BCW’s highly informative and insightful series featuring the area’s top business leaders continues next month with Sergio Fuster, President, USA Yogurt, Danone, as the featured speaker at the People’s United Bank Leadership Conversation Series. The program will be held May 2 from 4:30 – 6:30 pm at the Castle Hotel & Spa in Tarrytown.
Danone, which is the nation’s leading maker of yogurt, recently announced plans to move its offices and accessory food laboratory from its current location to a former retail space at 100 Bloomingdale Road in downtown White Plains. More than 400 Danone employees will be working at the new location. In making the move, the company cited the importance to its workforce of having easy access to restaurants, shopping and mass transit.
“We are very pleased to have Sergio Fuster as the featured speaker for our next Conversations Series program. We look forward to hearing about Danone’s decision to move to downtown White Plains and its plans for future growth in Westchester County,” said BCW President and CEO Marsha Gordon. “Danone’s move to downtown White Plains is indicative of the tremendous growth we are seeing in the county’s urban centers, a phenomenon that is the focus of a year-long initiative by the Business Council of Westchester,” she added.
