The Connection Between Three Main Issues

A Message from Queens Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Thomas Grech

The primary reasons Queens has become a banking hotspot is because people want to work, live and play in Queens County. While this issue focuses on the banking sector, I am equally thrilled to detail our May 17th Business Expo at Citi Field.
This years’ breakfast topic focused on the intersection of healthcare, transportation and manufacturing, entitled “Queens: The new New York Destination.” As the largest employment segment in Queens, we firmly believe that healthcare will be a driving force for not only the jobs of the future, but also the need for a greater transportation network for both patients and employees.
Further, the resurgence in local Queens manufacturing also fuels the need for qualified employees and their employers to have access to a dependable transportation infrastructure to move raw materials, finished goods and employees.
The breakfast panel was held in the auditorium at Citi Field. This part of our day ran from 8 to 10 a.m. We were honored to have John Catsimatidis kick off the panel discussion on the importance of these three segments to Queens County. There will be Q&A, as well as questions and comments from the audience.
Our Breakfast Panel consisted of the following experts and leaders in Queens:
Caryn Schwab, Mt Sinai Health System
Susan Browning, Northwell Health
Ya Ting Liu, BQX
Elana Ehrenberg, NYC Ferry
Charles Boyce, Boyce Technologies
Gulriz Anil, Brooks Brothers
Paula Kirby, Plaxall Corporation
