Gevril Group Teams Up With Local Sports Complex

Valley Cottage Little League Braves

by Adrian Herscovici  

Gevril Group announced today that it is now an official sponsor of the Herb Reisman Sports Complex. The complex, located in the Town of Ramapo in Rockland County — close to Gevril Group head office in Valley Cottage — is home to several amateur sports leagues and teams.

Samuel Friedmann, owner and president of Gevril Group, is an advocate of strong partnerships and believes collaboration is a key success factor in both business and community development. By supporting youth and youth programs in the Rockland County area, Gevril Group is helping to build and sustain the vibrant community in which it is based. In 2013, Friedmann was presented with a Certificate of Achievement from Rockland County in appreciation of his service rendered to the county.

“Community matters,” says Friedmann. “It is our sincere belief that one of the best ways to ensure Rockland County thrives is to give back. We are fortunate to live and work in an area rich in parklands, and it is important that these public spaces be maintained for youth activity now, and in the future. We want to ensure that teams like the Valley Cottage Braves and other little leaguers have a place to exercise, play and compete.”

The Herb Reisman Sports Complex provides youth and adults with a huge play surface spanning multiple sports. The complex includes a recreation center, two baseball diamonds, tennis courts, basketball courts, sand volleyball courts, a walking path and an all-purpose football and soccer field. The sports complex is adjacent to the Eugene Levy Memorial Park, which has additional facilities.

Two Gevril Group banners are prominently displayed in one of the baseball diamond outfields. The first is a promotion for Haurex, an Italian brand that produces trendy and affordable sport watches like the Turbina II pictured on the banner. The second banner shows one of Gevril’s signature models, the Avenue of Americas Glamour.

Celebration Time for Giants Fans

New York Giants Victory ParadeToday was the Giants Victory Parade and Rally, where hundreds of thousands of fans celebrated New York’s Superbowl victory! As we said in our blog post yesterday featuring legendary Giants player Michael Strahan, we at Gevril Group in New York have been Giants fans for years.

We’re not fair-weather Giants fans who only root for the team when they’re winning. It’s very easy to cheer for a winner when they get a parade and keys to the city, but real fans are there good times and bad, year in and year out, showing their support and admiration for the team.

Being long-time fans, of course we have some great Giants memories in our photo album! Let’s take a walk down memory lane for a moment. We remember having a blast when former Giant quarterback Jesse Palmer — you may also recognize him as “The Bachelor” from that show’s fifth season — joined us, along with company President Samuel Friedmann, for a special Gevril Group event in New York celebrating the Avenue of the Americas watch collection.

Take a peek at our photo album, and you’ll see Jesse wearing this watch with style!

Gevril Group Customer Service Testimonial

Gevril Mens GV2 2604B Moonphase Luxury Watch“Last year I purchased a Gevril Lexington Moonphase [watch].

“When I received the watch, I was having some health issues so I did not have a chance to look at all the paperwork for a couple of weeks. When I finally had a chance to look at the papers, I realized that the Gevril manual that was enclosed did not include the Lexington Moonphase watch, which utilizes both a quartz movement for the hour and a manual movement for the Moonphase.

“At that point I contacted both [the seller] and Gevril Customer Service to obtain the proper manual. I arranged with Gevril to have a manual mailed to my address in San Diego from [Gevril worldwide headquarters] in Valley Cottage, NY.

“Not only did I receive the proper manual — I also received an e-mail from Michela Bonincontri of Gevril Customer Service asking me if I had received the item, which [she had] sent via express mail.

“When I had a problem setting the Moonphase, something to do with large fingers and a rather small watch crown, Michela was able to take me through the process step by step, since she owned a Lexington, as well. By the way, a really cool watch!!

“With all the problems that people experience with watch companies, it was a nice change to deal with people who really knew what they were doing, understood their customers and actually used their own company’s products.”
