Robert was born and raised near Salina, PA, in Westmoreland County. He graduated from Kiski Area High School in 1979, and he has worked in the family business in one form or another since its opening in 1970. He worked Saturdays, summers, and after school for years. He started out washing cars and eventually moved on to the service department. Once he turned 16, he started working in the sales office after school and on weekends. He graduated from Indiana University of PA with a degree in business in 1982 and immediately went to work at Riverview full time. Robert worked at all of the Riverview sales centers but most often alongside his father, Sam, at our Vandergrift headquarters. Upon his father's retirement in the early '90s, Robert was elected to the position of President. In his words, "I am grateful for the opportunity to serve in the position I presently have, and I attribute any success that Riverview or myself has had to the hard and dedicated work of our employees."
