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).
It is worth mentioning that Coppola also 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 proudly has promoted 13 students to the rank of 5th Degree, they have been with him for over 20 years each! 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 named 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 moment happens every day when Bentley reminds him TODAY is the best day ever!

Chad Montalvo

Project & Logistics Manager – Director of North Carolina Operations

Chad has over 20 years of experience in the construction trades. His father was general contractor and it was his enthusiasm and pride in his work that led him to follow in his footsteps. Some of Chad’s earliest memories are driving around with his dad while he pointed out houses his father had worked on and built in different neighborhoods. By 14 Chad, decided he wanted to be like his father and started working with him as often as possible.
Chad’s true passion has always been residential construction. He enjoys the feeling of satisfaction knowing you get to make someone else’s dreams come true and creating something with your hands is unlike any other. After about 8 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 random call from another general contractor that was looking for someone to come and install trim for him on a large addition/renovation project This was the job where Chad met Frank Coppola. It almost immediately became apparent to Chad that they both stood for the same values, commitment and quality of work they put into their jobs for clients. Like any profession, there are areas you enjoy better than others. Chad quickly 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 that Chad would stay in the field and handle the logistical and production work.
Chad thrives in his role as Coppola Brothers; Project Manager. Chad handles, with the help of his Site Supervisors, the day-to-day on site job tasks, logistics, estimating and change orders, quality control, official correspondence, trade management, scheduling and any production related tasks. Chad and his wife Liz moved from New Jersey to North Carolina in 2019 as the company expands into the North Carolina market. He continues to manage all projects for the company as it expands across the country.
Chad has a dog named Alo (pronounced Al-lew). Her name means to support, to love, to 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 lead 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 here 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 passes up 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 we encountered, earning her the nickname “strechsnifferneck”.

Stuart MacGregor

Manager

 s.macgregor@coppolabrothersllc.com

Stuart Mac Gregor has over 40 years in the construction industry. He is a graduate of University of Southern Florida in Tampa, Florida 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 fabrication 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 area’s premier General Contractors. Stuart’s portfolio started with Historical renovations eventually migrating to building mutli-million dollar estates. He also built schools, churches, restaurants, and even a hotel; however his passion has always been detailed residential estates. At the age of fifty two he retired and moved to South Florida. Despite being retired, he met another General Contractor by the name of Frank Coppola from Coppola Brothers LLC. After speaking with Frank, Stuart was starting to get the itch to return to the Construction industry, so Stuart came out of retirement. Stuart currently heads up the Coppola Brothers LLC Florida division and is breaking ground on multiple Florida projects.

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