Vice Volunteer Rita Mantel

Rita was fortunate to grow up in a family that just assumed that anything that was needed for the family, from a major addition to the honeymoon cottage that kept growing with the family, to new clothes for everyone, would be a DIY project. As the eldest of seven, she spent many hours working next to her dad, learning how to use woodworking tools and techniques for various construction projects.

Her knowledge of basic building was useful as CFO and partner in Scale Reproductions, Inc, in Fairhope, Al. With the acquisition of Permatherm, Inc, in 2005 she and her partners managed and grew a specialty building materials company into a leader in their industry.
