Representing pioneering technologies to the Offshore and Subsea industries since 1971
"Previous to C.A. Richards, I spent 20+ years as a sales professional, ultimately heading up commercial departments with responsibility for overall business development across Technology and Engineering organizations. Over the years I have worked with many personalities and stakeholders with differing views on how to increase sales. In larger organizations I often experienced barriers to sales put up by various departments & colleagues usually focusing on the technical specifications or nervousness around lead times. These opinions inevitably affected how the sales & marketing department operated. C.A. Richards was born to influence communication and strategy, a fresh pair of external eyes, to assist in growth and ensure that we enjoy ourselves along the way." ~Shannon Giagnorio, Founder & CEO
"Nearly 30 years ago, after realizing my plans of being a player in the NHL weren't going to work out, I got my feet wet (Dad joke intended) in my offshore career as a diver. After that, I transitioned into the ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) side of the business, starting with Rentals & Service before spending over a decade as the Proposals and Sales Manager for Helix Robotics Solutions. I love leading this group of young professionals while connecting our customers with the some of the best technologies the industry has to offer." ~Tom Giagnorio, President
"I have been with C.A. Richards & Associates since 1977! In my role as Office Manager, I love making transactions run smoothly for our customers." ~Kim Pribilski, Office Manager
"I love using my degree in Marketing and Business to help connect the solutions C.A. Richards' clients provide with the challenges our customers face. My background as a Crew Chief in the U.S. Air Force helps me to appreciate the need for good service and communication within the supply chain.
C.A Richards creates a smooth link between buyers and suppliers for stress free solution identification and delivery." ~Cody Brown, Business Development Associate
"I am MBA graduate of the University of North Texas. The knowledge gained by my degrees comes handy in complex and challenging situations, allowing me to provide the best possible service to our clients. During my time at UNT I was voted as a football team captain by my peers and received the Commissioner’s Academic Medal. As a leader of the football team, I guided them to multiple bowl games and a conference championship. The communication and teamwork skills developed during this time translate well to the Sottomarine team today. I enjoy using them to promote clear, proactive, positive communication with clients, customers and internal team members. I am confident that I can help our clients achieve great results in any situation!"
