Purchase, NY (June 16, 2016) – Leading accounting, tax and advisory firm, Marks Paneth LLP, officially inaugurated its new Westchester County office on June 9 with an open house and ceremonial ribbon cutting led by Westchester County Executive Robert Astorino.  Mr. Astorino also proclaimed June 9 as Marks Paneth Recognition Day.  Joining him in presiding were Anthony J.
