Tony Montanaro has been with Sain for just over four years and was recently promoted to Assistant Project Manager in our Infrastructure Department. Tony learned about the company when he met John Meads, son of Joe Meads, randomly at a wedding and was looking to move to Birmingham at the time. One of the things Tony likes the most about Sain is the “family first” mentality. He sees training new people as a challenge as everyone learns a little differently.

Tony’s favorite project is the Old Farm Lane Extension in Prattville and its interesting egg-shaped roundabout.
