2016 New York EANYC Deals of Distinction Awards – Deals of the Year
EANYC is a top notch organization. The members go out of their way to make introductions and refer business to other members. I know EANYC will help me grow my business for many years to come.
Being a member of EANYC for more than ten years has opened my eyes to the power of networking. Since joining EANYC in 2004, we have learned how to get business by being proactive. As a result, we have been able to grow our business without additional expense. The return on our investment has been unparalleled and we could not be happier witrh our decision to join EANYC in 2004. We recommend membership for any business owner who wants to grow their business without hesitation.
A member asked our firm to analyze the group's medical plan. I introduced a separate insurer for the hourly population and a much more efficient prescription drug plan for the owner/management segment. This saved the firm well into 5 figures annually and earned me a long term client (they're now adding a voluntary insurance program) and a strong spokesperson from The Association. This process of continual learning and exploring our respective businesses make us more attuned to doing direct business and to referring prospects from our many spheres of influence. Optimally, we serve as extended sales forces for each other and strongly "stand by" each other as references.
As an active member of EANYC, I have had the advantage of being able to utilize numerous companies that are on the membership roster to aid in the selling and buying process of Manhattan real estate. Our customers have come to appreciate our added network of these quality vendors we’ve recommended through the years.
EANYC is passionate about helping business people make connections. Whether through organized forums, email interactions or mentoring, members can count on making new contacts and deepening relationships with an expected outcome of advancing their business goals. EANYC is run by members, for members, reinforcing the goal of collaboration for mutual benefit and providing a strong sense of camaraderie.
Joining EA is a process that speaks to their selectivity, ensuring that you are working with a strong group of professionals in mature businesses. Upon finally being accepted, and in only a few months, I have been given opportunities for sizable contracts. The members are genuine and work with you in good faith, which has tremendous value for an entrepreneur.
EANYC membership has opened up a whole new world to me. I joined for the networking opportunities, and I got so much more -- solid business referrals from a wonderful community of business people who help each other be successful.
The Executives’ Association of New York City has helped grow my business exponentially. The members are hardworking, business owners who support one another with the shared goal of growing each others business.
So far I have enjoyed meeting many successful, like-minded professionals that seem to be genuinely interested in helping each other succeed.
Paul Neumann of Neumann's (one of New Yorks premier caterers) referred me to a client who was purchasing a rent stabilized building. After performing due diligence and closing on the purchase, the firm was retained to litigate against several of the tenants. The client then employed Rosenberg & Estis to assist him in the purchase of The Pines, a resort located on Fire Island. This complex and heavily publicized transaction, which also involved the purchase of various business assets, was successfully completed in 2010. The client continues to employ the firm for various real estate matters, demonstrating how for EANYC members, business relationships often lead to other business relationships.
A rewarding experience.
GROW NEWS IS GOOD NEWS.
Virtually all member companies gain new sales as a result of joining. Most members will tell you that the Executives’ Association is more cost-effective than any marketing expense their company makes. In 2008 our members reported total revenue from referrals and savings of $10 million. And in 2009, in a continued downturned market our members reported total revenue from referrals and savings at $14 million! We refer to this as R.O.R…or “return on relationships.”
WE MEET. WE GREET. WE SHARE.
EANYC meets weekly at the Harvard Club for the primary purpose of exchanging leads and sharing other information directly related to generating business for members. Constant attention is focused on keeping meetings worthwhile and productive.
Let’s face it: people do business with those they know and trust – and that starts with members themselves. To foster close relationships within the association, all Exclusive members are required to attend at least 50% of the meetings. Open members are required a minimum of 1 luncheon meeting per quarter. This attendance requirement ensures members grow to know and trust each other on the way to establishing productive business relationships.
IT’S LONELY AT THE TOP, BUT IN A GOOD WAY.
EANYC membership classifications are carefully defined and maintained. Every effort is made to provide each business with category exclusivity. Since the Association covers metropolitan New York, this exclusivity provides an important competitive edge in the nation’s largest market. Open Membership allows for the possibility of 2 companies to coexist in a category.
IT’S A SMALLER WORLD THAN YOU THINK.
All of our members are owners, partners or members of upper management in their companies, and they’re uniquely qualified to provide highly valuable third-party introductions. The success of the Executives’ Association concept is evidenced by the 90+ other organizations that make up the International Executives’ Association (IEA). Almost anywhere you travel, the benefits of membership travel with you.
WE NEVER STOP LEARNING.
EANYC engages speakers on an ongoing basis to keep members apprised of trends, techniques and current events. Past speakers have included politicians, executive coaches, FBI agents, IRS officials, sales gurus and more.
