Kal Rudman

Philanthropist Kal Rudman is a music and show business pioneer and legend. As the founder and publisher of the nation’s leading radio and music industry publications (headquartered in Cherry Hill, NJ), Rudman has an unparalleled track record for picking hits and forecasting trends. His six industry trades (led by The Friday Morning Quarterback) are invaluable reading for thousands of top music and industry professionals.

Rudman began his music and radio career as a Top 40 radio jock at WCAM in Camden. Initially, he juggled his popular late night show with his day job as a science teacher. Building his success on his passion for rhythm-and-blues, he was soon hired as Billboard magazine’s first R&B editor.

A few years later, Rudman left to start his first trade publication. But he’s never left the airwaves far behind. He continued to do local radio, as well as nationally-syndicated broadcasts. He partnered with Merv Griffin; became the resident music expert on the Today show; and is frequently recognized on the streets for one of his more unusual gigs – as announcer for the World Wrestling Federation.

But, over the years, his true love is “giving back.” Kal and his wife, Lucille, have become noted philanthropists. The Kal and Lucille Rudman Foundation is particularly interested in education and public safety. They have created countless scholarships and awards for students of the arts, supporting police and firefighter training and helping children in need.

Here are some of Kal’s current projects:

Kal helps underwrite the Health Tech program at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. The program takes deserving students from the worst crime neighborhoods in the city and gives them an incredible chance to work with health professionals. Each school year, 30 students get paid to work 16 hours a week at the hospital. Each summer, the number swells to 50. Graduates of the program have gone on to work in cancer research, as respiratory specialists, and as children’s vaccination specialist, among many other fields. The high school graduation rate of Health Tech participants is 98 percent. The Philadelphia public school average is 51 percent.

Kal pays for full scholarships for city firefighters to expand their education and horizons with a degree program at Holy Family University. For the past four years, dozens of firefighters have gone through the program majoring in fire science and fire safety administration. A significant focus of the course is major incident analysis, which focuses on responses to potential terrorism attacks. The program has been a boon for the individuals as well as the fire department. As a small thank you, the department has made Kal Honorary Fire Commissioner.

Kal’s efforts often key on helping police and fire needs. He’s paid for thousands of smoke and fire detectors to be given free of charge to the city’s poorest residents. He’s paid for new motorcycles for the police force, as well as for the training or narcotics dogs. He’s currently working to build a lasting memorial to the firefighter victims of the city biggest conflagration.

Kal also sponsors a medical summer camp at Drexel University, where deserving Philadelphia high school students get to work with leading medical professionals as they shape a better future themselves and their families.

Kal and his wife Lucille’s generosity and passion for the entertainment industry led to their support of the Kal and Lucille Rudman Institute for Entertainment Industry Studies at Drexel University. Their goal is to create an invaluable resource for Drexel’s students who aspire to careers in today’s diverse entertainment industry, and to create an academic center that studies, focuses and shapes the issues and trends of America’s rapidly changing film, television, music, Internet and gaming businesses. As Rudman says, “Everyone has two businesses – their business and show business.”

He bought all the equipment for Cherry Hill police department’s mobile Kid-Cards program. The department uses the computer hardware and software to print identification cards for township children for parents and police to use if a child becomes lost. The program interlaces with the national Amber Alert.

For three years, he’s paid tuition to send local police to Camden County College. Over 30 of them went there, on scholarship, to major in criminal justice and police science. He’s bought police dogs for Cherry Hill. One of them is now completing narcotics training. He’s paying for the design and building of a memorial to a recently slain Cherry Hill police officer.

The Rudmans are residents of Cherry Hill, NJ. Kal is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (B.A.) and Temple University (M.A.)

Jeff Frahm

Jeff Frahm was the middle child of a conservative working class family in Ft. Collins, Colorado. At 17 and newly graduated from high school he boldly and courageously loaded all his belongings in his Volkswagen bug and drove across country to Phoenix, Arizona to start his career and future. Through true grit and determination over the next several years Jeff became a leader in his industry. His tried and tested failures did not stop Jeff from achieving his goals. Today as a top developer with a leading restaurant chain company Jeff rubs shoulders on a regular basis with millionaires who daily consult with him for business advice as well as strive to imitate his vision, motivational ability, and professional business approach.

Keep Your Feet on the Ground and Reach for the Stars” has always been Jeff Frahm’s mission statement in life and business. In 1991, at 21 years of age he moved back to Eureka Springs, Arkansas with his new wife to begin his career in Subway as a franchisee with his father. Starting at the “bottom of the food chain” he worked his way to the top of his game and in 2003 was personally recruited by the founder of Subway, Fred Deluca to work directly with him. As a result, he became the North American Development Manager for Subway Corporate overseeing 1000+ Subway restaurants in over 13 territories including Canada. His job in these corporate takeovers was to clean up and restructure teams of people not only on the corporate management level but also to motivate the existing franchisee pool to better perform and increase sales. Jeff has received many accolades for his work and his ability to be a visionary with the follow through it takes to achieve excellence. He is a skillful leader and teacher who inspires and empowers people to set and reach their goals. Several ideas created at these brainstorming sessions are now standard practices within these restaurants.

Changing Mindsets and Developing People to Reach their True Potential

If you were to ask anyone who has worked with Jeff for any period of time you would quickly find out he is a sought after genius in his field. His colleagues would tell you that he has incredible talent they wish they could better tap into and implement. His employees would say they are “loyal to him for life” as he pushes people to realize just how great they can be and doesn’t accept excuses from himself nor those who work for him. His wife of 20 years would tell you he has truly developed into a well-rounded business and family man who pushes through obstacles most people never even try to break through, all this with a positive attitude. His friends would tell you he is a very well respected teacher and great role model for young people.

In 2008 Jeff became self-employed and currently is owner of MOKAN Franchise Development Inc. overseeing Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas Subway franchises. He also continues to be involved in ownership of restaurants that allow him to tap into his love for developing people.

In just 2009 alone Jeff has been asked to speak at multiple seminars and conventions throughout North America, both in the business realm and in his religious affiliation. On a great day for Jeff you would find him doing what he loves the most: speaking in front of large groups of people truly inspiring them to break through their negative mental barriers to become BETTER business entrepreneurs, BETTER parents, BETTER husbands/wives, BETTER people.

Ziv Alcalay

Ziv Alcalay, born in Israel, immigrated as an infant to New York City in 1972 with his parents. Shortly thereafter, the three were joined in the US by Ziv’s father’s family consisting of Ziv’s three uncles and their families.Aside from being a close knit family, they all shared a common goal of pursuing the “American Dream”.  Each of the four brothers was motivated and accustomed to hard work. They viewed America as “The Land of Opportunity”.  It wasn’t long before Ziv’s father and uncles immersed themselves into what was going to become a series of lifelong business partnerships.

These events were to eventually shape Ziv’s values, dreams and life goals. Ziv was exposed to a perfect life balance of family members, who lived together, worked together and celebrated life together. This unique and exciting environment is what fostered Ziv’s fascination with entrepreneurship.

His father recalls that even as a young boy, Ziv would often forgo spending time with friends outdoors in favor of sitting in on business meetings with adults 30 years his senior. By the time Ziv was a teenager; his insider exposure to the family business instilled in him a wealth of business knowledge, well beyond his years. At this point, Ziv had truly come to value both his tight knit family and the family business.

Ziv’s high energy personality, coupled with his ambition for success motivated him to expedite his entry into the professional world. Ziv opted into an early admission business program at New York University at age seventeen and completed his double major degree in Finance and International Business by the age of 20.

During the course of his studies, he worked full time in the family commodity trading business, playing a key role in expanding it from a regional venture to an international enterprise.

Ziv’s enriching childhood experiences taught him that “if there is a will, there is a way!” This motto still guides Ziv in every facet of his life today. His colleagues and peers know that he will not take “no” for an answer once his mind is set.

In his personal life, Ziv is a true family man. He cherishes quality time with his wife of 5 years and three young children.  Ziv has made it a personal goal to pass along to his children the importance of family and the values that he is guided by.  Ziv maintains a very active lifestyle physically, and is considered by many a ‘health nut’. He often preaches to his peers the importance of a healthy body as a compliment to a healthy mind. He takes his good health seriously and considers exercise and overall wellbeing necessities of life rather than luxuries.

As COO and co-creator of VITAZEST Water, Ziv takes pride in marketing a product that truly delivers on the “good- for- you promise”.  This product’s nutritional profile is in line with Ziv’s health beliefs. Furthermore, VITAZEST has been deemed by medical experts a safe and preferred drink option for people diagnosed with diabetes and pre-diabetes. VITAZEST is a contributor to diabetes research through The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation. VITAZEST gives back to the community with the ultimate goal of finding a cure for the disease.

Although, always on the move, Ziv is a down to earth individual who enjoys the simple things in life. His hobbies are working with children, playing the guitar, regular exercise and coaching sports. Ziv constantly reminds himself that he is blessed in many ways and never takes any of his blessings for granted.
