  • In a rousing keynote address, John Bassett III, the chairman of Vaughan-Bassett Furniture, thrilled the audience of 700 of Westchester's most influential business leaders at the WCA's annual Fall Leadership Dinner. Bassett described how he outfoxed Chinese manufacturers and broke through Washington gridlock to save his factory and the jobs of 700 Vaughan-Bassett employees...



    Several attendees remarked that this was "the best dinner ever that WCA has put together." The evening began with warm tributes to, and remarks by, our 2014 Leadership Honorees: Dr. Steven Safyer, chief executive officer, Montefiore Medical Center; Dr. Laura Forese, President, NewYork-Presbyterian Healthcare System; Robert Glazer, chief executive officer, ENT and Allergy Associates; and Bill Cuddy, executive vice president, CBRE. The evening also included a special tribute to Jon Schandler, the retiring CEO of White Plains Hospital.
