It was five years ago this week that my wife Anne and I were ordering a moving van and preparing to leave good jobs in New York City to settle back in the Capital Region. While there are some things we miss about the city, we have found that being back home is a more than fair trade.
At the time we moved and I launched my new business, my plan for Gramercy Communications was seemingly straightforward. However, like many people who start and build businesses, my journey has been a little varied from when I initially put pen to paper.
I am proud to say that Gramercy Communications is making a real impact. In reviewing the past five years and developing a plan to continue to strengthen our business, I took note of one exciting way in which Gramercy Communications has far exceeded my initial expectations:
Our current clients have over $1 billion in active economic development projects in New York State.
During the worst economic environment in decades, and with the unsettled political climate in New York, we have found a diverse portfolio of clients — from high technology, to energy, to manufacturing — that are still actively pushing forward. Our media relations, marketing, and community affairs efforts have been integral to the success of these clients’ projects.
There are a number of indicators that define the success of a business. If Gramercy Communications can have a hand in another $1 billion worth of economic investment in New York State over the next five years, I’d be satisfied.
