New Guide Shows Why “Westchester Works”


The definitive guide to doing business in Westchester — The 2017 Westchester County Economic Development Guide — is hot off the presses. The 52-page guide, entitled “Westchester Works,” outlines the county’s key strengths while showcasing existing businesses — everything from Fortune 500 companies and global brands to technology startups and small businesses — that are growing and thriving.

“The Business Council of Westchester is proud to publish on behalf of the County Office of Economic Development this year’s Economic Development Guide. Whether you’re a major corporation or a new start-up business, this guide provides valuable and insightful information about the many benefits of doing business in Westchester,” said Marsha Gordon, president and CEO of The Business Council of Westchester.

“We have a talented workforce, affordable office space, great towns, parks and urban centers, and are easily accessible to New York City and the tristate area,” said County Executive Robert P. Astorino. “ ‘Westchester Works’ ” is a great resource and provides important information and insight into why Westchester is the ‘smart’ place to start, grow and expand a business.”

The economic development guide includes insight, profiles and testimonials from executives from Regeneron, Acorda Therapeutics, MasterCard, WESTMED, Heineken, PepsiCo and others. The guide contains a wealth of information for business executives, as well as residents who want to keep up with real estate, transportation and demographic trends in the county. The guide, which is also available digitally, includes case studies, statistics, resources and information on key industry sectors, such as biotech, healthcare, finance, aviation, real estate, retail and restaurants, among others

The guide was developed by Today Media in collaboration with the Westchester County Office of Economic Development and The Business Council of Westchester. Advertising sales paid for the production and there is no cost to county taxpayers.
