Madden Institute at Le Moyne College Hosts Panel Discussion on U.S. Economy

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … The Madden Institute for Business Education at Le Moyne College will host a panel discussion on “Current and Future State of the U.S. Economy and the Outlook for Central New York” on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 5 p.m. The event takes place in the Panasci Family Chapel.

Panelists include: Anthony Dwyer ’87, commentator, CNBC, and chief equity strategist, Collins Stewart LLC; Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle ’77, 25th Congressional District of New York; and Robert M. Simpson, president, CenterState CEO.

Anthony Dwyer ’87 sits on the executive committee and is the director of equity research at Collins Stewart LLC, in addition to his role as strategist. He started his equity research career at Prudential-Bache Securities in 1987 and served as equity market strategist at a number of small regional brokers firms prior to joining FTN Equity Capital Markets in 2003. At FTN, Dwyer served as an equity market strategist and was a member of the FTN Midwest Securities Investment Committee. He was appointed to chair the IC in 2006.

Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle ’77 currently serves on the foreign affairs, veterans’ affairs, and oversight and government reform committees. She graduated from St. Joseph’s Hospital School of Nursing in 1972 and worked as a registered nurse in New York City’s Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. Buerkle earned a juris doctor degree from the Syracuse University College of Law in 1994 and went on to practice in a private law firm. In 1997, then Attorney General Dennis Vacco appointed her as an assistant New York state attorney general representing the state of New York on behalf of Upstate Medical University.

Robert Simpson, president and chief executive officer of CenterState CEO, also serves as executive director of the Central Upstate Regional Alliance and president of Syracuse’s business incubator, The Tech Garden. He previously served as president and chief executive officer of the Metropolitan Development Association of Syracuse and Central New York. Simpson was largely responsible for the strategic planning and implementation of the Essential New York Initiative - a comprehensive regional development strategy whose programs largely led to the framework for CenterState CEO’s core focus areas. He has also been a strong advocate of partnerships and coalition building to promote effective regional economic development, most notably through the creation of the Central Upstate Regional Alliance, with members representing business, academia, and economic development organizations from each of the twelve CenterState New York counties.

Preceding the panel discussion, there will be a special announcement about the future of business education at the College.
