Meet Our Team

Rick-JohnsonRick Johnson – Co-Owner
rick@rsglazing.com
Ext. 4342

Rick has over 35 years in the glazing industry.  For the past 20 years his main focus has been on estimating and managing commercial projects that range from basic storefront entry systems to very complicated curtainwall systems. He has completed several design build projects which includes wineries, schools, and private residences in the Napa Valley. He has extensive knowledge of many different glazing applications and products which helps our clients find the right fit for their projects.  Spending 10 of the 35 years as a journeyman glazier and having extensive field knowledge, Rick is able to partner with his clients and help them to be proactive in addressing any field challenges.  All of these skills help our clients to have successful, on time, quality, and complete projects.  Since the start of R&S in 2004 we have completed over 400 commercial projects and our business has continued to grow. I believe that this is because we partner with our clients to procure whatever glazing products they need then have them installed on the job promptly, professionally, and within budget.

Shannon has been in the building and glazing industry for 26 years.  I am currently responsible for financial oversight of operations, marketing, and some staff management.  As an owner I have passed on my experience in plan take off, preparation of the submittals, creating a schedule of values, reviewing contract documents, and scheduling, to our team. I have also emphasized and modeled the importance of visiting jobsites to plot progress, addressing ASI’s, RFI’s, CPE’s, CFM’s and change orders to our project management team. From ordering to managing and supervising the installations I am constantly thinking ahead to make sure we get the job done right the first time. I will always go the extra mile to make sure that our portion of your job runs as smoothly as possible. I am a solution oriented thinker so that if and when a problem does occur we are quick to solve it.

Ricci Middling – Foreman Glazier (The Main Man),

Ricci has been working with glass for the past 33 years. He started working at his uncles’ glass shop at the age of 15. He continued to grow and learn a diverse number of glazing systems and other residential window replacement techniques for the next 16 years in local glass shops. In 1999 he joined the Local 718 Glaziers Union and worked up until he became part of the R&S Family in 2005. He has been an incredible addition to our team ever since. Ricci has an excellent reputation with our General contractors out in the field. He is able to meet the demands of tight schedules and communicate and solve any issues that arise in the field by partnering with the superintendents instead of becoming their adversary. His experience out in the field is priceless and a tremendous part of our success and excellent reputation.

He manages all aspects of a project from the initial review of plans and specs all the way to the completion and closeout. His time as a glazier has given him the knowledge and experience to meet the needs of any and all customers, from homeowners needing simple repairs to contractors in need of a commercial glazing project. Ryan’s attention to detail and customer centered focus further enable R&S to give their customers the experience they expect and deserve when doing business with us.

Sheridan Gonsalves – Project Manager and Estimator
Sheridan@rsglazing.com
EXT 4351

Sheridan Gonsalves went into welding and fabrication out of high school.  This gave him a great education in math and layout, and he also learned the properties of different types of metals which is useful as most glazing systems have a metal component.  In 2006 his father hired him at his glass shop and his glazing career began.  Working as a glazier under his father’s supervision he learned the residential side of the trade, some light commercial, and eventually specialized in showers and mirrors.  With an eagerness to please and an excitement for the glazing industry he is a great partner to achieve success in your glazing projects
