UB 2020 again, bank plans, hires...

From Business Today:

Each year the Buffalo Niagara business community produces a list of regional economic development projects that it believes will bring the most benefit to the region. For the past four years UB 2020, the plan to expand the University at Buffalo into a giant research university and allow the school to set its own tuition has been at the top of the list. UB is the greatest economic engine in the region, the thinking goes, so boosting it will bring benefits to the region. Too bad the state Legislature didn't agree. It failed to approve the plan this year.


The bankers at NewAlliance Bancshares in New England are going to see some changes when First Niagara takes over. If the takeover is approved by shareholders, First Niagara plans to move more people into positions where they interact with customers. The plan is to increase the retail banking operations. it seems to have worked in the other communities where First Niagara has bought banks.

See who is getting hired, promoted and honored...
