Andy is our Founding Principal and CEO, bringing 24 years of experience and subject matter expertise to the helm of ARM Procurement Advisors.
Prior to founding ARM Procurement Advisors, Andy’s career began with just over a decade at 84 Lumber, developing his work ethic, business and industry knowledge, and sales skills. While there, he became the youngest general manager in the company at the ripe old age of twenty-one, and it gave him the opportunity to manage an outside sales team and act as a sales leader himself. At twenty-eight years old, he was a recruited by The Home Depot to be the Rochester, NY District Manager of Pro Sales. Over the next ten years, he expanded his knowledge into other areas of the real estate industry, eventually building the largest property management key account portfolio at the ‘Depot in the United States.
As a believer in continuous learning, his recent education includes earning and maintaining multiple industry certifications from the National Association of Home Builders, Green Business Certification, Inc, and the U.S. Green Building Council.
He currently holds CAPS (Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist), CGP (Certified Green Professional), CGA (Certified Graduate Associate) from the NAHB, is a TRUE Advisor (Total Resource Use and Efficiency Zero Waste Advisor) from GBCI and is working towards his LEED AP O&M from the USGBC, which he plans to finish by July of 2021.
He grew up in the suburbs around Syracuse, NY, graduating high school from Christian Brothers Academy and studied Marketing and Business Administration during his time at Le Moyne College.
He currently resides in a rural community outside of Rochester on the south shore of Lake Ontario with his wife of 15 years, their 7-year-old son, 13 year old German Shepherd, and a couple of cats.
