Additionally, Tony served as a longtime board member for NY Helmets to Hardhats, an organization dedicated to helping Veterans transition to careers in the trades. His MCAA service included time as the Association Executives Council Chair, a Board of Directors Member, and Executive Leadership Initiative Chair.

During his time at MCANY, Tony fostered a truly positive work environment for his staff and navigated the ups and downs in the industry with finesse. He is known for always working with a good attitude and an even better sense of humor.

In an announcement to MCANY members, the association thanked Tony for his dedication, wisdom, and guidance over the years. “His mentorship and kindness have made a lasting impact on all of us. We are also so very thankful for Tony’s wife, Jeanne Saporito, and all she did to support Tony and MCA over the years.”

Tony expressed his gratitude and enthusiasm for what’s next is an announcement to fellow association executives:

“Thank you all for many great years, and a few difficult ones. I’ve learned so much from many of you and I thank you for that, and for the friendship and camaraderie forged over the years. For those of you who are relatively new to the industry, best wishes to you. For those who I have known for many years, I’ll miss you, but excited for what is next.”

Tony will hand the reins over to Shane McMorrow, MCANY’s Assistant Vice President for the last 12 years, on June 30.
