Cuddy & Feder LLP is pleased to announce that managing partner, Christopher B. Fisher, will receive the Westchester County Association’s (WCA) Leadership Award at its 68th Annual Fall Leadership Dinner Nov. 13 at the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown.
Mr. Fisher is WCA’s Board Member leading the organization’s charge on broadband investment and new innovative technologies in Westchester. He was instrumental in launching the WCA’s Smart Growth Compact in late 2016 among the county’s four major cities – Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, White Plains and Yonkers – and jump starting WCA’s “Gigabit Initiative”.
As managing partner, Mr. Fisher concentrates his practice on telecommunications, land use, zoning, energy permitting and litigation. He is Chairman of the firm’s Telecommunications Group and a past Chairman of the firm’s Land Use, Zoning & Development Group, two of the largest infrastructure practices in New York and Connecticut.
“I am honored to be a WCA Leadership Award recipient and proud of the work we’ve done together to advance the Westchester community,” said Mr. Fisher. “Bold initiatives like the Smart Growth Compact and Gigabit Initiative are the reason Cuddy & Feder strongly supports the WCA. I’m excited to take the next steps at WCA with our partners to collaborate on 5G wireless technology, smart city solutions and digital equity for Westchester’s residents.”
Each year, over 650 members and friends of the WCA come together for a night to celebrate leadership in the community. The evening includes an extended networking reception, a ceremony to recognize the 2018 leadership award recipients, and a dessert reception at the end of the evening’s festivities.
