Area companies have been named to the list of the 50 Best Companies to Work for in New York State for 2013.

“Inclusion on this list is a testament to the strong culture we’ve built, with our employees focused on delivering an unparalleled level of service to our clients, and to each other,” said Philip Pecora, Genesee Regional Bank president and CEO. “This has truly been the main driver of our success.”
Another firm, Annese & Associates Inc., which has had an office in the Rochester area since 1977, was honored among the small to midsize firms, as well.
The program is a partnership of NYS Society for Human Resource Management, Best Companies Group, Journal Multimedia Corp. and the Business Council of New York.
