Brian has a background in public safety, working as a police officer beginning in 1981 with NYPD for almost five years before transferring to Amityville Village Police in 1985 where he retired as Sergeant 27 years later. Brian also served as Assistant Chief of the Amityville FD from 1990 to 1996 and Chief of Department from 1996 to 1998. He always wanted to open his own business and in 2011 while speaking with the owners of Custom Awards about a plaque order, he discovered that they had planned on selling the business after nearly 22 years. The decision was made to retire from the Amityville PD after nearly 32 years in law enforcement and purchase Custom Awards in 2013. Brian was attracted to the company because of the close association with both Police and Fire Departments throughout the metropolitan area. He was also impressed with the attention to detail the owners gave to their work. At Custom Awards we strive to produce quality plaques and trophies that stand out among the rest.
