New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week nominated Julie Shimer, chief executive officer and president of Welch Allyn, to chair the board of the Empire State Development Corp.
Welch Allyn, located west of Syracuse, manufactures medical equipment for doctor’s offices and hospitals. It is a privately held family-owned company. Shimer became CEO and president in 2007 after serving on the board since 2002, according to the firm’s website.
