Filipe Monteiro of Connecticut is a small business owner living the American dream. Originally from Portugal, Monteiro now resides in Connecticut where he operates a company called Monteiro’s Masonry Construction. A registered builder servicing the tristate area, Monteiro created the company in his twenties and has been working with clients ever since.
As a young man in Portugal, Filipe Monteiro was always active, physical and good with his hands. During childhood, says Monteiro, he was interested in “volleyball, hiking, soccer, fishing, trapshooting, running, eating and dance.” By the age of sixteen he was ready for an additional challenge. Monteiro entered the Portuguese army. He enjoyed the army because it allowed him to volunteer his time in different communities where he was serving. “Along the way,” says Monteiro, “I was designated to a special project that helped reestablish communities.”
By his early twenties, Monteiro was living in the United States. After a series of odd jobs, he created Monteiro’s Masonry Construction. Satisfying his appreciation of physical work and utilizing his knowledge in the building industry, the company was able to flourish. Monteiro has operated the company for over a decade.
Filipe Monteiro of Connecticut can be found working on building projects big and small throughout the tristate area. His hard work has certainly paid off. Monteiro lives in Milford and has real estate holdings in the Bridgeport area.
