In the spotlight: Anthony DeLaurentis
Say hello to the community’s new environmental services director, Anthony DeLaurentis! Anthony joined the team in November 2018 and has been staying busy ever since.
“My role here is to oversee the maintenance, housekeeping, laundry and grounds departments. I also make decisions on renovations needed in town homes and through the tower, hiring contractors, getting bids and overseeing projects to completion,” said Anthony.
While that may seem like a lot of work on his plate, Anthony wouldn’t have it any other way.
“I am a custom cabinet maker by trade but also knowledgeable in electrical, plumbing, drywall and taping, ceramic tile work and painting. I recently received my certification as a home inspector. This was something I had an interest in doing with all my experience in building maintenance and may be something to keep me busy after retirement, lol,” said Anthony.
For now, Anthony is happy right where he is.
“I enjoy my new position. There’s always lots going on and I have a great team here in all departments,” said Anthony.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Anthony moved to Great Bend, Kan., in 1991, where he started his journey in healthcare maintenance. He moved to Salina in 1996, where he was hired as maintenance supervisor at Holiday Resort and met his significant other, Joyce. The couple has two children, Vincent and Emily, and a puppy, Coco. In his free time, Anthony enjoys boating, fishing, hunting and camping with friends and family.
