully, making a difference.”

NOVEMBER SPOTLIGHT

WESTCHESTER ARC When you enter the sunlit doors of our Gleeson-Israel Gateway Center in Hawthorne, the first thing you see is a fanciful explosion of threedimensional color and creativity on display in the lobby. This yarn-bombing display – yarn-wrapped objects and crochet structures, some as tall as trees – showcases the enormous talents of Arc of Westchester consumers who used a variety of colors, textures, materials and their imaginations to create a virtual fantasy forest. The yarn-bombing exhibit is just one example of the range of individual and artistic expression offered to children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities by Arc of Westchester, the largest agency in the county offering lifelong services to individuals and families in its care. Its founding 60 years ago by a small group of determined

18 November 5, 2012 • WCBJ

parents who were frustrated by the limited choices available to their children with mental retardation represented an historic turning point for this community. Since then, Arc of Westchester has become an innovative leader in the field, offering its “differently abled consumers” model programs in early infant evaluation, preschool education, life-skills training, career programs for teens and young adults, residential services and long-term care for older adults. Arc of Westchester operates with a deep commitment that people with developmental disabilities be included in all aspects of our society and be able to fulfill their potential, as citizens and as human beings, realizing their personal dreams, talents and abilities. Community volunteers help these individuals fulfill their potential and realize their dreams. Volunteers help at the residences, at the children’s school, serve on program and fund-raising committees and assist the organization in many other ways. For information on how you can volunteer, contact snatoo@ westchesterarc.org.

NOVEMBER SPOTLIGHT

THE WESTCHESTER CHILDREN’S ASSOCIATION In the early 1900’s, poor children faced challenging circumstances. For example, those whose parents could not care for them were housed with indigent, criminal, and mentally ill adults. Westchester’s first Superintendent of the Poor, V. Everit Macy, asked a group of citizen volunteers to study the problems of children under his care and in 1914, these volunteers established an independent organization that became the Westchester Children’s Association (WCA). Today, WCA still identifies the needs of Westchester’s children and youth, develops innovative responses to those needs, and advocates for policies and programs that benefit children. Volunteers get involved in advocacy, supporting the policies and issues being working on, including early childhood education, child care, children’s health, and preventing child abuse. Volunteers help to get the word out into the communities as well as to elected officials about issues facing Westchester’s youth. Volunteers act as liaisons by introducing WCA to their Rotary’s, places of worship, and schools, inviting WCA to speak to these organizations about the issues and policies that directly affect our youngest citizens. Volunteers also serve as integral members of the WCA issues committees, determining the matters on which we’ll focus. Nearing our 100th anniversary, we have taken a look back at all WCA has done over the past near-century to fulfill our mission with victories such as these: • Introduced remedial reading programs, guidance programs and school psychologists into the County’s public schools, • Established the County’s first shelter for runaway and homeless youth, • Founded the Campaign for Kids, advocating for County investment in preventive youth programs, • Coordinated the joint efforts to enroll thousands of eligible children in free or low-cost health insurance, • Secured the first-ever grants for Westchester’s foster youth who age out of care. We invite you to join us as we continue to advocate on behalf of Westchester’s youth today to create opportunities for them to enjoy a brighter future. For volunteer opportunities or more information visit www.wca4kids.org

Why Give Quote?

“I became involved with the Westchester Children’s Association because I’ve spent my career as an attorney for children, representing those who have been abused or neglected. WCA pushes for better programs for youth and works to find effective, practical solutions to their problems. I see the positive effect of this work on the kids I work with on a daily basis.” Janet Gutterman Attorney, Gutterman & Oppenheim and WCA Board chairperson

Message from Jim Steets As the end of the year draws quickly to a close, it’s time for us all to make sure that we are planning ahead for success. How your organization wraps up one year before facing a new one can make a significant difference on your team’s productivity level when January rolls around. A practice known to many is the use of a SWOT analysis. This includes examining the organization’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. A quick Internet search can point you in the right direction for guidance on how to utilize the SWOT analysis. Be mindful though that a successful analysis depends on openness, that is, honesty, self-criticism and open communication. So before the bustle of the holiday season takes over your best intentions, be sure to set up those important one-on-ones, board committee meetings and face time with key supporters and get the lines of communication running. You’ll be glad you did. — Jim Steets, Vice President, Communications, Entergy

SPECIAL MARKETING REPORT AND ADVERTISING

Brewers cheer Cuomo’s campaign By SAM BARRON sbarron@westfairinc.com

It’s good to have the governor on your side. Brewers across New York have been praising a new tourism campaign Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced last week designed to promote the state’s wines, beers and spirits. Cuomo made his announcement at New York’s first Wine, Beer and Spirits Summit, where producers of alcoholic beverages met with state officials to discuss legislative and regulatory issues facing their industry. New York will provide $1 million for a new advertising campaign promoting the industry, and it will increase funding, leveraged on an industry match, by up to $2 million, providing a possible $5 million marketing campaign. The state also plans to hold events similar to Restaurant Week and promote the industry at the state fair. There are also plans to ensure that only alcoholic beverages produced in New York are sold at New York Racing Association tracks. With more than 450 wineries, breweries, distilleries and cideries, New York ranks third in wine and grape production in the U.S., second in distilleries, and is home to three of the top 20 brewers in the country. “My administration has focused on opening New York’s doors to business and improving our state’s business climate,” Cuomo said in a press release. “New York’s vibrant beer, wine, cider and spirits industry supports thousands of jobs across the state and is a major driver of tourism in many communities.” Westchester is home to many prominent breweries, including Elmsford-based Captain Lawrence Brewing L.L.C. and the Peekskill Brewery L.L.C. Beer aficionados have been anticipating the opening of the Yonkers Brewing Co. sometime next year. “We are very excited that Gov. Cuomo is taking this initiative,” said John Rubbo, co-owner of the Yonkers Brewing Co. “It’s a growing industry and it’s great to see that the governor recognizes that and is taking an active step in the promoting industry. We’re just ecstatic.” Rubbo called the summit a great first step, and hopes New York will host annual beer competitions and tastings like other states do. “It will promote New York and encourage more people to do business in New York,” Rubbo said. Small business breweries have become popular in recent years, and Rubbo said that

people want to try beer that is made in their backyard. “Yonkers Brewing Co. is your hometown beer,” Rubbo said. “People are proud of something from home. The industry is growing, and if New York wants to be a part of that growth, it makes sense to come on board and support the industry.” In starting a small business, Rubbo said it is important to have the support of state and local government. Government across the board has been supportive, he said. “It’s extremely important. We are investing a lot in this business and New York is a great place to invest in. … It’s very important to have Cuomo say that he supports our industry

and wants to see it thrive. We’re very thankful.” Scott Vaccaro, who owns Captain Lawrence, said he thinks the governor’s campaign is going to be a huge boost to New York breweries. “It’s something I’ve never seen before,” Vaccaro said. “The alcohol industry doesn’t always get help. It’s great to hear.” Vaccaro said that small brewers get shut out of events like the New York State Fair and others that could really raise his company’s profile. He also is looking forward to the state modifying regulations. Currently brewers must pay $1,000 for a tasting permit. “The governor said that a lot of these

laws are archaic and were written at a time when there wasn’t a small brewing industry,” Vaccaro said. “It makes a huge difference for small businesses. We appreciate it. We feel fortunate to have a governor that believes in us.” Vaccaro said that his brewery helps support New York farmers by using area hops, wheat and barley. “It has wide ranging implications,” Vaccaro said. “We are growing in tough times. It’s great to have a friend in the governor’s office.” Vaccaro and Rubbo both said that while Cuomo has not tried their beer yet, he is always welcome to come and visit. WCBJ • November 5, 2012

ontent development has become a top priority for Fortune 500 firms and small businesses alike. According to a 2011 study by the Content Marketing Institute, B2B marketers invest approximately 26 percent of their marketing budget on content marketing. Further, the main objectives of content marketing include brand awareness, customer acquisition, lead generation and customer retention/loyalty. In the content management sphere, Return on Engagement (ROE) is the new Return on Investment (ROI). ROE goes beyond hard data to gauge relationships with clients and prospects through brand interaction.While ROI emphasizes how many Twitter followers you have, ROE tracks if these followers are likely brand advocates to recommend your product or service. “Returns” received from community engagement generate broader reach and conversions. A solid content marketing strategy drives web traffic, builds credibility, engages key audiences and translates into increased sales. Consider the following to outline a solid content strategy: Understand your Audience First and foremost, conduct an audit of your

22 November 5, 2012 • WCBJ

It’s all about the content

audience. Who is your existing/desired audience? What are their objectives? What type of content can alleviate their problems? What is their preferred channel of communication? Which types of brand content (photos, blog posts, news links, video, surveys) are enjoying the most engagement? What is the efficacy of select promotions? There are many methods (surveys, ratings, social media) and tools (Survey Monkey, Radian6) to monitor the voice of existing and prospective clients. This will allow the creation of purposeful content to reach your intended audience. Develop Clear, Relevant and Platform Appropriate Content Good is simply not good enough. You need to create remarkable content to capture your audience! Content is more than words – make use of striking visuals to further engage your audience. Before hitting the post button on your blog, take a step back and make sure that your post is relevant and relatable. Take into account the recipient’s mindset: “What’s in it for me?” Whether you develop articles, blog posts, videos, make certain that the content is sharable, engaging and actionable. Humor drives further interaction when used appropriately. And don’t forget the “wow” headline.

Develop a Content Schedule A content marketing strategy’s success depends largely on consistent sharing of information. Be proactive and develop a three-to six-month content schedule. Google Insights for Search is a useful tool to organize your calendar. You can determine when certain topics are trending throughout the year and assess the popularity of a particular subject. Content Delivery Content is delivered through a dizzying array of vehicles, including social media, websites, ebooks, slide shows, blogs, video, infographics and email. The CMI report indicates that article posting (79 percent), social media (74 percent) and blogs (65 percent/ are the most popular tactics for B2B marketers. Videos, blogs and white papers experienced a significant increase in usage from the previous year. Data visualization techniques – infographics –also represent a popular trend. According to Hubspot, companies that blog at least 20 times per month generate five times more site traffic than those that blog only a few times per month and B2B companies that blog generate 67 percent more leads per month than non bloggers. Fifty-one percent of all time spent on the web is content consumption, according to AOL Neilson.

Twitter is the most popular social media channel with content marketers. In June, Twitter hit 400 million tweets per day and is anticipated to have 250 million active users by the end of this year. Send out regular email updates every four to six weeks to retain clients and remind them of your expertise. Be sure to include a call to action in the form of a downloadable white paper). Content Optimization Master SEO basics such as incorporating key words or phrases into all content including tweets, posts, blogs, landing pages and building links to important pages. Pay close attention to the metrics, Google Analytics) that measure page traffic, bounces and conversion. Google rewards high-quality, informative and original content in organic search results. To be found in Google and other search engines, there is no shortcut to content creation. In fact, duplicating content is penalized. Although content distribution continues to change at a frenzied pace, creating great content is and will always be a worthwhile investment.

hile it’s rare for a business to not have a website or at least a couple of social media accounts, for companies that do, the problem is whether customers are able to find them. There are 644 million active websites on the Internet, according to recent estimates. If your website isn’t applying search engine optimization (SEO) best practices, it’s likely no one will find it through a simple Google search, said Joel Burger, president of J3 Web Marketing, based in Fairfield, Conn. Addressing a room of small business owners at a SCORE workshop held in Wilton, Conn., Burger said there are many things people can do to improve their Google search rankings. “The Internet is a level playing field,” Burger said. “It is within your control to affect your rankings.” SCORE is a nonprofit consulting service for small businesses owners, established by Congress in 1964. The national organization has 389 chapters, including a Fairfield County chapter based in Norwalk. Google ranks what web pages appear in its search results based on an algorithm that primarily determines relevance and credibility. It’s important to rank as high as possible – in other words, on the first page of search engine results – as most people don’t go past the second page of results. Burger said. Instead, they’ll choose new keywords or search terms. On the front end – what is visible to anyone surfing the web, such as a website’s home page – business owners can tailor their website’s content to display specific keywords users might search. Burger suggests businesses choose two to three keywords to focus on and they can put those keywords inside headers, text, in boldface and elsewhere on their website and social media sites. For example, Burger said, on his website he uses the phrase “integrated web marketing” in hopes that users search for those terms. Google has a free service, Google AdWords, that offers keyword suggestions for site owners as well, Burger said. On the back end, which refers to the portion of a website that contains coding and dictates what web users are able to see when they access the particular site, Burger suggests installing SEO software that asks the website owner for additional keywords, tags and descriptions that can then be used by search engines. Burger said he uses the free website provider WordPress to manage his site, and an SEO software plug-in developed by Yoast.

SOS? Not with SEO Besides keywords, Google also ranks its search results based on a site’s credibility. Google rewards websites that regularly have new content on it and when other websites, especially popular ones, link to the website as an authority on any given subject. If no one is linking to your site, Burger suggested commenting on blogs and participating in forums where you can post your site’s URL, or directly contacting websites to make a

case for why they should link to your site. “The more visibility you have online the more people will be driven to your website,” Burger said. “Once they’re on your site, you have a prospective customer.” Though small business owner Cathy Paine gets most of her customers through inperson presentations, she said she still thinks it’s important to have a strong web presence. “If there is anyone looking for me, I

need them to do be able to find me,” she said. Paine’s company, Norwalk, Conn.based Integrated Movement Learning, helps clients improve their flexibility, posture and coordination through a specific study of movement. “But what I want is the right traffic,” Paine said. “It’s not about the numbers, it’s about attracting the right people who want me and need me.”

corda Therapeutics Inc., the Ardsley-based biotechnology company, recently received two silver awards at the annual Medical Marketing & Media (MM&M) Awards ceremony. The company was honored for its AMPYRA.com consumer site in the category of best branded website and for its AMPYRA healthcare professional campaign in the best professional print campaign category. AMPYRA is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a treatment to improve walking in patients with multiple sclerosis. The MM&M Awards recognize exceptional creativity and marketing effectiveness among all companies in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Only two awards are given in each of 24 categories. More than 100 independent industry judges scored this year’s rounds of competition. Lauren Sabella, Acorda’s executive vice president of commercial development, in a statement said the company’s goal with its consumer website and professional campaign “is to increase awareness of important information about MS and AMPYRA, helping to facilitate educated dialogue between physicians and consumers about their health care decisions.” Acorda this year also was awarded the PM360 Trailblazer Award for best health care professional advertising campaign and picked up gold and silver awards from the International Academy of the Visual Arts for its AMPYRA.com site. The company also received two Telly Awards this year for online video production and editing.
