Business Manager Tony Sapienza
B.M. Rogers Taps Sapienza for Assistant B.M. Post
January 23, 2018 - IBEW Local #1837 Business Manager has appointed Anthony “Tony” Sapienza to be the next Assistant Business Manager from New Hampshire, effective June 1, 2018. Brother Sapienza will be succeeding longtime Assistant Business Manager Tom Ryan, who plans to retire on that date.
Tony will be taking a leave of absence from Eversource NH, where he began work as a System Electrician for Public Service Company of New Hampshire (PSNH) more than 32 years ago. Brother Sapienza has served his union as an E-Board member, a Chief Steward and as Unit 2 (Manchester) Recording Secretary for over 20 years. He was recently re-elected by a wide margin to his second term as an alderman for the City of Manchester.
“I’m grateful to my union for the wages that allowed me to raise four kids,” Tony said. “The union paycheck and our premium pay made a big difference to my family.”
The 57-year-old Sapienza and his wife Shirley have been married for 33 years and have four adult children.
“I’m looking forward to helping more union members as I’ve helped those around me and expanding the scope of my work,” Sapienza continued. “I’m looking forward to meeting (IBEW) members from our other companies.”
Rogers was clearly pleased that Sapienza has agreed to take the reins from Brother Ryan.
“I’m happy that Tony has accepted the position,” Rogers said. “Given his lengthy experience in bargaining contracts, I believe he’s the right fit for the job.”
