Westfair Business Publications (Westfair), a privately held publishing firm located in White Plains, N.Y., publishes weekly business newspapers: the Westchester County Business Journal in combination with HV Biz (Hudson Valley Business) in New York state and the Fairfield County Business Journal in Connecticut.
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 former Westchester resident David Moore, a grandson of celebrated New York publisher Joseph Pulitzer, and John Smith, a former Wall Street Journal editor.
In keeping with its founders’ principles, the newspapers focus on the local and regional business community with news and information that are helpful to business people. Their profiles on entrepreneurs and professionals are inspirational to readers and their record sections provide vital statistics for people expanding or searching for business leads. The papers have gained credibility and respect in the counties for their information, integrity, relevance and usefulness to readers. The staff’s familiarity with, and involvement in the region, provide a responsiveness to readers and clients that have contributed greatly to the newspapers’ loyal following and success.
With a weekly readership of more than 150,000, Westfair’s business publications reach business leaders and decision makers in seven counties (Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess and Ulster in New York state, 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 website westfaironline.com, provide up-to-date news and information on issues important and pertinent to the regional business marketplace.
Westfair also sponsors seminars, expos, conferences, roundtable discussions and debates, and the popular 40 Under 40 competition. With a 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.
