Mr. Bonvegna has over 22 years of business experience working for such diverse companies as General Electric, Pepperidge Farms and United Distillers & Vintners. He received numerous executive awards, accolades and corporate recognition. His mechanical and carpentry experience started over 32 years ago at the age of nine, when he helped his father build a tool shed and rebuild the family wagon’s engine amongst other projects.
To help supplement college expenses, Richard started and managed Brush and Hammer Painting Company, an Interior/Exterior Painting and Light Carpentry business that helped pay his way through school.
The year was 2001, Richard was in London, England on a corporate business trip when he received a very exciting phone call from his wife, Colleen. She was very proud to announce that their baby, had just taken precious first steps. Richard was extremely proud and at the same time sad. Sad because he knew that if he continued his excessive business travel, the probability of missing more important family moments were inevitable. He wanted to provide his children the same opportunities of a tight family closeness and bonding that his parents instilled on him and his siblings. The executive decision was made to resign from Corporate America and become an Entrepreneur.
