Tony started plumbing when he was very young, working with his father and brother, John Fontecchio IV, in the family business, Johnny's Plumbing & Hydronics in Cañon City, Colorado, and he has been a licensed plumber since 1994. As a key member of the management team at Johnny's Plumbing & Hydronics, Tony has managed over 70 plumbers working on residential and commercial plumbing projects.
In 1998, Tony, along with his brother and father, founded a decorative kitchen and bath wholesale business. In 2002, they incorporated as Bella Vie Kitchen & Bath Supply Company.
At Bella Vie, Tony uses his vast plumbing and construction knowledge to help customers with all aspects of their home improvement projects. He knows and understands the complete building process and has been heavily involved in the construction of thousands of residential homes and commercial projects from the ground up. This knowledge allows him to easily communicate with builders, plumbers, architects, and engineers from blueprint to completion. Additionally, Tony is responsible for researching and managing product compatibility and installation requirements, providing technical assistance, troubleshooting, product sourcing, and shower system design, as well as customer relations and sales.
In his free time, Tony flies large scale RC airplanes and helicopters, and he enjoys luxury watches, wine tasting, sports, and spending valuable time with his wife and three kids. He is also self-proclaimed pioneer of snowboarding, starting in 1987 with his first wood-constructed Burton snowboard. To this day, you will still find him flying down the steepest terrain.
