omen formed new businesses five times faster than businesses in general in the past nine years, but still face significant obstacles. “There are still barriers to women achieving success,” said Anne Janiak, executive director of the Women’s Enterprise Development Center in White Plains. While conditions have improved, “stereotypes still exist.” Women now own 11.2 million businesses nationally, according to a new study by American Express OPEN, a payment card issuer for small businesses. They employ 9 million people and generate more than $1.6 trillion in revenue. The number of women-owned

firms increased by 45 percent from 2007 to 2016, compared with 9 percent among all businesses. Women own 39,870 businesses in Westchester County and 34,959 in Fairfield County. They represented about one-third of all private-sector businesses in the two counties, slightly less than the national average. Much of the progress can be explained by 30 years of cultural and demographic changes, according to Julie Weeks, a market research and public policy adviser who wrote the report. “Years ago, fewer than half of our mothers worked,” she said. “Now pretty much everybody’s mother works outside the home.” As more women participate in the labor force, they develop contacts, gain managerial experience » WOMEN, page 8

Touro opening dental school in Westchester BY JOHN GOLDEN

he first acceptance letters are being sent to prospective students in the first graduating class at Touro College of Dental Medicine at New York Medical College, which will open this summer in a former IBM office building

in Hawthorne next to the medical college’s Grasslands campus in Valhalla. The 100,000-square-foot facility, half of which will house a 132chair community dental clinic staffed by faculty and students, will be the fifth school for health care professionals operated in New York by Touro College and University

System, a fast-expanding, nonprofit Jewish institution headquartered in Manhattan. Touro in 2011 acquired New York Medical College from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York in a $60 million deal. With its first class of an anticipated 110 students entering this summer, the dental school at 19 Skyline Drive will be the fifth operating in New York state and the first to open in the state since 1968, when the Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine joined the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine as the state’s only publicly funded schools training dentists. In the metropolitan area, it will vie for students with Stony

Brook and two private institutions, Columbia University College of Dental Medicine and New York University College of Dentistry, as well as with the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in Newark. New York’s statewide population has increased by 4.5 million people in the nearly half a century since the last dentistry school opened, according to Touro officials. In deciding to start a new dental school, Touro officials “saw synergy with our overall health sciences system,” said Dr. Alan Kadish, president of Touro College and University System, in a phone interview with the Business Journal.

“We saw a nationwide need for dentists. We saw demand by undergraduates” for dentistry programs. And Touro officials saw a need for more dental care in rural areas and underserved communities in this region, Kadish said. “With dental health care as the foothold of good overall health care, it is important that this area of professional health care education continues to grow,” Kadish said in Touro’s announcement of the opening. “Fortunately, the dental school’s location on the New York Medical College campus will create invaluable opportunities for interdisciplinary training.” » TOURO, page 8

WILMINGTON TRUST RENOWNED INSIGHT

“Shouldn’t you decide what will become of your business?”

Bruce F. Hoffmeister Senior Wealth Strategist Bruce has more than two decades of experience in estate and financial planning for closely held business owners and their families. He is part of a seasoned team of professionals who exemplify Wilmington Trust’s 113-year heritage of successfully advising business owners. Our goal is to help you create a plan for each stage of your business and your life, offering key insights at critical times of transition.

Heads of successful family businesses are often reluctant to share control and involve other family members in the management process. But do you know what would happen to your business if you suddenly became incapacitated or worse, passed away? Who would step in to manage day-to-day operations? And even if you have a successor in mind, is that successor ready and capable of stepping up and running the business? Starting early. Ideally, succession planning should begin the day you take over a business. Of course, that isn’t always realistic given the amount of work running a business takes, but succession planning needs to be a top priority. Most importantly, you will need to decide if you want to keep the business in the family or eventually sell it. Looking down the road. To make the important decisions, you have to think about how you envision your retirement. You’ll need to determine if you want to be actively involved in the business in some capacity for the remainder of your life. You should ask yourself if you want to be chairman of the board and collect the net income. And

you should know whether the business will generate sufficient cash flow to support you and your family in retirement.

ColumbiaDoctors unveils new Tarrytown location BY ALEESIA FORNI

A

aforni@westfairinc.com

fter a four-month soft opening, ColumbiaDoctors unveiled its new $10 million medical center in Tarrytown on April 20, continuing the trend of major metropolitan hospitals and health systems expanding their reach in Westchester. ColumbiaDoctors is the faculty practice of Columbia University Medical Center, one of the campuses of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.

Christopher S. Ahmad

The 20,000-square-foot facility at 155 White Plains Road is in a previously vacant 70,000-square-foot building that once served as offices for typewriter manufacturer Olivetti. It’s about a mile from the Tappan Zee Bridge and features 24 exam rooms and three consult rooms, with specialties including cardiology, neurology and psychiatry. The space also hosts imaging facilities to administer CT scans, MRIs, X-ray and ultrasound exams. A radiology center is expected to open early this summer. “What’s unusual about radiology is that we will have more services under one roof than any other facility in the area, aside from a hospital,” said Kristin O’Meara, faculty liaison and patient access manager for ColumbiaDoctors. The space is the largest of the 13 ColumbiaDoctors locations in Westchester, including its facilities in Briarcliff Manor, Buchanan, Croton-on-Hudson, Eastchester, Hartsdale, Hawthorne, Ossining, Pleasantville, Scarsdale, Sleepy Hollow, Somers and White Plains. Practice administrator Nancy Objay said during a recent tour of the facility that compared with a hospital, the Tarrytown medical center is a “more pleasurable experience for a patient.” The location allows patients access to “the physicians that you’d normally have to trek

down to the city (to see), you’re getting them right here, close to home,” she said, adding that free parking is also a perk. Most of the doctors will take appointments one to two days per week in the Tarrytown location. Along with conducting their own research, physicians of ColumbiaDoctors also serve as teachers. “They’re the people who write the book, which is another key advantage over some of our competitors … they’re teaching students how to do this and they’re writing and doing the research that informs treatments,” O’Meara said. One such doctor is Christopher S. Ahmad, a professor of orthopedic surgery and an attending physician at NewYork-Presbyterian/ Columbia University Medical Center. He also serves as the head team physician for the New York Yankees. “The need existed and we responded to that need,” Ahmad said of the Tarrytown location. “People wanted to have the New York City specialists.” “Now you can get the same doctors right here in Westchester,” he said. Anna-Christina Bevelaqua, an assistant professor in rehabilitation medicine at Columbia, agreed that the new offices will make patients’ lives easier. “I think it’s really convenient for a lot of our patients who before were traveling all the way to the city, into Washington Heights to the main hospital,” she said. “This just makes it so much more convenient for them.” “I’m seeing an orthopedic surgeon as a patient today who lives in Westchester and prefers to see me here than at the medical center,” Ahmad said. “And he works at the medical center.” The Tarrytown office is primarily a clinical location, as opposed to a major teaching site or surgery facility. Many of its doctors perform surgeries at New York-Presbyterian/ Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, a facility that is set to open the doors of a $60 million surgery and oncology pavilion later this year. “It’s really about the community setting,” O’Meara said, “for older patients especially.” New York-Presbyterian also plans to lease space at the Tarrytown location for general practitioner offices. There are also plans to expand the medical center’s offerings to include internal medicine and pediatric subspecialty practices, as well as installing a physical therapy gym at the location in the “foreseeable future,” O’Meara said.

he mall era is supposed to be over. Rather than build massive enclosed shopping centers amid a sea of parking lots, developers across the region have looked increasingly toward walkable mixed-use districts, with homes, businesses and shopping on top of one another. To some extent, the numbers bear this out. From 2000 to 2009, an average of about 18.2 million square feet of mall space came online nationally, according to CoStar Group. Last year, it was down to 3.4 million. In the midst of those trends, Trumbull in recent years has completed more than $35 million in renovations to the Westfield Trumbull mall, with successful businesses such as the Apple store and Cheesecake Factory continuing to count on the shopping center’s success. Even more dramatically, Norwalk could soon see construction of a 700,000-plussquare-foot enclosed shopping center on one of its most highly visible tracts. While malls elsewhere may be dying, Norwalk is staking much of its future growth on one. And despite troubles elsewhere in the sector, there are indications this project, with its choice anchor stores, favorable demographics and desirable location, is on solid footing. “There’s a broad perception that malls are dying, and that is the case in some places,” said Ryan McCullough, senior real estate economist with CoStar Group. “But the productivity is quite good on about 80 percent of malls, and the leasing is solid on many new properties.” The malls with the best outlook have attributes that will be found in bulk at The SoNo Collection, as the mall planned by Chicago-based General Growth Properties will be known. “The most important factor, beyond location, is who your tenants are,” McCullough said. “Who the tenants are can go a long way in predicting how a mall is going to do. The second factor beyond that is demographics.” According to GGP, Norwalk is in the middle of one of the most desirable markets in the country, and “1 out of 5 households in the trade area are among the top 1 percent of Americans in terms of wealth.” The mall’s location could hardly be more visible, at the meeting point of Interstate 95 and Route 7, with 150,000 cars traveling by the site daily. And it will have some of the highest-level stores of any shopping center around, with Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s as anchors.

MALLS ADAPT Trends in mall construction in some ways mirror wider tendencies in favor of car-centered development. The postwar era, which led to the dominance of suburbs accessible only by automobile, brought about the dominance of the fortress-style shopping mall placed far from a city center. In recent years, younger people are showing less inclination to own a car. Development trends, capitalizing to some degree on a nationwide drop in crime, are increasingly focused on center cities. Malls have been forced to adapt. “The notion of walkability matters,” said Maureen McAvey, of the Urban Land Institute, adding that people want malls to have plenty of amenities, just like they would want in a city neighborhood. “Many are now offering more services, sometimes including community space, and in some cases there are health facilities inside the mall,” she said. “We see malls nationally that in some cases have a library inside, or a theater, and not just a cinema.” Drawing people away from their computers is a challenge, she said. “Given that the internet offers so much competition, people need to find other reasons to come to the mall,” McAvey said. “It has to be a real attraction.” GGP’s website promises that the SoNo Collection will be “more than a mall; it will be a collection of unique and memorable experiences that will keep shoppers coming back frequently. A marketplace for residents to spend an entire day, it will offer restaurants, coffee shops, exercise and wellness classes, and of course, access to the latest trends in upscale fashion.” Food is another big draw in successful malls, she said. “Malls are moving away from the fast food you’d find in a food court,” McAvey said, adding that nationally up to 30 percent of people go to a mall expressly for a meal. “Now

you see food in different places around the mall, placed strategically.” ECONOMIC BOOST GGP has 120 malls nationwide, second only to Simon Property Group, according to Green Street Advisors, a real estate research firm. While anchor stores drive traffic to a mall, some 80 percent of sales are generated by other retailers. Far from a standalone, Norwalk’s mall is meant to bridge the gap between SoNo to the south and a restaurant-heavy district above it. It is designed to be a part of the urban fabric, not the standalone model of a previous generation. “This is going to be a tremendous boost to the Norwalk economy,” Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling said last month when a rendering of the plan was released. “You’re going to be bringing a lot of people into Norwalk, and when people ... see what we have to offer, they’re not just going to be ‘one stop and go.’” McCullough, of CoStar Group, said this idea is also in line with current trends. “Where retail is looking quite good is in urban locations,” he said. “But usually the path of growth is very limited as to how quickly can you build there.” An open lot like the one where Norwalk’s mall will be built is hard to find. “Retail development is headed more toward the downtown, walkable, urban variety,” McCullough said. “Sometimes we see malls trying to create their own density, sometimes with hotels and office space included.” The SoNo Collection, in fact, is also to include a 170-room hotel and parking for nearly 3,000 cars. “Some malls are struggling, and we don’t think in many cases there’s much of a rescue plan in place,” McCullough said. “But the idea that the mall is dying we think is a myth.” Hugh Bailey is a reporter for Hearst Connecticut Media Group.

Realtors association supports equal housing opportunities for all

A

s we celebrate the 48th anniversary of the federal Fair Housing Act of 1968 and the progress that has been made, sadly, we must recognize that after nearly five decades illegal discrimination in housing is a crime that still exists today. The Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors (HGAR) applauds Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s recent proposal to expand state fair housing protections on the basis of gender identity, as well as the governor’s partnership with Westchester Residential Opportunities (WRO) through its Fair Housing Enforcement Program. I’m proud to note that Realtors incorporated gender identity as a protected class in our code of ethics in 2014. All Realtors subscribe to the Realtor code of ethics, which holds fair and equal service for all among its core tenets. HGAR members receive regular updates as to new developments in fair housing law. Realtors have continuing education pro-

Richard Haggerty

grams available to them to help ensure that they understand the law in their practice of real estate. We support measured government efforts to root out housing discrimination. It is our hope the governor’s program will serve as a great reminder to sellers, non-Re-

altor real estate licensees and landlords that housing discrimination will not and cannot be tolerated. HGAR has had a close collaborative relationship with Westchester Residential Opportunities for many years. WRO is a notfor-profit organization whose mission is to promote equal, affordable and accessible housing opportunities throughout the lower Hudson River Valley. In addition to providing fair housing training for HGAR members, WRO also provides a fair housing helpline and other resources to advance fair housing compliance. Realtors see on a daily basis the fulfillment that comes with homeownership and that inspires us to be become advocates for consumers who are striving to achieve the American Dream of homeownership or in renting a place to call their own. Realtor anti-discrimination efforts include advocating for greater transparency in the process of approving cooperative housing purchases. Today, co-op boards can deny the sale of a co-op that has been agreed

to by the seller and the buyer and may do so without giving a reason for denial. Even more troubling is the fact that a co-op board has no obligation to act within a specific timeframe. The board’s inaction can have the effect of a buyer losing their financing. Realtors have proposed a change to current law requiring co-op boards to respond to applications, which would reduce the potential for discrimination to occur. The Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors vigorously supports the ideal that no one should be discriminated against based on race, color, national origin, disability or familial status as well as the additional protected classes under New York state law, including sexual orientation, military status, age or being a victim of domestic violence. We believe in building strong, diverse communities where all are welcome. Richard Haggerty is CEO of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors in White Plains. He can be reached at Richard.

and cultivate an entrepreneurial spirit. They also have achieved higher levels of education. Many have earned degrees in fields that lend themselves to launching businesses, such as law, accounting and marketing. “Women want to chart their own path,” said Fran Pastore, chief executive officer of the Women’s Business Development Council in Stamford. “I see a lot of women who have fled the glass ceiling corporate environment and taken their expertise to start their own businesses,” she said. “They are finding ways to do something they love, to have control over their financial destiny and make a living doing it.” Wendy Wollner, founder and president of Balancing Life’s Issues Inc., a national training company based in Ossining, said running a business is challenging. “It’s very common to be in a room with 99 percent men at business meetings, and they still ask what am I doing there.” She gives herself seven seconds to establish her credentials — continual revenue growth, 10 employees, a network of 1,000 trainers nationally, contracts with Fortune 500 companies — just to be taken seriously.

Kadish said New York Medical College this fall will extend Sunshine Cottage Road on the Grasslands campus to connect the Skyline Drive facility with the main campus. New York Medical College three years ago paid $17.5 million to acquire the vacant 5-story, approximately 248,000-square-foot office building at 19 Skyline Drive in Mack-Cali Realty Corp.’s Mid-Westchester Executive Park. Kadish said 100,000 square feet of space will be used for the dental school, with 25,000 square feet of shared facilities and the remaining office space used by the medical school. Touro will spend an estimated $25 million to $30 million for property acquisition and construction. The dental school’s community clinic space will not be built until the third year of operation, Kadish noted. In addition to those costs, Touro’s start-up expenses for the dental school will total $10 million to $20 million, he said. Touro in February was awarded a matching grant of $2,075,000 for the dental school project from the state Higher Education Capital Matching Grant Program. The program is administered by the Dormitory Authority State of New York, which in 2014 approved approximately $32.5 million in

Council of Westchester Hall of Fame on April 19, said that one way to be taken seriously is to sign up for every course in your field, participate in programs and get to “know more than the competition.” Last year the Women’s Enterprise Development Center worked with 1,666 women in workshops, seminars, counseling and training programs. More than 100 clients graduated from its 60-hour entrepreneurial training program. Among the graduates of its 2013 program, two-thirds started businesses and nearly all survived two years. “We can give them the tools that help them build their business,” Janiak said. A closer look at the success of women-owned businesses also reveals the fragility of their achievements. Women own 38 percent of all private-sector businesses, according to the American Express study, but employ only 8 percent of the workforce and generate only 4 percent of the nation’s business revenue. American Express based its estimates on surveys of business owners that are done every five years by the U.S. Census Bureau and on gross domestic product numbers and extrapolated trends from 2002 to 2012. Most of the firms have no employees

bond financing for Touro primarily for the Skyline Drive purchase and building renovations project. Kadish said the school will offer a 4-year pre-doctoral program for students leading to the DDS degree, a continuing education program for practicing dentists, and the community clinic. He said Touro has an agreement with Open Door Family Medical Centers, the community health care provider based in Ossining, to supply additional dental care to Open Door’s patients in Westchester and Putnam counties. Kadish said he community clinic service might be extended to northern Bronx residents “depending on need and practicality.” Touro is looking to eventually open satellite clinics in the area, he said. First-year tuition and fees at the new dental school in Westchester will total $61,500; with room and board and other living expenses, a student’s costs are expected to total about $92,000, according to the Touro College of Dental Medicine website. By comparison, first-year tuition and fees at the Columbia University dental school total $84,480, and a student’s total expenses for the academic year amount to nearly $107,000. At the state’s Stony Brook dental school, total first-year costs for a New York resident amount to approximately $79,400,

other than the owners. Many are part-time ventures, meant to supplement another job or plug an income hole. There was a time when women couldn’t even get access to credit. They had to get a man — a husband, father, son, brother — to co-sign business loans. The Equal Credit Opportunity Act of 1974 made it illegal to base credit decisions on race, sex, marital status, age national origin. Yet, lack of access to capital is the number one reason women-owned businesses cannot grow and sustain themselves, Pastore said. “There is still a bias against women’s access to capital,” she said. Most new firms need $100,000 or less to

get started or expand. For instance, some government programs offer funding but require the applicant to make a matching investment that cash-strapped owners of startup firms can’t afford. Pastore’s organization is creating a microlending fund to fill the gap. Beginning with a $100,000 pool of money, the development council plans to make loans of $5,000 to $10,000 to business owners who don’t have access to credit. It hopes to build up a $3 million investment pool in the next few years. The only serious way to grow a business, according to one school of thought, Weeks said, is to “shoot for the stars,” to seek out venture capital, to emulate the story of somebody “who came out of nowhere to become the billion-dollar unicorn company of the year.” Instead, she thinks more attention should be paid to the everyday stories of women who identified opportunities and solved problems in their particular line of work. These role models share stories at the women’s business centers, friendly places where women learn the mechanics of starting a business and get the peer support of like-minded entrepreneurs. “That’s less sexy,” she said, “but every business is important for the health and vitality of the community.”

while non-resident dental students can expect to pay about $109,400. Touro officials said the dental college also will conduct research projects on subjects that include how to reduce the cost of effective dental care and translational research that applies scientific discoveries to produce new devices and treatments for patients. Touro has named Dr. Jay P. Goldsmith as the dental school’s founding dean. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Goldsmith is a former professor, program director and deputy chief in New York Medical College’s Department of Dental Medicine. Dr. Edward F. Farkas has been named senior associate dean for clinical affairs and

chairman of dentistry at the dental college. Touro officials said Farkas, who practices general dentistry in New York City, “has been involved with the founding of the dental school from the outset.” Dr. Edward C. Halperin, chancellor and CEO of New York Medical College, in the announcement said the dental school’s location at the medical college campus “gives the school and its students a competitive edge.” At full capacity, the dental school will enroll about 440 students. Kadish said the school received 2,300 applications from students in January, from which 500 students were selected for interviews. Well under half of the applicants are New York state residents, he said.


United HealthCare bowing out of Connecticut health insurance exchange BY KEVIN ZIMMERMAN kzimmerman@westfairinc.com

U

nited Healthcare’s (UHC) announcement that it will exit Connecticut’s health insurance exchange may not necessarily adversely affect very many residents, but it may represent the first step in a major overhaul of Obamacare. UHC — the insurance wing of UnitedHealth Group, the largest writer of coverage in the U.S. — said in its quarterly earnings release on April 19 that it plans to withdraw from almost all Affordable Care Act state exchanges, including Connecticut’s Access Health CT (AHCT), by 2017. “The smaller overall market size and shorter-term higher risk profile within this market segment continue to suggest we cannot broadly serve it on an effective and sustained basis,” said United CEO Stephen Hemsley during the company’s quarterly earnings conference call.

“I THINK YOU’LL SEE OTHER CARRIERS GET OUT. BUT EVEN IF THEY STAY IN, WHAT DOES IT MEAN? AT WHAT PRICE TO CONSUMERS? THEY COULD RAISE RATES BY 25 TO 30 PERCENT.”

The company has since confirmed TWB that it is also leaving Alabama, Colorado, Grant Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, WCBJ North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, 7.375” x 7.125” h Texas andwWashington. 4-4-16 “We do not have an update on New York at this time,” said UHC spokeswoman Maria Gordon-Shydlo. Connecticut officials moved quickly to reassure residents that they will not be left

out in the cold. In a statement, Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman, who also serves as chair of the AHCT board, said, “Health care exchanges throughout the country are impacted by United Healthcare’s decision, so first and foremost, we want to assure Connecticut customers that their health benefits remain unchanged through the end of the year. “We are confident that in the next open enrollment, all of our consumers will continue to find the health care plans that best meet their needs,” she continued. “State exchanges will have some fluctuation, but AHCT will continue to meet the needs of

Connecticut residents.” Added AHCT CEO Jim Wadleigh: “Be assured that the team at Access Health CT is dedicated to making this transition as smooth as possible as their customers reenter the marketplace in 2017. We will reach out to the consumers who auto-renew and help them choose a new plan. The Affordable Care Act creates a dynamic marketplace, which is exactly what we want for consumers.” The three other carriers that sell plans through AHCT — Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, ConnectiCare, and HealthyCT — have » UNITED, page 30

“Next year we will remain in only a handful of states, and we will not carry financial exposure from exchanges into 2017. We continue to remain an advocate for more stable and  sustainable approaches to serving this market and those who rely on it for their care.” In January, UHC said it had lost approximately $475 million on ACA-compliant plans in 2015 and expected to lose more than $500 million this year, hinting at that time that it might begin pulling out of state exchanges. Which states will be among Hemsley’s remaining “handful” is unclear at the moment. United had earlier announced it would exit

Nurse helps men battle their demons

I have to go. I’ve got a code blue.” With those words, Laurel McCullagh abruptly ends a telephone conversation and hurries off to minister to a drug addict or alcoholic being treated at St. Christopher’s Inn at Graymoor in Garrison. McCullagh is director of nursing and admissions for the shelter, which offers ambulatory detox and rehabilitation to men. The clientele is housed at St. Christopher’s, a shelter on Graymoor property. “Living at home and coming in for treatment doesn’t always work,” she said. “In some households family members may drink or

use drugs, making staying clean a difficult challenge. In other cases the client has no place to go – perhaps the wife has thrown him out for alcoholism. Our outpatient withdrawal program offers the environment needed for one to detox and begin to embrace a life of change.” Heroin use is more prominent now among the population of St. Christopher’s Inn, McCullagh said. “In 2009, 18 percent of clients admitted using heroin. In 2015, 47 percent of admissions identify heroin as their primary drug. In 2009, 18 percent of clients admitted were between ages 18 to 25. In 2014, that number rose to 44 percent.” Laurel McCullagh

McCullagh said it takes a strong stomach to deal with some situations she has encountered. Recalling an admission of nearly a decade ago, she greeted a man “with the blankest expression I ever saw,” she said. “He reacted to nothing. There was no human connection. Working with our professional staff, he slowly opened up, divulging a history of horrific childhood sexual abuse. He and his sister had both been the victims of this abuse perpetrated by friends of the family. One particular day he shared a story so graphic that I couldn’t maintain a calm facial expression. He asked if I was okay and I decided to be honest and tell him that I felt like I was going to vomit. He replied, ‘That’s how I feel every day.’” The man is now clean and helping other addicts. “Sadly, his sister, also an alcoholic, was not able to conquer her demons,” she said. “She died a few years ago from liver failure, caused by her addiction.” McCullagh said more parental education in what to look for and how to handle it is needed in the community. She urges parents and spouses not to be enablers. “You think you are helping when you fix problems that substance abusers have created for themselves, but you only enable substance abusers to die,” she warned. “The more enablers take on, the angrier they become at spending their whole lives fixing everything. Enabling leads to anger and resentments, and in your anger, you are forced to endure a life meant to be enjoyed.” A West Nyack resident, McCullagh grew up in Massachusetts and New Jersey. Planning an advertising career, she enrolled in a program at SUNY Oneonta involving a final year of business study at the Fashion Institute of Technology. After receiving her bachelor’s degree she went to work for a publicity agency in Manhattan. “But, I craved something more fulfilling.” McCullagh’s journey to that fulfillment got off to a very painful start when she dropped a large typewriter on her foot at home. Her broken toes were treated at Pascack Valley Hospital where she was inspired by the nurse who treated her. She went back to school as a student in the nursing program at Rockland Community College and then went on to work at St. John’s Riverside Hospital in Yonkers. “I came to St. Christopher’s on the day before 9/11,” she said. Challenging Careers focuses on the exciting and unusual business lives of Hudson Valley residents. Comments or suggestions may be emailed to Catherine Portman-Laux at cplaux@optonline.net.


Astorino punches at Cuomo, Democrats over Indian Point, minimum wage BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH rdeffenbaugh@westfairinc.com

W

estchester County Executive Robert Astorino questioned the motives of critics of Indian Point Energy Center and maintained his criticism for a statewide minimum wage increase in a panel discussion on April 19. The discussion, hosted by Hudson Valley Pattern for Progress, a nonprofit economic think tank, featured Astorino, Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell and Rockland County Executive Ed Day. The executives addressed questions about their respective counties from a Jeopardy-style board at the Crowne Plaza in Suffern. Astorino’s first question involved Indian Point and critics, including Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who are calling for it to close. “I think it’s totally irresponsible to say ‘close Indian Point’ without a realistic plan to make up that energy source for the entire region’s needs,” said Astorino, a Republican in his second term.

Day and Odell, both Republicans, expressed similar concerns that the minimum wage increase could mean fewer jobs overall. “In a county where we are driven by Main Street, our business owners are struggling every day to keep the doors open,” Odell said. “I know the impact it’s going to have on our business community and they know it.” Astorino and Day were asked about the construction process of the new Tappan Zee bridge, the connector of the executive’s two counties. Again, Astorino used the question as a platform to question leadership in Albany. He said he has long advocated for a replacement to the Tappan Zee, but that more transparency is needed on the project’s financials. “I think the public has a right to know what the ultimate cost of this bridge is, how it’s going to be financed and what your toll is going to be,” Astorino said. “But it is a great project and has put a lot of people to work.” The state sent $700 million from its 2016 budget to the state Thruway Authority to help with infrastructure costs, including construc-

Astorino said politics are driving the calls to close the nuclear plant. “If we’re going to grow, and the county has grown… you need a source of energy,” Astorino said. “So to close that and pray that it is sunny every day for solar isn’t going to happen.” He added that he does view solar and wind energy as “part of the mix,” but it would be impossible to shut Indian Point without a spike in rates or a slowing of growth. On the issue of a $15 minimum wage, which was passed in the state budget and will start in Westchester County in six years, Astorino continued his opposition to a central policy of Cuomo’s. Astorino, who ran against Cuomo in the 2014 election, called the policy “destructive to New York state.” “Economics will always trump ideology in the long term,” Astorino said. “So the irony is, those who they are really trying to help, ostensibly, are going to be hurt the most. Those with lower skills, lower wages right now, poor, minorities… those economic opportunities are going to be taken away.”

tion of the bridge, which a Cuomo representative told The Journal News could hold off a rate hike until 2020. Speculation started in 2012 that the toll could reach as high as $14, a number Cuomo was also against. Day said that a price that high would be unacceptable. “What happens when someone starts heading toward the bridge and they are facing a $15 toll?” Day said. “Do they continue over to a place like Palisades Center, which provides 22 percent of our sales tax revenue, or do they make a sudden left turn and go down to Ridge Hill?” For a final question, Astorino was asked about the continued population growth in New York City and whether he wanted Westchester to be a part of that growth. While he cautioned that he is not looking to make the county New York City’s “sixth borough,” growth could be good if done correctly. “Anyone that wants to come to Westchester from anywhere is more than welcome,” Astorino said. “But I think we have to be careful that we do not overgrow and become something that we are not.”

ASK ANDI

BY ANDI GRAY

Learn to sell yourself to beat competitors We are absolutely getting beat out on jobs. Even with referrals we are losing bids to a competitor who is doing shoddy work, making mistakes on estimating, installing the wrong materials and billing clients for significant upcharges. Obviously we need to be doing a better job selling ourselves. Help! THOUGHTS OF THE DAY: Figure out if you’re calling on the right prospects. Help prospects discover your value through questions. Make sure you’re working with prospects who will do more than collect bids. Ask your referrals to get involved in more than vouching for you. It’s not enough to take pride in your work. You also have to be able to get across your advantages, while focusing on opportunities that favor your company. Every prospect makes a unique buying decision. Every seller has something unique to offer. The closer the

match between what you offer and what the prospect wants, the easier it gets to make a sale. Save time and energy. Ask questions to figure out which prospects are worth your while. Don’t assume anything. • DOES THE PROSPECT VALUE QUALITY? Cares about quality equals keep going, since that’s what you’re hoping to sell. Thinks quality doesn’t matter equals look elsewhere for a potential sale. • HOW MUCH PRICING FLEXIBILITY DOES THE PROSPECT HAVE? Lots of flexibility equals buyers have control and can make decisions to acquire something they want. Limited flexibility equals make sure you can do the job in the price range specified, or get out now. • WILL THE PROSPECT TAKE TIME TO LEARN ABOUT WHAT MAKES A JOB GOOD OR BAD? Willing to take time to learn equals prospect will invest in building a relationship, gaining knowledge to make an informed buying decision. Unwilling to take time equals prospect is likely to make a mistake and choose poorly, which might not bode well for you as you try to inform the prospect about what goes into quality.

The Activator

• DOES THE PROSPECT HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WITH SHODDY WORK OR BAIT-AND-SWITCH PRICING? Since you’re selling the opposite of shoddy work and pricing that changes at the end of the job, you need to find prospects who know they can get burned. Once you’re past the basic questions, dig deeper. Think about your best customers. What attributes do they exhibit? What is it about your company that they value? Pick a list of a dozen good customers. For each one, list five things that caused you to rate them as good. Look for common themes. Build questions that help you discover if future prospects think or act the same way. Favor buyers who want to get to know you. Who makes the final decision? Who has to live with the solution? Who will act as technical expert? When can you meet with them? Conserve selling time and energy. Hone in on prospects who want you to explore the fit. Otherwise, think about moving on before you get burned. Practice living in the land of “facts” instead of the land of “perpetual hope,” when it comes to deciding where to

spend your selling time. Finally, if an existing customer believes in you enough to refer you, that’s a great endorsement. But it’s not enough. Make them aware of any bidding tidbits you’ve learned that could help to boost your standing. Ask referrals to tell your prospect specifically why they selected your company over the competition, relating their decision to the prospects’ hot buttons. And remember to check in with your referral sources to find out what they have coming up for future work. LOOKING FOR A GOOD BOOK?

March job growth goes out like a lamb BY REECE ALVAREZ

rivate sector job growth in March was flat with only modest gains in government work, according to the latest job growth report from the Connecticut Department of Labor. The department’s March Labor Situation Report estimates the government supersector added 300 jobs from the previous month, bringing the total to 237,800 jobs, but has seen an overall decline of 1,400 jobs since March 2015. Private sector employment was unchanged in March and now totals 1,447,800 jobs, an overall increase of 16,400 jobs since March 2015. The largest job gains were in the trade, transportation and  utilities supersector with 1,300 jobs gained followed by transportation, warehousing and utility components, which picked up 900 jobs. The leisure and hospitality super sector gained 500 jobs. The construction and mining supersector experienced the greatest losses, 1,100 jobs, “which seemed unusual considering the warm weather,” the labor report noted. Minor job losses were also posted from the manufacturing supersector, 200 jobs, and finan-

cial activities, 100 jobs. The Hartford-West Hartford-East Hartford region led the state in job growth with 1,100 jobs added in March followed by the Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk region, which gained 1,000 jobs, a 0.2 percent increase to now total 411,900 jobs On the unemployment front, the statewide seasonally adjusted unemployment rate increased to 5.7 percent, a two-tenths of a percent increase from the 5.5 percent unemployment rate in February. Andy Condon, director of the office of research for the labor department said the rise in unemployment was unexpected, but pointed to some silver-linings. “The rise in unemployment occurred in a growing labor force, meaning it was driven by more people entering the labor market looking for work rather than a decrease in the number of employed,” he said. “Job growth is occurring, but not fast enough to employ all of those recently entering the market.” Pete Gioia, an economist with the state’s largest business industry, the Connecticut Business and Industry Association (CBIA), said the news is a continued sign of the state’s struggle to adjust to a new economic reality.

According to the CBIA, year over year the state has added 15,000 new jobs. Of those, only 800 were in manufacturing, and 100 in finance and insurance — typically higher paying jobs. The majority of new jobs added over the last year were in the leisure and hospitality sector (4,600) and trade, transportation and utilities (3,900). “This only exacerbates the problems that  Connecticut is  facing, including fiscal instability with the state budget,” said Gioia.  “Nothing would be a stronger confidence builder, or be a better catalyst for strong economic growth than for the legislature to close the state budget gap without adding to the cost and burdens of creating and maintaining jobs.” Overall, Connecticut has now recovered 91,400 jobs, or 76.7 percent of the 119,100 seasonally adjusted total nonfarm jobs that were lost in the state during the March 2008- February 2010 employment recession, according to the Labor Department. The state’s private sector has recovered 90.7 percent of the jobs that were lost during the recession, regaining 101,300 jobs of the 111,700 private sector positions that were lost. The unemployment rate nationwide currently sits at 5 percent and according to data cited by the CBIA, the nation has regained 161 percent of jobs lost during the recession.

Norwalk company pulls the curtain back on city’s rebranding BY REECE ALVAREZ

R

ralvarez@westfairinc.com

ebranding is a staple of the marketing and advertising industry, taking something old and making it feel new again by rehabbing its image or reputation. But that was not the case with Norwalk, said Gary Seve Esposito, a partner in the Zunda Group, the firm behind the city’s rebranding. “While other cities and towns have tried to reinvent themselves recently, Norwalk didn’t need to be reinvented,” Esposito said. “It simply needed to be understood.” Norwalk has been undergoing a renais-

sance, especially within its downtown district where major residential and commercial development is occurring. Residential developments are bringing hundreds of housing units, including the Ironworks on North Water Street, which is also adding 20,700 square feet of retail and restaurant space. The Waypointe District in downtown Norwalk will add 500 apartments and 100,000 square feet of retail, medical and commercial space once completed. In addition, Datto, the billion-dollar evaluated data-backup company, has committed to the city by expanding its already tremendous presence along the Route 7 corridor.

Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling with Gary Seve Esposito, a partner with the Zunda Group, the company behind the city’s recent rebranding.

The mission to rebrand the city began in 2015 when Economic Development Director Elizabeth Stocker sat down with Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling and an array of city stakeholders. “It was just time for us to do a rebranding,” Stocker said. “If we are going to promote the city of Norwalk to businesses and visitors as a destination and to our residents as a community we can all be proud of.” “A brand was necessary to help reposition Norwalk,” Rilling said. “(It) will influence and shape the way the community and others think, feel and respond to the city of Norwalk.” Thus began the process of what would eventually lead to Norwalk’s new logo and slogan, “Sound of Connecticut.” According to Esposito, the rebranding took between nine and 10 months and involved detailed research and investigation into the perception of the city from both residents and neighboring communities. No one was available to disclose the cost of the rebranding at press time. The majority of feedback was positive, Esposito said, but one point of criticism was the negative perception of the city. “We needed to correct that,” he said. “A lot of other cities have repositioned themselves and rebranded themselves and in the process have tried to skew their image in a different direction, to build on business only and or residential only and try to change the impression of a given city. In the case of Norwalk we didn’t need to be something we weren’t, we needed to just get the message across better.” That posed a challenge for the Zunda » REBRANDING, page 36

Intellia’s 4-year-old CRISPR/Cas technology platform against up to 10 targets. The research will focus primarily on therapies for diseases that can be treated by editing genes in the liver. The companies in a press release said Intellia will receive a $75 million upfront payment and could collect significant milestone and royalty payments on potential Regeneron products. The companies have agreed to co-develop and co-commercialize a certain number of targets generated during the collaboration. Transthyretin amyloidosis, a neurodegenerative disease, is the first target to be jointly developed and potentially commercialized by the companies. Discovered by an Intellia founder in 2012, the CRISPR/Cas9 technology can cut DNA in precise locations so as to selectively knock out, repair or insert specific genetic sequences. Regeneron and Intellia scientists said it potentially could be applied across multiple

therapeutic areas, including autoimmune diseases, metabolic and blood disorders, cancer and rare and genetic-based diseases. George D. Yancopoulos, Regeneron’s chief scientific officer of Regeneron and president of Regeneron Laboratories, in the recent announcement noted that researchers in the Regeneron Genetics Center, at the company’s headquarters on the Landmark at Eastview campus, has already been identifying important human genetic targets in treating diseases. “We believe combining these capabilities with Intellia’s technology holds real promise for serious diseases that have been historically difficult to address and expands our ability to help patients where antibody-based therapies may not be the optimal solution,” he said. According to Intellia’s website, geneticists have used the gene-slicing technology to rid mice of muscular dystrophy and cure them of a rare liver disease, make human cells

immune to HIV, correct sickle cell anemia and alter cancer cells to make them more susceptible to chemotherapy. The technological platform is said to be ideal for “developing an entirely new class of genetic medicines” and led the MIT Technology Review to describe it as “the biggest biotech discovery of the century.” Nessan Bermingham, founder and CEO of Intellia Therapeutics said of the licensing and collaboration agreement, “Regeneron’s focus on advancing science to medicine is an excellent fit with Intellia’s approach, and together, we aim to bring potential cures to patients who are suffering from life-threatening rare diseases and genetic diseases.”

FLUBLOK MAKER STRIKES VACCINE LICENSING DEAL IN BRAZIL A BRAZILIAN BIOPHARMACEUTICAL PARTNERSHIP WILL seek regulatory approval in Brazil to market Flublok, a technologically innovative influenza vaccine developed by Connecticutbased Protein Sciences Corp., which operates a manufacturing facility on the former Pfizer Inc. campus in Pearl River. Officials at Protein Sciences headquarters in Meriden, Conn., recently announced the exclusive licensing agreement with Orygen Biotecnologia SA, a joint venture between the Brazilian pharmaceutical companies Eurofarma Laboratórios SA and Biolab Sanus Farmaceutica Ltd. If Brazilian regulators approve the protein-based vaccine, Orygen will market Flublok there. Protein Sciences will manufacture the vaccine and receive “significant” license and commercial milestone payments, according to the companies. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The companies said Brazil has experienced a severe and lethal outbreak of H1N1 swine flu in recent months. The viral infection has killed almost twice as many people over the past three months as it did in all of 2015, according to Brazil’s Health Ministry. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2013 for use by adults in the U.S., Flublok, unlike traditional vaccines, is made in an egg-free system using modern cell culture technology, making it unnecessary to use an infectious influenza virus or antibiotics in manufacturing. Instead, Protein Sciences uses recombinant DNA and a modified virus that infects insects to produce large quantities of hemagglutinin protein, the active ingredient in flu vaccines. Manon Cox, president and CEO of Protein Sciences, said the partnership with Orygen “gives a way for Flublok to enter the Southern Hemisphere, which has an opposite flu season from the Northern Hemisphere, and thereby opens up a second sales cycle for the vaccine.” — John Golden


Judge rules in favor of Fleetwood apartment project BY BILL HELTZEL

bheltzel@westfairinc.com

ir rights are not real estate, a Supreme Court justice has ruled, thus clearing an obstacle to construction of an $85 million apartment building in the Fleetwood section of Mount Vernon. The dispute over the meaning of “real estate” pitted New York City developers against one another. Alexander Development Group of Manhattan and the Bluestone Organization of Queens plan to build a 16-f loor, 249-apartment tower at 42 Broad Street West. They want to demolish a building that housed a grocery store and pharmacy and renovate the adjacent, deteriorating, money-losing Fleetwood Garage. The parking garage is at the center of the case. They city built it in 1979 and has operated it ever since. But Mount Vernon does not own the land. It leased the air rights. Alexander Development bought the land two years ago for $3.2 million to provide parking for future apartment tenants. Then the city agreed to terminate the air rights for $3.25 million. The deal allows continued public use of the garage, but nearby merchants and landlords were concerned that they would lose access to the best parking spaces. CD Fleetwood Associates and Gramatan Realty, which lease spaces in the garage for tenants in nearby businesses, sued the city and developers on Dec. 28 to stop the project. They argued that the city charter requires the city council to approve the sale or lease of city real estate by a fourfifths supermajority vote. The deal terminating air rights was approved by a 3-2 vote in September and a 3-1 vote in October, both times falling one vote short of a supermajority. Supreme Court Acting Justice Susan Cacace ruled on April 7 that air rights, under a “plain reading” of the city charter, do not meet the definition of real property. Furthermore, she said, there was no transfer of property or title, so there was no sale of real estate. Cacace ruled that the council had “lawfully adopted” the deal. Mark Alexander, president of the devel-

opment company, said he could close on financing in six to eight weeks, then begin demolition of the retail building and renovation of the garage, and finish the apartment tower in 18 to 24 months. “There most certainly will be an appeal,” said Jonathan D. Kraut, the attorney who represents CD Fleetwood and Gramatan Realty. He said it would be foolish for the developer to proceed and he would be surprised if any commercial lender would fund the project while an appeal is pending. “He should be prepared to be shocked,” Alexander said.

The 16-story apartment building would be built adjacent to the Fleetwood Garage, which would be renovated as part of the project. File photo by Bob Rozycki

The successful bid that put the contractor out of business

usiness is slow. Nothing is in the pipeline. Then miraculously an RFP pops up. It’s right in your wheelhouse, but you know there will be a lot of bidders. What to do? Cut your margin to the bone to make payroll? You lowball the project, submitting a bid with what you hope is a 1 percent profit margin. You make it through the first few requisitions. Your subcontractors, also hungry for the work, are meeting their commitments and the job is going according to schedule. Then, horror of horrors: delay. There is a strike in the Venezuelan copper mines causing a shortage in available copper wire. Your electrician can’t get wire on time and you lose a month on your schedule. Time is of the essence in the contract and there are no damages for delay. You ask for, and get, time, but no money. Your monthly job overhead for insurance, job trailers, supervisory personnel and the like continue at their usual pace without interruption. They eat into your thin profit

margin. Then another delay. The plumbing subcontractor can’t pay the higher price for copper pipe and defaults. Without the plumber the project falls further behind. Your costs continue to accrue while you scramble for a replacement plumber, but his price is much higher. By now, your thin profit margin is gone, and the threat of liquidated damages is looming. You’re tapping into your line of credit and it’s nearly maxed out. With personal liability to the bank, you’re afraid that your years of hard work are about to come to naught. You start missing payments to your subcontractors and the surety is receiving notices of claim. Project default is on the horizon. The above scenario is all too common in the construction industry. It develops from the misconception that a construction company is like a shark: it must always be moving forward or it will die. That false analogy has brought many successful businesses to their knees. How to avoid the trap? Don’t take a job

solely for cash flow. You are virtually guaranteeing a losing proposition by doing so. Better to price your bid correctly than to undercut the competition and lose money.

Keep in mind that you will be held to your bid and if a surety bond is required by the owner the indemnity agreement you signed with the surety is a very onerous agreement. Most indemnity agreements call for personal liability on the owners and their spouses. All of your personal assets are at risk. If you are already in the soup with default looming, there are only a few things you can try. The contractor must look to slash its office overhead. Terminating longterm employees is painful, but may be necessary if the company is to survive. Any perks, such as cars, unnecessary insurance and the like must go. The next difficult step is to go to the project owner and lay your problems on the table. Look closely at the contract language, there may be terms that give the owner discretion to issue a change order where delays occur that are beyond the contractor’s control. Even then, an owner’s discretion may be limited by its relationship with the lender. On many, if not most » CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

current construction projects, the lender has become a virtual partner with the project owner and the lender often has no sympathy for (or experience with) the problems on a construction project. Even if your requests for assistance from the owner are fruitless, your openness with the owner can be beneficial if there is litigation down the line. A judge or jury may find that an intransigent owner who knows of the contractor’s predicament caused by matters beyond his control is entitled to little sympathy when the owner seeks recovery. If there is a surety on the project, you can also ask for its financial assistance. Again, it is absolutely necessary that the contractor facing default be completely open and honest with the surety. You will be asked to confirm the obligation assumed by the indemnity agreement you and your spouse executed. You will also be asked to pledge assets and in certain circumstances to liquidate those assets in order to fund the completion of the project. The earlier you take these steps the better. If the project is still moving forward, the surety is more likely to consider funding its completion through its original contractor/ bond principal. If a project shuts down, the costs to complete skyrocket. Call for a job-site meeting, bringing all necessary parties together, including the owner, its lender, the surety and the key subcontractors. Don’t look for sympathy. At that meeting, it is imperative to reach an agreement that results in completion of the project. When the work has been completed it is much easier to make deals with an owner who can now make use of his completed project with a surety who has capped its exposure and with subcontractors who have also limited their expenses and liabilities. Finish the project if at all possible. Your options will increase. You may be in a position to take on a profitable project. You can make deals with your subcontractors to pay items over time and the same can be true for the surety. With the project incomplete, damages continue to accrue and will often spin out of control. The end result is bankruptcy. Taking on a project at any cost in order to maintain cash flow can often be just that — any cost. Every experienced contractor knows that on every construction project there are unanticipated problems that arise. There has to be a sufficient margin in every contract price to survive the ups and downs in the construction industry. Neil B.

Corporate Angel Network soars to milestone BY ALEESIA FORNI

E

aforni@westfairinc.com

ighteen-month-old Baron Yerby may not be your typical corporate jet passenger. But that didn’t prevent him from hitching a ride aboard global tech giant NCR’s private plane from New Jersey to Atlanta on April 14. Thanks to Corporate Angel Network (CAN), a nonprofit organization that arranges free travel for cancer patients aboard corporate jets, he and his parents benefited from empty seats on the late-night flight. And while the trip alone was a monumental occasion for the Yerbys, it also marked a significant milestone in Westchester-based CAN’s history as the 50,000th flight provided by the organization. Like in Baron’s case, many of the patients the organization helps have run out of local treatment options. At just 3 months old, Baron was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer. After doctors in his home city of Atlanta exhausted all treatment options available in the area, the only course of action was a procedure performed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, some 900 miles away from the Yerby home. These treatments will be ongoing for the foreseeable future, leaving Baron’s parents, Johnathan and Casey, to arrange monthly travel plans to Sloan Kettering. Johnathan Yerby said that coordinating travel arrangements to New York is “a constant battle, besides the cancer.” It was during one such trip to the hospital that the Yerbys learned about CAN through another family who had used its services. “(CAN) takes away one of the stresses,” Yerby said. The organization traces its roots to Westchester in 1981 and a vision of three people. Leonard M. Greene, founder and president of Safe Flight Instrument Corp., Priscilla Blum, a licensed commercial pilot who flew recreationally out of Westchester, and Jay N. Weinberg, then owner of a Mount Vernon-based Avis Car Rental franchise, together developed the idea of asking corporations to accept cancer patients as guest passengers. All three had firsthand experience of the difficulties facing cancer patients and their families. Blum and Weinberg were each cancer survivors themselves, while Greene lost his wife to the disease. Their idea grew into what is today a

staff of six, along with the help of 30 parttime volunteers, who work in an office at the Westchester County Airport to arrange more than 2,500 patient flights per year. Executive Director Peter Fleiss hopes to bring renewed attention to the organization via the 50,000th flight, with the ultimate goal of letting cancer patients know they have options when faced with the often daunting task of arranging travel to receive treatment. Still, coordinating flights for the roughly 500 patients per month who request assistance can prove difficult. The organization is usually able to fly about half of those who register. “The problem is, we have more of a need than we have lift capacity,” Fleiss said. Ultimately, the organization aims to make patients’ lives and the lives of their families, “considerably less stressful during a very difficult time.” Along with reducing the emotional stress of travel on patients and their families, CAN allows patients to avoid germ-laden airports and planes. In the Yerbys’ case, the ability to hitch a ride on the jet took away much of the usual stresses of commercial travel. Compared with a commercial flight, which includes a 3-hour trip to the airport,

parking, and trying to keep a 1-year-old entertained, the experience flying with CAN was “so much better,” Yerby said. “The flight over, (Baron) was so calm, so easy to deal with,” Yerby said, also noting that it was “so much easier for Baron, who tends to squirm and get feisty when we fly commercial, because he’s sitting on our laps and can’t move around.” CAN also does not set any income limits for the patients it serves, something the Yerby family appreciates. “We fall into a gap,” Yerby said, of having too high an income to qualify for aid from certain charities, while still being unable to shoulder the burden of mounting medical and travel expenses. Fleiss said that the organization is interested in helping patients at all income levels, adding that “quite frankly, it would be difficult to draw a financial line” for potential patients. Atlanta-based NCR has been working with CAN since 2010. NCR is among the more than 500 corporations that participate in CAN’s program, including half of the Fortune 100 and many in the Fortune 500.

Business Council honors Hall awardees BY JOHN GOLDEN

U

jgolden@westfairinc.com

shered in by the blasting strains of rock and roll hits from the Sixties, six small businesses and corporations were inducted into the Business Council of Westchester Hall of Fame recently in New Rochelle. In keeping with the evening’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame theme, the annual awards event honored “business rock stars” from health care, banking, sports marketing, business consulting, education and retail building supplies before an audience of about 600 diners at the Glen Island Harbour Club. Westchester Medical Center  President and CEO Michael Israel accepted the Business Council’s Corporate Citizenship Award on behalf of WMC, which in the last decade has grown from a $500 million public benefits corporation with three hospitals on its Valhalla campus to a $1.2 billion regional health network with about 10,000 employees and 10 hospitals across eight counties, he said. John Tolomer, president and CEO of The Westchester Bank, winner of the Business

Council’s Small Business Award for 2016, described the community bank’s struggle to survive the “financial meltdown” that began a few months after its founding in Yonkers in 2008. Initially operating from two double-wide trailers, the 56-employee bank now headquartered in White Plains operates five branches and its seeking a sixth location, Tolomer said. Its assets in seven years have grown from $39 million to more than $600 million while the bank’s lending has increased from $7 million to $410 million. Wendy Wollner, founder and president of Balancing Life’s Issues  in Ossining, received the Women in Business Award for her work promoting work-life balance in corporate training programs and lectures. Her 15-year-old company’s clients have included IBM, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America. The College of Westchester, a for-profit degree-granting school in White Plains, received the Family-Owned Business Award. Purchased by Ernest Sutkowski in 1973, when it was known as The Westchester Business Institute, the college has been owned by the same family for 43 years. Peekskill’s oldest business, N.

Co., a retail building products center at 2 N. Water St. on the city’s riverfront, was honored with the Business Council Chairman’s Recognition Award. Founded in 1848, the business is one of the oldest retail lumberyards in the U.S. still owned by the same family, according to the Business Council. Accepting the award was Jeffrey Dain, company president and great-great-grandson of the lumberyard’s founder, Nathaniel Dain. Brandon Steiner, founder and CEO of Steiner Sports, a sports memorabilia and marketing business with about 100 employees in New Rochelle, described himself as a “serial entrepreneur” when accepting the Entrepreneurial Success Award for his company. “Entrepreneurship is a risky proposition,” said Steiner, comparing his business career to piloting a sailboat when “I don’t know which way the wind is blowing, I don’t know where I am.” The marketer of Yankee memorabilia dispensed extra advice beyond entrepreneurism: don’t eat any ballpark food until after the third inning. “Before that it’s probably from the game before,” he said.

BUSINESS OF POLITICS TOPIC OF FORUM PUNDITS AND PRACTITIONERS, TWO CONSULTANTS and a politician, will offer the insiders’ view of the business side of political campaigns at Pace University on May 5. “They will not talk about the issues per se,” said John Ravitz, executive vice president of the Business Council of Westchester, “but what’s involved in building the infrastructure of a campaign.” The Business Council of Westchester and the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation are hosting the event. The “Business of Politics” forum is also meant to stimulate long-term thinking. “We want people to start thinking,” Ravitz said,” Could my business play a role in a campaign?” Speakers include Evan Stavisky, a political and legislative strategist for The Parkside Group in Albany and New York City; Bill O’Reilly, a principal in The November Team communications firm in South Salem, and Tim Bishop, a former Democatic congressman from Suffolk County. The forum will be moderated by Ravitz and Laurence Gottlieb, president of the Hudson Valley Economic Development  Corp. It will be held from 8 to 9:30 p.m. at Pace’s Pleasantville campus. Admission costs $25. — Bill Heltzel

WESTCHESTER & FAIRFIELD COUNTY

BUSINESS JOURNALS IN BRIEF

WESTMED CONTINUES CONN. EXPANSION

ORTHOPAEDIC ASSOCIATES OF STAMFORD (OAS) is joining Westchester County-based Westmed Medical Group as part of the latter’s ongoing expansion into Connecticut. Headquartered in Purchase, Westmed – a multispecialty group medical practice with over 300 physicians in 12 locations in Westchester and Fairfield counties – touts its “one-stop shopping” approach to medical care, which allows patients to consult with a number of internists and specialists during a single office visit. “We’d spoken with Orthopaedic Associates off and on for a number of years,” said Richard Morel, Westmed’s co-medical director. “(OAS orthopedic surgeon) Andrew Haas is married to one of our internists, so they knew us well through that.” Still, moving into Connecticut was delayed for some time as Westmed went about agreeing to contracts with the state’s various insurance carriers. Since that process was completed, it has opened a pair of facilities in Greenwich and a satellite office in Darien.

“We felt that now was the time to move further up into Stamford,” Morel said, noting that Westmed’s attraction to Fairfield is due to the similarities between the two counties’ populations, hospital structures and the fact that there is “no large independent physician-owned and physician-run group there.” The 50-year-old Orthopaedic Associates will remain at 1281 East Main St. in Stamford, but patients will now benefit from the additional support that Westmed offers. That support includes on-staff operators working around the clock and access to the “My WESTMED” patient portal, which allows patients to schedule appointments, communicate with their physicians, view lab results, request referrals and renew prescriptions. The system is part of what Morel says is Westmed’s “unfractionated medical care,” which obviates the sometimes cumbersome back-and-forth needed via numerous phone calls, faxes and other activities, to streamline the entire process. “We are respectful of the patient’s time,” Morel said. “We offer a comprehensive level

of care and all the members of our care team communicate with each other regularly.” OAS officially joins Westmed on July 11. Morel said the group’s new Stamford foothold will likely lead to further expansion throughout Fairfield County.

MAMARONECK DOCTOR RE-ELECTED TO STATE MEDICAL SOCIETY POST

KIRA A. GERACI-CIARDULLO, AN ALLERGIST and immunologist in private practice in Mamaroneck, was re-elected speaker of the Medical Society of the State of New York at the organization’s 210th annual House of Delegates meeting this month in Tarrytown. She is only the second woman elected to two terms in the post, according to the medical society. In private practice for more than 30 years, Geraci-Ciardullo is on staff at NewYorkPresbyterian Hospital, Westchester Medical Center, Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital and White Plains Hospital, where she recently completed a five-year term as chief of allergy. She holds academic positions at both Weill Medical College of Cornell University and

New York Medical College. Geraci-Ciardullo earned her medical degree from the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and received her residency training in pediatrics at New York Hospital, where she then completed a twoyear fellowship in allergy/immunology. She earned a master’s degree in public health from the New York Medical College School of Public Health. In addition to her work for the state medical society, Geraci-Ciardullo has served as president of the Westchester County Medical Society, the Westchester Academy of Medicine and the Westchester Allergy Society. She has been part of the state medical society’s American Medical Association delegation for 11 years and serves on the AMA Council on Science and Public Health. Geraci-Ciardullo’s husband, plastic surgeon Robert Ciardullo, is also an active member of the Medical Society of the State of New York and served as a delegate to its recent annual meeting in Westchester. —Kevin Zimmerman and John Golden

indicated they plan to continue offering coverage through the exchange at least through next year. In a move unrelated to UHC’s, MetLife will be exiting Access Health’s Small Business Exchange (SHOP) by the end of 2016 due to limited enrollment. “This will not affect current policy holders, whose service will remain unchanged for the duration of their plans,” said company spokeswoman Kim Friedman. “Off the exchange, MetLife will continue to offer a stand-alone dental plan in Connecticut that has been certified by Access Health as an Affordable Care Act-compliant stand-alone dental plan.” As of April 11, United Healthcare had 1,477 Connecticut enrollees, representing 1.3 per-

cent of AHCT’s total enrollment. Sixty-one percent of those enrollees live in Fairfield County. In the small business market, United Healthcare had 18 employers representing 124 residents. Relatively small figures, then, but some observers said their putative numerical insignificance has been overstated by others. “A lot of press reports have taken the view that ‘this is just one insurance company,’” said Robert Laszewski, president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, Inc., a policy and marketplace consulting firm. “That’s true — but it’s sitting on top of all the others who are losing their shirts. “If the largest and most successful insurance company in the United States is not finding the Obamacare insurance exchange tenable,” he added, “that raises a lot of alarm bells.”

Laszewski noted that UHC’s move comes not just after its January announcement of nearly $1 billion in losses but also a report by global consulting firm McKinsey & Company stating that in 2014, insurers lost money in 41 states in the individual insurance market. “Just because United Healthcare is pulling out is, in and of itself, not a huge deal,” said Seth J. Chandler, a professor at the University of Houston Law Center who has taught life and health insurance law for a number of years and served as a co-director of the Health Law & Policy Institute. “But if something like Blue Cross pulls out, it will be. “But that kind of misses the point,” he continued. “This is a symptom of a much more fundamental, pervasive problem — that the insurers are losing a lot of money.”

Indeed, the “affordable” part of the Affordable Care Act — long a point of debate — has come under greater scrutiny in the wake of a report in March by Blue Cross Blue Shield. According to that insurer, recent enrollees in the state marketplace plans used up “significantly more medical services in their first year of coverage”; as a result, the costs associated with medical services for marketplace enrollees were 22 percent higher than those for other types of enrollees. Chandler, whose feelings about Obamacare are made plain by the name of his blog, “ACA Death Spiral,” said that without major amendments — or an entirely new system put in place to replace it — the Affordable Care Act will end up “pretty catastrophically” for carriers and individuals alike. “I think you’ll see other carriers get out” of the exchanges in the wake of United, he said. “But even if they stay in, what does it mean? At what price to consumers? They could raise rates by 25 to 30 percent.” He went on to predict that, if left unaddressed, most consumers would no longer be able to afford “Gold” health insurance plans (where the carrier typically pays 80 percent of costs) or even “Silver” (where the carrier pays 70 percent) but would be faced with paying for “Bronze” HMO plans at much higher rates than they do now. In Laszewski’s view, United’s move means that Obamacare is “unsustainable.” As a result of carriers’ skyrocketing rate increases to try to return to profitability, he said that he expects “an enormous amount of lobbying to get [the system] fixed. You’ve got to believe that it’s going to get fixed, because it has to be fixed.” Meanwhile, non-AHCT giants Aetna and Anthem are unlikely to join UHC’s exodus. Although Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini expressed “serious concerns about the sustainability of the public exchanges” in February, Aetna and Anthem have both said they remain committed to the exchanges. Then again, both companies are awaiting federal approval of proposed mergers: Anthem has proposed a $52.5 billion takeover of Cigna, while Aetna has proposed a $38.5 billion merger with Humana. “I don’t expect them to go anywhere or rock any boats,” said Laszewski. As for the AHCT’s future, time will tell. One of its three remaining carriers, HealthyCT — a Wallingford-based co-operative that is sponsored by doctors and governed by members — lost $28 million in 2014 and well over $10 million last year, though CEO Ken Lalime has said he does not expect to turn a profit until 2017. AHCT’s next open enrollment period begins Nov. 1 and runs through Jan. 31, 2017.

onnecticut may not be considered the best state in the union for business, but at least one New York City company owner has decided to call it home. Steve Gottesman, owner and founder of Opportunity Buying based in the Bronx, recently confirmed the company will be moving its operations this spring to an industrial building on Great Pasture Road after more than 25 years of operating out of New York City. Gottesman, who lives in Westchester County, said he often visits the Danbury area during the weekends, including shopping trips to the Danbury Fair mall. When it was time for an expansion, he said, Danbury was the perfect location. “Connecticut may not be the first go-to location for everyone, but we really love Danbury and the surrounding area,” he said. “The area will offer us some good opportunities for new hires as we continue our growth, and we also like the services that are available

in the surrounding area. The suburban and country feel the Danbury area offers is also really appealing to me. It makes going to work every day kind of pleasant.” According to Cushman & Wakefield, the company recently signed a 10-year lease for about 56,000 square feet of warehouse and office space on Great Pasture Road.

Rebranding — » » From page 16

Group as Norwalk has more attractions than can be captured in a single catchphrase, he said. “There are a lot of cities nationally that can hang their hat on maritime and waterfront and we were not going to be another Mystic, because we are not another Mystic,” he said. “We have more to offer.” “We solved the problem by making the slogan, the ‘Sound of Connecticut’, playing off Long Island Sound, but also having all the support materials and media play off of that – the sound of education, entertainment, dining, business, success, discovery,” he said. “This gave us an opportunity to extend all

those different offerings and benefits that Norwalk has and sets us apart.” It was by no means an easy task, Esposito said. From the beginning, challenges faced the Zunda Group. With clients such as Barbasol, Newman’s Own and Chobani, Zunda’s core competency is in rebranding consumer good products and it has never worked on a municipality-sized project such as with Norwalk. One of the first questions raised in the competitive bidding process to select the city’s new marketing company was why the Zunda Group should be trusted with the rebranding having no experience with similar projects. “My response was about five or seven years ago no one knew what Greek yogurt

was and the founder of Chobani came to us and said I need a package,” Esposito said. “Our job is to take the unknown and make it known – make it understood. We launched Chobani and what happened is he is the number one selling brand and now Greek yogurt is a category.” While Esposito believes the rebranding has been a success, the company’s work with the city isn’t done, he said. The 35-year-old company has been in the city for the last 20 years, and following the launch of the city’s new brand, has signed on to remain as a consultant with the city to advise the rebranding as it continues. “We are attached to this town and this project more than on just a business level,” he said. “I feel more connected to Norwalk now more than ever.”

Nonprofit changes leadership BY REECE ALVAREZ

T

ralvarez@westfairinc.com

he Stamford-based Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT) has announced a shift in leadership with co-founder and president Barbara Netter handing over the organization’s reins to John Walter, former CEO of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. “I am thrilled to be coming on board to lead the vision and direction of ACGT,” Walter said. “ACGT’s focus in cell, gene and immunotherapy for uncovering treatments for all cancer, as well as the remarkable people that make up the board and scientific advisory council, were major considerations as to why I came on board. This is truly an incredible time to be working in cancer research with significant breakthroughs on the way for patients.” In his previous work with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Walter held several executive positions over 18 years with the organization in addition to prior experience as the director of financial planning and budgeting for the March of Dimes. Netter co-founded ACGT with her husband, Edward, in 2001 after their daughterin-law’s death from breast cancer. Edward Netter died in 2011. They were inspired to create the nation’s only nonprofit dedicated to cell and gene therapies after attending a lecture on gene therapy by Savio Woo, chairman of the Department of Gene and Cell Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital. The doctor went on to chair ACGT’s scientific advisory council and held that position for 14 years before retiring in 2015. Under the Netters’ leadership the alliance has funded dozens of scientific grants in the U.S. and Canada to conduct and accelerate innovative cancer research totaling $26.4 million in funding. This funding contributed to breakthrough cancer research on successfully treating leukemia through gene therapy that was pioneered by Carl June at the University of Pennsylvania and Michel Sadelain at Memorial Sloan Kettering. According to the Alliance, Netter hopes Walter will move the alliance to the next level of scientific funding of cancer research and possibly develop pivotal partnerships with important biotech companies that are now taking notice of cell, gene and immunotherapy treatments for cancer.

Tax policy in flux for U.S. corporations BY BILL HELTZEL

E

bheltzel@westfairinc.com

ventually, Main Street USA feels the repercussions of corporate tax avoidance practices, but lately those effects have become more uncertain. “Taxes are reflective of our lives, our politics and real economic realities,” said Helen Mangano, a securities and finance lawyer in Bronxville. While there is broad agreement that tax avoidance strategies are harming the economy, political gridlock in Washington has stalled efforts to address the problems. The consequences can be seen with Pfizer Inc., the New York City-based pharmaceutical company that produces vaccines and operates a large research and development center in Pearl River in Rockland County. Pfizer was in the process of acquiring Allergan Plc, a drug maker based in Dublin, Ireland, for $152 billion. That merger collapsed after the U.S. Treasury issued regulations on April 4 that made the transaction unattractive. The Pfizer-Allergan deal would have been the biggest ever tax inversion, a controversial but legal technique that corporations use to lower their tax bills. Pfizer’s plan was to reincorporate in Ireland, essentially relinquishing its U.S. “citizenship.” Individuals who give up citizenship still have to pay U.S. taxes for ten years, Mangano said. Not so with corporations. In the typical inversion, the corporation takes advantage of a lower foreign tax rate by establishing its home abroad, on paper, while continuing to manage and control the company from the U.S. Inversions often use a related strategy called “earnings stripping.” The foreign-controlled corporation loans money to its U.S. subsidiary for operational expenses. Interest payments are deducted from overall earnings and are not taxable. The U.S. taxes American corporation profits wherever they are earned in the world. But the foreign earnings are not taxed until they are returned to the U.S. So American corporations are holding more than a trillion dollars in earnings off-

shore, to delay or avoid paying U.S. taxes. The Treasury issued a temporary rule making it harder for an American company to reincorporate abroad. It also proposed a rule that would classify foreign loans to American subsidiaries as equity instead of debt, removing the tax deduction. “Predictably, Washington is trying to address symptoms without really dealing with the serious underlying issue,” said Ralph Kessler, a corporate and securities lawyer for Hinman, Howard & Kattell Attorneys in White Plains, and an adjunct professor at Hagen School of Business at Iona College. “U.S. tax policy is out of synch and not competitive with the rest of the world,” he said. The top corporate tax rate in the U.S. is 35 percent. The average tax rate among developed countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, excluding the U.S., is about 29 percent. Ireland’s corporate rate is 12.5 percent. Critics of the high tax rate say it distorts corporate investment decisions. Foreign corporations are less likely to invest in the U.S. American corporations are more likely to invest overseas. The Treasury and state governments get less tax revenue. If corporations could bring back foreign earnings at a lower tax rate, Kessler said, “they could expand here, there would be more jobs and the economy would grow faster.” Treasury was right to curtail inversions, said Philip G. Cohen, a retired vice president of tax at Unilever United States, and an associate professor of taxation at Pace University Lubin School of Business. Congress has failed to act, he said, and the government had to send a message to stop an abusive tax avoidance practice. He said the high corporate tax not only hurts U.S. companies with global operations, it burdens smaller U.S. companies that don’t have foreign operations to use for tax avoidance techniques. The proposed rule that would treat a company’s foreign debt as equity goes too far, he said. But putting an end to taxation of foreign earnings of American corporations, as some reformers have advocated,

would encourage companies to move jobs and investments outside of the U.S. “If Singapore decides to offer a tax holiday,” Cohen asked, “why would you put up an R&D facility in Tarrytown?” “I want to encourage investments in the U.S. I want to make the U.S. business friendly, while at the same time curtailing abuses.” The Treasury rules have been characterized as stopgap measures to slow down the pace of inversions. There is widespread agreement that comprehensive tax reform is needed. Cohen said the tax base should be broad-

FCBJ

ened and the statutory rates lowered. But he has written elsewhere that there is little appetite in the current Congress to change a tax system that opens the campaign donation spigot. Maybe next year, if a Democrat is elected president and Democrats control the Senate, a reform bill can be negotiated with a Republican House. Kessler said neither Democrats nor Republicans can vote for something that helps big business in this election year. After the election, he thinks the two parties might be able to work on tax reform. “That’s politics,” he said.

eneral Electric’s exit from the banking business is complete, with the company finalizing the sale of GE Capital Bank’s U.S. deposits to Goldman Sachs. GE Capital Bank is now called GS Bank. The deal, approved by federal regulators in March, includes GE Capital transferring $16 billion in online deposits to Goldman’s GS Bank USA. With the completion of the sale, Goldman – the investment banking firm often criticized for its role in the 2008 economic crisis, in part because it posted record profits in 2009 on the heels of the federal bailout – is in the midst of trying to partially reinvent itself by moving focus away from its traditional customer base of institutions and toward individuals. As of April 18, GS Bank was allowing individuals to make online deposits to savings accounts of as little as $1, as compared with the $10 million minimum it reportedly requires for large companies. GE’s exit from the banking marketplace is looking particularly well timed in the face of Goldman’s first-quarter results, which showed revenue at $6.34 billion – compared with $10.62 billion for the first quarter of 2015. The figures mark Goldman’s fourth straight quarter of profit declines. The investment banking firm is taking the great leap into online deposits in its increasing efforts to attract consumers in addition to its core business. “This transaction increases the funding diversification and strengthens the liquidity profile of Goldman Sachs and GS Bank,” said Robin Vince, treasurer of The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. “We are pleased to add the capability for accepting online deposits, a strategic priority for the firm and for GS Bank.” GS Bank, chartered in New York state, in addition to assuming $16 billion of deposits, also picked up approximately 140,000 retail customers. The company’s new website, gsbank.com, currently offers online savings accounts (with rates of 1.05 percent APY) and certificates of deposits with terms from six months to six years. Besides trying to attract consumers, the website is also looking to draw small businesses – a group that previously had been

fairly anathema to the Wall Street titan. A video on the home page promotes its “10,000 Small Businesses” program, which it says “provides access to education, capital and business support.” Online calculators and in-house articles offering tips and other investing information are also available. “We are committed to providing our new online deposit customers the high level of service they have come to expect,” said Esta Stecher, GS Bank CEO. “GS Bank will continue to offer smart, simple savings products backed by the skilled and knowledgeable team joining us from GE Capital Bank.” For all the bright talk, Goldman Sachs itself has been taking financial hits for the past several quarters, with CFO Harvey Schwartz fielding sometimes sharp questions from analysts and investors in the wake of the company’s release of its disappointing first-quarter results. The quarter’s revenues of $6.34 billion were reportedly the lowest for any first quarter since CEO Lloyd Blankfein took charge in 2006. Schwartz told the group that Goldman remains committed to being flexible in its approach to a fast-changing landscape. “If we felt like there is a client segment or transaction we could do that would benefit our shareholders and we could deliver to those clients, we would do it,” he said. “We’re open-minded.” Meanwhile, last month GE – in the midst of relocating from Fairfield to Boston  – announced that it was selling its GE Asset Management division in Stamford to Bostonbased asset management firm State Street Corp. for a reported $485 million. State Street has indicated the office’s 275 employees will remain in Stamford. In yet another deal with potential regional implications, Wells Fargo – which in March completed the purchase of the North American portions of GE Capital’s Commercial Distribution Finance and Vendor Finance businesses as well as a portion of its Corporate Finance business, totaling $27.4 billion of assets – reportedly plans to move those employees into Danbury’s Lee Farm Corporate Park. Calls to confirm that report to Fairfieldbased Summit Development, which co-owns the property, went unreturned. A Wells Fargo spokeswoman would say only that “At this time, we cannot comment on this matter.”

THE FLEMING REPORT

BY DEVON FLEMING

M&A outlook and trends in 2016

I

n my last article, I reported on the record high level of activity in mergers and acquisitions in 2015, focusing on deals valued at $50 million or more. That activity was a function of low interest rates, economic stability, a stronger stock market and balance sheets, demographics and overall growth acquisition strategies. We are seeing some of the same factors in early 2016 as well. In general, the outlook for the year looks strong and companies are on a mission to grow. Many industries are incorporating M&A into their strategy as a growth vehicle, particularly in those industries

where disruption is a good thing. The key drivers for this positive outlook in M&A growth are an environment of  prolonged low interest rates and low inflation. These key economic factors are causing many industries to continue consolidating, which  serves to reduce excess capacity and increase profitability, which results from economies of scale and scope. Since 2008 and the Great Recession, we have been in a period of slow economic growth, low inf lation, minimal wage growth and overcapacity. While last year saw improvements in the economy,

a strong stock market and better corporate balance sheets, corporations are still struggling to grow their top lines and many have improved by becoming more efficient, thus improving their bottom line. While periods of a growing and robust economy are reflected in an increase in inflation — prices of goods and services rise with time — during times of low or no inflation, the economy is flat and interest rates tend to stay low. Low rates, while bad for investors, are good for those who wish to borrow money, which circles us back to why M&A grows. Acquisitions become a good alterna-

tive to organic growth, particularly when financing is inexpensive. With cheaper financing, due to low rates and low inflation, M&A is expected to continue to grow, and with some buyers — private equity groups — demand has even become pent up. There is more than $1 trillion in “dry powder,” money ready, willing and eager to be put to work, by private equity managers who are required to buy privately held firms with growth potential in order to generate return on investment promised to their investors. On the sell side, you have similar growth issues driven by low rates and low inflation, and sellers are interested in the strategic partnership offered by a larger acquirer. They are finding similar interest in inorganic growth by seeking to be acquired, which offers access to additional resources and other growth potential. In addition, demographics play a part in M&A deals. With baby boomers looking to retire, there is more demand on the sell side as well. Depending on the industry, one can draw additional conclusions which all point toward additional growth in deals. Acquisitions have been motivated by add-ons to existing portfolio companies and customer base and other acquisitions are driven to capture changing customer behaviors, new geographical and demographic areas, increased delivery platforms with technology or innovations. As all industries seek to gain access to the latest technological advances, tech companies continue to create the most investment opportunities for both buyers and sellers. For those feeling less positive, there are always exceptions, such as in the energy sector where pre-stage M&A activity suggests lower deal activity. Additionally, there are other factors that could point to a slowing in growth throughout the year. Many sellers believe that the M&A market has peaked and many buyers have concerns with valuation. While the large amount of private equity dry powder is good for sellers, it has flooded the buyer pool and in general, there are an ever increasing number of players in the deal making industry.

HEALING THROUGH THE ARTS

Orange Regional Medical Center’s volunteers with the Art Cart.

Orange Regional Medical Center in Middletown launched a program to promote healing through arts activities. The

Art Cart, a mobile activity center, was designed as a creative resource to bring recreational enrichment to patients at their bedside while reducing the stress and anxiety often associated with health care settings. Research has shown that active arts participation helps people of all ages improve their health and emotional well-being. Collaboratively developed with the hospital’s art program, child life program and volunteer services, the Art Cart is operated by trained volunteers, many of whom have a background in child life practice, as professional artists or as art teachers and bring different creative skills to the program. For additional information about the Art Program, visit ormc.org/art.

White Plains Mayor Thomas Roach presented the 20 volunteers with certificates of appreciation on behalf of the city during the event. Nearly 500 volunteers ranging in age from 14 to over 90 donate approximately 55,000 hours of service annually in such areas as the hospital boutique, routine health screenings, information desk, patient ambassador roles, caregiver support and pet therapy.

Many also serve on various committees and fundraising initiatives, providing valuable insight, feedback and ideas that contribute to the hospital’s success. “We are fortunate to have volunteers who have been with us for more than 50 years, as well as young students just starting out who are gaining exposure to careers in health care,” said Roseanne Braiotta, director of ancillary services and volunteers at White Plains Hospital.  “Our volunteers, no matter what their roles are in the hospital, contribute a great deal and make our patients and visitors feel special and cared for.”

ENTERGY SPARKS PARKS WITH GRANT

‘WELCOME TO MY HAUS’

Entergy presented Friends of Westchester County Parks with a $57,500 grant to add solar power capabilities to the Croton Point Park office, add two rain gardens at the park and educate the community about solar power and storm water management. “With increased development and impervious surface throughout Westchester County, storm water management has become a concern of every municipality and sewer district,” said Joe Stout, executive director of Friends of Westchester County Parks. “Many munic-

Sullivan County’s musical duo LuxRd. presents the premiere of its theatrical song cycle “Welcome to my Haus” on April 30 at the Tusten Theater in Narrowsburg at 7 p.m. with an after party at The Emerald Ballroom featuring music by DJ LaViolette.

The relatively new practice of creating rain gardens can fulfill this need while providing environmental benefits and aesthetically pleasing landscaping. So, we are so thankful that Entergy is helping us with this initiative.” Croton Point Park in Croton was once the site of a landfill, which was operated by county government from 1927 to 1986. The landfill has since been capped off and restored to green space.

kill, will be the featured speaker at the event. Now a sophomore in high school, Vargas was diagnosed at 13 with a rare blood cancer and required a bone marrow transplant. His sister Elena, now 13, donated her bone marrow to save his life.  “Our whole lives were changed,” said their mother, Jennifer Vargas.  “Everything was happening so quickly and during this time, a social worker at the hospital reached out to Make-A-Wish.” Vargas said Ramiro always wanted to surf, from the time he was a little child watching surfers at his grandparents’ home in Myrtle Beach, S.C.  “He loved boogie-boarding and talked constantly about visiting Surfer’s Paradise in Australia.  He always said that place had the best waves in the world,” she said. When the family received the news that Ramiro’s wish to visit Surfer’s Paradise was going to come true, he started practice surfing on his skateboard. Last March, the family went to Australia, and not only did Ramiro take surfing lessons, but he also had the opportunity to visit Dreamworld, Australia’s largest theme park, and hold a koala bear at the Australia Zoo.  “This could have never happened without Make-A-Wish and their donors,” said Vargas.  “Our association has been involved with this wonderful organization for many years and we are delighted to be able to help make a difference in the lives of children like Ramiro who are living in our area,” said Richard Haggerty, HGAR CEO.

From left, Jonathan Hill, interim dean of Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems; Mamaroneck teacher Jigar Jadav; student Sam Blumberg; student Max Bobby; and County Executive Robert P. Astorino.

A team from Mamaroneck High School took home top honors at the recent second annual #WestchesterSmart Mobile App Development Bowl where more than 250 students competed at Pace University’s Pleasantville campus to see which team of the competing teams had developed the best mobile application after weeks of design and development. In all, teams from eight high schools and colleges took home cash awards. Presented by County Executive Rob Astorino and Pace’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems, the competition challenged stu-

dents to create an app that will improve the quality of life for people age 65 and older. Ideas ranged from health and memory to finance and money. The winning team – The Rock Club from Mamaroneck High School – created an app that serves as a “one stop shop” for seniors to resolve technical issues. After interviewing seniors regarding their most common issues with technology, the team found that most fit into three broad categories: problems with vision, problems with hearing and problems with dexterity. The completed apps will be available for download via the Apple Store and/or the Google Play Store.
