NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- More than 600 people from the Westchester business community saluted the winners at the Business Council of Westchester's 12th Annual Business Hall of Fame Awards.
The Awards were held at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle and broke records for attendance, sponsorship and fundraising, said Marsha Gordon, President and CEO of the Business Council.
“It’s our 12th year of having the Business Hall of Fame awards and this was the best one yet,” Gordon said. “The event was special for so many reasons, but mainly because it represents the best and brightest within Westchester’s proud business community.” This year's honorees are: Ruth H. Mahoney, president of Key Bank's Hudson Valley/Metro NY District with the Corporate Citizen Award; Patrick L. Vaccaro, managing partner of Jackson Lewis LLP with the Entrepreneurial Award; Christopher and Sean Murphy, Murphy Brothers Contracting Inc., with the Small Business Award; Glenn Pacchiana, president and CEO of Thalle Industries Inc. with the Family Business Award; and Judith Huntington, president and CEO of The College of New Rochelle with the Women in Business Award.
Since its inception, the Business Hall of Fame has inducted 60 business leaders. The names of this year's winners will be added to a plaque displayed at the Westchester County Airport.
