YONKERS, NEW YORK – December 12, 2019 — Robert Cioffi, co-founder and chief operating officer of Progressive Computing, will join the Board of Directors at the Business Council of Westchester, the county’s largest and most influential business membership organization. All board members are elected by the Business Council of Westchester’s membership during its recent annual meeting.
“I am humbled by the confidence that The Business Council of Westchester has shown in me,” said Cioffi. “I expect to leverage my experience as a small business owner for the last 25 years, as well as my unique technological insights, to enhance and advance the council’s mission. A position like this fits in perfectly with my personal Go-Giver philosophy.”
A longstanding member of the business council since 2002, Progressive Computing has helped foster the organization’s growth and celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.
“Beyond providing IT support to the council and sponsoring many of our events, Robert has served as an integral part of this organization,” said council President and CEO, Marsha Gordon. “From moderating numerous panels and programs covering important IT and cyber security issues, to serving as a guest columnist for our publications, he has donated an incalculable amount of time to our members. We named him to our first class of Rising Stars and he continues to shine.”
Founded by Cioffi and Chief Executive Officer Ugo Chiulli, two Yonkers natives, Progressive Computing recently moved into new headquarters in the city. Many prominent local politicians attended their anniversary event and issued proclamations praising their staying power and civic activities.
Progressive works closely with the STRIVE program, which helps Yonkers students with technology job training and job placement, along with many other volunteer educational and community-building endeavors.
The company has expanded as computer technology evolved. And, they have expanded their footprint from Westchester County to across the country, servicing businesses in San Jose, Dallas and Denver, along with another firm that supports 26 offices nationwide.
According to Cioffi, Progressive Computing grew up alongside the Business Council of Westchester.
“The council has been fertile ground for us to find many new customers because it attracts such a wealth of world class companies that are always looking to network and build their own organizations,” he said. “Several years ago, I was the subject matter expert for a small group of council members and landed two customers who have represented millions of dollars in business. I have been involved with the council for almost 20 years, so now it’s my turn to give back and spread the wealth, so to speak, to all of our members.”
