Tom Nardacci was pleased to attend the NY Open for Business Statewide Conference at the Empire State Plaza in Albany today. New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the state has entered into agreements providing for investments valued at $4.4 billion over the next five years from leading international companies including Intel, IBM, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, TSMC and Samsung.
At noon, former President Bill Clinton spoke. From the Times Union, “Clinton said government is not the problem. He said a strong economy requires an effective government that will ‘ask the right questions’ about using local assets to invigorate business.”

We are pleased to announce that Tom Nardacci, founder & principal of Gramercy Communications, has been appointed by Governor Andrew Cuomo to serve as a member of the New York State Heritage Areas Advisory Council.
The New York State Heritage Areas Advisory Council advises the Governor, the Legislature, and the Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation on state heritage area policies and programs aimed to develop, preserve, and promote the state’s historic, cultural and natural resources.
New York State has twenty designated Heritage Areas, a system of state-local partnerships established to preserve and develop areas that have special significance. From the Great Lakes, all across Upstate, to the eastern tip of Long Island, the Heritage Areas encompass some of the New York’s most significant resources.
We wanted to share with you the recent ad we placed in the New York Real Estate Journal. The edition focused on activities in Upstate New York. It’s actually pretty impressive how much is happening around New York given the sluggish national economy.
One of Gramercy’s strongest niches is in providing public relations and strategic communications counsel in the field of economic development. Our roster of clients has over $3 billion in active economic development projects in New York State. Our experience runs the gamut from healthcare to energy to manufacturing to high tech to tourism to retail and restaurants. We work with our clients to build and maintain credibility for them and their projects.
We are encouraged by the pick-up of economic activity over the past year. I would expect that to continue to trend upward in New York State under the leadership and focus of Governor Cuomo and his economic team.
