MakoRabco, a nationwide supplier of buildings and construction-related services for the self-storage and boat/RV-storage industries, announced that Dick Bettencourt, regional sales manager for the Northeast, has retired after 23 years with the company. His position will be assumed by Darrell Betley, according to a press release.
Bettencourt joined the former Rabco Enterprises LLC in August 1999 and established himself as one of the company’s top sales representatives, the release stated. The longtime company veteran indicated he was “exceptionally proud” of the friendships and relationships he forged with clients.
“I would say that every client’s story is interesting, [from] the novice with no storage experience finding their way to the repeat builders with profound experience,” Bettencourt said. “I think that is the part I really enjoy—each client’s story in the self-storage business and how each is unique.”
Among Bettencourt’s favorite memories and things he’ll miss the most are assisting customers with intricate development projects, traveling for business and the camaraderie experienced at tradeshows and client dinners. “Times produced experiences and memories that are priceless and will bring me endless smiles for years to come,” he said.
MakoRabco specializes in self-storage and boat/RV-storage building design, supply and installation. The company formed in March when Mako Steel Inc., founded in 1993, and Rabco Enterprises, founded in 1988, joined forces. The company operates from offices in Carlsbad, California, and Winter Garden, Florida.
