He helps me feel validated in certain de- cisions that I make.”


The Mongiovi sons didn’t always want to work with their dad. When he was 18, Randy was set on moving across the country to Los Angeles to attend film school, but his dad asked him to stick around and work at the companies instead—an option that would allow Randy to be near his family, an important consider- ation for him.

It’s like Friday night football—you’ve prepared for it and you’re excited, and then you get to perform and show the custom- ers what you know about their jobs and what you’re going to do.”
