About The President
Chris Morello began to shape his work ethic during his 12 year commitment to corporate office furniture. Throughout those years, he served in various roles as Foreman, Dispatcher, Field Supervisor, Operations Manager, and Project Manager. As a Foreman, his primary responsibility was to oversee as many as 35 workers on a project while working on 3 floors at a time. As Field Supervisor, he was responsible for up to 20 jobs in a day and as many as 150 workers in the field. Chris worked on many projects for Bank of America, Cisco, Oracle, Yahoo, and a few high security clearance projects for other Silicon Valley companies. He eventually landed a promotion to Project Management and collected the various attributes and discipline to successfully orchestrate the most complex jobs. Chris developed an acute ability to plan, organize, and manage his projects while listening closely to the client's needs and ensured those needs would be met. His roots in the corporate world would later prove valuable even outside of office furniture.
In 2006 and after the arrival of his son, Chris made the decision to embark on his own dream. An entrepreneur and designer at heart, he envisioned working in the construction industry to specifically remodel kitchens and bathrooms. His attraction to interior design, style and function along with his project management work ethic would partner well with this endeavor.
Chris is a licensed General Contractor who is now recognized for this integrity and dedication to high quality craftmanship and customer service. He has hand selected a team of hard working professionals, most of whom have been in the construction industry for over 20 years. Chris has been a South Bay Area citizen for over 30 years and currently resides in San Jose with his wife and son. His son, Riley, can occasionally be found on the job site, pointing at the things he wants accomplished, demanding to be in charge of the broom, and reminding everyone that he could be the future of PortItalia Construction.
