The Putnam County Economic Development Corporation is hosting its 2014 Recognition Breakfast at the Putnam County Golf Course on Friday, September 26 at 8:30AM. The event will recognize two outstanding businesses in the county as well as feature former New York Governor George E. Pataki as keynote speaker. Putnam EDC President Meghan Taylor expressed her excitement at this annual business celebration: “We are honored to highlight the accomplishments of companies doing business within the County and look forward to connecting with many more!”
The Putnam County Economic Development Corporation works to drive the economic vitality of our county. It seeks to foster an environment conducive to the creation and retention of business,delivering an enhanced quality of life for all who reside here. Events such as the Breakfast, combined with strong partnerships such as those between the EDC and the Putnam County Chambers of Commerce, the Tourism bureau, and others, helps achieve this vision. Under Ms. Taylor’s leadership the EDC has worked hard to help business see the possibilities that a cohesive, strong local economy can do for Putnam in creating not only wealth but an even more pleasant living environment. We are indeed fortunate to live in a county that has such a balanced approach to planning for the future.
Putting on a major business event involves a lot of sponsor support, and the Recognition Breakfast is fortunate to have strong participation by its sponsors. Participants at the Gold level include Unicorn Contracting Corporation, Tompkins Mahopac Bank, and Putnam County Savings Bank, while the Silver Sponsors include Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union, Keane & Beane, P.C., the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters, and Putnam County Tourism.
