Riccardo Leoni is a construction professional who has worked on major residential and commercial renovations in both New York and Italy. He understands every aspect of design, as well as various constuction techniques, which allows him to collaborate seamlessly with owners, architects and interior designers, anticipate issues, and deliver beautiful and distinctive homes and commercial spaces that meet project design and budget goals. Riccardo started his career following with great enthusiasm in his Italian family’s footsteps by working in their construction business – a 60-year legacy that began with his great-grandfather. After working as a project manager and estimator, and later successfully running many aspects of the company’s operations and overseeing personnel, he was appointed CEO of a major subsidiary at the age of twenty-six. After four years of helming the family business, Riccardo decided it was time to strike out on his own and create his own business by joining forces with Flavia Portugal to open their New York interior design boutique. Riccardo was born and raised in Italy and has been living in New York City since 2005. He has a degree in Finance from the European School of Economics.
