Bob Dagostino makes headlines for renovating old Hays School
The old Hays School on Mifflin Road is now the home of Dagostino Electronic Services.
If you picked up a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette this morning, you would have came across Dagostino Electronic Services, Inc.!
Diana Nelson Jones wrote a fantastic profile about the decision to set up our company’s headquarters in the old Hays School.
This quote here says it all: “Bob brought me in look at the school and I said, ‘Why don’t we get a renovated space?’ and he said, ‘No, no, this is our headquarters.’ He had a vision.”
Realizing a Vision
In recent years, Pittsburgh Public Schools has refocused their energy towards a consolidation of resources to help deal with a down economy and cuts in education funding.
One man’s loss is another man’s treasure.
Bob Dagostino is the type of business owner who epitomizes vision. Too often when we read about visionaries in business, we illuminate the big titans of business; the Steve Jobs and the Bill Gates; Andrew Carnegie and Andrew Mellon; and countless other examples.
The economy we live in today is a global economy, therefore those titans of business are identifiable for most. But what really gets the economy churning, what really sets American capitalism at the pinnacle of globalization is the visionaries currently in charge of small businesses. Owners with a vision, much like Bob Dagostino.
