Over the years Michael Damiani has served in a variety of roles at Radco Industries from plant operations to field sales and international sales management before assuming the reigns as Chief Executive Officer. He takes pride in maintaining a clear focus on the company’s business goals while driving the top-down commitment to 100 percent on-time delivery and customer satisfaction. Michael loves the challenges of guiding Radco Industries through the myriad of complexities in today’s business environment and is proud of product excellence achievements that include awards from the U.S. Defense Department and Industry.
Michael earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry from Tufts University (Medford, MA) with an emphasis in neuropsychopharmacology. His initial career direction was toward medicine rather than business, but the challenge of taking a small family business to another level proved too alluring. Without regret, Michael has enjoyed the daily opportunities to apply cutting-edge business theories and a science-based approach to the operations of a mid-size manufacturing company. Radco Industries’ rise in a global marketplace speaks to his skills and accomplishments.
But business doesn’t consume all of Michael Damiani’s time. He and his wife are very involved in raising their two active, grade-school age children, and Michael enjoys applying his athletic experience to serving as head coach for youth football and baseball teams. Beyond family activities, he is an avid golfer, musician and outdoorsman who especially enjoys upland game hunting and target shooting. Michael and his family reside in southwest Florida.
