“I love everything about my job – from being on-site and working with the project managers – to the day-to-day operations. There’s always something new and exciting coming my way.”
Jeffrey S. Coletto, chief operating officer, is responsible for the day-to-day operations of The Atlantic Group.
Jeff has been with The Atlantic Group for 19 years. For the first two years, he served as a senior project manager and for the past 17 years as the chief operating officer. Jeff is known throughout the company as a great listener and for his friendly, approachable style. His 29 years of experience also includes working as a sales representative at a textile house.
Mike Leiderman, a founding partner of The Atlantic Group and friend, brought him to the company. Jeff says, “What makes The Atlantic Group special is the people. We have longevity here, which makes it a really nice place to come to work. Not many people can say we’re like a family, but here at The Atlantic Group, we are.”
Going above and beyond
When a delivery of wood desks was running late, Jeff had to think fast, since the wood desks were going in the open area and renting furniture was not an option. After several phone calls, the manufacturer came through and the furniture looked great. To this day, he still gets calls to supply the client with whatever furniture requirements they have!
Jeff says, “At The Atlantic Group, we have a lot of community service activities going on throughout the year, which I am happy to be a part of. It gives me the opportunity to give back and do for other people.” Jeff is also actively involved in his church.
Jeff lives in Merrick, New York, with his wife, and he enjoys spending time with friends and family.
