BCW Members Named to Governor’s Reopening New York Advisory Board

Governor Cuomo this week announced the creation of the New York Forward Re-Opening Advisory Board to help guide the state’s re-opening strategy. The advisory board will be chaired by Former Secretaries to the Governor Steve Cohen and Bill Mulrow and includes over 100 business, community and civic leaders from industries across the state including members of the Business Council of Westchester.

Congratulations to:

BCW Board Member Dr. Belinda S. Miles, President • SUNY Westchester Community College

Ayjay Banga, CEO • Mastercard

Maria Imperial, CEO • YWCA White Plains & Central Westchester

Scott Rechler, CEO & Chairman • RXR Realty

Leonard Schleifer, CEO • Regeneron Pharmaceuticals

As well as Heather Briccetti, President and CEO of the Business Council of New York State

And finally to the leadership of Altice, Con Edison, Fordham University, Madison Square Garden, M&T Bank, Verizon and Wegmans.

“We are incredibly proud that so many of our members have been tapped for this important responsibility,’’ said Marsha Gordon, President and CEO of the Business Council of Westchester. “We are certain that their expertise and their ability to think outside the box will be a tremendous asset to the advisory board as we face this monumental challenge.’’

Governor Cuomo outlined additional guidelines for the phased plan to re-open New York on a regional basis. Each region of the state – Capital Region, Central New York, Finger Lakes, Mid-Hudson Valley, Mohawk Valley, New York City, North Country, Long Island, Southern Tier and Western New York – must follow these guidelines.

“We’ve come up with a phased plan to re-open New York so every region in the state has the same opening template as we begin this process,” Governor Cuomo said. “We have to be smart about this – emotions can’t drive our re-opening process – and we’ve come up with factual data points that each region must monitor as they begin to re-open. We’ve also created a New York Forward Re-Opening Advisory Board made up of business, academic, community and civic leaders from across the state to help guide this process and ensure businesses are following the necessary guidelines to preserve public health as we work towards a new normal.”
