"As a corporate financial executive for the last 30 years I have sat on many corporate and economic development boards helping small businesses in Suffolk County to grow and train its workforce ," Walker said. "It is through this involvement that I identified a need for a brick and motar that can help start ups, artists and artisans to bring their products and talents to the community at minimal cost."
