Katonah Museum Chief Among 'Best Bosses' in Westchester

Westchester Magazine describes how Watson led the museum through the recession with a combination of great leadership and shared sacrifice.

Neil Watson was among 14 business and nonprofit leaders named by Westchester Magazine as the county's "greatest leaders and bosses."

Watson, the executive director at the , was named alongside such individuals as Marsha Gordon, president & CEO of the Westchester Business Council, and Thomas Schwarz, president of Purchase College, SUNY. 

The story describes Watson's work in leading the museum through the recession and a loss in the museum's endowment. The local cultural institution survived—and thrived—through benefit and pay sacrifices among staff, according to the piece.

“Neil is somebody who wants to hear everybody’s ideas about everything. He brought us all together and we spoke about what each one of us could sacrifice in our departments," Nancy Wallach, director of curatorial affairs, told the magazine.
