COO Prestige Imports
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Rye Brook, New York. A wonderful suburb about 20 miles outside New York City.
Tell us a bit about your family
My Wife Tiffany and I have four children. Jake 21, Nina 19, Sydney 19 and Gianna 17. I have five sisters (I’m in the middle). My parents and most of my family live in South Florida, where I lived as well for the past 26 years before moving to Denver a little over a year ago.
Have you always been involved in the Automotive Industry?
I am in my 28th year in the Automotive Industry. I attended college to study Engineering. You never know where you will find your passion and skill sets.
What’s your favorite part about your line of work?
There is no business I know that has changed so much and yet at the same time stayed the same. It always has been and will be about the customers you serve, and the team you assemble to serve those customers.
A quote that inspires you?
“Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted” – Albert Einstein.
What quality do you admire most in other people?
Integrity is what matters most.
What’s your favorite thing to do in Denver?
Coming from South Florida for the last 26 years, I enjoy getting outside and walking through my neighborhood (Hilltop) and its many parks. Each change in season brings a new light, new smells and a fresh perspective.
What are your hobbies?
I love music. Listening to it, playing it, going to concerts. I’ve played guitar for over 40 years and have a vintage guitar collection.
Bucket list destination?
No single place. Just visit as many of the great cities of the world as we can. London, Paris, Rome, Madrid, Buenos Aries, Rio de Janiero, Sydney, Tokyo, Prague, Vienna to name more than a few!
What are you thankful for?
The opportunities I have been afforded in life. You cannot take people or things for granted ……you must be humbly thankful for what you do have and understand what are the true metrics that make up success.
