BUSINESS OF THE YEAR
Yorktown Autobody, Inc.
Perry Gusikoff was born in Rego Park and
grew up in Rockaway where he attended
school. He is a wonderful husband, father &
savvy business man. His career started in
Queens where he landed his first job at
Serges Auto Body. Perrys interest in the
auto body business began to grow and in
1986, he opened his first Auto Body Shop, PG
Auto Body. Four years into the business
there was a fire, so in 1991, Perry rebuilt the
shop to what is now one of his successful
businesses, All-n-All Automotive. After
moving to the Yorktown area and in 2009 he
seized the opportunity to purchase what is
now Yorktown Auto Body. With hard work
and dedication, the business is thriving and
well known to the community. Perry opened
another shop in Poughkeepsie, QB Collision.
Perry never seems to miss an opportunity
and in 2015, he opened a mechanic shop,
Town Automotive, in Poughkeepsie just
around the corner from QB Collision. His
most recent venture is Fishkill Auto Body
which was bought & completely renovated
this past year and will be opening soon! Perry
attributes his success to values that were in-
stilled in him early in his career such as in-
tegrity, honesty, trustworthiness and
perseverance. Throughout the years, he has
forged many strong friendships, business re-
lationships and community partners. He is a
very generous and good hearted person.
Perry is active in the community and always
willing to help whenever he can. He is a
member of the Yorktown Chamber of Com-
merce & the Dutchess County Chamber of
Commerce. He has also piloted an internship
program with the Lakeland Central School
District which enables students to come into
the shop, learn, work and be mentored all
while learning what could possibly become a
trade for life. He is a proud supporter of
many community organizations such as
ASK, MADD and Relay for Life, just to men-
tion a few. When not working, Perry enjoys
family time, hunting, skiing, vacationing and
working around the house.
