Filipe Monteiro of Connecticut is a man who knows how to achieve goals. Originally from Portugal, he grew up as an active child and joined the Portuguese army at sixteen years old. After boot camp, he was put on a special project that allowed him to help a number of different communities around the country. However, by his early twenties, Monteiro had moved to the Unites States.
“At 22 moved to United States did a lot of odd jobs,” said Monteiro. “When having dinner with my best friend he told me that it might be fun to became self-employed.” Although Monteiro had no experience running a business and was still learning the language, he didn’t let those obstacles stop him. He began working with a local builder and studying English. By learning the appropriate skills and working hard, Monteiro’s dream of becoming self-employed came true.
Today, Monteiro is the founder and operator of Monteiro’s Masonry Construction LLC. For over a decade his company has offered building, masonry and construction services to clients in the tristate area. With a focus on both commercial and residential jobs, Monteiro still keeps a tight watch over company operations. “I have a supervisor to assist my workers with construction and I oversee all projects.”
Although his work as an entrepreneur keeps Monteiro busy, it has certainly paid off. He spends his free time at a house by the beach and is involved with real estate investments in the Bridgeport area. Filipe Monteiro of Connecticut lives in Milford with his dog Brooklyn.
