Our Founder

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Robert is the stereotypical Brooklyn Italian, at times. From the time he was a child he would go to Manhattan, fascinated with dreams of the big city life. Going against family wishes to stay in the neighborhood and work for their business his god mother helped him sneak off to the city to pursue his dreams. At 18 he moved to Manhattan using every penny he had to get a small studio apartment on the Lower East Side, before it was the cool place to live. With dreams of becoming a chef he received a degree in culinary arts and business management from The New York Restaurant School. Excelling in the culinary arts he was placed in a top internship with Francois Payard, soon to be hired full time. One year into his culinary adventure he realized that it was not for him, wanting more interaction with patrons. So he decided to move onto his second passion, fashion. Next stop Madison Avenue!

 

After applying at every designer store from 5th Avenue to Madison Avenue he was soon was hired with the Personal Shopping VIP program at the flagship Saks Fifth Avenue. From there he worked in every aspect of luxury fashion from Versace to Michael Kors and Max Mara to Celine. He has had the opportunity to open 7 Flagships locations for various labels in New York, Miami and Los Angeles. Deciding to move on to the next phase of his life he stuck with Haute Couture but moved into the floral and event industry as the Director of Retail and Business Development at L’Olivier Floral Atelier.With his connections in fashion he continued his partnerships with Fashion Houses, High Society, Restaurants and Hotels encouraged by his clients he soon decided to start his own company, taking all his experience thus RC Inc was born and evolved into the full service operation it is.
