Under his leadership, Crain's New York Business was the only regional business publication to win the prestigious Gerald Loeb Award, which it did twice for stories on the demise of electronics retailer Crazy Eddie and the impact of AIDS on the fashion industry. A third story, "Nonprofits: New York's New Tammany Hall," was a Loeb finalist. The paper also was a repeat winner of the general excellence award of the Alliance of Area Business Publications and the Society of American Business Editors and Writers.

Time is always allotted at the end of the formal presentation for a spirited Q & A session, during which we welcome the expression of alternative viewpoints.
