The Business Page

Welcome to the business page, a blog where I'll take you behind the scenes of greater Rochester's fast-changing economy. My name is Ben Rand, and I intend to introduce you to some of the personalities, concepts and events that make news in business here. I've been a business reporter for eight years in Rochester and a journalist for 18, working in four states. I grew up in Pittsford, but moved away after college for about a decade. My wife and I live in Irondequoit with our two children.

An Honor for Seabreeze Park

Here's a neat little local-guy-does-good-story. Rob Norris, president and general manager of Seabreeze Park, will serve as chairman in 2006 of the International Association of Amusement Parks, the largest international trade association of its kind. The association, with 4,500 members, works to lead on issues such as safety, efficiency, marketing and profitability. Members come from a wide variety of backgrounds, everything from go-kart parks on up to Disney and Six Flags. Norris is the fifth generation in his family to be involved in running Seabreeze Park, which is the fourth oldest park of its kind in the nation, and 11th oldest nationwide. He's been working at Seabreeze since he was 10 years old and expects to be on the road quite a bit in his new job. Ceremonial, yes, but Norris expects to pick up ideas in his travels that could ultimately benefit Seabreeze.
