At the age of 13, Pres received his first award for salesmanship and customer service delivering newspapers at the crack of dawn. Later, while attending college at the State University of Albany (SUNYA,) he began his courtship with the corporate world while moonlighting on his Bachelor Degree studies. Not afraid of hard work and used to rolling up his sleeves he was quickly promoted through the ranks at UPS (United Parcel Services,) from package loader to management. Pres completed his degree and that same year began his sales career employed by Andersen Windows and Doors. A career spanning nearly 17 years. The life of an outside sales representative was challenging and allowed him the opportunity to finely craft his sales and marketing skills. Eventually one of his building supply company dealers made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. He leapt at the chance to take on the role of Product Sales Manager for ProBuild/Builders First Source and enjoyed working with them for 6 years.
If you ask Pres his reason “WHY,” he will tell you that he has six reasons to get out there every day and deliver excellence to his customers!

He freely admits the role of parent and husband are the cornerstones of his life.
