The Chamber helps drive success for Gil Cygler’s car rental company
What does your business do? When and Why did you join the Brooklyn Chamber?
Gil Cygler is president of All Car™ Rent-A-Car, a Brooklyn-based car rental company that since 1977 has grown to 15 locations across all five boroughs, many open seven days a week: “We specialize in serving Brooklyn residents and businesses needing to rent cars, minivans, 15-passenger vans or moving trucks. We are a lower cost alternative to many of our competitors and accept cash and debit cards as deposits. We also offer special rates and programs for local businesses and organizations.
I joined the Chamber in 2005, as a way to get more involved in the community where I live and work, and to meet other business people with whom I could network and share ideas.”
How has your Brooklyn Chamber membership assisted your business?
“Attending the Chamber’s regular networking events, as well as events like the Golf Outing and Winter Gala, have allowed me to meet people with whom I have become friends and from whom I continue to learn. I enjoy participating on the Government Affairs Committee where I serve as vice-chair. The Chamber’s business services are a great resource – I have found staff members through the Good Help staffing program and received back-up technical assistance from their Human Resources Assistance program that helped me secure a grant from the NYC Business Solutions Training Funds program. I have found the more I put into the Chamber, the more I get out of my membership.”
