Since co-founding The LiRo Group in 1984, Rocco has molded the firm from a small group specializing in construction administration, to one of the top construction management and full-service engineering firms in the nation.
From the beginning, Rocco has applied a simple, yet highly effective business philosophy: hire the best people, cross train them in various disciplines, and continuously support their professional development. Following this blueprint has resulted in a motivated, loyal and versatile staff that provide technical excellence and personal service – the hallmarks of LiRo’s success.
Rocco’s leadership and contribution to the engineering profession have been recognized repeatedly by numerous organizations, highlighted by his being named as Engineer of the Year by the New York State Society of Professional Engineers.
