A disabled veteran who served as a Second Lieutenant during the Gulf War, his extensive leadership experience, and experience has helped strategically mobilize numerous construction companies and joint venture partners in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Australia to quickly rebuild communities after storms and catastrophic events, also helping companies and contractors learn how to earn millions in new revenues and profit centers in the process.
Currently, Anthony and his SVG Team provide training systems, estimating programs, industry specific contracts, forms and documents, as well as remote and onsite coaching and consulting packages to thousands of owners of contracting companies: General Contracting, Roofing, and Restoration companies in the U.S, Canada and Australia. During the winter of 2014, Anthony and his SVG team spent 2 months in Gold Coast, and Brisbane Australia launching the first international joint venture and helped bring the U.S. insurance restoration model to Contractors in Australia, which like the United States, experiences large catastrophes, property damage and insured losses on an annual basis.

Anthony’s ultimate long term vision is to bring the proven SVG business model to a global network of joint venture partners and contractors operating in the $100B+ insurance restoration industry and eventually take the entire network public through a traditional IPO with his partner, Neil Reithinger, of Eventus Advisory Group.
Prior to launching SVG, Anthony was Founder and CEO of Abelard Construction from 2001 to 2012. His “speed to market” mentality was a driving factor to Abelard’s rapid and expansive growth to $173M+ in revenues and 18 offices nationwide in just under 12 years. One of the driving factors of that growth was his sales and marketing expertise, as well as his relentless commitment to operational excellence and implementation of the Abelard “blueprint” at each office. In 2001, he started this company in the basement of his house with card table, 4 folding chairs, some market literature and a few salespeople, and 10 years later grew it to almost 18 states and approximately $173M in revenues.
Recently, Anthony authored and published “Win the Game” Succeeding Big in the insurance Restoration Industry. This the first-ever, comprehensive 350-page book for contractors, industry entrepreneurs looking to get started or scale their company in this explosive $100B+ industry.
