William P. Harrington to Serve as Chairman of Two Merged Organizations: Westchester County Association and Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation
Bleakley Platt Chairman William P. Harrington, who currently serves as chairman of the Westchester County Association, will become chairman of a new regional organization created by the merger of the Westchester County Association and the Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation.
News of the merger was reported on Westfair Online in an article titled “Going regional: Westchester County Association and HVEDC plan merger.”
A strategic partnership had been announced by the two organizations in October, which then led to discussions about a merger. Details of the merger are still in process, as is the name of the organization.
The combined organizations will have more power to advocate on behalf of businesses and build a stronger business climate throughout the region.
