Veritas Award Recipient

Gary Bonelli

Owner and CEO of Bonardi Construction

Gary Bonelli is the Owner and CEO of Bonardi Construction, a leading retail and commercial contractor in NYC. While learning all he could about the operation, Gary developed a fondness in providing personalized customer service, and was very influential in growing the business by leaps and bounds, as the company had more than tripled its customer base. By the late 1980’s, Mr. Bonelli and his father, Rudolph, began to invest in real estate. Together with their staff and crew, many of the properties were renovated to perfection or rebuilt for maximum usage. A man of faith, Gary takes sharing his time, talent and treasure to new heights in the work that he conducts and donates to the Dioceses of Brooklyn and Queens, and their parishes. Over the years he and his family have been strong supporters of the Alive in Hope Foundation, St. Mary’s Kids, and more. Today, Gary and his wife Suzanne reside in Whitestone, Queens, with their two children – Robert and Victoria.
