Chris Constantino - President
Chris spent his childhood summers sweeping the floors in Camio's Hyde Park workshop and going on the crew’s morning English muffin run. Many years, and more cups of coffee than you can count, later Chris is now the President and co-owner of Camio Custom Cabinetry.
Chris graduated from Bentley University in 1990 with a degree in Accounting and spent two years working for a CPA firm. When Camio expanded to its new headquarters in Weymouth in 1991, he joined the company for three years to modernize the computer and accounting systems and develop the company's marketing strategy. During this time he passed the Massachusetts CPA exam and left to work in the account field to complete the requirements for his Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certificate.
After earning his CPA certificate, Chris worked as a Financial Controller in the private sector for several years, but eventually he found himself drawn again to the family business. In 2004, Chris returned to Camio as Vice President of Marketing to expand Camio's presence throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic region. It wasn't long before the company grew and his role evolved to Vice President of Operations. Chris and Michael Shea purchased the business in 2011.
Chris was recently accepted into the Small Business Association Emerging Leaders program. He has served on the Board of Directors for the Massachusetts' chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association for three years.
Chris played hockey from the time he could strap on skates all the way through his years on the Bentley University hockey team. These days you are more likely to find him cycling around New England. His bike treks have included riding from Boston to New York three times in the Boston-New York AIDS Ride, Boston to Vermont in the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Ride in honor of his late mother, completing the Pan Mass Challenge ten times, as well as two trips up Mount Washington in the annual Mt. Washington Bicycle Hill Climb race.
Chris's two children, Connor and Celia, have kept him busy the last 13 years, but he still found time to make a real difference in his community. In 2000, Chris founded Trips For Kids- Boston fundraising, organizing, promoting, and operating mountain biking trips for underprivileged children throughout the Boston area. In 2003, Chris was awarded the Neighborhood Hero Award from the Massachusetts Governor’s Committee on Physical Fitness and Sports and also the Boston Celtics Heroes Among us Award for his work with Trips For Kids, as well as for raising over $50,000 for various charities on cycling rides.
Michael, like so many in the family, grew up in the business. His natural talent for woodwork was obvious from the beginning. Donald taught him everything he knew and, it wasn't long before Michael was teaching an old dog new tricks. He is a perfectionist and an artist. During a break or at the end of a long day, you could find Michael carving a beautiful, intricate wooden ornament or tiny vase no larger than your hand. Clients see his artistic abilities in custom jobs where he will hand carve one-of-a-kind details in the molding or trim of a cabinet, design antiqued or contemporary stains and finishes or even build furniture-like pieces to complete a look.
Mike is the first person in the door and the last person out, but when he isn't elbow deep in saw dust, he spends his time with his wife, Jill, and two children, Katelyn and Kyle. Of course, much of the time he is busy renovating their lovely home in Walpole.
As the company and industry has evolved, Michael has kept up to speed on the newer machinery. Most recently he attended a week-long training to learn the ins and outs of the company's new CNC at the manufacturer's, Biesse, facility in Charlotte, NC.
In the years since Michael became co-owner of Camio, he has ventured out of the shop into new territory and has been spotted on occasion at the Camio booth at trade shows and industry meetings. But it won't be long before he'll be back doing what he does best, working with the guys in the shop making the best, sturdiest most perfect and beautiful cabinets you can ever hope to find.
