Austin Stonitsch – Dime Community Bank

In some ways, the February merger of BNB Bank and Dime Community Bank in the metropolitan New York area is a case of the more things change, the more they stay the same. Completed on Feb. 1, 2021, the merger combines banks that are well over 100 years old and, crucially, retains the community feel […]

Tobi Russell – Public Consulting Group

In 2018, Public Consulting recognized that its approach to “human capital” would no longer be what the company needed to recruit and retain talent. To grow, the company hired Tobi Russell to help develop a “human capital roadmap,” which detailed a new approach to staying competitive and becoming an employer of choice. This past summer, […]

Ryan Bartley – Catamount Financial Advisors

It’s a near-certainty for business owners: at some point, they will need to part with their business. While most business owners are aware of this, few have the foresight to plan ahead, an oversight that could cost them a lot of money in the long run, according to Ryan Bartley. That’s why, as the senior vice president of investments […]

Jody Sirianni – Synacor Inc.

When Jody Sirianni joined Synacor in May 2019 as its vice president of global HR, she was struck by the differences between the company and more traditional ones. “I had never worked in tech before and we’re really laid back,” Sirianni says. “There’s no dress code, we have 25-cent vending machines and events we try […]

John Iammatteo – Samaritan Daytop Village, Inc.

It couldn’t be opening soon enough. In September, The Richard Pruss Wellness Center will consolidate and expand the services of several Samaritan Daytop Village programs in one neighborhood. Samaritan is one of the largest health and human service agencies in New York State. “Last year the United States set a record for overdose deaths,” notes […]

Louis Terry – BAE Systems Inc.

Picture a room full of engineers and U.S. government stakeholders—the vanguard of the country’s nuclear deterrent program—discussing how to best evaluate and upgrade critical equipment. Within a few moments, they enter a mixed reality environment where they can see system requirements and digital models up close—all on a single collaborative digital screen. Or a field […]

Diana Ortega – General Motors

At the GM Lansing Delta plant in Delta Township, Michigan, more than 3,000 employees are working together to build thousands of Buick Enclaves and Chevrolet Traverses, move them off the line and to dealer lots throughout the country. These are massive undertakings, entailing millions in research and development—requiring a microscopic eye for detail from all […]

Abraham Ronai – Getinge

You want to be a strong collaborator and part of a high-functioning team? Check your ego at the door, readily take on secondary roles, rely on other people’s subject matter expertise, and be willing to stand back to celebrate successes that aren’t yours—even if you contributed to them in some way. This is Abraham Ronai’s […]

Debbie Walters-Francique – Pfizer

During her 19 years with global pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, Debbie Walters-Francique has seen enough change to fill a Coinstar machine: shifts in medical technology; evolution within the company; heaving changes in the wider health care landscape. And she’s had the roles to show for it: from serving as global product counsel on a blockbuster product […]

Arlen R. Shenkman – SAP

He had mergers and acquisitions down to if not a science, then an art—Arlen R. Shenkman having fronted a 150-member team for German-based multinational software heavyweight SAP. Each year, that team vetted 500 to 600 companies as potential acquisitions, though only a few made the cut, and those companies tended to fall under three general […]
