Saad Siddiqui, a member of the BCW Rising Star Class of 2017 and a White Plains resident, was recently named as the Fair Housing Director for the Westchester County Human Rights Commission.
Siddiqui is a partner and co-founder of the law firm of Ferrante & Siddiqui LLP in White Plains and focuses his practice on criminal and immigration law.
“Saad brings a wealth of knowledge and legal experience, both in government and private practice, to this important position,” said Westchester County Executive George Latimer of Siddiqui’s appointment. “In Westchester, we don’t tolerate discrimination of any kind – especially during the already difficult process of finding housing.”
Marsha Gordon, President and CEO of the Business Council of Westchester, congratulated Siddiqui.
“As a BCW Rising Star, we are not surprised that he has been named to this prestigious post by Westchester County. We wish him the best of luck and see this as the beginning of bigger and better things.’’
