Howard Zemsky
Empire State Development

Howard Zemsky has co-chaired the Western New York Regional Economic Development Council during the past four years and has worked closely on the governor’s Buffalo Billion revitalization initiative. His company, Larkin Development Group, has redeveloped approximately 1.0 million square feet of historic building space in Buffalo since 2002, with a particular focus on reclaiming Buffalo’s earliest industrial neighborhood, the Larkin Historic District.

Empire State Development, or “ESD,” is the economic development agency of New York State. Zemsky and his colleagues manage a broad range of programs, incentives and services designed to increase private sector investment and job creation in New York.

Discussion Topics:
• Economic development goals of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s administration
