Andrea has performed in varied styles and venues. She has been in numerous plays and musicals as well as choruses and barbershop quartets. One of the highlights of her performing career was at Carnegie Hall, where she sang the Mozart Coronation Mass with her chorus.
Being a performer does not qualify Andrea for running the financial end of BGE, however. What does qualify her is that she owned the first retail computer store in Worcester, MA. She grew the business from 2 people, her and her partner, to a $4 million dollar operation with 28 employees. Then she sold it. Now Andrea is the COO for BGE.
Andrea hired Benny to DJ her daughter’s wedding and was thrilled with the result, which is why she is happy to be part of this quality business.
