Mike Giovanone, CBP
President & CEO
Mike's entry into the pool business in 1972 was a summer job while attending Bishop Gibbons High School in Schenectady, NY. Upon graduating from Saint Michael's College in 1977 Mike was promoted to Vice President of Carmen-Goody Imperial Pools in Colonie, NY. Mike purchased Concord Pools in 1980, which at the time was a small in-ground pool builder installing 30-40 pools a year.
During the 80's under Mike's leadership, Concord Pools grew to be the nation's #1 Heldor Pool Dealer, installing nearly 500 pools in 1988. Upon the demise of several of the major steel pool manufacturers in the late 80's, Mike teamed with Pacific Pools of Latham, NY. Along with his staff, Mike revolutionized the local pool industry and co-patented the famous I-Brace. Now the largest Pacific Pool dealer in the Country, Concord Pools is recognized as the undisputed leader in swimming pool installation and design with over 10,000 in-ground pools within the Capital District.
Mike resides in Saratoga Springs with his wife Debbie.
