Posted by Tom on 06/10/2011
The Business Council of Westchester has named Bedford resident Nat Mundy, vice president and co-founder of Grand Prix New York in Mount Kisco, as one of the “Rising Stars – Westchester’s Forty Under Forty”.
He will be recognized for his professional accomplishments, leadership qualities, and business success at an awards ceremony June 9, 2011.
Here is the news release:
The Business Council of Westchester’s annual “Rising Stars” program is the most prestigious honor among young business leaders throughout the county. Forty awards are given to young men and women who have demonstrated professional or entrepreneurial achievements, and exemplify strong leadership and a vision for the future of Westchester.
Nat Mundy’s vision for GPNY took shape in 2007 while working at a Land Rover dealership shortly after college. With strong belief in his unique concept, he approached Diamond Properties, Northern Westchester’s leading full service owner and manager of properties, and convinced them to pave 118,000 s/f of their newly acquired building at 333 North Bedford Road. Nat’s foresight turned an empty warehouse into a multi-million dollar indoor professional karting facility and multi-entertainment venue, the first of its kind in the area. Now only four years later, GPNY employs over 93 staff and draws business into Westchester County from all over the region. With plans for a 19 lane, upscale bowling facility underway, GPNY’s positive contribution to Westchester’s economy continues to rise.
“It’s a privilege to be recognized by The Business Council of Westchester alongside esteemed professionals,” said Mundy. “This honor reinforces my commitment to propel GPNY to even greater heights.” In addition to being named a “Rising Star,” Nat was also one of 24 entrepreneurs profiled as a “Westchester Wunderkind” – the county’s brightest, most accomplished professional young superstars – in the latest issue of 914INC magazine.
Nat’s status as one of Westchester’s most respected, successful entrepreneurs has brought to GPNY numerous opportunities for involvement in charitable causes, of which Nat is a strong advocate. Since opening, GPNY has been involved in a supporting role with over 500 Westchester County schools, churches, and non-profits. The steady growth of GPNY, coupled with its dedicated staff and community involvement, is a direct result of Nat’s leadership and speaks to the quality of his unyielding work ethic.
“GPNY would not be successful without the support of our community; each person who has walked through our doors has contributed to our growth,” said Mundy. “Having recently entered my 30’s, community involvement has become a priority for me both personally and professionally. I would like my legacy to be one of giving back.”
