Operating as a family business, NYCM was founded in 1899 by VanNess DeMar Robinson. Now in its fourth generation, the Robinson family continues to manage NYCM with President and CEO V. Daniel Robinson II at the helm. He is dedicated to providing the same service and security on which this company was built over 100 years ago. NYCM is a company woven into the fabric of Otsego County and prides itself on being a large employer that provides employees an engaging and enjoyable work environment, both professionally and personally, and, in addition, promotes health and wellness programs.
Remillard, known as a collaborative, visionary community leader in the Greater Oneonta area, recently retired as President and CEO of Fox Hospital. Barbara Ann Heegan, President & CEO of the Chamber stated “that the nominations for John Remillard described him as a leader that has led the hospital through a series of transformations which has ensured the vitality and sustainability of Fox and hence the quality of health care for our region.”
Oneonta Family YMCA is honored with the Quality of Life Award in recognition of the programs and services provided to residents of all ages to promote health and wellness throughout Otsego County since 1883. According to Executive Director Frank Russo, “The Y is not just a building. It’s a cause-driven organization built by the people, the staff, the community, the donors, the sponsors, the foundations and the volunteers. For example, in 2015 we celebrated 50 years at our Ford Ave facility and the leadership of W. Clyde Wright was a major influence in that success, and the Wright family is still a vital part of the team effort that makes great things happen.”
