The Westchester County Association (WCA), Westchester’s most powerful economic development organization, held its 68th Fall Leadership Dinner on Tuesday, November 13, at the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown. More than 600 people attended the event, which honored business leaders in Westchester County.
The 2018 Leadership Award recipients were Susan Fox, President & CEO of White Plains Hospital, and Christopher Fisher, Esq., Managing Partner at Cuddy & Feder. Fox accepted the award while discussing the state of the healthcare industry in Westchester, and Fisher delivered an impassioned speech about the critical role that gigabit-speed broadband plays supporting the County’s continued economic growth.
Additionally, Frank McCullough, Esq., Senior Partner at McCullough, Goldberger & Staudt, LLP, was presented with the organization’s Alfred B. DelBello Visionary Leadership Award.
This year’s event celebrated William Mooney Jr.’s 14th and final WCA Fall Leadership Dinner as President & CEO, as Mooney recently announced he will step down from his position following a planned succession next year. Throughout the night, speakers, including Westchester County Executive George Latimer and Dee DelBello, Publisher of Westfair Communications , paid tribute to Mooney for his contributions to the economic growth of the county, and for his storied leadership over nearly half a century.
