Mongiovi & Son plumbing crew member cores concrete wall for two new fire lines.


“ You have to be professional and do an excellent job that you can be proud of. And always keep learning.


I still learn every day.” - Rick Mongiovi


When asked what career advice he’s given to his sons that he would also share with others, Rick replies, “I want people to know that you don’t have to go to college to make it. We’re really short on tradesmen today—good, honest, quality tradesmen are needed everywhere.” He adds, “But some people do need to go to college. I have a daughter who is a journalist, and she needed a college education for that kind of job. But college isn’t everything, especially in this industry.” The Mongiovis often attend Career Day events at local schools to share how people can obtain successful, well-paid careers in the building and construc- tion industry—even without a college degree.


Randy and Ricky are both fathers now, a milestone that helps them feel an even greater sense of appreciation for their dad’s mentorship as he prepares them to run the busi- ness one day. Ricky shares one piece of wisdom that he would like to pass down to his own son. “You have to have a good work ethic and have open eyes and ears to everyone around you. Getting along with different types of people is important, too.” But Ricky doesn’t plan to force his son into the family business. “Whatever inspires him, whatever he wants to do in life I’m going to support. My dad didn’t push me to do plumbing, but he did encourage me to at least give it a try to see if it was a good fit for me. Turns out, it was.”


Rick concludes: “I wanted my sons to know that the people you’re providing service for are important. You have to be professional and do an excellent job that you can be proud of. And always keep learning. I still learn every day.”


It is this spirit of excellence and openness to knowledge that continues to propel the Mongiovi legacy forward.
