City of Peekskill Welcomes New Economic Development Specialist and Executive Director of the Peekskill IDA

Peekskill’s a happening place and my goal is to work with all the existing stakeholders that have made Peekskill’s recent dramatic progress possible – while paving the way for an even stronger, future resilient and sustainable economic community in which the whole population benefits.

The City of Peekskill announces the appointment of Matthew D. Rudikoff to lead Peekskill’s Office of Economic Development within the City Planning Department. Rudikoff was also named Executive Director of the Peekskill Industrial Development Agency (PIDA). The mission of the dual position is to leverage public and private resources to strengthen, stabilize and expand the City’s economy: businesses, nonprofit organizations and the workforce.

“Peekskill’s a happening place and my goal is to work with all the existing stakeholders that have made Peekskill’s recent dramatic progress possible – while paving the way for an even stronger, future resilient and sustainable economic community in which the whole population benefits,” Rudikoff stated.

Prior to the City of Peekskill, Matthew Rudikoff spent more than two decades as president of MDRA, Inc., a highly regarded regional economic development, planning and environmental consulting firm working for a diverse group of public, private and nonprofit clients. He also served as Development Director for the City of Poughkeepsie as well as Federal / State Liaison Officer for the New York City Model Cities administration.

“Matthew is going to be a great asset to our city,” said Peekskill Mayor Andre Rainey. “In such a short time, I can already sense he’s very energetic, motivated and looking for ways to develop new strategies to support our business community. He certainly has excellent customer service skills, a high level of organization, great communication, and is a proactive thinker. I look forward to the years to come working with him.”

The two most immediate goals for Rudikoff: one, protect and advance Peekskill’s economy and citizens to weather the COVID19 contagion and two, for the 2020 Census to document Peekskill’s phenomenal growth as a diverse and sustainable community – achieving a City population of over 25,000.

“I urge everyone to follow COVID social distancing and other directives to minimize the virus’ spread and damage to citizens, families and our economy. On a far more positive note, please respond to the 2020 Census – either online, by phone, or by mail. An accurate count is crucial for securing federal funding for infrastructure, parks and other important programs. Be active – respond to the Census and help spread the word – not spread the virus!”

“The Peekskill Industrial Development Agency is pleased to welcome Matthew as our new Executive Director,” said Deborah Post, Chairperson of PIDA. “He has already proven to be a great asset as we work to utilize the Agency’s economic development tools to aid Peekskill through the Coronavirus pandemic and future growth.”

Rudikoff was the founding chairman of the Dutchess County Hospitality Industry Council, staff director of the Poughkeepsie Partnership and chairman of its BID Formation Committee, member of the Beacon Economic Development Task Force, Conference Committee Co-Chairman, Mid-Hudson Patterns for Progress, staff director of the Poughkeepsie Overall Economic Development Plan Committee and frequent presenter and panelist at many planning and economic development conferences. Rudikoff is currently a member of the Ulster County Planning Board.

“The Peekskill Business Improvement District will continue working with Matthew as we all come together to focus on the City of Peekskill’s fiscal recovery once this health and economic emergency subsides,” said Brian Fassett, President of the Peekskill BID. “With our stronger and renewed sense of community, we can help Peekskill recover through smart, sustainable development while still preserving our existing businesses and our wealth of environmental, historical and artistic assets.”

“Having an Economic Development Specialist in place is so important as Peekskill navigates these uncharted waters,” said Deb Milone, President of the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce. “We are working together through this crisis and, as recovery takes place, we look forward to bringing new business and development to Peekskill.”

The aim of the City of Peekskill Economic Development Office is to help consolidate and stabilize the City’s recent growth, noted Rudikoff. “This means new partnerships, completing pending projects, connecting the downtown and waterfront, and creating ‘new-economy’ employment opportunities weaving-in arts, media and tech. We’re committed to fostering a local economy ‘new-venture’ entrepreneurial atmosphere – growing Peekskill’s destination power, business diversity and market strengths.”

Rudikoff continued, “The next generation of Peekskill’s new projects will build on that solid base – being even more sustainable, job generating and successful; linking government services and strengthening the local economy for the benefit of everyone in Peekskill – its businesses, agencies, visitors and future residents.”

Rudikoff holds a Bachelor of Science in Economics from SUNY New Paltz and a Masters in City and Regional Planning from Rutgers University.

The City of Peekskill is located at 840 Main Street in Peekskill, N.Y., and can be reached at 914-737-3400 or by visiting http://www.cityofpeekskill.com.

America’s Preferred Home Warranty’s Planning, Tech Allow ‘Business As Usual’ During COVID-19 Lockdown


America's Preferred Home Warranty

America’s Preferred Home Warranty

This would not have been possible without the foresight of leadership to develop cloud-based systems that our employees could access from anywhere.

America’s Preferred Home Warranty (APHW) continued providing award-winning customer service without a hitch—and with virtually no hold times—after Michigan’s Governor Whitmer, in an effort to protect all Michiganders, signed Executive Order 2020-21 directing residents to remain at home or in their place of residence to the maximum extent feasible. But then, most of APHW’s staff were already working from home at that point: The company had leveraged technology along with years of planning for an event just such as COVID-19.

“This would not have been possible without the foresight of leadership to develop cloud-based systems that our employees could access from anywhere,” said APHW Vice President of Operations Mike Sadler. “We had an emergency preparedness plan to keep operations up and running despite anything thrown at us. This is that very plan in action, and it’s going even better than we could have hoped.”

APHW’s investments in technology and systems, along with detailed documented process planning, have resulted in a full-time, uninterrupted operation with the same exceptional customer service that homeowners and real estate agents have come to know. “We’ve been able to transition our staff to working from home quickly and seamlessly,” said APHW CEO Rodney Martin. “Our entire operation is 100% U.S. based, we answer all of our calls right here in Michigan, and we’ve continued answering with virtually no hold times at all.”

APHW has also taken a variety of other technological steps recently, including developing a way for customers to Start a Claim Online (https://aphw.com/claim-start/), and achieving a spot in the HousingWire.com TECH-100 (a list of companies innovating technology for real estate), recognizing APHW’s Real-Pro® app, which enables real estate agents nationwide to order and track APHW home warranties in under a minute. (https://bit.ly/3dwPKKq)

While many American companies face difficult economic times with the coronavirus (along with the rest of the world), APHW continues to break barriers.

PrismHR Partners with Doctegrity to Provide Telemedicine Benefits for HR Service Providers and their Small Business Customers


“Doctegrity is designed to be the ‘Netflix’ of healthcare – meaning, anyone can use us, anytime, anywhere, and with no surprise costs. In the HR service provider world, that’s a big advantage to have.”

PrismHR, the leading HR technology software powering payroll, benefits, and HR for businesses across the U.S., today announced a new partnership with Doctegrity to provide 24/7/365 telemedicine services to its network of HR service providers and their small business customers nationwide.

PrismHR service provider partners can offer Doctegrity’s industry-leading telemedicine services in addition to existing healthcare plans, which often don’t cover telemedicine or charge co-pays, to their employees, including those working part time. And because Doctegrity doesn’t file claims with insurance carriers, this can ultimately lead to lower health insurance premiums for HR service providers.

PrismHR service provider partners can now immediately offer their small business customers access to telemedicine resources, including:

  • Unlimited 24/7/365 primary care doctor visits by phone or video chat. If needed, the doctors can write a prescription to the pharmacy of the patient’s choice.
  • Unlimited medical advice or ‘second opinions,’ including the ability to upload blood tests results, x-rays and MRI’s and to ask Doctegrity’s doctors questions through secured messaging
  • Unlimited 24/7/365 mental health teletherapy
  • Pharmacy discount card – up to 80% off of prescriptions
  • Availability in English and Spanish nationwide
  • Benefit for employee and family member
  • No copays or consultation fees
  • Open enrollment – companies can enroll their employees any time with immediate benefit activation
  • Access to Doctegrity’s new coronavirus self-assessment tool including advice for dealing with issues around daily life

Jesse Ohayon, CEO of Doctegrity, said: “Our new partnership with PrismHR is a natural fit. Doctegrity’s leadership came out of the people operations industry rather than a hospital executive team. Therefore, we knew forging a strong relationship with PrismHR would be a mutual key to success. PrismHR recognized that we understood the industry and saw the value we bring to their clients.”

“Doctegrity is designed to be the ‘Netflix’ of healthcare – meaning, anyone can use us, anytime, anywhere, and with no surprise costs. In the HR service provider world, that’s a big advantage to have. And right now we’re focused on our fight against COVID-19. We’re continuously improving our technology and arming our doctors on the latest information in order to deliver better care, in a highly cost effective manner. PrismHR is an ideal partner for us to be able to reach these workers and deliver our benefit to these people.”

“Clearly, telemedicine is a critical and important benefit for employees nationwide,” said Tim Pratte, Senior Vice President of Diversified Services at PrismHR. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer Doctegrity’s feature-rich program to our network of HR service providers as they strive to provide top-notch, relevant benefits to their small business clients.”

About Doctegrity
