“I am extremely pleased to expand Marianne’s responsibility as manager of the St. James/Smithtown office to include Stony Brook,” said Ms. Anderson. “There is a clear connection between the two offices, and under Marianne’s guidance we expect that synergy to further develop into a regional force as we grow into 2013 and beyond.
