Richard V. Poyant
Richard joined the company as a full time sale representative in 1982 after earning an MBA from Northeastern University. Having been “born into a family business”, truly enjoying the creative process and believing in bringing customers to the door of their clients, Richard’s legacy to become the third generation Poyant to lead the family business was inevitable.
Richard’s company experience began in his early teen years sweeping floors and washing trucks, and carried through into his school and college years when he learned both service and installation first hand. These opportunities provided Richard an appreciation and understanding of the aspects of the family business from the ground up.
The company has continued to grow in sales, territory and customer base focusing on a family tradition of continuous investment in the business through staff development, state of the art equipment and facilities improvements.
Currently Richard serves on the board of the International Sign Association, Board of Directors of the Rhode Island Sign Association, a member of the Business Advisory Council for St. Luke’s Hospital, a long standing member of the New Bedford and Fall River Chambers of Commerce and a member of the Northeast States Sign Association. He had served as Vice President and Board Member of Downtown New Bedford, Inc. for over 10 years.
