Title: CEO & Owner
Company: Grasshopper Heating and Cooling
Location: Albany, New York, United States
Amanda Triolo, CEO & Owner of Grasshopper Heating and Cooling, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in business management and building development.
An entrepreneur and building development expert with a strong background in accounting and financial management, Ms. Triolo has been the CEO of Grasshopper Heating and Cooling since 2016. A graduate of Schenectady County Community College, Ms. Triolo studied computer science and accounting and quickly recognized her passion for business administration. In 2012, she joined the accounts payable department of Chris’ Coffee Service, Inc., rising to become the company’s accounts payable manager when the current manager recognized her potential and recommended her for promotion. Ms. Triolo remembers her time at Chris’ Coffee Service, Inc., as a period of personal and professional growth and opportunities to deepen her knowledge of the field, explaining that “she learned how much can be accomplished when you lead people properly.” She left the company in 2015 “empowered to lead others to be the best they can be,” and took the helm of Grasshopper Heating and Cooling the following year.
At the time, the company was struggling financially and on the verge of closure. Under Ms. Triolo’s guidance, Grasshopper Heating and Cooling was rebuilt into one of the area’s leading HVAC service providers, bringing in more than two million dollars in revenue in 2020. Ms. Triolo considers her success in rebuilding Grasshopper Heating and Cooling to be one of the highlights of her career, particularly as a young female executive entering the building services industry for the first time. She was named one of the Next Generation of Women Builders in 2018, and is an EPA-certified RRP Lead Renovator. Ms. Triolo continues to broaden her reach, co-founding Simple Solar New York in 2020 and joining the board of Things of My Very Own, Inc., a nonprofit providing crisis intervention services to children impacted by abuse and neglect, in 2021. Ms. Triolo looks forward to the coming years as a chance to expand and keep leading her team to be the best they can.
