An executive briefing for senior New York City government officials hosted by Accenture and RCLA focused on Bloomberg Administration efforts to create jobs, undertake ambitious development projects, attract and retain industry, and develop services to help businesses cut through red tape, open their doors and hire workers.

The March 6 panel included: Robert LiMandri, Commissioner, Department of Buildings; Gail Mellow, President, LaGuardia Community College; Seth Pinsky, President, New York City Economic Development Corporation; Robert Walsh, Commissioner, Department of Small Business Services; and Joanna Weiss, Executive Director, New York City Business Acceleration.

The briefing was part of a quarterly series on leading large-scale change initiatives in the highly visible, volatile and political world of government.
