Ernie earned a degree in engineering from Mount San Antonio College and studied civil engineering with a concentration in commercial construction and land development at California Polytechnic State University. He began his early career overseeing commercial construction and multi-family land development projects for his family’s construction company. Later, he went on to spearhead sales and marketing for a leading Cambridge-area pharmaceutical manufacturer where he opened 150 distributors across the U.S. and trained a 600-person sales staff. He credits much of his successes today to the mentorship he received from his college championship track team coach, Hilmer Lodge, and his business mentor, Cullen Crawford, a leading industrialist and inventor. Ernie’s father taught him to aspire to be the best at doing every task in life.
He began his real estate brokerage career more than forty years ago at Algonquin Industrial Real Estate in Needham, MA. He then became a commercial real estate top producer at Boston’s Ryan, Elliott & Company and later a senior vice president at Hunneman Commercial Company.

He is devoted to giving back to his community through his involvement on numerous town committees, business groups, the Rotary and the Greater Lynn School Work Partnership. Ernie founded The Lynnfield Business Coalition for Better Schools.
