About Us

Westfair Business Publications (Westfair), a privately held publishing firm located in White Plains, NY, publishes three successful weekly local business newspapers: Westchester County Business Journal, Fairfield County Business Journal, and HV BIZ (Hudson Valley Business).

With the exception of HV BIZ, the Business Journals are nearly 50 years old and are the only weekly, countywide local business newspapers. They were founded by Westchester resident David Moore, a grandson of celebrated New York publisher Joseph Pulitzer, and John Smith, a former Wall Street Journal editor.

Since January 2007, HV BIZ has covered business news in Rockland, Dutchess, Putnam, Orange and Ulster counties. From the very start, HV Biz has been met with enormous praise for its inviting presentation and coverage of Hudson Valley’s exciting business growth. Business leaders and business organization heads have joined the HV BIZ’ advisory board because they believe that a weekly newspaper dedicated to their needs is more than just a welcome addition –– it provides them with a vital economic tool. It’s more than a newspaper covering local business news—it’s a publication with a mission to bring to its readers and the local, county and state officials a comprehensive view of the region’s economic vitality on a weekly basis.

In keeping with its founders’ principles, the newspapers focus only on the local business community with news and information that are helpful to business people and profiles on entrepreneurs and professionals, which are inspirational to readers. The papers have gained credibility and respect in the counties for their information, integrity, relevance and usefulness to readers. Newspaper management’s familiarity with and involvement in the region provides the responsiveness to readers’ needs that has contributed greatly to the newspapers’ loyal following and success.

With a weekly readership of about 160,000**, Westfair’s business publications reach business leaders and decision makers in seven counties (Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess and Ulster in New York, and Fairfield in Connecticut). As a premier source of business information on matters of concern and interest to the local mature market, Westfair business publications and its Web site, www.westfaironline.com, provide up-to-date news and information on issues important and pertinent to the business marketplace in the region.

Westfair’s bimonthly newspaper, Westchester Generations is published in cooperation with the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services and is mailed to more than 50,000 households in Westchester County.

Westfair also sponsors seminars, expos, conferences, roundtable discussions and debates, and the popular 40 Under 40 competition. With the staff of more than 30 industry professionals and several freelance writers and photographers and a highly informed insider network of business and community contacts in all the counties covered, Westfair brings timely business news and information in all its publications to its readers.
