Meet The Team

Frank R. Coppola, III

President / Owner

 f.coppola@coppolabrothersllc.com

Frank R. Coppola, III is a graduate of Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania with a degree in Business Management. He enjoyed a nine-year successful career as a Commodities and Equities Trader with a Series 7,55, & 63 certification. Coppola intended to remain on Wall Street; however, he literally got stressed out of the grind. The “entrepreneurial spirit” kicked in and he decided to venture into construction. Coppola Brothers LLC was born 2015. The Coppola brothers are Frank and Miranda Coppola’s sons; Mitchell and Joseph Coppola (Frank does not have a brother).

Frank Coppola founded the American Tae Kwon Do Academy (ATKDA) in 1990, which is still thriving today. Frank is currently a 7th Degree Black Belt having continuously trained since 1986. He has proudly promoted 13 students to the rank of 5th Degree! Each one has been with him for over 20 years. He has also promoted over 206 people to the rank of First Degree and has taught at the Somerset Hills YMCA since 1993.

The secret weapon to Coppola Brothers’ success has been an extensive vetting process by Frank’s yellow Labrador retriever, Bentley. Simply put, if Bentley doesn’t like you, then Coppola Brothers is not the contractor for you. Bentley, with a single paw, transformed the company culture to embrace “dog friendly people”. Frank or Bentley would be happy to elaborate on this in person. Frank’s dog moments happen every day when Bentley reminds him TODAY is the best day ever!

Miranda Coppola

Company Officer / Co-Owner

Miranda was born and raised in the Netherlands where she got a degree in Economic Marketing. She came to the United States in 1992 as an Au-pair for a family in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Four years later she met her now favorite husband Frank and they’ve been married since 1997. Coppola Brother LLC is named after their two sons, Mitchell and Joseph. Once the children were older and each developed their own personalities, Frank and Miranda decided to redesign their company logo. Mitchell, their oldest, is the hammer, he does everything his own, hard way. Joseph is the saw, he’s very sharp.

Miranda taught preschool until her children were born. However, her love for teaching young children never stopped. One of her passions is Tae Kwon Do. She and Frank own a martial arts school called the “American Tae Kwon Do Academy”. In 1998, she decided to start a tots program for martial arts at the Somerset Hills YMCA in Basking Ridge, New Jersey where Frank has been teaching since 1993.

Another one of Miranda’s passions is teaching Jazzercise, she has been a certified instructor at Jazzercise Incorporated since 2009 where she teaches a couple of classes a week. She also loves going on camping trips with her family, including her dog “no-no-baddog” aka Bentley. A favorite dog memory is Bentley barking at the buffaloes on a camping trip out West!

Miranda loves working at Coppola Brothers LLC, not only because it’s her company but she loves to spend time with the family and friends that work with her!

Chad Montalvo

Project & Logistics Manager – Director of North Carolina Operations

Chad has over 20 years of experience in the construction trades. His father was a general contractor and it was his enthusiasm and pride in his work that led Chad to follow in his footsteps. Some of Chad’s earliest memories are of driving with his dad while he pointed out houses his father had built in different neighborhoods. By age 14, Chad decided he wanted to emulate his father and began working with him as often as possible.

Chad’s true passion has been residential construction. He enjoys the feeling of satisfaction you get when making someone’s dream come true and creating something with your hands is a feeling unlike any other. After eight years with Jarow Construction, Chad left to form his own company. With permission and encouragement from his father, Chad used his father’s business name, R. Montalvo Home Improvements, as a tribute and acknowledgement for all that he taught him.

Shortly after that time, Chad received a call from a general contractor that was looking for someone to come and install trim for him on a large renovation project; on this job he met Frank Coppola. It immediately became apparent to Chad that they both stood for the same values; commitment and quality of work. Like any profession, there are areas you enjoy better than others. Chad realized he enjoyed the production/hands on, logistical, problem solving side of the construction trade. Chad had a conversation with Frank that led to a clear role for him at Coppola Brothers. This move freed up Frank to go back to the office and handle the back-end work that he loved and Chad would work in the field and handle the logistical and production work.

Chad thrives in his role as Coppola Brothers. Chad handles, with the help of his Site Supervisors, the day-to-day on-job tasks, logistics, estimating and change orders, quality control, official correspondence, trade management, scheduling and any production tasks. Chad and his wife Liz moved from New Jersey to North Carolina in 2019 as the company expands into the North Carolina market.

Chad has a dog named Alo (pronounced Al-lew). Her name means to support, love, and cherish in Latin. Alo is a rescue dog and it was love at first sight when he saw her. She has gone to work with Chad every day since then. One day Chad expects to turn around and see her holding a hammer. Together she and “no-no bad dog” (Bentley), are the company mascots. If you walk on the job and see either dog, you can expect to find their respective human not far behind.

Michael Witmyer

Project Manager & Site Supervisor

Michael grew up in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania which is known for its talented craftsman and builders. This had a strong influence on Michael and his attention to detail. Michael however didn’t start his career in the construction field. Upon graduating high school, he started working in a Physical Therapist office as well as teaching Yoga and Martial Arts. While he still practices yoga and martial arts, his desire to create and build led him back to the craftsman roots he grew up around. He has been certified as a LEED Green Associate under the U.S. Green Building Council and currently attends the Metro Builders Association monthly gatherings.

Michael has been married for 16 years to his lovely wife Amy and stepson Jay. Michael serves as the “face” of Coppola Brothers acting as our Site Supervisor in New Jersey. He is responsible for working with our contractors to ensure they understand the scope of their jobs and adhere to the Coppola Brothers’ philosophy of focusing on the client’s needs, doing a neat and thorough job, regardless of how big or small the job may be.

One of Michael’s favorite things about starting a new construction project is meeting the owner’s dog and making friends. Since his favorite furry friend Maya passed away last year, he rarely misses an opportunity to connect with every dog he meets. Maya loved to go on hikes where she would stretch her neck out, sniffing each and everything she encountered, earning her the nickname “strechsnifferneck”.

Stuart MacGregor

Project Manager & Site Supervisor

Stuart MacGregor has over 40 years in the construction industry. He is a graduate of the University of Southern Florida in Tampa, where he received his degree in Business Administration. Starting as a young teenager he would frequent construction sites during summer breaks looking for labor jobs. After a short period of time, people around him realized he had a natural talent as a carpenter (Stuart attributes this being good at math, particularly geometry). The following summer season he began working for a “stick framing” contractor. By his third summer he was running his own framing crew.

By the age of nineteen he started a small construction company. Over time he chose finish carpentry over framing. Ten years later he was considered a “Master Carpenter”. He would travel from one job to the next getting hired by General Contractors to fabricate and install every aspect of interior and exterior trim packages on spectacular homes. His small construction company grew, and Stuart’s small company became one of the areas premier General Contractors. Stuart’s portfolio started with Historical renovations eventually migrating to building multi-million dollar estates. He has built schools, churches, restaurants, and a hotel; however, his passion has always been working on detailed residential estates. At the age of 52, he retired and moved to South Florida. Despite being retired, he met Frank Coppola from Coppola Brothers LLC. After speaking with Frank, Stuart got the itch to return to the Construction industry. Stuart came out of retirement and currently heads up the Coppola Brothers LLC Florida division. He is breaking ground on multiple Florida projects.

Stuart had a Chocolate Labrador Retriever named Magoo who was a member of his construction crew traveling with him daily from job-to-job in his truck.

She was able to climb the tree in her family’s front yard, sit patiently at the dinner table and adopt baby mice to ducks to kittens. She soon became Karen’s best listener and by her side through everything and always greeted her with happiness.

For the past nine years, they have spent their time in Hunterdon County, NJ where she worked as a substitute teacher and was employed in a pediatric dental office the last two years. Connie was an active parent and served a two-year term as president of the North Hunterdon Music Assoc., a non-profit parent organization that supports music programs at North Hunterdon High School.

Recently, Connie and Larry relocated to the Raleigh, NC area for Larry’s position in the chemical industry. She is our point of contact as we begin to network and market our services in the Raleigh and outlying areas. Connie brings a strong knowledge of construction and real estate markets to Coppola Brothers.

Connie is a dog lover and grew up with lots of different dogs over the years on the farm. Most often the dogs that came to live on the farm arrived “down the road” as they were dropped off in the country by people who no longer wanted or needed them. One of her fondest memories is the neighbor’s dog, an Alaskan Malamute, coming by daily to check things out. “He thought he owned the place!”
