I started my career with GAF working as a sales service representative and then advanced to a commercial roofing representative. While at GAF, I earned the President’s Club award and met many great people in the business. In 2005 I joined New Castle Building Products and enjoyed growing the business from the grassroots, I finished my time there as the Vice President of Sales in New England.
I currently serve on the board of the North East Roofing Contractors Association and actively participate in NRCA events. The North East Roofers and Contractors Expo, International Roofing Expo, and RCI Expo are the most important events, and that is where you’ll find me, keeping up to date with all the new products, methods, manufacturers, and interacting with customers, and making sure I am meeting their needs with the best, state of the art products and information possible.
Before joining Congress Associates, I worked as a Technical Sales Representative for a leading National Commercial Sealants & Waterproofing Manufacturer in this market. My ultra focus is dedicated to the Metro Boston territory.
This accelerates Congress Associates’ ability to cover greater geography and customer base in a timely fashion. As building enclosure specialists, we fully support our manufacturers with business development efforts and our customers to achieve optimal results from products with proven performance.
Each project must involve a team effort. We are most successful when we collaborate and work alongside all parties toward a common goal and strive to communicate consistently and effectively to let all parties know we have their best interest in mind.
Industrious and entrepreneurial, I come from an established family business and have been involved in product sales and marketing. I graduated from the University of Rhode Island and my focus will be Southern New England.
While at the university I was twice elected as president of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity Rhode Island University chapter, this experience greatly helped to develop my leadership and organizational skills. The knowledge gleaned from representing and overseeing a 90-person organization will benefit me well in the roofing manufacturing industry.
As building enclosure specialists, Congress Associates supports our manufacturers with business development efforts and our customers to achieve optimal results from products with proven performance. I am honored to be the newest addition to the sales team to bring greater advantages to our business partners and customers.
