“The quality of leadership, more than any other single factor, determines the success or failure of an organization.”— Fiedler and Chemers in Improving Leadership Effectiveness

At Nathaniel, the leadership team, comprised of Frank Andolino and Bart Noto, are personally and directly involved in every company project. To paraphrase Peter Drucker, the role of leadership is to lift an employee’s vision to high sights, to raise his or her performance to a higher standard, and to help build individuals beyond their normal limitations. This is the focus of Nathaniel’s leadership team…working to exceed customers’ expectations on every project every day.

Frank Andolino, President/CEO

As president and CEO of Nathaniel Development Corporation and its subsidiary, Nathaniel General Contractors, Frank focuses on the site development, relationship management, new business development, client service and financial sides of the business. Frank devotes much of his time to serving the firm’s client base, identifying properties, developing sites and providing clients with any marketing, financial and legal assistance they may need on their projects. His relentless pursuit of quality and dedication to detail is well known in the community.

Early Career Experience: Prior to founding Nathaniel General Contractors, Frank was a project manager for a civil engineering company where he was involved in the design and development of numerous residential subdivisions throughout Monroe County.

Frank also managed the entire site development of Xerox’s manufacturing complex located in Webster, New York. As the lead civil engineer at the Webster site, Frank was responsible for the installation of a survey monument system, which provided the means to locate and construct the infrastructure, buildings and parking lots in place today. He was also responsible for all site inspections.

Frank extended the use of his civil engineering and surveying skills when he changed his focus to the development of single-family homes in suburban subdivisions. He later entered into real estate sales when he became the founder and co-owner of Century 21 Red Coach Realty, in Pittsford, New York. He founded Nathaniel in 1981.

Community Involvement: In recent years, Frank has become very involved in raising money to send under-served youngsters ages 5 to 14 to summer camp. Most of the children who attend camp live in neighborhoods where Nathaniel has constructed numerous single- and multiple-family homes. Representing PathStone Corporation, a local not-for-profit and one of Nathaniel’s long-term partners, Frank initiates, funds and executes the “Make Someone Smile!” fundraising effort each year through his direct contact with suppliers, businesses and individuals in the Greater Rochester area. Over the years, he has personally raised tens of thousands of dollars for this worthy cause. In 2012 alone, he raised over $50,000.

Bart J. Noto, Executive Vice President

With more than 40 years experience in the residential and commercial construction and remodeling industries, Bart brings a wealth of knowledge across all aspects of the building trades. However, Bart’s greatest passion is in historic rehabilitation and insurance loss restoration. Bart earns high praise from clients for his finesse in transforming severely damaged or outdated structures into functional, modern facilities that meet the needs of their owners beautifully.
 
At Nathaniel, working in partnership with Frank Andolino, President, he provides strategic leadership relative to construction operations, business planning and overall project oversight; day-to-day project management on select engagements; and quality assurance across all projects the company undertakes.
 
Bart’s project management history is quite diverse. He’s led large-scale residential development, commercial development, renovation and restoration projects for a wide array of clients. He has also played a key role in high-profile renovations, most notably Cloisters at the Meadows, Pinnacle Apartments, Bradmar Village, Stonewood Village, Monica Place, Susan B.
