Vinny started out as a helper at age 13 working on a commercial installation at Imperial Milk Plant in the Bronx. After that summer he knew what he wanted to do on his days off from school. By the time he reached 18 and finished high school he was on his way to being an installer and it wasn’t long until he was running the job. Through his 20’s he enjoyed selling and installing fences. In order to expand the business, it required a full time sales effort and in his early thirties, he made the transition. He is now responsible for the daily operations and overseeing 3 full time salesmen, and over forty employees.
After 35 plus years in the fence business and seeing many changes to the industry I have learned that if you are honest with your customer and knowledgeable about your craft you will succeed.
Starting as a young ambitious helper and moving up to a lead foreman I enjoyed seeing the improvement we made to a customer’s property. Now that I am doing sales and project managing I still enjoy the daily interaction with clients and the result of our work.
