C-Sweet!

You might work at a company for years and never meet the CEO; as a Lubin student, these executives are brought right into your classroom. This week, Lubin welcomes two Executives in Residence on both the NYC and PLV campuses.

Each year, chairs, CEOs, presidents, and other top executives visit Pace for a day and interact with students and faculty as part of Lubin’s Executive in Residence Program.

On Tuesday, April 10, Marsha Gordon, DPS ’06, President/CEO of Business Council of Westchester will discuss “Perspectives on Westchester’s Future: Strategies in Economic Development” from 10:10 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Kessel Campus Center on the PLV Campus.  

As leader of the county’s largest and fastest-growing business organization, Marsha Gordon brings more than 25 years of community, commerce, and leadership experience to the Business Council. Since taking the helm in 2001, she and her team have increased the organization’s membership from 500 to close to 1,000, many of whom credit Gordon’s skill at forging intra-membership relationships for helping their
businesses grow. A sought-after speaker, panelist, and media expert, Gordon is
widely considered the authority on economic development and business climate in
Westchester. In 2010, she founded the Westchester Coalition for Business Development to focus on retention and attraction of jobs in the county.

Recognized as a regional and statewide business leader, Marsha was asked in 2011 by Governor Cuomo to serve on his Mid-Hudson Regional Council–an initiative that brought $38 million dollars home to Westchester.
