Gerardo Cianca joined Rocco’s Collision in 2006. A native of Mexico City, Gerardo started a family in 1999 and relocated to Minneapolis, MN.
With a background in engineering and information technologies he traveled thru out the country providing training to collision centers across the nation on the use of DuPont’s mixing and Profit Management systems between 2000-2005.
During a trip to Philadelphia in the summer of 2005 he met Mark Cipparone, owner of Rocco’s Collision, for the first time. At the time Rocco’s Collision was a single facility in the heart of South Philadelphia. As Rocco’s Collision expanded and opened a new facility in Southern New Jersey, Gerardo reconnected with Mark. That second visit will prove life changing. After originally taking an IT position with Rocco’s Collision, the energy, optimism and desire to succeed guided Gerardo’s path.
Long hours, dedication and passion allowed him to expand his knowledge of the industry. Receiving training and knowledge directly from Mark, initially as an auto damage appraiser, his hard work ethic allowed him to grow thru the ranks becoming an assistant manager, a general manager, a member of the Regional Team and currently the Regional Director of Rocco’s Collision. In his current roll Gerardo is in charge of overseeing all locations. His current goals are to keep growing as a leader and mentor for the entire team, promote the personal and professional growth of his employees, and help Rocco’s expand into new markets.
