Westchester County Professionals Describe Local Businesses that Inspire Them

We ask Westchester professionals what county businesses inspire them



IBM
“From an environmental point of view, the work that they do is the absolute pinnacle of  best practices. They know the chemical composition of every item they purchase, down to the glue on an envelope.”
—Dani Glaser, CEO/Sustainability Consultant
Green Team Spirit (greenteamspirit.com) Croton-on-Hudson


Rothmans in Scarsdale
“They’ve utilized things like Groupons and social media as well as print media. Being in advertising, I appreciate that they’ve actually done a series of paintings by a famous illustrator on a lot of their communication pieces.”
—Dan Cultice, Owner, DC Graphics & Marketing Inc. (dcgny.com), Pleasantville

Yonkers Contracting Company, Inc.
“They inspire me because of all of the work they’re doing at Ground Zero. So much of their work is unnoticed, because they do all the foundation work. They’re not doing the stuff that’s glamorous and gets a lot of press, but they have a strong, quiet presence and I think that’s really important.”
—Maria Masciotti Executive Director
Westchester Italian Cultural Center (wiccny.org), Tuckahoe

Blue Hill Restaurants in Pocantico Hills and NYC
“They've really inspired the way we operate in that we are much more conscientious about our food selection process by basing it on local resources, sustainability, seasonality, and eco-friendly business practices." 
—Caroline Hay, General Manager/Director of Sales
Abigail Kirsch’s Tappan Hill Mansion (abigailkirsch.com), Tarrytown

Michael and Sons Nurseries, Inc. in White Plains
“For any type of planting, they’ll send me pictures from the farms in the Carolinas or wherever they’re getting their trees from. They’re not as big as the other guys, but they’re much more personalized.”
—Bill Livanos, Owner, Livanos Restaurant Group (abboccato.com)
