Executive Staff

Tony Bonaduce, Founder and President, has almost 40 years' experience in the construction industry, doing just about any job that came across his desk. It was this no-job-too-small attitude which initially got Tony in the door at Friendly’s, a relationship which has blossomed into a career and growing company. Since then, Tony has been expanding E.B.S.’s horizons by constantly providing the best service to his clients, treating them like family. When asked about how he got started in construction at all, he recounted his childhood monkey-touch-monolith moment:

“T’was the night before Christmas, when I was about five years old and—although I find it difficult to believe that my brother and I were being little brats as my parents claim—they decided to put coal in our stockings as punishment. Coal was not available at 10:30 on Christmas Eve, though, so as a substitute, my father went out to the garage and cut up blocks of wood to fill our stockings. When we woke in the morning, my brother was extremely disappointed, but I went and got a hammer and nails. I was very content building with the new blocks, and when the presents were later “discovered” in another room, rather than open them, I elected to continue building.” [back to top]

Matt Loring, Vice President of New Construction, has been an E.B.S. team member since 1988. Holding a BS in Business from University of Northern Colorado (Greeley, CO) and an MPA from Oklahoma City University, Matt has proven to be both tremendously capable in the field (have you ever seen a man his age lift that much?) as well as extremely intuitive and observant within the labyrinthine world of estimation and project management. The long hours on the road may be behind this newly-minted family man, but his dedication and persevering work ethic continue on in his role as Vice President. [back to top]

Vahid Walker, Project Management, has spent more than half of his 30-something life in construction, beginning with his father in high school. From there, Vahid has advanced his career within and outside the classroom, earning a Business degree from Drexel University (Philadelphia, PA) and moving from labor to project supervising finally to the role of project manager. For the past few years, Vahid has been working in his current role, synthesizing his experience in the field with his time as a supervisor to give the best management to each job all the while keeping morale up within his team. No matter how difficult the work, Vahid is able to keep light and still accomplish his goals working for E.B.S. [back to top]

Frank Choo has over 30 years’ of experience in the design and construction industries. Projects include new construction and interior renovations of retail, restaurants, hospitality, pharmaceutical, and office spaces. Frank worked for Toys R Us, Inc. as a Construction Project Manager in the 1980’s and later as Director of Design and Construction for Barnes & Noble, Inc. in the 1990’s.  In 2003, he founded Global Arch, LLC., a design and consulting firm based in Manhattan that performed design and project management services for national clients.  Frank has a Bachelor’s degree in Construction/Architectural Technology from New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, New York.   While at NYIT (over 30 years and 30 pounds ago!), Frank was on the school’s tennis team and received the ‘Most Improved Player’ award! He now plays golf when time allows, but doesn’t plan on winning any awards anytime soon! [back to top]

Project Supervisors

Tom Ferentinos, Project Supervisor, has defined his over 30-year career in construction with a creative eye and a penchant for turning over projects for which blueprints hardly do justice. From keeping the roofs at Fort Monmouth in top shape over our soldiers' heads to crafting the high-end retail stores which have become a mainstay of E.B.S., Tom uses his BA in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts (NYC) to make each project a work of art. From high school to the current partnership in construction, Tony and Tommy continue to prank each other, yet somehow the work is done on time! [back to top]

Roger Fleischmann, Project Supervisor, has been in the construction business since 1975, first erecting homes with his father and uncle, then moving into tenant build-outs for a commercial developer in 1979. Since then, he has rounded out his skillset in every capacity of construction, from estimating to project management and general contracting. The decades of “hard knock” schooling have provided Roger the experience that makes him such an asset to the E.B.S. team. [back to top]

Phil McConnell, Project Supervisor, attended Monmouth County Vocational School (Keyport, NJ) and Ryder College (Lawrenceville, NJ) for Architectural and Mechanical Drafting, before plunging into drawing and building for over 28 years. Since his beginning, Phil has worked on a wide array of projects and his addition to the E.B.S. team has been a welcome one. How he finds a way to raise all of his children and still keep a job with us, we may never know. [back to top]

Jeff Cooke, Project Supervisor, another artist in overalls, decided long ago that while he would earn his BA in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute (NYC), a desk job would not be for him, though he may end up in the pool at the company party. Primarily self-taught in construction, Jeff’s keen eyes and strong workmanship have helped him rapidly progress from sheetrock laborer to a project supervisor, a role from which he has been providing critical support for many years. These attributes make him all the better as one of the job leaders here at E.B.S. [back to top]

 

Office Staff

Bill Iler, General Counsel, has been a consistent asset to EBS with his commercial legal experience. Earning a law degree from New York Law School has proven his mediation and litigation expertise in the areas of construction defect and environmental litigation, among others. Coupled with his experience managing and auditing law firms in the insurance industry, Bill's personal interest in construction, architecture, and conservation brings a warm, welcome touch to the company. If anyone is interested, he always has a line on the best food in the area. [back to top]

Stephanie Darby, Office Manager, is responsible for the coordination of all the various parts of the company, ensuring that the paperwork and field world work in unison for the benefit of our clients and our projects. Stephanie graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a BA in Professional Writing (Pittsburgh, PA) and she uses every bit of her talent to ensure that inside and out of the office, the message is loud and clear. And the message is: “Did you get in those expense reports yet?” [back to top]

Shannon Hill, Project Coordination, has been in the construction trade for a decade now and shows no signs of slowing her growth. Started off in the industry working for her father's business, Shannon now works at E.B.S. coordinating the initial stages of a project as well as providing support for the Project Supervisors. As she was mentored by her father, so now does she serve as office den mother to us all. With a background in both residential and commercial construction, Shannon's skill set has been a tremendous boon to E.B.S.' ability to bid and complete jobs promptly and professionally.

Chris Darby, Technology Consultant and Office Support, having earned his BA and MA in History from Seton Hall University (South Orange, NJ), has returned to the E.B.S. staff after an educational interlude. Chris is turning his research, writing, and web development talents towards spearheading the development of E.B.S.' online presence. In between the tasks comprising his goal of catapulting E.B.S. into the 21st century, he assists with estimation, bid solicitation and debating American history and politics with the President (of E.B.S.), as well as various other tasks to ensure the office runs smoothly.
