In 1983 Arnold founded his first company, Watermatic Irrigation, over the next decade he grew the company and sold it to begin a new business. In 1993 Arnie purchased a Commercial Cleaning account and started a small office cleaning business with 3 part time employees. Over the next 25 years this company evolved into Restoration Experts of NY, with its main office located in Ronkonkoma. He holds top restoration credentials and is a Master Restorer of Fire, Smoke & Water Damage.
Being the son of a Deacon, the importance of faith and service were impressed upon him from a young age. Arnie was a CYO soccer coach and a Scout Leader for ten years as the Chairman of St. Joseph’s Boy Scout Troop 272. He has been a member of the Ronkonkoma Chamber of Commerce 25 years and during his tenure as President he started the Ronkonkoma Street Fair.

Arnie has also gone on 12 humanitarian missions to Haiti to provide much needed water wells, medical equipment, satellite communications and solar panels in 4 different villages.
After his son’s friend, Andrea Giattino, was killed by a drunk driver while on their way home from a Rotary Event, Justin and his Rotary family founded The Simple Hope Foundation to combat drunk driving & substance abuse deaths. The Simple Hope Foundation works to make our roads safer by funding research, creating awareness and helping to “make drunk driving matter”.
Arnold is a recipient of Rotary International’s Service Above Award, he supports the Rotary Foundation as a major donor, Paul Harris society and Bequest society member.
Arnie’s passion of giving back to the community, locally as well as internationally, with his whole heart, his time, his talent, his leadership and his family is an inspirational source to everyone!!
