EDWARD S. CAMPANELLA-RODRIGUEZ
PRESIDENT

“Service excellence is a habit.”


Edward S. Campanella-Rodriquez is the President and founder of MBI Group.  Mr. Campanella’s vision and hands-on direction has enabled the growth of MBI from a small interiors firm to a top rated general contracting and construction management organization.  The firm serves many of the leading corporations in the Greater New York metropolitan region.  The company is comprised of three construction divisions: Interiors, Mission Critical and Core & Shell.

A 25-year construction industry veteran, Edward S. Campanella-Rodriguez began his work as an apprentice and rose through the ranks of companies such as Ryder and Morse Diesel International.  He pursued his education at the New York City Technical College where he earned a degree in Building Construction Technology. When Mr. Campanella graduated in 1984, he sought to change the perception of the construction marketplace, and in 1987, he began his own company—Manhattan Business Interiors, Inc. more commonly known as MBI Group.

MBI Group has been renowned in the construction industry for 22 years and prides itself on its core values of innovation, integration and integrity— integral components of every MBI construction project.  The firm has completed signature installations for recognized industry leaders including The Boys' Club of New York, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, W&M Properties, Yeshiva University, CB Richard Ellis Real Estate, Newmark Knight Frank, Rachael Ray, Swig Equities LLC and ConEdison Substation @7WTC.

The firm’s reputation, illustrated by a number of repeat commissions, is built on MBI Group's unprecedented ability to integrate the talents of every project team member, resulting in seamless and confident teamwork unmatched throughout the construction industry.  Mr. Campanella’s personal philosophy—"service excellence is a habit, not an accident"—drives the MBI team to reach the highest level of quality construction and client satisfaction. 

Mr. Campanella is a member of several industry associations and has served leadership positions at philanthropic organizations including The Boys' Club of NY, the ASPCA and United Cerebral Palsy (UCP).  Inspired by Mr. Campanella’s involvement in UCP, MBI Group repeatedly sponsored the UCP of Greater Suffolk’s Traditional Golf Classic to benefit the 3,000 children and adults with disabilities served each year by the agency’s programs and services. Mr. Campanella is an active member in the construction industry. His affiliations include memberships with The Regional Alliance and the New York Building Congress. As a minority business owner, Mr. Campanella also participates as a member of the Association of Minority Enterprises of New York (AMENY).
