Henrietta Town Leader
Click for Biography
“Everything I am today is the product of who I have been.” That is Frank DiSano’s philosophy and one which he has identified with for many years. As the Town Leader for the HRC (Henrietta Republican Committee), Frank lives by that philosophy. It is a constant reminder that has been the basis for his on-going professional success and personal gratification. He constantly reminds himself that if we forget our past, then we are certain to repeat the mistakes we have already made. That is a scary thought, as our students today are rapidly losing touch with our country’s history.
Frank’s background is extensive and multi-faceted. Currently, he is working in what he refers to as his “retirement job” as a school bus driver for the Rush-Henrietta Central School District. Prior to his partial retirement, Frank worked full time as a trainer and business consultant with Dale Carnegie Training. He also held positions in the manufacturing sector for more than 23 years, where he served as customer services manager, facilitator, manufacturing supervisor, third-party auditor, corporate trainer, quality systems manager, and materials manager. His responsibilities included; oversight in the areas of quality systems, auditing, customer service, planning, purchasing, inventory, logistics, and transportation.
Frank earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Divinity. He also holds a NYS certificate in Industrial and Labor Relations. In 1984, Frank was ordained a Roman Catholic priest and served in the Diocese of Rochester for more than six years. All of these pieces, plus a stint as a recreation therapist working in a maximum security hospital for the criminally insane, have prepared Frank for the challenges he faces today.
Frank is quick to point out that understanding people is vital to gaining their cooperation and creating positive relationships in both an individual’s professional and personal life. Successful business professionals know the importance of understanding people. As a result, they emerge as leaders who create synergistic teams and partnerships. As the HRC Town Leader, Frank’s background enables him to lead the growing committee that represents the residents of Henrietta.
Frank and his wife, Ellen, live in West Henrietta, New York. They have two adult children and are the proud grandparents of Aria, Alisha, Isabella, and J. R.
