Duffy said, “It is a true honor to be recognized on this list with so many great leaders in New York State economic development. The future is bright because of the work these individuals are doing to provide equitable development for businesses and talent. Thank you to City & State NY for including me on the 2022 Economic Development Power 100, and to my team at Greater Rochester Chamber for all of their hard work to drive our goals. I also want to recognize Assembly Member Harry Bronson and Sujatha Ramanujan, managing director of Luminate Accelerator, for the great work they are doing in our region that earned them a spot on this list. This honor, along with our organization’s recent re-accreditation with five-star distinction from the U.S. Chamber, validates all of the hard work we put in day after day for businesses in our region and the people who live and work here.”
