    Owner

    A native Long Islander, John has always been passionate about home improvement. While he had a very successful career in corporate America, John always dreamed of owning and running his own business. He decided to invest in his community and open a business of his own. Leveraging his experience from leading business operations, marketing and advertising in the telecommunication space, he was able to bring the highly respected Mr. Handyman franchise to Suffolk County. It has been a dream come true. John is finally able to combine his strong business acumen with his love of home improvement and provide the Huntington and Smithtown communities with an unparalleled and exceptional customer experience for consumers and businesses.
