(Central Islip, N.Y., June 14, 2024) – The publishers of six award-winning weekly newspapers on Long Island’s North Shore, Blank Slate Media, have announced that Ducks President/Chief Business Officer Michael Pfaff has been selected as a 2024 Top Business Leader of Nassau County.

On Thursday, June 20, Pfaff will be amongst a diverse group of leaders, from business and finance, to law, medicine, not-for-profit and more that will be honored at the annual event held at Leonard’s Palazzo in Great Neck.

“Any individual honor is a reflection of the great team we have with the Ducks,” said Pfaff. “We appreciate the award and look forward to a wonderful event on the 20th.”
