Angelo Messina – General Manager of Ability Center Goodyear, AZ
Angelo joined the Ability Center team in January of 2015 to open and run our 10th location in Goodyear, Arizona. During his first six months, he assisted with the startup of the new facility and has established the Ability Center in the west valley. He has helped dozens of customers gain their way back to independence.
Angelo completed a 21 year career and retiring from the United States Air Force. For three of those years, Angelo was a member of the U.S.A.F. Thunderbirds, Air Demonstration Squadron. Much of his time with the Thunderbirds was spent as he calls “operation smile”, a goal that many of the airman had, bringing the Thunderbird experience to children’s hospitals for patients who were too sick to see an air show live. The moto was “If we put a smile on one person’s face, we did our job for the day”.
Over the next 15 years, Angelo helped various Arizona companies with startup operations, operational leadership, standardization of procedures and significant growth. When the opportunity to join Ability Center was presented, he jumped at the opportunity to apply his years of business experience, knowledge of Veterans Administration along with his passion to make people smile.
“Working at Ability Center is both challenging and rewarding. Each customer is different, every level of disability is different; but the end result of giving our customers the freedom and independence through accessible transportation is worth the time and effort”, said Angelo.
