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.

I am closing the loop here. Today was the 19th installment of the Rochester Downtown Development Corp.'s "Repositioning Rochester" series.
At the meeting County Executive Maggie Brooks said: "We see the glass as half empty, but it's really half full."
Guess that means only 19 more sessions before we fill the rest of the glass.
