Rui is the Warehouse Manager and has worked for Jamestown Distributors for a total of 11 years. Prior to that, he worked in retail for seven years. At 37 years of age, Rui has 19 years of management experience (he was an early bloomer!). Born in St Michael, Azores, he was raised in Fall River, MA. and is fluent in two languages â English and Portuguese (four if you want to count Gibberish and Pig Latin.)
Rui's first job at Jamestown Distributors consisted of boxing hundreds of fasteners into boxes of 100, and now he has been managing our warehouse since 2006 (a true success story). In addition to managing our inventory, Rui and his awesome team ensure that all of our orders are picked, packed and shipped to our customer daily. When not here at Jamestown Distributors, Rui enjoys the Boston Red Sox, the New England Patriots and is an even bigger fan of the Boston Bruins. As a season ticket holder you can also find him at every home game of the Providence Bruins. When he was a kid, Rui was a goalie in street hockey and claims that he was pretty good, one of the best. Weâll have to challenge him to a game and see how true that is.
