If you don’t change with the times, you could get left behind. That could help explain how Angiuli & Gentile LLP has stayed in business for over 30 years and is celebrating
its 25th anniversary with the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce.
“We call ourselves a full-service law firm. What we’ve done over the years is we have adjusted and adapted to whatever changes were happening in the legal field. We modified our operations plan,” said founding partner Annamarie Gulino Gentile.
One thing that hasn’t changed is how the partners understand the importance of the Chamber.
“My family’s business — which was a car dealership — was a member of the Chamber of Commerce before I opened the law firm, said founding partner Gary Angiuli. I sort of grew up knowing that you needed to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce,” “My dad was a big believer in it”.
“We had been to Chamber of Commerce functions so this was sort of a continuation for me when I opened my own business. It really wasn’t a question as to whether I would join the Chamber of Commerce. It was more of a given because I knew it was vital to the economy of Staten Island,” he said.
Gulino Gentile also shares a unique perspective about the Chamber since she served as Chairwoman during 2015 and 2016 and is currently Chairwoman of the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce Foundation. “For me, becoming active helped me realize all the benefits of the Chamber membership and all the Chamber does for businesses and the community on Staten Island.
