  1. How long have you been a BAMA member? 2 months
  2. What do you like most about being a BAMA member? The opportunity to work and help Manufacturer’s in the Tampa Bay Area with improving their profitability.
  3. Tell us about your company? Stellar Industrial Supply is a Distributor of MRO and Safety Supplies to the manufacturing industry, we have branches throughout the US that support our customer with Supply Chain Management , Process improvements and Safety Initiatives to name a few of our Value Added Services. All of this is to improve Customer Profitability with a highly accountable Documented Cost Saving Program initiated on behalf of our customers.
  4. What do you consider your greatest accomplishment to date? I have worked in this Industry for over 40 years, my wife and I had the opportunity to start our business in 1991. So with 4 month old twins we took the opportunity to start Impact Industrial Supplies. We grew our business for 25 years and realized that the time was right to sell in 2015. Stellar’s CEO and I were friends in this industry and it made sense for us to sell to Stellar, what I am proud of is that all of my Impact employees have benefitted from this merger in their careers with Stellar and that we now have all the resources to be a Valued Preferred Supplier to our customers.
  5. What is the best piece of advice you have ever received? When things get tough, remember that it will be temporary and that what you learn from overcoming will help you later in life. So don’t let failure or tough times beat you, learn and grow from it. I love the following quote: “Everything you want is on the other side of Fear”
  6. What is the most important skill you have developed in your career? Working with others, understanding and listening to others with a mindset to help.
  7. What are your hobbies or interests? Besides my Family, I am Passionate about Baseball and the Tampa Bay Rays, and love to fish. But the last 5 years I have committed myself to Training and competing in Boxing.
