Company Description

Any agency or brand can churn out endless white noise for products and services, but this does no one any good. Unfortunately, even after this approach inevitably fails, the reflex is often to “turn up” the noise for better results rather than fine-tune it.

At Ruckus, observing this approach has confirmed a long-held suspicion:
just because an idea is louder or flashier, that doesn’t mean the message is being heard. To be heard, we have to be smarter not louder. This is expertly crafted disruption.

Expertly crafted disruption is so powerful, in part, because it’s so simple. If an idea isn’t disruptive or engaging enough to catch consumer attention, it’s only adding to the white noise in the background. And, if it’s not expertly crafted to be smart and innovative, it’s falling on deaf ears – no matter how loudly you blare the message.

Member Description

Convincing the local lumber yard to set up a trade account at the age of 15 was one of Andrew’s early accomplishments as a young builder growing up in Long Island. From an early age, Andrew looked for any opportunity he could to hone his skills with local builders, and as a young man, he set out to build his own home improvement company from the ground up.
Andrew pursued a degree in accounting and business to gain the professional experience he needed to run a successful construction firm, and in 1990, he became a professional CPA, auditing large construction firms throughout the country.
He re-ignited his life-long dream in 1993, opening the doors to Liebhaber Company on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Today, his company is an 80+ person multi-disciplined establishment of craftsmen, project managers, and millworkers who specialize in high end residential renovations, restaurant construction, and amenity space development for discerning clients throughout the city.

Company Description

Since 1993, Liebhaber Company has been building distinctive residences, condo/co-op lobbies, fine restaurants, and cultural spaces for discerning Manhattan clients.
Liebhaber works closely with architects, designers, owner’s reps, and engineers providing one-on-one personal attention with a resourceful and dedicated team of skilled craftsmen and project managers. Throughout the entire construction process, clients experience an organized, meticulous, and devoted team who is in-tune with them throughout the entire process.
Services include pre-purchase consulting and budgeting, construction planning and logistics, professional construction management services, construction renovation, and fine architectural millwork fabrication.
The company’s philosophy is simple – consistently reinforce a great relationship with clients, focus on their needs, and foster a collaborative experience. This is how great spaces are made.

Principal at Howard L Zimmerman Architects PC

New York, NY 10001

http://www.hlzimmerman.com

P | 212.564.9393

Member Description

Howard Zimmerman’s path to creating one of New York City’s most trusted architectural firms began in Stuyvesant Town on the Lower East Side. Inspired by the idealism of the fictional architect in Ayn Rand’s novel The Fountainhead who champions the design of buildings with great artistic integrity, Howard earned a B.S. in Architecture and Urban Landscaping from City College, and won a scholarship that enabled him to earn a Master’s Degree in Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. He returned to New York in the mid-1970s, when the city was in deep economic distress and architectural firms were not hiring. Determined not to abandon his professional ambitions, in 1976 he began to build his experience and reputation as an independent architect with small renovation projects, driving a taxi at first to make ends meet. Then, as now, he believed that long-term success was well worth short-term sacrifice. Since 1978, when he founded Howard L.Zimmerman Architects, P.C., Howard has dedicated himself to delivering not only the highest quality architectural and engineering services, but also developing and maintaining long-term client relationships built on a foundation of mutual trust and respect. To that end, he has organized a professional team of excellent architects, engineers, and technical specialists who share his belief in the importance of serving clients very well – to the best of their ability, and better than any competitor. In addition to leading the firm, Howard has established deep ties to the New York City community, especially the Lower East Side. He is on the Board of Trustees of The Educational Alliance (an affiliate of the UJA Federation of New York) and the 14th Street Y, and provides pro-bono services to the facilities team at the Tenement Museum. His professional affiliations include the American Institute of Architects, the Association of Building Owners, the Building Owners and Managers Association, and the Construction Specifications Institute. Howard has served as an Adjunct Professor at the City College School of Architecture and the New School, and he has served as a guest lecturer at New York University’s Real Estate Institute. He is a registered architect with licenses in New York, New Jersey, Washington, DC, and Florida and holds a certificate from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) that pre-qualifies him to be registered in all 50 states. In 2017, the American Institute of Architects elevated Howard to the College of Fellows, the highest honor to be bestowed upon an architect within the profession.

Company Description

Howard L. Zimmerman Architects, P.C. (HLZA) is a full-service architectural firm that specializes in the interior and exterior restoration, preservation, and alteration of existing buildings. Our team of architects, engineers, technical specialists, and building systems specialists offer particular expertise in the exterior envelope and forensic investigation. Over the past 30 years HLZA has developed an excellent reputation as the “go-to” exterior architecture firm for residential, commercial, and institutional properties in the New York region. We are “an architect’s architect” and take the view that expert restoration is essential not only to “green” sustainability, but also the financial sustainability of every property.

Member Description

Richard is the founder and leader of Distinctive Offices. He literally started from the ground up as a carpet installer. Following experience in the field of installing, he recognized that his talents would be better put to use on the business side. He learned to estimate and run work as a project manager. After working for several commercial carpet dealers as a business developer, he decided to go out on his own. For several years, he ran his company as a traditional commercial floor covering dealership working on new construction projects. Quickly, he realized that there was a void in the existing built-out office space, and the decision was made to create Distinctive Offices as a firm that specializes in the cosmetic renovation of occupied office space.
With all of his professional success, Richard is most proud of his family. Richard is married with three teenage girls. In fact, family is so important to Richard that he prides himself on establishing that same atmosphere of family at Distinctive Offices. Employees and clients alike are treated with the respect of one of his family members. Whether it is a professional or personal relationship, Richard is there for them.
Richard currently sits on two boards, one as the vice president of the metropolitan business network (NYC’s most prestigious business group) and as a member of POPPA’s board, helping the people who help everyone else, the NYPD.

Company Description

Distinctive Offices specializes in refreshing occupied office space. Using our proprietary Rapid Facelift Process, we are able to renovate a space without disrupting normal business operations. Our services include, but are not limited to, carpet, paint, wallpaper, ceiling cleaning, signage, pantry and restroom refresh along with specialty vinyl wrapping for refacing old cabinets or receptions desks.
